 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…Continue

"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.  "

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

Introduction

Hi All,My name is Nick Vogelgesang (it's German, spelling my name in kindergarten was an adventure). I'm a recent college graduate and have been following the blog for about two years now.

Being just out of college and never having travelled further out of the country than…See More
