Kids Kicking Cancer
Kids Kicking Cancer

Kids Kicking Cancer is a global organization dedicated to lowering the pain of children through the teaching of martial arts as a therapy.  Children learn breath work, meditation and traditional karate movements that empower them to teach others and thus gain purpose within their lives.  Our young cancer patients teach other children with challenging illness and even adults how to “breathe in the light and blow out the darkness”.  This has extended into the creation of a Heroes Circle program dedicated to lowering the pain of all children regardless of disease.

Kids Kicking Cancer began in 1999 with ten children at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and is now empowering over 5,000 children in 48 hospitals in 5 countries.
