    How many are training people out of the house? Other than limited space and blending of the worlds what advantages/disadvantages do you see?

    there will be obvious restrictions if you are training from home. these restrictions will depend on certain variables and could have restrictive effects upon what type of exercise that you do.

    e.g.
    do you have someone that you can spar with?
    is there someone that can spot you and tell you if youre doing something wrong?
    size of area available?
    equipment available?

      agreed,

      But some see training outside of a traditional school as "more pure", no so locked into promotions and paying the rent. I see value in both. They also argue that you can teach the masses real combat skills in a commercial environment.

      Just some thoughts, jb

        I teach out of my garage and there are some draw backs. One that I have to park my vehicle in my garage everynight, so it doesn't get stolen again, which mean I have to set up and tear down everytime I train my students. I live in a desert, So I have to sweep out garage everyday just to keep up with the dust coming in from pulling my truck in and out. On the plus side I get to train how I want and take who I want as a student. I have no over head, so I am not looking for the cash. I have even told students not to come back for one reason or another. In a comercail location that is hard, you need that money to help pay your bills and yourself. I have a job and teach for fun right now so I get to be picky of who I take on.

            if you were speaking to me, I teach a kenpo/jujutsu/grappling/escrima/mma hybrid. I don't think it would do any good to list my instructors but I have been training for 15 years. If you would like for me to go into more detail I can. But I don't want to waste your time if your not interested.

              Get a training partner,
              go to big park with some punching pads, do some striking combos for 1 hours.
              3 minutes each with intervals, in between do some push-up and sit up and enjoy the sun and weather. Maybe have a meal after.
              Nobody ever bother about it and a few joggers might take notice and try to have a conversation.

                My garage is my santuary. I have it mostly set up for boxing/MT, and weighlifting, but I also invested some money into some really good mats.

                I train in my garage 4 days a week, for about 3hrs a day. It is a lot of work to keep it clean, especially in the winter. But its worth it as I can go out and train whenever I get the urge. And if I get the Urge, I train. In fact, I dont think I've watched any TV or movies at home since I set my gym up.

                The hardest part is that there are very few people that come by to teach me something, and to make me better. So I still go to classes and invite other instructors over to teach.

                    I am totally with you. I have my bag, FMA training dummies and thats all I need. I spend most of my Sunday afternoons working in my garage since the gym is closed.

                        Fortunate, I have a decent sized basement with enough room for my weightlifting and boxing/kickboxing equipment. One advantage about training in my basement is I'm able to workout at my own pace, but it's hard for me to find training partners.

                          I think EmptyneSs is REALLY looking for a training partner.

                              I do personal training out of my home for kickboxers and boxers and for both pro and amateur fighters.

                              the binifit of teaching out of the home. There's alot more one on one training so your able to instruct students to be better fighters at a greater pace.

                              The down side is not having enough sparring partners.
