The Judo Information Site grows bigger every day and now includes over 375 individual web pages (more than 3600 printed pages), and over 1000 images, animations, and videos related to Judo. Millions of visitors have used this site since 1995. The Judo Information Site now serves 200,000 visitors per month, and the Judo Forum topics are viewed 130,000 times each month.
This much visitor traffic is expensive, and without some financial support this site could go out like a light bulb. We're now in the stage of development where we are in need of additional funds. Responding to this need, we are asking for your support to keep Judo online in an independent and non-commercial format.
Financial support is needed for high-speed bandwidth and our dedicated server, software, utilities, office supplies, and other costs. With visitor support the site can continue to grow with more dynamic content, advanced web features, contributing writers for more news, interviews and articles, and online tournament and technique videos.
Judo classes compete for students with many other martial arts and sports that are better funded. Likewise, the Judo Information Site competes with well-funded martial arts and sports web sites for public attention. It has consistently ranked as the number one Judo site in the world, and it has also been ranked as one of the top martial arts and sports sites in the world, but to maintain that status we need additional support from users.
Your contribution will keep the information flowing, and the high-profile Judo Information Site online. Giving back to society is one of the tenets of Judo, and there is no more important or effective way to promote Judo around the world than by contributing to the original Judo Information Site. You decide how much you can give -- even small amounts help.
Judo is a wonderful and profound activity that has changed many lives. Your participation in Judo is vital, as much online as on the mats. Bringing the benefits of Judo to the public's attention, while providing a valuable reference for students and teachers, is what the Judo Information Site is all about. Thank you for your interest in helping to promote Judo around the world.
