New guy, please advise
So here's the deal. I'm not new entirely to MMA. I started amateur boxing about 2 years ago and started amateur MMA this year (six months ago).
I do not have the money for a gym (shitty hours at work, low pay). I have been working with a heavy bag, punch mitts, as well as a sparring partner on a decently regular basis. I plan on starting Shotokan, self-taught, through a PDF file containing most of the basic katas I downloaded off the intenet.
NOTICE: I do not have any illusions that this is going to be effective enough to work a my principle sparring art, however I aim only to develop a base from which to build when I get enough money for a gym.
So, I would definitely like constructive critizism as well as any nuggets of wisdom the veterans have. Thanks in advance.
