    Self-training?

    Okay people, right now I'm thinking what are the ways available which I can self-train (for example kicks or punches etc), until which I have the financial means to attend a martial arts school. In order words I hope to have the basic fundamentals in fighting, though I understand that without a partner or instructor to train with it's impossible to be proficient in a certain martial art. So I just want to train all the basic skills that can be trained individually, and I'm interested in what they are.
    Thank you for all your replies in advance.

    I'd say just try to increase your fitness level until you get some real instruction. You don't want to have to un-teach yourself habits.

    Basically this is the best(and only) answer you should need. General fitness should be the only thing you should be doing until you are able to take classes.

    Do lots of sit throughs, and lots of burpees.
