Those that I’m forgetting, feel free to like or reblog, so that anon can check you out, too!!!

There are a ton of great martial arts blogs in this list in case any of you are looking for more awesomeness for your dashboard. I’m honored that I made it on this list with other greats!

Forgotten! Alas poor Yorick!!

I knew I was forgetting some on my list.

Probably still forgetting some. 😅
Ok, did a little digging. Here’s some more martial arts blogs that I follow.

I think this is all, or most, of the blogs I follow that focus on martial arts. I don’t know how active everyone is, since I haven’t seen some in a while and I don’t talk to everyone (which is a shame) but still, check them out for martial arts, decide for yourselves. =P
One more I didn’t know about
fistoftheequator
I’m sure there are many more, and I would like to see this list grow. If you post about martial arts, and you’re not on this list, feel free to add your URL, so everyone can check you out. I’ll take all URL’s and make one big list later on. Don’t cheat! I’ll check the blogs. Only add your URL if your blog is about martial arts, your martial arts journey, your quest to be a better martial artist, anything martial arts related. =]
Another one I forgot!!!!!!

'nother one! theronindiaries

I keep forgetting, but I’ll keep adding as they come up. Then I’ll make one full list.

Would be cool, if some of you (or all of you) sent me a picture of you in uniform or with your belt, to add some life to the list!
