    Hello and welcome to Black Belt Forums - a discussion forum that was created specifically for martial artists :)

    Around a week ago we asked Facebook fans of our Martial Arts Videos website for suggestions on what they would like to see in this forum. The response was fantastic. We had lots of suggestions for specific rooms and have tried to accommodate everyone.

    Discussion Rooms

    Martial arts styles have been divided into different groups. Styles that are primarily known for striking have been placed in the striking martial arts section. Likewise, arts that are known as grappling arts have been placed in the grappling martial arts section. Arts that use a variety of techniques from other arts have been placed in the hybrid martial arts section.

    There are many ways in which we could have arranged all the discussion rooms though we feel this is the more practical :)
    It isn't advisable to start a forum with so many discussion rooms. It's much better to start with just a few rooms and expand when necessary. We are aware that a forum such as this needs things to be organised and we also wanted to accommodate everyones suggestions.
    If we find after a few weeks that no one is really posting in certain discussion rooms, we will remove the rooms until there is a demand for it. Also, if there is a strong demand for more rooms to be added, we will add them as and when needed.
