Did you ever wonder where a martial art originated or what made it stand out from others? For example: "What is Isshinryu Karate and what is it known for?". Maybe you are a martial artist or want to be one but really do not have the time to read volumes on each of them. This application was created with those types of questions in mind.
The Martial Arts application delivers martial arts interesting facts to you quickly and at your fingertips. The picker wheel contains martial arts from all over the world including different variations.
Spin the wheel and pick the martial art you would like to know about. Then click the "Select Style" button to find out more about that martial art!
It's that easy. It's fast and it's fun!
Best of all - Updates are FREE!

Martial Arts receives a yellow belt!!
The breadth of styles referenced was reasonable for an initial release. The depth of info on each style was inconsistent. Some actually named the founder, and style characteristics, however, this practice was inconsistent.
It would be nice to see the following data for each style in future releases:
Name of founder(s)
Country of origin
pronuciation of unusal styles
translation of style names
characteristics of the the style
Well known/Famous practictioners
There are probably other items as well...
I look forward to seeing future updates.
Hope this helps
To be honest, the app is very useful. It gives basic information on the different martial arts, and is relativly easy to follow. However, I believe that some more detail could be added besides mere paragraphs. Other than that, this is a great app that I recommend to other martial arts fans.
It has a good core of information. One feature I would recommend is a submission where you could suggest styles for inclusion. A bit more info would be nice, but more styles would be great too...I practice Kyukido and I have yet to see it on the list even though it was founded in 1967.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
