so right now I'm living in bournemat have been for 6 months now. For a while I've been travelling and training a bit. But I got myself a decent enough job and settled again. Close to where my kids are now. I'm training at a Krav Maga club mainly and teaching there on Sunday mornings for kid classes. The training is fine and enjoying it. But an issue I'm having with the instructor is he wants people to travel around a lot for camps and events. Now my answer is no. Because these events are not cheap and I can't afford it. It's as simple as that especially these trips to Israel that they keep bringing up. Now a trip to Israel from the uk is very expensive plus accommodation and the overall event just to much. Me and a few guys at the club are in the same boat. I stopped travelling around because I needed to help support my daughter who's been living in America with a boyfriend and long story she ended up with not a lot of money because if him. But now she's back in UK working but still very much struggling and I'm helping where I can. But anyway the instructor said to me the other day. "You want to come to Israel for a week long camp?" I said I couldn't because if the money. The look on his face looked disgusted at me and he said really? I said yeah his response was "well there's hundreds of excuses that can be made" then walked off. I was just like what.....it's not an excuse it's a fact I can't afford to be travelling to Israel then later he addressed the whole class saying similar stuff like oh if you want to progress you must travel and you can make excuses about time and money but really you have to decide what's important in your life and if you want to succeed or want to be second best. Honestly that really pissed me off bcwayse my family is far more important than going to Israel and sucking up to a few high grades, I spoke to a few friends there and they were a bit annoyed to saying he'd been trying to guilt them into going to. Thing is the instructor runs his own business that's spread around the world so money is no issue for him so he expects everyone else to be the same. I have tried to explain things to him but he's always brushed me off before I could get it out. So today I made an excuse and said I was working so I didn't help run his kids class today and I sent him an email explaining my situation and his response was simply. "Guess you won't ever reach the top level" Honestly that's just completely irritated me. He's been acting like a jerk the last few weeks making comments about my other training and if I threw a roundhouse kick in sparring he'd say stuff like oh roundhouse kicks don't work in real fights (apparently he's not a fans of them) but it's just annoying. I'm tired of dealing with all this junk. I just want to train and having all this just really wrecks your motivation to train.
