"This Organization really hits home for me as a black belt and someone who has been affected by cancer. Not only the techniques that are taught, but the forum in which they are taught makes Kids Kicking Cancer an unbelievable asset for these kids."  ~ Josh Kaplan

Children suffering with Cancer and other illness are aided by Kids Kicking Cancer to help control stress and pain via coaching taught by Certified Black Belt Martial Artists. This protocol helps the kids experience power, peace and purpose by sharing their deep breathing methods with others. Kids Kicking Cancer was featured on Good Morning America, and when The Journal of The American Society of Hematology conducted a study, and reported that: "Martial Arts can provide a useful modality to decrease pain in childhood cancer. This can improve patient compliance with respect to medical and surgical management thus reducing disease morbidity and healthcare costs." It boosted their recognition.

Martial Arts are used to empower kids with life threatening disorders to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Classes are held at clinics and hospitals that teach traditional Karate moves along with methods of meditation, breathing, relaxation.  Kids Kicking Cancer was created fifteen years ago by a Black Belt Rabbi and Clinical Assistant Professor.

"Kids Kicking Cancer is an awesome organization, I'm at awe at how engaged these kids have become using their trained breathing techniques. It is an organization I fully support and am proud to be a part of." ~Michael P. Clemmon
