Some Cool (and Free) Martial Arts Blog Themes
I was doing some web design work today which inevitably led me to peruse a few hundred wordpress and blogger themes. It was actually a treat because I like to see what kind of interesting ideas people are working on. As I browsed I was pleased to encounter a few ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ worthy themes.
Even though the ikigaiway theme isn’t going anywhere, I thought it might be fun to share some of my findings with you. These templates could be used for readers who are contemplating joining the blogging game or for current martial arts writers who want to spice things up on their own sites.
The First Batch is For WordPress Users:
Torii Gate Theme
This one features a prominent gate from the Shinto faith and a bonsai tree. Very warm and pleasant.
Anatomy Based Theme
This is a cool theme that would be great for kyusho or pressure point fighters.
Rising Sun Theme
Call me an optimist but this looks like a rising sun to me. Very Japanese in flavor.
Night and Day Theme
A cool dichotomy of night and day with shadowy figures and a Bonsai style tree in the middle.
Cherry Blossom Theme
This is a gentle theme represents a very important flower in Japanese culture.
Bonsai, Coin, and Fan Theme
My favorite of the bunch. An all-around intriguing take on Asian artistry.
Zen Stone Theme
A contemplative balance of stone stacking and flower arrangement.
Urban Kanji Theme
This theme blends a little classic kanji with modern urban design.
The Second Batch is For Blogger Users:
Scroll Parchment Theme
This has an old feel to it, quite like the Menkyo Kaiden of Koryu martial arts.
Japanese Fleur Theme
An entanglement of Japanese style plant life.
Brush Stroke Theme
A few bloggers I know use this one already, but that’s just because it’s very well created.
One For Joomla:
Martial Arts Nunchaku Theme
It contains some random guy, but it’s still pretty sharp with nice fonts.
