In my continuing search for my art of choice, i was wondering if MT basics can be learned and trained at home with a good heavy bag? I just bought one. I went to a local MMA gym 2 weeks ago and they want $150 a month. I was going to try this other place near me that a friend of mine works at and they do 3, 6 and 12 month plans. I never liked contracts like this. The WC school is month to month and you can stop at any time. I picked up a good MT DVD. Other than sparring, which is great, MT seems like an art you can essentially learn on your own. My thinking is that I would essentially be paying for some light sparring and some bag holding. Guy wants me to come by tonight to do the tour/go over options.
