Kickstart Kids

Within every child is the power to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. Following in the vision of our founder Chuck Norris, we believe that power can be unlocked through the martial arts. Kickstart Kids teaches character through karate to empower youth with core values, such as discipline and respect, to achieve their greatest potential. Black belt instructors deliver daily in-school lessons that create a positive impact on students, their families, schools, and communities. Since its inception in 1992, more than 100,000 youth have benefited from this one-of-a-kind, life-changing program.
