Whats everyones vies on this. Say if you got another job and it means you traveling around i.e sales and you couldn't get to your club but you could train at others in the area you are. How does your club take this or do you just do it for yourself and continue to learn against guys you don't normally train with. But then the old well who will you fight for and the old cross training debate crops up again. So to some up do you train at one place when you can or do you split this to train at your club but when your out the area train at the club you can get to or don't train. I know this is a big deal in bjj. Looking forward to the comments on this

If someone gets to train more by training at different clubs then I think you have to do what is best for you - Otherwise you just limit our own development. This may become more of an issue if you're a well known fighter or making big money as the clubs you train for want to claim you as their own...but even so if the trainers have your best interests at heart I think that if you're open with them about your motives they should accept that you goal is to become a better fighter.

i did this for a while, i was taking in a session wherever i could. every gym i went to the people there were really friendly. I dont think its a major issue unless your giving away secrets to potential opponents form the opposing gyms or if your training is purely leisure.
