Judo when I was about 5 or 6.. took that for a couple years
Then I studied some Muay Thai, Capoeria, and Japanese style jujitsu with freinds who studied those arts
THen I took Ninjitsu but the instructor taught us other styles as well more jujitsu as well. I also practiced with some of the guys on my school wrestling team.
I have also studided a few forms of kempo ( I do not recall the style off hte top of my head I have it at home,) but its focus was more of the samurai arts, alot of Akido mixed in from what I understand.
Then since then I have studided a little Inshryu(sp?) and Tang Soo Do.
granted this is over basicly a 23 year period, plus I have played hockey, soccer, baseball, tennis lacrosse football and all kinds of other sports
