You do know that there are other "hacking" Linux Distros you can use.

Kali has a lot of bloat. As an alternative, use *your preferred version of Linux" and add the applications you need to do basic network, port scanning, dictionary attacks etc, and play around with those tools on a VM.

There are several pen-testing simulators online. One I played with before has levels where advancement to the next, more challenging, level is dependant on you finding the info needed to proceed to the next level.

Oh sure and I have checkout BlackArch, but as a starting point towards some form of education, e.g. basic certification for penetration testing, I know about sensepost and Kali.
