This is without a doubt the absolute best program I have seen that not only focuses on children but the entire family. In our community there is a lot of drug addiction and all the heart breaking troubles that follow addiction. This ministry gives hope to families that suffer from these troubles as well as up lifts the family dynamic. There is a love for all sports in this world but speaking as a father there is no other program like this one. With all other sports you can only get as close to your children as the side line. With this sport you are able to not only watch your children train but you are able to train side by side. You can coach and train your children all the way through state and national competition. I was able to coach and train with my sons to national championship. In all of this there is a uniqueness that is here in this ministry. Not only does it give families hope. I have seen a positive impact in children. Confidence return after being bullied. To have a place that they belong and know they are loved. A place that allows them to be who they are. This ministry is not just teaching kicking and punching. It teaches love, not love as in passing but an eternal love through Jesus Christ. Kicks for Jesus is a proactive ministry making a positive impact.

I absolutely LOVE Kicks for Jesus! From their volunteer ministers, the crazy / wonderful people you get to work with, the skills that they teach, and simply being able to fellowship like they do with one another- its an incredible place.

I wanted a place where I could train and be trained up in the ways of the Lord, and Kicks for Jesus is just what I needed. Its not a rare occasion to talk about keeping each other on the right path, even if that means 'kicking' them back. LOL

I highly recommend this place to anyone who desires a good relationship with God, martial arts training, and a genuinely awesome time!

God Bless those that run Kicks for Jesus!

Kicks for Jesus is a great place that changes lives. This organization not only does a great job teaching martial arts, it teaches people how to be disciplined and have respect for others and themselves. Most importantly, it introduces them to the MASTER of all things, who can give them a new heart and make them a new creation. This is an organization that is changing the world one student at a time. I am glad to call them my family.
