Some tips from a dude that has trained alone (did it for a year)
2) develop your overall physical fitness
3) work on your basics A LOT
4) consider switching to another style. I know you don't want to do it, but believe me, there are more similarities than you think, particularly in the striking styles.
5) If you still don't want to switch, bounce around to the intro classes of other styles. I did a few (and I mean as in three) gungfu classes and I am still applying the basic blocking pattern that Sifu Burris taught me (and I still refer to him as Sifu. I just couldn't afford Sifu at the time. I can now, but I live too far away. However, I am considering trekking out there on a monthly basis once I reach 1st Dan at Tompkins, as black belts basically self train at that point in my current system). You'd be surprised. I had to leave a TangSooDo school due to a move. Before I left, the master just gave me a few tips, tips I am still working on, and tips that have saved my buttocks. Sometimes if a teacher thinks you are really serious but knows it's not your fault that you can't train all the time, they will give you good ADVICE that can go a long way.
6) do stance work
7) do meditation. The guy I refer to as a Jaded Master, he meditates now. He's gotten his stuff down to where he doesn't have to think about it. If he can fling a man (myself) across the room who has a good 85 or more pounds on him and is nearly half his age, I think he may be on to something.
8) talk about your situation around people who have martial interests. Like someone mentioned, most really GOOD senseis don't advertise.
9) again I say consider switching, but as in to a complementary deal, like Aikido, Judo, Yudo (korean judo), Aikijitsu, Jujitsu. Still keep up the Uechi, so that way, when you can go back to where your heart is (Uechi) you may know some other stuff to apply to it.
10) get the Tao of Jeet Kune Do. Read it three or four times, "take what is useful" and work out of it. Bruce was on to something!
