Martial Arts blogs

Originally, this list was gonna be for blogs focused on martial arts, but there are more out there that are indeed martial artists, so… some of these blogs are focused on martial arts, and some aren’t, but they do post martial arts related stuff among their blogging, and if I’m not mistaken, everyone on this list is a practitioner, so we are all still part of the community, and we all have more chances to meet and interact with other martial artists, regardless of their blogging style, so it’s really up to you guys to decide which to follow, but definitely check them all out.

I left some out, since they haven’t been active for months, and hey, if I follow you and forgot to put you on this list, send me a message, and I’ll add you immediately!

Also, if you come across this post and you blog about martial arts, and you want to be added to the list, send me a message!

Notes:

  • Gonkaku (or Gong Kakutogi) and Kamipro are combat sport magazines.
  • Ginnan BOYZ looks to be a pretty wild indie group…
  • C-ute is one of the groups comprising Hello! Project. Momoiro Clover Z, as another 5 member girl idol group, is something like a rival to it, I suspect.
  • Enatsu Yutaka is one of best Japanese pitchers of all-time who holds 2 strikeout records (wiki)
  • Sanada Yukimura (aka Sanada Nobushige) is one of the greatest generals of the Sengoku period (wiki)
  • Kurosawa Akira is one of the greatest filmmakers, pretty much everybody at least heard of him, I think (just in case: wiki)

Well, and another thing concerning Daiya no A that everybody probably knows by now: Sawamura Eijun is named after Sawamura Eiji, the best pitcher of the old days, and the award for the top starting pitcher is named in his honor (The Sawamura Award)
