"Hang a heavy bag/speed bag in your basement and go online to learn some combos.  Not a martial art, but its a fun cardio workout and stress reliever and I consider learning the combos a hobby.  "

"No martial art can be learned solo, you need to find a good teacher, good sparring partners, and go from there.  An additional option for you might be prasara yoga"

"To be honest there isn't much martial arts wise that would be relevant or useful (beyond being intensive exercise) without a partner. You could try and find a partner who wants to train with you in which case there are lots of options. If not…"

Any health gurus around these parts?

 Long time no see, everyone. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a high intensity martial art that can be learned solo. I was researching Capoiera, and while it could be learned without a partner, it wouldn't be very practical. I'm looking for something like yoga that can be mastered alone without compromising the integrity of the culture behind it. I'd prefer that it has the same intensity as running. It rains a lot here so I generally have to exercise indoors and I have limited space. Anyone…See More

Stag day (I'm in the UK, we don't say "Bachelor") for the man who has done everything

I have the honour to be best man for my buddy of over 25 years, and while he will have a big night out at a dance club with his acquaintances and party friends, he wants a stag day out with just me, and be home by midnight. Our wild days are a long way behind us!The challenge is that he has a cushy media job which has allowed him to do pretty much every dream stag activity as part of his work. In return for saying nice things about stupidly expensive watches, he's flown as a passenger in…See More
