WHO ARE WE?
Special Kicks International Martial Arts is a privately funded non-profit organization focused on providing martial arts scholarships for individuals with 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 with special abilities. 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. 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 to provide a top-notch special abilities program. In every special abilities 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.
