Not very many, but still more than I was ever going to see otherwise.
I'd personally do it more like PK suggests on the MyGURPS page: combat, sport, and art are separate skills, but you can buy off the -3 penalty for crossing skills as an average technique. If you think that's too expensive replace it with a perk to eliminate the -3 penalty, like Off-Hand Weapon Training does.
My name is spelled without a B. Like Minnesota.
