The many disciplines of martial arts are traditionally practiced in studios with other people to train and spar with. With the pandemic forcing the closures of martial arts studios around the country, this makes it challenging to keep up with your training. Rather than hitting pause, and possibly losing some of what you’ve learned and mastered, it’s time to consider how to maintain your training at home with your own studio or dojo.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t a difficult undertaking. For one thing, you can make use of any workable space at home—like your garage or basement. Plus, it’s easy enough to acquire the equipment you’ll need to train. Here are some resources to help you in that process, and then some.
- Know what it takes to DIY a garage remodel.
- Consider all that goes into a basement remodel
- Clean up your garage or basement.
- Install the right flooring for your martial arts studio or dojo.
- Choose the perfect punching bags for your training.
- Have at-home drills you can do regularly to benefit your practice.
- Keep your gym clean and bacteria-free.
- Set yourself up with the right cleaning products.
- Practicing Brazilain jiu-jitsu builds confidence, relieves stress, and improves critical thinking skills.
- If you’re a beginner, this book will teach you how to start off right and avoid common mistakes in your jiu-jitsu training.
In addition to having your own martial arts studio, upgrading or increasing usable living space in your home that can be used for other activities (yoga, home gym, flex room) can significantly affect the value of your home. And this can be a huge bonus if and when the time comes to sell.
Creating your own at-home martial arts gym is more than doable, as is keeping up your training at home with the right drills. To get the most out of your studio, make sure to keep it clean and that you purchase the appropriate equipment.
