One of the challenges I have noticed is finding quality martial arts news feeds that are not related to the field of mixed martial arts contests. These are actually a good deal more difficult to find than one might believe. That is why I wanted to ask where everyone else gets his or her martial arts news.
Self-published articles are often criticized in various fields, but they are essential in this one. Many small schools offer press released about their events, programs and tournaments. These can be quite valuable, and I do not believe that they should be overlooked as a constant source of information.
That being said, the only real nice mainstream source I am aware of is three features in the Japan Times. That is an English-language newspaper from Japan that carries Sumo wrestling and Judo stories on their sports page. I read both on the Japan Times website.http://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/sumo/
Interestingly enough, they also carry a Sumo wrestling commentary column called Sumo Scribblings that I also enjoy.http://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/column/sumo-scribblings/
I look forward to hearing what other news sources people here like to use to get their martial arts information. I find it rather sad that I have been able to find so few examples of journalists interested in the field. I am quite grateful that the Japan Times provides this service.
