SportMartialArts.com: A Little Idea That Grew
In 2000, SportMartialArts.com founder Emily Cooper realized that a great way for the parents of her martial arts students to be able to see what happened at tournaments was to broadcast it on a fancy thing called the Internet. She learned a little html coding and started posting photos and videos on a site called maslinc.com. About 50 people found the site after the first month. After the fifth month, the views had grown to thousands and SportMartialArts.com was born. The driving force behind the site has never been money, all of the crew have other “real” jobs that pay the bills. Everyone involved from the beginning is involved because he or she loves this sport and wants to see it grow.
Since 2000, there have been tremendous advancements in technology and huge changes to the site. The SportMartialArts.com crew has covered nearly every major sport karate event in the world and has traveled all over the world to do it. The site is now the largest site dedicated to sport karate tournament coverage and is the original and most innovative provider of sport karate information.
The site continues to grow and our coverage crew gets better each season. And, more importantly, we continue to have fun. We hope that is reflected in everything we do!
