The Heroes Circle is a growing healing and wellness initiative inspired by the children of Kids Kicking Cancer. Welcome to our Friends of the Heroes Circle Newsletter. 

As a growing number of children are becoming powerful teachers of martial arts meditation, we are seeing an expanded need to reach more and more boys and girls who are struggling with stress and trauma. Providing these children with the keys to their own power is simple, sustainable and cost effective.

This newsletter allows you to become an active ambassador, promoting the light of these children to so many others who can gain from their message. Read it, share it and live it. Everyone can defeat the dangerous chemicals of pain, anxiety and anger. Send us a message, thanking the children. It makes a big difference in their lives!

Thanks for your generosity and love.

Power Peace Purpose!

Kids Kicking Cancer Hosts 2021 Belting Ceremony for Young Martial Artists 

Thank you to all those who helped make our 2021 drive-through event a success! With a little social distancing, we were still able to gather and celebrate our powerful Martial Artists with our 2021 Belting Ceremony.

Follow the link below for a full recap of this special day, an exciting video highlight reel, and photos that will light up your day!
Markus was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Beta Thalassemia at birth and was connected to the Heroes Circle during his treatments. Learn more about Markus's journey and why he is now a powerful martial artist.
Our Martial Arts Therapists (MATs) are highly trained martial artists who have successfully matriculated through the Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) Martial Arts Therapy course curriculum and then completed a rigorous apprenticeship. Our KKC certified MATs are located worldwide, operating within eight states nationally and seven countries globally. Our MAT CHAT Q&A series spotlights our MATs and their commitment to empowering our Heroes Circle community.

Q: What do you love most about Kids Kicking Cancer’s mission?

"Discovering and deploying methods to ease the pain and suffering in others."
“We use the breathing technique all the time for pain. Greta is always having different pokes and prods, and she gets upset easy. And so we use Kids Kicking Cancer’s Methodology in our day to day.”

When we get stressed, our body goes into “Fight or Flight” mode. This level of stress is not good on the body, mind, or spirit, especially when bearing it regularly. By controlling our breathing, though, we can help control our natural stress response.

The #BreathBrake is a Martial Arts Meditation technique that we use in the Heroes Circle to help us fight pain, fear, stress, anger, sadness, frustration – what we call “The Darkness”. We use “The Light”, or the good stuff – love, hope, joy – to help us. In using this technique, we allow our body and our mind to relax.

Join Greta and her wonderful family in Breathing in the Light and Blowing out the Darkness!
