ONE CHAMPIONSHIP 

ONE Superstars Campaign To End Bullying In Schools

Some of the best martial artists in ONE Championship stood together in the continuous campaign against bullying, while prompting budding practitioners to uphold the true values of their respective disciplines.

Bullying has yet again become a hot topic in the Philippines when a viral video on social media, involving a martial arts practitioner made the headlines a few months ago.

In the clip, the junior high school taekwondo athlete was seen humiliating and physically abusing his schoolmate in a lavatory of an established university in the Philippines.  

The incident left a sour taste in the populace, with some thinking that martial arts have become a tool for people to exploit others - but it’s a thought that ONE talents wish to take away.

"Bullying is not in the vocabulary of a real martial arts practitioner. Martial artists have self-control, discipline, respect and humility. Being abusive is not a martial artist's attitude," explained Former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio.

"This world needs superheroes, not villains. We are totally against bullying. One wrongful martial artist doesn't define the whole community of martial arts. That is not the case at all."

ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang believes that coaches should instill the core values of the discipline to the aspiring practitioner from the very start.

While not everyone will have access to martial arts training, ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera suggests taking a different approach.

Admitting that he was bullied in the past, the beloved Filipino-American superstar came up with a video on social media, prompting bullied kids to speak-up, and others to further educate people about the ill-effects of bullying.

“I was bullied when I was growing up, even though I was the bigger kid. Bullying is a very serious problem, both for the bullies and the bullied. They both need our help,” said Vera in his Instagram account. “Together we can all make a difference.”

Iniong emerged victorious in a spirited battle between two outstanding atomweights, claiming a well-deserved split decision victory over the erstwhile-unbeaten Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan at ONE: CLASH OF LEGENDS in Bangkok, Thailand last Saturday, 16 February.

Finally getting her confidence back, Iniong vowed to make up for lost time as she continues to set her sights on one day becoming the first Filipina World Champion in the sport of mixed martial arts.

"It was a big relief. I struggled in my last bouts, so it feels really good to get back on track,” she stated.

“Hopefully, this is a start of another run for me at the belt. “

While we are well into the second month of the New Year, it’s still not too late to practice #SelfLove2019, especially when inclusive of this rapidly rising ideology is the empowering act of only keeping what makes you happy, or, as Netflix’ Marie Kondo would say, what “sparks joy”.

These of course, undoubtedly would include our personal photographs, which is quite unsurprising. Photographs, for the longest time, have been known to hold a lot of sentimentality, and with the evolution of camera-centric smartphones in recent years, it’s been apparent that your albums have been flooded with all kinds of photos, and deleting has been difficult.

So, what do you delete? Delete the multiples, the blurred, and the ones that do not spark joy. Keep the ones of your loved ones, cute stuff, adventures, and the ones that evoke strong emotions.


2019 is definitely the year to push forth loving yourself and be unapologetic about it. Take the year by its reins and show the universe you are deserving of all the happiness that is rightfully yours. Of course, catching sparks of joy needs the right tool, and one that doesn’t have to break the wallet.

The ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite is definitely right for that job. With a goal to help you catch your precious moments in vivid and stunning quality just for the affordable price of PHP 6,995.00, this special ZenFone is designed with a 13MP selfie camera, great for taking your selfies as well as wefies. It also comes with the softlight LED flash, allowing for amazingly fresh front camera photos. Moreover, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite’s SelfieMaster™ app can step up your selfie and wefie glam game whenever you wish to. Whether through photos, videos, or even slideshows, this beautification app allows you to look your best no matter what. The rear camera of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite also comes with 13MP. This allows you to capture all kinds of moments that spark joy in stunning detail. And to top it off, the special variant of the ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite now comes with a 3GB RAM and 32GB of ROM for the highest performance experience a “lite” ZenFone can offer.
