    I don't recall a thread talking about who does or has done Martial Arts of any kind. I'll start...

    Aikido, some 15 years ago, stopped.

    Tae Kwon Do for 3 years had to quit because of a severe lack of money.

    Judo and Kung Fu - but not in the last 20 years. I did Judo as a kid and the great thing is that a lot of the early training taught you how to fall. This training is ingrained on me and even as an adult I when a take a fall I instinctively know to do it. It's saved my butt a couple of times.

    Shotokan karate, for the last 7 years, got my first don (black belt) last year under Sensei Okazaki, the man who founded the ISKF.

    By the way, if money is an issue for anyone, check out local colleges/universities. There are usually clubs, and a lot of the time they are free, and the clubs i have been associated with are very open to having non students join as well.

    My father (Filipino) was disappointed in the classes offered here in the states (very commercialized.. over sensationalized). He taught me when I was young as something to keep me busy during the summer and for some discipline. Overtime, he invited my friends because we all needed something to do. As time went by the "classes" stopped but his lessons in self discipline never did. A part of me wishes we both had the opportunity to continue...
