Hi, I'm Lawrence Kenshin, creator of striking breakdowns on YouTube. I've always loved martial arts and wanted the world to see it through my lens–there's so much more to it than just violence.

The spirit of martial arts is beautiful, and in it exists a technical art that most of the audience don't appreciate. The reason I create content is so that the world can see the same beauty in this warrior art form. 

In the 5 years that I've been making content, it has become one of the biggest channels all of combat sports. I'm grateful, and it's been rewarding in so many ways. Through countless messages from athletes, coaches, and practitioners, I know that my work has brought value to the striking arts. The amount of support from greatest of all time champions, coaches, and ambassadors is a tremendous testament to my work.

Now, this might make some people think I'm rolling around in YouTube ad revenue, but if that is what I relied on, then I would be starving. In fact, the Patreon pledge $ amount that you see on the left hand screen right now (150$) is not far off my 2018 January ad revenue. 

Not bad after 151 videos eh? The majority of my YouTube earnings career are months similar to this ones. There was a period where YouTube algorithms favored creators but not so much anymore, which is why so many creators turn to Patreon for support. 

If you've been following me for a long time, I assume you've noticed that I've slowed down in production. In 2017, I made 9 videos. In the first half of 2018, I made 1 video. This was in part due to having dehabilitating injuries that required me to step away from the computer. Once I sorted that out, I wanted to work on projects behind the scenes, some of which have bettered the lives of the very heroes I feature. 

I don't create analysis and feature athletes for money. But... getting paid for my efforts on YouTube would be quite nice and it will help make it more sustainable. Since late June, I've published 6 videos, some of which are my highest quality content yet. If you have found my work valuable, and you would like to help make my YouTube creations consistent and more frequent, this is how you can help. 

When my YouTube studies itself are sustainable, I'll be pulled into other directions much less. The more support I receive, the greater my content output can be. 

But that's not all, check out some of the perks you will receive in the pledge tiers. If we hit the pledge goal, I'll regularly invite elite athletes and coaches to answer questions.
