    Started ITF TKD at age 12. Did that until I was 18.
    Started Judo at 14 and did it sporadically till I was 24.
    Did Kempo for about a year or so when I was 21.
    Was in the Army for three years (18-21)
    Got back into TKD (TSD actually) from 21-22.
    And got back into it again 6 months ago (Chung Do Kwan)
    I am going to stick with this one for a while.

    Started TKD at 17. Did TSD, SKF. Took Hapkido in Korea and had a break from 1989 until 2007 when I started JJJ again at 42. I'm 43 now and haven't gone a week without hitting the Dojo at least twice.

    Trained under a friend of the family who purported to have a black belt in TKD and Judo from the ages of 8 to about 11. Don't really remember many of the details of his training but upon retrospect he seemed to know what he was talking about.

    From the age of 12 to age 14 I trained in Kyuki Do (one of those Korean arts that claims to mix everything from judo to hapkido to TKD to tai chi.)

    At age 15 I trained in Shaolin Kempo.

    At age 16 I trained in Judo for a brief time.

    At age 17 I trained in Kyuki Do again for about two months.

    Currently not in a martial art, but hoping to start BJJ if my schedule allows.

    started at 15yo with Shorin Ryu, then shotokan & aikido, then much time spent/wasted/what have you getting Nidan in Bujinkan, some time doing Small Circle & Danzan Ryu.
    Now, at 33yo, doing Pentjak Silat Ratu Adil, FMA and boxing.

    edit: oh, & some wrestling in hs, I suppose that counts for something.
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
