    Learning from youtube is completely different than going to class. I know when I first started, I have watched every UFC since since UFC 1 and watched some BJJ videos online for over 15+ years. I thought I knew some moves, but boy was I wrong. It taught me discipline, and to be humble.

    I would say you're more likely to just develop muscle memory to bad technique. You're much better to start fully fresh at a gym. I don't believe you can teach yourself from Youtube, especially as a beginner.

    Why don't you just do body weight exercises, or cardio. Strength and cardio will both be very useful if you can develop these before you eventually do start training.
     
  6. Yep, YouTube lessons can bring you more harm, mostly because of the muscle memory mentioned above. Plus, as a complete beginner you won't be able to tell which lesson is taught by an expert. YouTube videos are better suited for people with experience, who can take from them what is right and leave what is wrong. Aren't there groups you can afford joining?
