I took Neipan Kempo Karate for 7 years before quitting. Oddly enough, I had a vivid dream of a sparring match a week ago.

Used to take Tae Kwon Do.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

I did Aikido for about 2 years.

For the past couple months I have been taking Wing Chun (Kung Fu) classes...

I plan on continuing...after I recover from some injuries...(non-Kung Fu related).

I take Taekwondo. I've been it it for almost two months, and I'm shootin' for getting my green belt this month.

Took karate for 6-ish years, then quit and started Kobudo.

I'm trying to get into Historical European Martial Arts, but there aren't many study groups for that in small-town central Missouri.

It seems pretty common in Texas, however. (I envy several members here in that respect.)

Boxing, BJJ and some limited Muay Thai. Unfortunately I can't do anything even resembling a contact sport for the next 6 months as I've been put on Warfarin. I guess I'll take something up that has less chance of injury for a while, like hackysack, or competitive eating

Sparred with a weapons club for four years in college; not quite as formal as a class, but we covered a lot of ground. Broadsword, spear, double-headed axe, transition rapier, etc.

Trying to get a club together in my area along the same lines now that I'm out of school.

Tae Kwon Do, off and on from 3 to 10, than hard core for 14 to 17.

At 14 i came back b/c we moved to a more well rounded martial art.

We started going to the ground and fighting.
More MMA.

It was fun. I got to black belt and was really good.
I quit b/c it did not challenge me anymore.

I've been practicing Taekwondo for 15 years. Also, I have studied Tangsoodo, Hapkido, and Kung Fu. I would love to get more into Hapkido, but its difficult to find a quality school.

I just started Kendo lessons last winter. Once a week. So I've had about 20 lessons or so.

I have been practicing Krav Maga for over ten years now. I haven't done much of it for a couple years, except for some light sparring with a gym buddy. But I used to teach Krav Maga as part of a women's self-defense course, several years ago in Austin.

And yes, I DO know that KM is not really considered a martial "art" by purists. It is mostly just down and dirty self-defense & street fighting tactics. Developed by the Israeli Special Forces--The Mossahd.

Yeah, I boxed Golden Gloves and PAL from the ages of 14-18. And also was in a boxing club in college, for two more years. About seven years ago I took-up Tae Kwon Do. Probably had lessons twice a week for about four of those years, with some time away..I am currently a Blue Belt. (The Tree Reaches toward the Sky for New Heights!")
I co-own a CrossFit Box in Central CA. Me and about a dozen members spar with various MMA techniques once in awhile. in fact my Box caters to MMA, my partners fought on the UFC circuit for three years and is a Ju Jujitsu red/black belt. (H'es far more skilled than I am and would kill me in a fight. He also has 40 pounds on me and is way stronger).
we just set-up a ring in the Box last winter and its getting pretty popular. I still prefer good old-fashioned boxing. We do three one-minute round "smokers" with 16-oz gloves. Lots of fun.
I began Tai Chi last year and do it in the morning usually as a part of my wake-upm, stretching/meditation routine. If you can call that an MA.
