Hi khan187... Where abouts in The UK are you?
you'll be surprised how many people "know about this sort of stuff".
Doing bag work is great but it also has some negatives aswel including:
if you have had no training before, such as correcting your punch/kick technique, you are more likely to develop bad habits when working by yourself,and you'll find it alot harder to be trained by a coach if or when you join a local club.
As for your bag choice: by yourself a cheap bag from argos, the RBK ones are fine for now.
They weigh around 25-30kg and are sufficient for beginners.
when it starts to break up, become worn out and you feel the bag is moving around to much buy yourself something heavier, and use the cheap one for ground work.
