I study one and occasionally have a go at others when I can find the time. I count that as one.

I believe I study one. It could be argued that I study three (boxing, Greco-Roman and Brazilian jiu-jitsu).

As I don't study them separate from each other, I honestly I believe I just study one - the art of human physical combat. So is that one art or many arts? I suppose the depends on how you define things.

Interesting poll. While I have formally studied 3 arts over the years, I have only ever done 1 at a time. That said, I have poked around informally in other arts, while training formally in something else at the same time.

Bunkai in karate kata reveals many JJ techniques, so each can be taken separately or studied as an amalgam.

Well, I've recently learned a little bit about joint techniques that could be applied in karate. It might make me curious about 'chin na', but it's not the same as studying Tai Chi or Baqua.

I meant the traditional seperate studies/schools. Some folks advocate learning distinctly different studies...so as to not confuse things.

I chose 2. We do TKD/BJJ blended, much like how John noted, however I also train separate just BJJ though there is the odd MMA mixed in as well to both.

I take two, Aikijujutsu, and Systema. Although I also study the sword, I include that in the Aikijujutsu.
