I've been into MMA and just plain combat since I was little, watching Van Damme, Norris, etc. I really love playing around on the heavy bag and boxing with friends, but now I want to seriously get into martial arts, or boxing moreso. I'm in a predicament now because there is no readily available gym anywhere near me that I would be able to train at and learn how to actually fight. I do have alot of training equipment at my house (weights, heavy bag, all the basics and a little more), and would like to know how to atleast get that edge where, if I have to defend myself, I can hold my own in a brawl. I'm not hoping to become an ace boxer at home, but am looking for a way to train myself at home, pretty much. Can any of you guys give me any advice on working the heavy bag and practicing basics, I'll be able to post videos of myself working the bag and training in May, so I can get criticism on my form.
