Maybe enter some tourneys to expirence competition. Nothing beats the real thing but if your really focused you should pick up the basics pretty good.

Right now I'm making minimum wage, going to school full time, and about 80% of my paycheck goes into savings so I can transfer to a bigger school next semester. From what I've looked into, most of the gyms I've visited/researched are going to run me $100+ a month, and I simply can't afford it. Am I just SOL? I don't know how much classes usually cost, so I have no idea if these places are reasonable. Is there any way I could learn on my own? What are my options? I'm open to suggestion.
