About Us

Kids Kicking Cancer, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, began in 1999 with ten children at Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Kids Kicking Cancer is a global organization dedicated to lowering the pain of children through the teaching of martial arts as a therapy.  Our young cancer patients teach other children with challenging illness and even adults how to breathe in the light and blow out the darkness.

Kids Kicking Cancer is an evidence-based innovative program that merges modern integrative medicine with traditional martial arts. Specially trained black belt martial artists teach breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques, in addition to traditional martial arts moves, to help empower children and provide them with a sense of power, peace, and purpose.

Our Heroes Circle program allows very sick children with all types of illnesses to be in the center of a circle that inspires and teaches the world how to “breathe in the light and blow out the darkness.”  The Heroes Circle is now functioning in over 90 facilities in 7 countries. Our goal is to lower the pain of one million children by 2025.
