    Resources for Beginners

    We all have to start somewhere, but "where" is often a challenge we all face. To help you, we have assembled a short list of starting points for you to review.

    At the top is our own Martial Talk Reference Library. Containing a large number of links to "Frequently Asked Questions" pages, as well as health and fitness resources, it is an excellent starting point for research.

    This is my favourite site.
    Shows all the basics in very well axplained flash animations.
    But most of it is for modern wushu an gymnastics.

    However, looks like they are also working on other martial arts realted stuff lately.
    Check it. This resource is AWESOME!!!!!! .... and actually free

    Was looking for some pics on handwrapping techniques and found this searching on here. Figured it would make sense to have in here since I suck at wrapping my hands yet and a lot of the people I know that are still pretty new are having the same problem.

    Little picture walkthrough of one technique for wrapping your hands

    Which links are broken, releana? Sometimes when a site shifts hosts or it's 'name' lapses the same thing can spring up elsewhere on the Net. A quick Google can often re-find the target of a link so it shouldn't be too hard to repair (if the sites still exist of course).

    I'm new to martial arts, but one of my friends recommended site www.which-martial-art.com

    I downloaded a free report from this site and its really good. As well as the excellent info on this forum its really helping me find a club.

    Hope it helps others too

    yes. Find TK Chiba's videos re Aikido and see how he trains kenshusei. Chiba sensei had his nidan in old judo from way back in the day. very useful training methods. that's a start.
