You can teach yourself how to punch (marginally) well enough on your own, but you can't teach yourself standup. You will not be able to learn timing, distance, or how well you deal with actually getting hit by yourself. It is simply impossible to.

Find a gym. Put in the time under a good trainer. That's the only way you'll be able to learn any viable standup skills.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
