You can do dips on chairs. Do you have access to any of them?

Style: Kung Fu
I don't trust my furniture with me doing dips on them. All my chairs are folding chairs or top heavy chairs that wobble.

Many parks around here have pull-up bars etc. Nothing like that around your area?
Well, you have an excuse for everything. When your motivation is high enough, you won't let those little things get in your way. I used to go to an elementary school every evening to do pull ups and dips on their playground equipment. Until I graduated to my own pull up and dip bar. Then eventually to the perfect dip bar.
Go sell your plasma a few times, then use the money to buy a dip bar!

I'll hold off on selling my plasma for now...
I'm sure there's a park somewhere around to UCF area with a bar I can use, so I'll look around next time I go for a run.

Leg training for FREE- Go find a cross walk over a HWY, run up across and down other side about 20 times...After you do that, go to any city block an walk along the curb, stepping up with your left foot all the way down then cross an do the right..Sounds kinda of gay but you will feel it...

All right, here's my workout routine:
Route on Google Maps
On bike, I head out from home to Riverside park for quiet Stretching and exercise in the woods near the stream. Then I head off to the school on Alafaya Woods to use their playground for bar type exercises, then I head back home. Total biking distance is about 10 miles. That, plus ChengPenFi's "Body by Fish" link, should be good 6 nights a week, right?
Keep in mind I'm only looking to increase my ability to perfect fighting technique, increase in strength and speed would only be a useful side effect, not a goal.

Sounds like a great start.
I will note that strength and speed will help you become a better fighter so you should look to actively train those attributes.

And how long until you get to start training? I would just want to be in the best shape possible that way you can get the most out of training when you finally get there. In stead of being the guy who can't stand up, or puking in the corner. If you are in shape, you will be able to train those muscles to do what they are supposed to.
I think your program will do well to get you to that goal.

I will start this routine tomorrow (just scouted out the area an hour ago). So, every night save Sunday, which is reserved for my vidjagames and podcast. My grants come in mid-september, so I plan on enrolling at Wah Lum then. So I have less than 2 months to train.
