The new and FREE Black Belt Digital Dojo app allows you to have your very own iTunes-style martial arts library right on your Mac or PC desktop. Currently, this app (marked on your desktop by a fun “black belt” icon) contains 10 titles — ranging from Kelly McCann DVDs and a William Cheung title to samurai DVDs and MMA workout DVDs. More are planned for future upload, but we thought it would be a good idea to provide a user tutorial while everyone gets familiar with this new feature — so click below to check out this guided tour through the Black Belt Digital Dojo!

Take a Video Tour of the NEW and FREE App That Allows You to Download Kelly McCann DVDs, William Cheung DVDs, Samurai DVDs and MMA Workout DVDs From the Black Belt Library!
If your living room or home dojo has stacks of martial arts DVDs cluttering up the shelves, the Black Belt Digital Dojo is the app for you.

Once you access the Black Belt Digital Dojo page — which you can find by typing in the URL http://www.blackbeltmag.com/digital-dojo or through the horizontal navigation bar under Store — you’ll have the option of downloading the app itself for Mac or for PC. Scrolling down the page past the two big blue buttons, you’ll see an array of blurbs describing what the Digital Dojo is, how to use it, and what the computer requirements are for its proper installation and functionality. (We recommend that you read through this text, particularly the section on system requirements.)
