Ground Zero

Hey new to the blog here... Wanted to reach out to the group and get opinions on beginning training.

I am a novice to martial arts and wanted to see what folks recommend on getting started on a weekly routine.

I do exercise daily already so I don't need to overcome that hurdle, however mostly what I do is bike riding moderate bench, and light jogging.

I am looking for a school in my area however I am going to be picky about where I commit myself in that regard so may take just a bit.

My bad habits are not stretching so obviously I need to do that for flexibility and meditation which I am trying to get better at which is hard for me because I have a lot of racing thoughts and anxiety issues.

I grew up skateboarding and snowboarding and have spent many seasons of 90+ days on the mountain so I'd say my balance is ok.

Looking at those factors can anyone tell me what else I can do to get started on a full package maybe what you guys did in the beginning.. Not sure what is the best things to put in priority or order, work on any kick/punches w/ a dummy as I do have room for something like that, or work strictly on flexibility and the metal aspect first, find a school, then start practicing at home, books/videos??

Again, I am not just striving for the physical aspect but most importantly the mental as I am a new father and want to be the best I can be for my family, I have many things to work on.

Any and all information, tips, opinions, etc would be great and much appreciated!
