When it comes to training, I have a couple different things going on: there is my Wing Chun training, and my fitness training. For fitness, I am going by several home-based workout programs that I bought from Team Beachbody. When it comes to my martial arts training, that is limited by the amount of time I can get around other people who practice! Here are my future plans for both.
*Get back to Sunday morning classes at Skidmore to practice Chi Sao.
*Finish my wooden dummy construction so I can practice on that.
*Join up with some people in an MMA club who will be training in the same facility where I can hold my Wing Chun class. This is to get me outside of my comfort zone instead of training only with other Wing Chun practitioners.
*Every now and then, get together with my friend James who can help me film some videos featuring Wing Chun being used in self-defense scenarios. This may not be the most realistic, since they would be planned drills at first, but over time I would envision him coming at me in improvised ways, so I would NOT know what he was going to do before the camera started rolling.
The first item on this list is already done, and the second one is in process. If anyone reading this is curious what some of these programs are like, then please leave a comment below, and I will reply.

Most of these programs last 60-90 days. I added up all the running times, plus factored in 5-7 days of rest between programs, and found out that this schedule will last me approximately 850 days. That’s about 2 years and 3-4 months of working out right there!
