I study 1, Tang Soo Do. I wish I could learn another one so I could get ground work, but I don't have enough time and my Dojo only teaches Tang Soo Do.

I guess I am like many of the posters here. I started off with Okinawan Karate and still study it. In the past 20 years, I have studied 3 other arts extensively (Praying Mantis Gung-Fu, Kali and Silat).

While I do not currently train under an instructor of the other 3 arts, my focus for the last 10+ years has been to relate all other training to my Karate and find the commonalities.

I have my base art which I have attained my highest rank, but but being a military brat, I had the opportunity to train in various arts. I have trained in American Style Boxing, American Style Wrestling, Kajukenbo, Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, Wing Chun, Okinowan Shorin Ryu, Monkey Kung Fu, Judo/Yudo, and 3 different styles of Hapkido. To date Hapkido is my favorite.

Two, TKD and Judo and loving it.

Who put 4 or more? That sounds like a full time job to me!

Interesting results so far. Nearly 70% as of this moment practice more than one style. I thought that would be much lower.

I guess I'm just lazy!

Not lazy, just some of us never had the opportunity like you did Matt where they learned other martial arts prior and then have progressed through them and have settled on one specific.

I got lucky in choosing my a school that does many but the main focus is TKD/BJJ. Plus I and a handful of others train BJJ separate and go to another school to train to further these skills. If I had to choose today what I'd train for a martial art there is no doubt it would be BJJ. However I've gone almost 5 years in TKD and would like to continue on with it as well.

I dont 'study' anything at the moment. Savate is what I have done most consistently, but I have come to accept my nomadic dillitant status in MA. Karate, taijutsu, JKD, FMA, Sombo, i have dabled in all to a greater or lesser degree. i think I just have a short attention- ooh! a butterfly!!! *Cord skips off through the sunny fields*
