Well between school, work, family, teaching, and what I am currently training in. The only way to add something else would be to have more hours in the day, and longer weeks.
Currently I teach and practice shotokan twice a week. I do Muay Thai 2-3 times a week, the same with BJJ. I also squeeze in Judo maybe if Im lucky once a week. Right now I have school twice a week, and I work 40 hours, 5 days a week. If I had more time available I would love to get back into wrestling and learn a bit more about dirty boxing.

Phew: What I really need is a vacation with lots of Mai-Thais.

Muay Thai. I have some of the basics from shootfighting, but I'd like to pursue striking further.

I would have to say that If I decide to save money to take classes again, then I would finish karate first before anything.

But after that I would like to try something like Wu Shu or Tai chi.

I'm thinking of trying out Judo for awhile. I want to strengthen my breakfalls and learn some ground stuff since we do very little of that. There's a judo class in my town that's put on by the rec department, so it isn't very expensive. The next session for it starts next week, so I'm contemplating trying it out for awhile and seeing how it goes.

For me it would most likely be Jujitsu or Hapkido, simply because i already have sufficient training in Stand-up, and quite like to focus my learning on mostly grappling/takedowns/ground work, which my knowledge lacks in. also, i quite like to learn Ninjitsu,to be brutally honest purely to seem cool, and also mostly to get to breakfalling/ukemi training as well as evasion and weapons training in.

I'm going on a two-week, much needed vacation this summer. I have contemplated where I want to go, but I know I'm going to take a trial course of a MA while I'm there. Most likely Juijutsu, Ninjutsu, BJJ, or Judo. If I like it, I may stick with it, but either way it'll be nice to learn a new trick or two to add to my collection.
