Please Support The Wiki
Here are some ways that you can help Black Belt Wiki to get even better!
- Donate your knowledge & skills – Help by adding martial arts information (i.e. kata instructions) to the wiki and/or suggesting new wiki pages.
- Or Donate a $1 or more – A small donation of a $1 or more will help the wiki to add new content & services. Please click on the “donate a $1” link to make a donation. Thank you for your support!
Become A Wiki Patron
If this free wiki has helped you (i.e. pass a belt test), we hope you will consider throwing a few coins into our digital “tip jar“. For as little as a $1, you can become a Black Belt Wiki patron. Your donation will help Black Belt Wiki to add even more martial arts content (i.e. written kata & form instructions). For more info, visit our Patreon page.
- You will be helping yourself if you become a patron (as we will be adding new wiki content based on our patron’s suggestions). If you are a wiki patron, you can ask us to research specific techniques that will benefit your training.
- Let everyone see your generosity. You could be listed as one of our fantastic patrons! We will be listing the first 10 patrons and all $5 patrons on this page (below). Of course, we respect your privacy and will list only the initial of your last name (i.e. Sally W.).
- $5 patrons and our first 10 patrons can also add links to their school websites. Your Sensei will love you!!
- For less than the cost of a cup of brand name coffee, you will be helping others to discover the joy of martial arts training.
- You will be helping to keep martial arts knowledge free for all martial arts enthusiasts.
This is an experiment (started on 10/15/18) as we hope that visitor donations can offset the removal of most of the banner ads on the wiki. Who wants to see crappy diet ads when researching martial arts techniques? Unfortunately, we can’t do anything about any ads on the Youtube videos because these were added by the video creators. To follow how this experiment is going, you can read our Patron Blog Posts.
However, if we can’t gain at least 20 patrons by Christmas, we will have to rethink this “no ad” experiment. We are hoping this patronage system will eventually be able to pay for the wiki’s webhosting, software packages, etc.
