    Someone we never heard of? For example the founder of Aikido trained in Jujitsu and Judo. I'm sure at some point earlier, someone did more than one art.

    The conventional answer is that Bruce Lee is the father of cross-training.

    Cross-training in martial arts has been practiced since martial arts were created. So the first was probably a Buddhist Monk or Samurai lol.

    Everyone knows it was Ramirez.

    The dude was born in 896 BC and has been training for like 2000 years or something.

    Some guy we never ever heard of. Hell Pankration was MMA and an Olympic Sport before Christ was born. So I highly doubt we can reach back that far or further to come up with a name for you.

    are you saying the first "martial artist" or the first "martial art" ?

    If you're talking about the first martial artist, you're never going to find that person's name because they're ancient. If you're talking about modern cross-training by a martial art (collectively) that's a different discussion

    also, Ramirez was an effete snob.
