I am still training every week.
I do my TKD twice a week, can only make boxing cardio classes due to work but attend them once or twice a week if possible.

I have just started up Muay Thai again once weekly.

Only spar about once fortnightly. (definitely not enough)

I've been training TKD twice a week for 5 years, boxing on and off club training/ cardio sessions for about 2 years. Sometimes i go and check out other Martial Arts places for fun.

Train Judo once a week, though that is only because the club in my town is just one day a week, I am planning to attend either another Judo or BJJ club elsewhere in the county in the new year.

Randori/Rolling every class, about 60% of class time.

Training in total about 6 years of different things on and off, 9 months in Judo so far.

I train Krav Maga 2-3 times a week at the moment. I wish I could go more, but I'm short on time. I spar at least once a week.

• Do you still train in MA at least once per week?

Yes, I train BJJ 2-3 times per week and teach karate 2 times per week and Boxing 1 day per week.

• What type of gym/style do you train in currently?

See above.

• How often do you engage in live sparring/rolling?

I roll in every BJJ class, I spar with my students every class(knockdown), I spar with my boxers every Saturday morning.

• How long have you been training in total?

33 years in October

• If you no longer train, what caused you to stop?

The only time I took off from training was during college for football and track. Only because my coaches forbid me from training.

Now, I did stop boxing at age 32, since the "masters" boxing program was not established at that time and 32 was the max age for amateur at that time. Now I just do some coaching and spar with my people. And I was a mediocre boxer(better than .500, but still mediocre).

• Do you still train in MA at least once per week?
Yes

• What type of gym/style do you train in currently?
A field near my apartments, where my stepson and I work out and practice.

I've trained in a variety of styles over the years, various kung fu styles (5 animals, wushu, chin na, hunggar), some bujinkan, some aikido, some kickboxing, some bjj. I'm kind of a rolling stone, and when I move, i tend to try to find something new and different in the area I'm at and take up some training--though as I grow older, I find I don't have as much of a hard-on for hard training as when I was younger.

• How often do you engage in live sparring/rolling?
It's been a few months..was every week until I moved to NoVa

• How long have you been training in total?
29 years, give or take.

• If you no longer train, what caused you to stop?
Money and time. I've got a lot of stuff on my plate, so I don't really have much of either for formal training (though I'm hoping to join my stepson at Pedro Sauer's place when a little of both free up).

I train 2-3 times a week when work allows me. It's very rare that a week goes by without me training at least once.

I train BJJ and have started to train Judo.

I spar every class.

I have trained a total of 16 years. 6 years of wrestling, 10 of BJJ.

Do you still train in MA at least once per week?

Yes, I train 3-4 days a week currently, and 5-6 days a week when not working full time.

What type of gym/style do you train in currently?

BJJ/10th Planet (and a bit of judo and wrestling thrown in...see what I did there?)

How often do you engage in live sparring/rolling?

Every class.

How long have you been training in total?

I did Karate for a year or two as a kid, five years of Aikido, and now about 3 years of BJJ.

If you no longer train, what caused you to stop?

I stopped Karate because I was a kid and thought it was boring (in my defense, it was pretty crappy McDojo) and stopped training Aikido after I moved home and 1) didn't like the local dojo that much, and 2) burnt out on Aikido in a lot of ways and just didn't have a desire to keep training in it.
