Join alot of school type sports that are combat oriented to get your training! Wrestling and foot ball are good.

outside of that get a bunch of guys together that want to learn and start rolling with them. You might need to collect money for gear and such but that seems to be a good start point till you can find money and time.

yea where abouts are you from? If you're American then jump on the wrestling at school and just work your ass off in it.

Find a job, I heard McDonalds was hiring near your area :) Got a lawnmower? Start mowing your neighbors lawns and get paid.

just do some real explosive circuits and train on heavy bags. That'll shread you down and keep the muscle while building power. Why do you want to lose weight though if you are all muscle? Don't worry about finding fights haha, just train, you got a good few years ahead of you before you start looking into having amateur fights. Get into a club, wrestling, BJJ, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing... something to give you a strong base.

what asa said........

JUST DONT GO INTO ANYTHING PREMATURELY!!! this is a major thing. if you get inthere and cant stick with it because youve gone in at a bad time for yourself then a second chacne is hard to come by due to self motivation.

No money...wow...this is tough especially because striking without a trainer to correct your form can be dangerous. But I will give you some tips. Do Calisthenics, Plyometrics and running on different days. When it's raining or snowing do burpees.

Shadow box in front of a mirror and look up the following people on google or youtube. Ross Enamait and bass routine. Look up Muay thai, boxing, BJJ and wrestling techniques and drills and follow those.
