I obtained a plantars wart when I was youger from Tae Kwon Do class. A couple of years later I had a wart removed from my finger as well as the plantars wart from my foot. Since those ae a strain of HPV, I was reading something, somewhere that said that I may have acquired immunity from genital warts. Is that true? My fingers are crossed.

There are 130 identified variations of HPV. The ones that cause genital warts are different from those associated with plantar warts so you can't count on immunity here.
