Why Start Martial Arts?
- 6 / 22 / 1984 The Karate KidThe Karate Kid, starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi, debuts in theaters and becomes a box-office bonanza and a critically-acclaimes cinematic gem. The movie remains in theaters until Oct. 21st and makes $90.8 million in the U.S. and Canadian. Morita is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. It spawns an unprecedented wave of children to take up the study of martial arts, a trend that continues to this day. By many expert estimates, more than 50% of the active martial arts students today are pre-teens.

The bodies were found in a ditch in the desert about 100 kilometers west of Ramadi in Anbar province, one of Iraqs most violent areas and where al-Qaeda and Sunni Arab insurgents were battling U.S. and Iraqi forced.

We love the martial arts. We love it like we love our children, our freedom, our history. We love the martial arts as much as we love to train, as much as we love the rush of the right technique at exactly the right moment, as much as we love the thrill of a good contest.
At MartialInfo.com we are committed to the entire "village" that is the world of martial arts. We are here for the fighter, the fan, the teacher, the coach, the parents, the traditionalist, the eclectic practitioner, the expert, the novice, the filmmaker, the actor, the celebrity, and the unknown master. We celebrate the diversity of our histories, of our people, of everything that is the best - of - the-best of what we do - and what we are capable of.
We believe that there is something to the study of the martial arts, something beyond the technique, beyond what takes place in the ring - something magical and interesting and important. We respect all methods, and all of the men and women on their own paths, from all the countries, from all the schools, passing down what it is they have learned or are in the process of learning.
We really love the martial arts and this site is dedicated to martial artists everywhere. We think that the martial arts world makes THE WORLD a better, safer, and more interesting place to be. We hope that we are a part of the village that helps you be a better martial artist - and as a result, a better human being."
