(You may need to get a wi-fi booster or use your phone hotspot if your workout space is far from your router). In order for your instructor to see you, you should try to choose a space with lighting (like a window) in front of you. This of course does not apply to outdoor areas. If you can’t get a window or lighting in front of you, try to make sure that you can close any curtains or blinds behind you

  • 7.Martial Arts Equipment?—CHOOSING YOUR TOOLS A standing bag—martial arts supply places offer excellent heavy bag choices that will only take up a 2’x2’ area.
