Add Information to Black Belt Wiki

If you would like to add some information to Black Belt Wiki, please use the form below. We are looking for help with kata instructions, terminology, missing techniques, spotting broken links or videos, etc.

Benefits for Adding Information

  • You will be helping beginners to better understand techniques & kata or learn about your martial arts style.
  • We will also reference your school or blog and link back to your website in the reference sections of wiki pages where you add content. Free promotion for your school or blog is always good!!! 🙂
