ANNUAL KICK-A-THON TO BENEFIT UNC CHILDREN'S PEDIATRIC CENTER
We are proud of our students as they take on the challenge of our Annual Kick-A-Thon. After getting donations from family, friends and local businesses, the students then see how many kicks they can execute in a 10-minute period. The students with the most kicks receive special recognition from our Martial Arts Director, Master Jon.
A portion of the proceeds are then given to UNC Children's Pediatric Center. These donations help children right in some of the same neighborhoods where our classes are held. Children are treated at UNC regardless of their ability to pay for some extremely expensive procedures and/or medications. We want our students to be proud of their accomplishments, reach their goals and know their hard work is helping others.

He has been teaching these the special programs to elementary and middle schools, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts.
