I started with Judo for a couple years (i think i was 10 or 11yo). Then a bit of wrestling, boxing, and TaeKwonDo/HapKiDo through high school.
Mainly though, I have studied Aikido. I'm 41 now and started when I was around 20. I was a dedicated student for many years but I have a fake hip now... These days I mostly spin around in circles with a stick (well it's called Aikibojitsu and it's all spiritual and stuff but it kinda looks like spinning around with a stick real fancy-like) ;-)
Don't have a dojo anymore but I hardly ever hit myself in the head.
