    Self Teaching

    I lost my job a few months back and I can't afford to go to my classes. Im wondering what can do to not lose what i've learned and how to learn other skills by myself and keep up endurance. I am new to this to please try not to beat down this newbie to hard.

      Did you talk to the instructor? That is the first thing I would do.

        Danzan Ryu? Lima lama? Lua? Or maybe his instructor founded his own system.

          Well, couple different things here, brah.

          1: Hawaiian JJ? Wuzzat? No big.
          2: Keep up endurance? Do endurance training - cardio and muscular endurance. Lots of free things you can do with a pair of running shoes and bodyweight exercises. That's covered in other threads, poke around.
          3: Not lose your current skills? Practice. Dance through moves in the air if ya haveta. Ask your teacher for help, drills, advice, and other people with your situation. Bet they're around.
          4: Learn other skills? Keep in touch with teacher and seniors at school, get a workout in now and then w/them. Find senior people from other styles who teach free or cheap, trade techniques as much as is OK for you, things like that.

          Been there, done that. Many times over the years. Biggest thing I'd say? Don't quit. Long as you're still doing something, you're at least not going backward too fast.

          Sheet, I'm pretty much there right now. Trying to find a school I can make it to and afford and fit my schedule in with, I'm doing solo drills and some partner work with friends who also aren't attached anywhere.

          It comes, it goes. Keep training and you'll work out okay in the end.

          My opinions only (and who am I anyway), all free and worth every penny you pay for em, so take with many grains of salt.

          Thanks fer readin,

            push ups, sit ups, pull ups, road work to stay conditioned

            get on craigs list and post an ad for sparring partners or people to swap techniques with.
            just be careful about who you meet up with and you might find some cool training buddies.

                obi_juan87 I also train in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. I think you could do most of the Yawara board in a solo "shadow boxing" mode and you could work on the tumbling and falls (ukemi). I have a hard time making my moves realistic when "shadow boxing" for the throws and other techniques due to the lack of a training partner's dynamic weight. You might try switching to training for striking discipline, lots of those techniques can be trained in a shadow boxing mode.

                Good luck with whatever you find that works for you.

                  The advice is all good, but why is this thread in the WMA Forum?

                    Good point, and I'm guilty of not mentioning that too.

                    Suggest relocating it to... well, could be Newbietown, maybe Basics or even YMAS?

                      Lets look at this from another mindset (outside the box if you will...)

                      Why don't you take the opportunity to try something else entirely? I'm sure you can find a club that requires no fee such as wrestling or maybe even judo or boxing. It never hurts to learn something new for your toolbox.

                      Try asking people at the school if they train or would be interested in training outside the school. My buddies and I split the price of a small 10x10 puzzle mat for doing drills etc in his garage. Maybe someone already has that setup and could use the partner.

                      How about Craig's list and the like? I'm sure there are garage groups out there who wouldn't mind someone new. You teach them X and they can show you Y. Win-Win

                      edit: I see this has already been mentioned lol... end edit.

                      Last but not least are you in Hawaii? I don't want to assume, but if you are, why not train with the Dog Brothers for example? I guess it depends on which island you live but do you follow my thought process here?

                      Outside the box... You could very well end up with some new friends or a new skill set to compliment the one you have.

                        If you are not too proud ask the teacher if you help clean the school can you work out for free actually by being at the school cleaning the students may ask you to jump in to work out with them-even if they practise tactics on you you will learn to defend-defending is as important as being the attacker-shope that helps el lobo blanco (whitewolf) "speed of light"

                          you could try this with rubber tubes / bike inner tubes.
                          i used to do hundreds of these everyday and it helped with my seoi nage.
