MONDOSELECTION2016@NEO: psychedelic trance party in Amemura

On the first day of this year, I went to Club Neo for the first time. I had never been to any club before. I was dancing there 
with Goa trance music for three hours. DJ Fullmoon Mondo is great! 
After that, I had my favorite, Tacorice and Mexican beer Tecate 
at Tacorice Comedor in Amerika Mura, Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

Saifa (December 5, 2015)
It is quite important that the Double Punch of Saifa should be done by Hiraken (= lion paw fists, leopard fists), not Seiken or ordinary fists.

Okinawa karate for peace

Excellent video. Although this video is for sightseeing promotion of Okinawa, but you may understand why most of Okinawan karate masters do not practice free sparring and the ultimate goal of karate practice is for peace, not fighting.
