Who we are
The Heroes Circle is a global healing and wellness initiative inspired by the children of Kids Kicking Cancer.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers evidence-based martial arts therapy to kids. Our focus is on pain and stress management for pediatric patients, as well as creating resilience and support for otherwise healthy children.
Learning To Overcome
Backed by research, our non-contact martial arts therapeutic program gives kids the tools to self-regulate when they encounter stress or are experiencing a pain crisis. The program teaches meditative breathing, mindfulness and movement, engaging children’s imaginations while teaching them how to work through overwhelming emotions like pain, fear and anger.
Why one-million kids?
Heroes Circle therapy is safer and more cost effective than just relying on pharmaceuticals. Our work improves compliance, which allows children to be a part of their healing. When we empower children, we lower their stress levels and the impact of childhood trauma.
The Heroes Circle involves the entire family, strengthening children, as well as adults. Our ability to reach more children becomes exponential as we continue to train clinicians in the United States and around the globe.
Join our mission to improve the lives of children globally.
At the Heroes Circle, our work focuses around three strategic areas:
Our evidence-based techniques for dealing with pain and stress are delivered in person and virtually throughout hospitals, medical facilities, outpatient centers, homes and schools across the United States and globally.
