My first viral video finally reached 5 million views!👀 Grown ups and kids often ask me about how much money I earn from Youtube, and as I tell them it's nothing substantial, not enough to pay for rent or food. Maybe because "martial arts" is seen as controversial by the alogrithm, maybe because I donate what I earn from merchandise to chairty (by the way, if you want a Zen-Dragon tanktop, there's a button you can click on the Facebook page banner, the proceeds go to The Bully Project to help raise awareness against bullying). I guess I could create a Patreon and do more to monetize the brand I've built and the loyalty I've earned from followers around the world, but it's a headache and I don't need to increase stress in my life. When I speak with people who dream about becoming Youtubers, one of the things I tell them (besides "get started") is that if you're in it for the money, go find something else, the true currency is impact. If you have something you wanna share with the world, then you can have a true impact sharing your content on Youtube or any other social media platform, but as with most things you gotta consistently put in effort.
Back hand strike, this is not so commonly used however you may find yourself in a situation where it is applicable. Well, really you want to be able to give off your maximum power in all types of strikes, which is why we practice structure and state in all of our movements.

Il Marocco e quella volta in cui mi sono quasi uccisa per fare una foto "figa". Ps: io soffro di vertigini.
Morocco and that time I've almost killed myself to have a "cool" picture. Ps: I am afraid by heights.

"I am a giant
Stand up on my shoulders, tell me what you see 'Cause I am a giant
We'll be breaking boulders, underneath our feet
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am a giant"

The World Karate Federation has launched a digital campaign to showcase the unity of the sport and to request the inclusion of the discipline in the list of additional sports to be added to the programme of the Olympic Games Paris 2024.
The campaign encourages fans to support the Olympic essence of Karate by using the hashtag #Karate2024 and by spreading the message “KARATE: Olympic sport”. The WKF aims at capitalising the tremendous uproar that the proposal of excluding Karate of the Paris 2024 programme has caused among sports enthusiasts all over the world.
The main action in this campaign is called “TsukiForKarate2024”. With this project, the WKF is challenging Karate fans from all over the world to perform their best “Tsuki” punch in defence of the inclusion of Karate in Paris 2024.
Fans are encouraged to take pictures or videos of their best “Tsuki” finishing with the message “KARATE: Olympic sport”. These pictures and videos are to be posted by fans on their social media networks using the hashtags #Karate2024 and #TsukiForKarate2024 and tagging @Paris2024 and the WKF.
Fans can also send their videos and photos to the WKF to worldkaratefederation2016 @gmail.com and the WKF will post the best on WKF Social media channels. Sensational giveaways will also be distributed to the most original versions of the famous Karate punch. “Now it is the moment to show the world how strong we are. Now it is the time to demonstrate our unity and to take action against a decision which we deem unfair since we have been excluded even before having the opportunity to show the added value that we can bring to the Olympic Games,” said WKF President Antonio Espinós. “I encourage all national federations, all officials, referees, coaches, and all the millions of karatekas around the world to join us and post their ‘Tsuki’. It is the symbol of the greatness of our sport and it will be the most visual argument for our common goal of being in Paris 2024,” added the president of the World Karate Federation.
