Community Groups

The Heroes Circle is an exciting program of martial arts activities, breathing and relaxation techniques. Everything we do is strictly non-contact so children with immune deficiencies or physical fragility can join in the fun.  


Our Community Groups welcome children aged 7-18 dealing with chronic or serious health challenges along with their siblings, along with children dealing with a parent's illness. 


Our program helps these children develop their self-control and self-confidence and cultivates their inner strength to help them cope with the challenges of illness and of life.


Heroes Circle groups are led by martial arts instructors certified in Therapeutic Martial Arts for children, whether those children are hospitalized or in the community.
