WHO ARE WE?
Special Kicks International Martial Arts is a privately funded non-profit organization focused on providing martial arts scholarships for individuals with and without intellectual or physical disabilities, including, but not limited to, Down Syndrome, Autism, Asperger, IDD, ADHD, and ADD.
Here at SKIMA, we are driven by a single goal: making the world a better place for all individuals. We recognize that families who have members with disabilities deal with more barriers to extra-curricular activities than the average person. Whether it be insufficient instruction and attention, lack of a special abilities program, or financial issues - we want to break them down. We don't believe anything should prevent anyone from taking part in a sport as life changing as martial arts. We also understand that times can be tough, our goal is to also be of assistance to families who wish to put their children in martial arts programs but do not have the means to do so. By providing financial assistance to these families, their children or family members can join in on the fun.
We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. SKIMA partners with martial arts schools all around the nation. In every class, you will find talented instructors who genuinely care for each student. Each student goes at their own pace, and they will always get the attention they deserve.
