There are many different martial arts directories on the internet and everyone has a favorite.
In years past there were several major directories that feature martial arts sections. But the only major directory left on the internet which still has a martial arts sections is DMOZ (Open Directory)
Many Search Engines provide directory results, in addition to their own Search Results and most use the DMOZ directory listed above.
It is all in how they acquire there listings. In general, most directories do not use a spider program to index pages. Instead humans review each listing, indexing what they deem as an acceptable martial arts resource.
The best way to understand directories is to view them as gigantic bookmark lists. In the early days of the internet the human-compiled directory model was the way surfers found what they were looking for.
While most directories today are simply too slow and inefficient to keep up with the rapidly growing internet and the queries cannot provide the breadth of diversity and relevance of search results that the major Search Engines can.
Directories do still have some relevance, today. Especially if they focus on a niche (such as martial arts or a specific location).
The value of smaller directories with niche related martial arts sections is not the amount of listing they present, but instead the focus of these smaller niche and martial arts related directories.
