@NoviceInDisguise If you don't have access to a teacher, then we must first set expectations properly: the highest martial skill you are likely to reach (unless you have an innate aptitude for this) is a fairly proficient brawler level. If we agree on this, then there are two things that you must do: basic conditioning and basic stretching. Ignore weight-lifting for now, as it has very specific benefits and isn't worth it early on. For both conditioning and stretching, any "beginner's book" will get you started, and you can refine your knowledge from there on as needed.
