    black belt mag

    im a huge fan of blackbelt magazine. but i noticed lately, that over half of the articles are pertaining to MMA or jeet kune do. not that i dont like reading about them, but i miss some of the traditional arts that were included in the magazine. is there any other mags out there that are worth a read? i was considering inside-kungfu.

    BB Mag is a product of the times. When traditional Martial Arts were huge that is what they catered to in the magazine. Now, it is MMA.

    You are sheep. I've been in the magazine 3 times. It's basically just a big advertisement outlet. The editors have almost no true knowledge of martial arts.

    Classical Fighting Arts Magazine fills the gap with quality articles on traditional styles, mostly from historical and cultural points of view.

    You forgot the RBSD articles.

    At least they dumped "Sgt." Jim Wagner for Kelly McCann.

    I stopped reading once Matt Furey became a regular contributor.
