When you train solo, how do you train?

It depends on how much time is available on that particular day. Usually itís just one or two things based on whatever feedback was given last time the instructor was present. The basic techniques, warm-up and stretching makes up the rest of the time.

Training alone outside of school/dojo hours requires self discipline and a strong personal motivation. That is the hardest part and the one thing that each person must find by themselves.

For some people, keeping a training log is very effective. Others have different ways of staying motivated to keep up training. Whatever it may be, it is important to continue and switch things around once in a while to avoid getting bored and keep training balanced.

Kata and Hojo Undo for the most part of my solo training!! Other than that, whatever seems to be appropriate for that very moment, whether it be bag training or weights or cardio.

I work on whatever I need most. If it's working on a kata or prearranged stuff, I do that.

Most often though, it's bag work. As much as I tell myself I should be doing other things, bag work always just makes sense to me.

The most important part of training alone is not time or even specific content. It is being consistent and regular with it and setting personal goals for improving.

Training solo is mostly conditioning based, that perhaps is not so solo as like to involve some trees from time to time.

(None ma conditioning, swim, sprint and row for cardio endurance purposes)

Includes some type of way of improving myself, to be stronger to give and take blows.

To be as flexible as possible to be able to kick and move unexpectedly.

Practising as my types of punches as possible to be able to strike from many angles if need be.

Elbows and knees practiced to make use of them in close range combinations with striking and takedowns.

With this in mind using bags and focus mits are too one dimensional for my liking as hitting should also include getting hit, therefore I reserve using them to a minimum most of the time.

I train grabbing sand bags for Chin Na techniques, that are also effective for grabbing opponent's, skin, muscles and tendons or whichever else grabs my fancy, such as the throat, fingers, ears...

I train to win which includes conditioning my martial art movements to be as fast, strong, accurate and effective as possible, any way possible, usually with weights, pullies or resistance bands, just to name a few.

Here is a martial artist who is on the same track as myself, sure train seriously hard but have some fun with it also, gotta have a belly laugh now and then, as it is just as helpful to stay loose and playful along the way.

Sometimes forms work, sometimes bag work, sometimes focusing on specific techniques and refining movements. Sometimes its high impact, and sometimes its slow and repetitive movement of technique.

Isometric exercise for martial artists is something to keep in mind, especially for creating strength in techniques.

This is part of training to win methodology.
