I've had an ongoing problem the past year or so and it's kept me in and out of my martial arts training about 3 times already. I work security for a union called Local 177 and I'm also a student at John Jay College. My hours at school are steady, but at work they're not. Because of this, I often can't attend martial arts class. I also know this will continue to happen because I plan to join NYPD soon first as a cadet then as an officer. I know there are many people who are still able to balance being an officer and a martial artist, but how do you do it? Any information would help me greatly because I really do want to train but at the same time I don't want to be spending $75.00 a month for dojo fees while not being able to even progress the right way.
