    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Solo Training (Im stuck doing it)

    Just like the title says, I am stuck doing solo training. I am deployed and work a night shift. They have BJJ classes here but it is during my shift and on the adjacent FOB so I cant just sneak away for 60 min at the local fight room.

    I am surrounded by a bunch of pansies that do not want to train, we had a contracted company available to teach BJJ, MMA, and Army combatives. I was the only person showing up for 3 weeks straight so the contract was shitcanned. I have sought out other soldiers but no one is interested

    So all I have at my disposal are 3 heavy bags, my bag gloves, wraps, and my jump rope

    My base style is wrestling but thats kind of out at the moment so I figure I will get competent in striking. I boxed in the past and can still throw proper punches but i am obviously rusty

    1. What are some drills for reinforcing blocking punches?
    I found that to be my weakest point during the previous 3 weeks.

    2. Drills for increasing reaction timing?

    3. What are some kicking drills I can do?

    *I am a Soldier in the United States Army and am deployed to Iraq. I am already at a high level of fitness as I have certain goals after this deployment so please refrain from the standard "get in shape", lets leave that part out :)

    What you're asking for is virtually impossible without a partner. Timing and blocking in particular.

    I'd say you are best off to focus on your basic shadow boxing and bag work for a while, until you can find a skilled partner to train with.

    Is there a bulletin board in the fight room?

    No the local fight room is effectively shut down. the equipment sits in a locked tent
    our regular gym has a few heavy bags so i am stuck there. the thing is the bulletin board wont work. the other trainers were advertising for months and there were flyers put up...i would put it out in my meetings and NOTHING. no one was even remotely interested

    **** guess i am stuck pounding on the heavy bag, shadow boxing, and conditioning
    at least i wont have to worry about gassing out when i finally get partners

    Like tao.jonez said, gonna be hard to work your blocking without a partner. One exercise we often do for that, is wall drills. Back to the wall, just defending, your partner punching the **** out of you for the round.

    You could do a lot of other useful things solo, like work on your footwork, ie: moving in half-steps, not moving straight backwards, not having a stance that it too wide or too long, bring every punch back home ( don't let it drop after punching ). All those kinds of "little" details can definitely be worked on. Lots of stuff you can do.

    Sucks that you don't have anyone who wants to also train. Hope it works out.

    You can also take one of those heavy bags down and do some floor work with them. Ground and pound, transition drills, and very basic wrestling throws. You have any friends? I've always been able to talk someone into throwing punches at me as long as I promise not to punch back. That will help with your defense, and maybe they will become interested enough to learn.

    If you have no friends....well, sucks to be you. Stay safe over there!

    Hope you are staying safe over there, soldier.
    Try to get a double-end bag somewhere if you can. They are a good solo training tool.
    But it sucks if you can't even get anyone to do some drills with. You would think it wouldn't be too hard to hook up with some other military guys over there..

    thats a good plan. i will do that
    haha all of my friends work the day shift and i am on nights.

    my shift is the biggest part of having to train alone. if i worked days i could get some of the civilians to drive me to the other Base where they have BJJ and MMA classes


    Also just as OZ says I am going to order a double end bag, i think that will help out some
