Default Anyone train in combat sports/martial arts?

Just wondering if anyone else here trains in combat sports (i.e. boxing, kickboxing, MMA, etc) or martial arts. I currently train in boxing (being doing it for almost two years now) and in Tai Chi (been doing that for 6 years and I teach it on the side). I've also trained in Muay Thai for three years and before that did Capoeira for 4 years. I've had 4 kickboxing matches and one Muay Thai match (there are different rules in case you're wondering). I'm looking to get at least one amateur boxing match in the near future.

Look forward to talking shop with anyone else here that trains.

Started with Ju-Jutsu, then small period Karate and Taekwondo, switched over to Kung fu Wing Chun and Tang lan) and Jeet Kune Do. Got a knee injury and used that time to practice Tai Chi. Atm I am considering to start Ninjutsu or Muay thai/MMA (or both).

In all honesty I don't know what type it was. I competed a couple of times but was never that great at it.
