    Practicing defense by yourself

    I am a college student in the middle of nowhere and there are no martial arts gyms any where close. I have boxed for the past few years and want to get back into it. There is a bag at the school gym which i hit and i also shadow box. Is there any way for me to practice my defense other then just shadow defense drills? thank you

    Post on Craigslist and / or local papers seeking others with a similar interest. If there is a college, there will be at least a few people who would likely want to train and possibly even start a club. You would be surprised at how many martial artists, even trained fighters, in many areas.

    If this fails, work on your cardio, keep punching the bag and shadow-boxing.
    Good luck.

    I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.
