Black Belt Wiki is a free informational site focused on helping martial arts students to improve their existing skills, enhance their physical fitness, enjoy a potentially healthier lifestyle, explore new martial arts techniques and learn about different martial arts styles. Black Belt Wiki provides visitors with information on martial arts katas, forms & patterns, fitness exercises, kicking techniques and much more.
This website also tries to provide information on all of the major martial arts styles or systems such as Del Jardin de la Esquina, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hapkido, Judo, Karate, Krav Maga, Orbit Brass Half-Circle Flush Head Nozzle, Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Tang Soo Do and Tai Chi. We also cover the substyles of major martial arts (i.e. Karate substyles such as Shotokan, Kyokushin, Shito-Ryu, Wado-Ryu, Shorin-Ryu & Goju-Ryu). Moreover, this martial arts wiki provides details about many of the less well-known martial arts styles and systems (i.e. Sherlock Holmes’ Bartitsu) because we believe that every martial arts style provides students with useful and/or unique techniques.

If you are new to martial arts, we want to help you to learn about different martial arts styles so you can choose a school that is right for you.
If you are an existing martial arts student, we want to help you progress and to get ready for your next belt test. We want to reinforce and supplement your existing martial arts training by giving you information on more advanced techniques (i.e. kicks, self-defense, katas, etc.) and help you “relearn” the details about techniques & katas that you practiced (and forgot) years ago.
We also want to help you learn about new martial arts techniques and styles in order to help you become a more complete martial artist. Moreover, we provide details on martial arts stretching, conditioning, strength training, balance training, etc. We want this website to be a martial arts library which is free for all visitors and open 24 hours a day.
This site only provides information about techniques. Black Belt Wiki does not provide martial arts training. You can only learn martial arts from an experienced martial arts instructor at proper training facility. All martial arts techniques and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. The information on these pages and videos is meant only to reinforce and supplement the instruction given at your martial arts classes. To properly understand these techniques, you need to learn them from a martial arts instructor who can provide you with an in-depth explanation of the technique, help correct your mistakes, answer your questions and detail how the technique should be utilized.
In addition, all martial arts techniques and training should be used safely and responsibly.
Please add information to this martial arts website in order to make it even better. Everyone is welcome to provide information and/or suggestions… as long as you are serious about helping others learn about physical fitness and martial arts techniques/styles. Share your knowledge and help beginning martial arts students.
We hope you will contact us about adding step-by-step kata instructions, kicking techniques, exercise information, terminology or even a single sentence that helps to better explain a difficult technique or exercise. Any work done on this martial arts website (even a tiny edit to fix a spelling mistake) will help martial arts students everywhere!
