I'd advise against going straight into olympic lifts without a base in general weight training. Doing so can lead to injury. They are an advanced style of lift, very technical, and require a base level of strength conditioning first.

If you can lift at all, you can do Olympic lifts.

Pick something heavy.
Do something with it repetitively until something gets uncomfortable.
As long as it blasts your_______it's a great workout.
Holy crap, I got such a pump and I really hurled that weight around using outside forces.
Go me, it's my birfday.

if you want to get better at shots/take downs, as with any technique, practice shots and take downs, work the technique and then the speed will come
for the fitness part if you want to get into better mma shape do what you can from class at home, for general fitness swmming, biking, hiking, jogging, bodyweight exercises. Search the physical fitness forum and pick any of the hundreds of workouts already laid out there

Why are suicides pointless?

I especially like bar complexes for conditioning purposes. A complex is just a series of exercises performed back-to-back without putting the bar down. 3 that I'm doing currently are:
1. Power clean-hang squat clean-hang clean & jerk
rest 30 seconds after each "set" and perform continuously for 10 minutes. Start light, and when you can get over 12 sets in 10 minutes, increase the weight
2. Each exercise is performed for 6 reps before moving on to the next one:
Rest 90 seconds between rounds. Perform 3-5 rounds, depending on your ability.
Using the same protocol as above (6 reps for each exercise, 90 sec rest between rounds):
snatch grip deadlift
snatch high pull
lunge (alternate legs)
jump squat (be careful here)
2 other tools that are useful for conditioning are crossfit (21-15-9 clean & jerk is a killer) and tabata protocols. Google them both for instructions."Even if one's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should be able to perform one more action with certainty."
