Finding New Opportunities to Support the Museum through this COVID Shutdown


Burbank, CA – It has been nearly a 9-month lockdown for the Martial Arts History Museum with no end yet in sight. The cancelation of our biggest fundraiser, Dragonfest, is taking its toll on the museum. However, all is not lost. With the help of some marvelous people, including Cynthia Rothrock, we have revamped our Youtube channel so that it can be monetized to raise some funds for the museum.

“We recently launched a Facebook fundraising campaign, and so far, we have reached a total, including in-person donations, to $12,500,” says Michael Matsuda, president of the museum. “Well, through everything we learned with Cynthia’s youtube channel, which has nearly 30,000 subscribers, we are re-launching the museum’s Youtube channel to help bring in funds.”

So far, the museum’s Youtube channel is just 200 plus subscribers shy of meeting the 1,000 subscriber requirement for monetization. But with your help, they will be able to reach that goal.

Subscription to the museum’s Youtube channel is free, plus you get some great info, some unique videos, and a way to keep in touch with the museum.

“So visit our site, hit that subscribe button, and we are on our way,” adds Matsuda.

To enhance the Youtube experience, the museum is making several of its Museum Biographies FREE for a limited time for everyone to enjoy. The biographies are currently sold on Amazon but showing them for a little while may peak some interest in purchasing them.

Here is the link to subscribe. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it will be an excellent new way to help the museum through this rough and terrible patch in history.

If you can’t find it, just go to Youtube and type in Martial Arts History Museum Channel.

 My thanks to everyone. – Michael Matsuda
