training advice?

hey im only 17 but im seriously thinking of getting into mma. im a 130 - 135 pounds. i cant find anyone around here that wants to train with me and the only matrial arts gym around here tae kwon do. when i move out i defintly plan on finding a gym. i got a heavy bag i do punching and kicking(well best i can do from on the internet)and i got a speed bag and some weights and a bench. the only bjj i kno is from what i get off the internet and its anything but perfect. Can anyone give me some advice in training by myself?

Wrestling is not a bad place to start! Wrestling is outstanding for you cardio and it will teach you basic wrestling skills that will help you in your mma future. Keep looking for mma classes or gyms that offer some kind of mma practice. If your Hs has a wrestling team, I strongly suggest you join!!!
