I Trained out of my backyard mostly alone off of home made equipment most of my life and last year I won the camo mma state title, and Im currently 5-0 with 4 first rd subs. Its more important how smart you train and how seriously you take it than the opportunities you have to train at a gym. And its definitely better than not doing anything.
I agree. Working out at home in addition to visiting the gym once a week was what made me improve a lot. My parents' home was Miles away from the next city and we had no car. So I had no choice than to workout at home. Over the years I have met a decent amount of self-tought fighters who learned more from watching Bruce Lee movies than from a mediocre trainer.
As for a home gym I had a heavybag hung next to the trunk of a large tree. I could not attach the bag to the house or anywhere else so it was hanging on the side of the tree. I mainly used it for kicking. Punching the bag with the tree behind it was kind of painful with regular bag gloves. A friend of mine told me about Top Ten gloves and their soft padding. Once I had the money to buy them I was also able to box. I would recommend them over any other gloves just for the health of your hands. Skip rope was another thing I did every day.
