Athlete Profiles will allow sport karate fans to learn about the athletes and choose their favorite competitors.

BlackBeltMag.com is proud to introduce the world's premier resource for learning about sport karate athletes. This catalog of competitors features the world's best point fighting, forms, and weapons athletes from several major leagues. The thirty-three individuals currently featured represent fifteen professional teams and five countries. This list will continue to evolve and will be updated to include additional athletes and their accomplishments. You can view the profiles here, or keep reading to learn more about the selection process.


For the initial set of profiles, only athletes who will be competing in the adult (18+) division for the 2021 competition season were considered for inclusion. However, prominent junior competitors will be featured in the future. There are also multiple prominent adult competitors who are yet to be included because they may have not submitted their information upon request or may already be selected for inclusion in the next update. If you are a competitor in a major sport karate league and wish to be included in the Black Belt Magazine Athlete Profiles, please contact me (Jackson Rudolph) directly at JRudolph@centurymartialarts.com. These profiles are a key step forward to increase the professionalism of the beautiful sport that is competitive martial arts, and Black Belt Magazine looks forward to providing more resources for sport karate athletes, coaches, promoters, families, and fans in the future.

Warning: An analogy is about to be used for effect. But not merely for effect. It is chosen intentionally because of the life-threatening nature of the subject matter. The analogy and thesis being that weight-cutting in MMA is proving to be similar to what happens in situations of domestic abuse. As stated, this is not used or mentioned lightly and it is in the frontal lobe that many families (including the writer's) have had the loss and bruises, so that here it is very much taken extreme seriously. The comparison is used completely wittingly with the full respect to those who suffer. It is actually that respect and the constant sight of suffering that instigated this communication. When we say of both situations that someone might literally die unless something changes, it is not hyperbole and further it is tough to find more pointed language to give it the seriousness it deserves.
