  2. Peaks of Life is a short Documentary about UK rider and downhill racer Tom Wheeler. The documentary illustrates Tom's lengthy recovery and rehabilitation process after loosing the use of his right arm whilst racing in Rheola, Wales back in 2011.

    Despite paralysing his right arm, Tom's determination and dedication means he's able to do the things he loves most including riding his mountain bike again. A touching story that some may consider a tragedy at first, but with such a great out look of life Tom isn't letting his paralysed arm slow him down.

  3. In 1999 Hussain Sadiqi fled the remote mountains of central Afghanistan as the Taliban stepped up their violent persecution of the Hazara people. This was to be the start of Hussain’s epic 20,000km journey to Australia. 10 years later, this self confessed ‘nomad’ is about to give up his new life in his new country to pursue a life long dream - a dream that was born over 20 years ago, when a young Hussain first saw a torn and battered picture of his life long hero, Bruce Lee.

  4. by Emon Hassan for Narratively narrative.ly/watching-over-new-york/harlem-grandmaster-and-his-ten-thousand-karate-kids/

    Every Tuesday and Thursday at Hansborough Recreation Center in Harlem, Grandmaster Sam McGee, sixty-five, gives free Goju Karate lessons to children and adults from its community. As a young Vietnam War veteran in the late 1960s, McGee was a disciple of "Major" Leon Wallace, who introduced Goju karate to Harlem, offering free lessons to McGee and other youngsters.

    Founded in 1973 by McGee, Harlem Goju Association has trained over 10,000 children and adults of the Harlem community, some of whom have started their own schools, expanding the teachings and philosophy of Wallace in New York and beyond.
