Take care folks,
The meat and potatoes of martial arts training is what you do on your own outside of class; practice is the only way to improve. The class becomes a clearing house where any errors you make are corrected.

For myself, every morning I do a battery of stretches; some pushups, situps, and leg lifts; and some jogging. Then I cycle through some material from Aikido, Karate, Serak, and Jun Fan, emphasizing a differnt one on a different day. (Kali, has fallen by the wayside, unfortunatley; I should add some stick work to my daily regime! )Of course, if I want to get started quicker, I just do the stretching and condtioning; everyhting else takes time! But there you go.
