Listen m8 as a predominantly stand up fighter with an 8-0 record 5 by ko, I know enough to know that theres no substitute for training at a real gym, as I tried training myself when I was younger with a couple of guys in my garage,lol. We all thought we had good technique after watching vids, although it did help a little, it wasn't until I went to a real gym and got schooled by the gyms lower to average fighters, that I learned that it was the place to be if I wanted to learn something that would really help to improve my techniques,and make reactions second nature.
If you can't afford the gym, or there isn't one where you live try looking at Pro Muay Thai(Thai-boxing)or kickboxing techniques as they use more powerful techniques, and this is what the majority of mma fighters stand up is based on, as a lot of traditional karate/tae-kwondo is useless against a good Muay-Thai fighter with rare exceptions (Lyoto Machida). Fighters to watch Bas Rutten,Buakaw Por Pramuk, Gilbert Yvel, Melvin Manhoef, Remy Bonjasky,Anderson Silva, hope this helps bud.

Trainer is the best if you want to learn
because people who teach themselves result in: moving on and growing with "kick in the ass mistakes"

Bottomline, it's a very bad idea to "teach" yourself anything. It's very likely, probable, that you are teaching yourself wrong. Stop thinking of it as teaching yourself, when all it is is you hitting a bag. Find a gym or at least someone that's trained correctly and spar, spar, spar. If you simply must "train" yourself, I use the word train very loosely here, then you must at least get some good instructional DVD's. I'd suggest one of the many Mark Hatmaker DVDs, he covers everything from conditioning to stand up to ground. Still, it'd be a better idea to join a gym.
