How many martial art clubs or gyms (over the years) have you belong to and what disciplines were they, this includes private tuition for more than one day from a martial art instructor?

Myself for example:

Boxing 2
Judo 1
Archery 1
Karate 1
Krav Maga 1
Aikido 1
TKD 1
JKD 1
Tai Chi Chuan 1
Wing Chun1

Now it is your turn.

This is not a game where the highest number wins.

This is more of a way to understand how focused some maists are with one discipline where others have chosen a path of adversity.

Perhaps this is also a simple way of getting to know each others with similarities and differences at a glance.
