patrons

Become a patron of the arts... the martial arts!!

For as little as a $1, you can help Black Belt Wiki to grow. Your donation will allow us to add new instructional material (i.e. written kata & form instructions and kicking tutorials). If you have benefited from our instructional martial arts material (i.e. we helped you to pass a belt test), we hope you will consider throwing a few coins into this digital "tip jar" via the sponsorship tiers.

To sponsor Black Belt Wiki, please click on the red "Become A Patron" button or the sponsorship tiers on this page.

Benefits

  • 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.

We have removed most of the advertising on the wiki.

To make our site even more friendly & useful to our visitors, we removed most of the advertising from Black Belt Wiki (previously on the top, right side and bottom of the wiki). Who wants to see crappy diet ads & underwear ads when they are searching for martial arts training material? FYI - We can't remove the ads from some of the YouTube videos because these ads were added by the video creators (not us). We have also left the Amazon affiliate links (on the right sidebar) because we think our visitors find them useful (i.e. to find our favorite martial arts books).

Unfortunately, creating content costs money in terms of web hosting, software, etc. The removal of the ads means much less revenue and thus less money to expand Black Belt Wiki. Hopefully, we can offset this loss through the kindness of our visitors and small $1+ monthly donations.

Who will be our first 10 sponsors?? We will publicly thank you on the Wiki.

The first 10 "original" patrons and all $5 patrons will be listed on the wiki. We want to publicly thank you for your generosity! However, for your privacy, we will list only your first name and the first initial of your last name (i.e. Sally W.).

This is an experiment (started on 10/15/18) as we hope that visitor donations can offset the removal of most of the ads on the wiki. To follow how this experiment is going, you can read our Patron Blog Posts. However, if we can't gain 20 patrons by Christmas, we will have to rethink this "no ad" experiment.

Thank you so much for becoming a patron of Black Belt Wiki!!!!

Goals
2 of 20 patrons
We would like to get 20 patrons by Christmas. We hope you help us to reach this goal.

We will post the names of the first 10 patrons (whether they are $1 or $5 patrons). We want to publicly thank those who helped get our patron system off the ground.

Unfortunately, if we can’t gain at least 20 patrons by Christmas, banner ads will have to be added back to the wiki. Help keep the wiki relatively ad free!
