We are excited to announce that 22 of our instructors, directors, and students tested for and received their new Kickstart Kids Black Belts at Lone Wolf Ranch on on April 28 and 29, 2017. Fourteen of the instructors reached the highest level of the current Kickstart Kids rank, the 5th Degree Master Black Belt.
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, Kickstart Kids held the final tournament of the 2016-2017 school year’s competitive season, the 2017 “Fire Dragon” State Championship. The event was held at Wheeler Fieldhouse in Sugarland and featured over 600 student competitors.
On Friday, March 24th, more than 550 guests attended our annual “Heroes Among Us” Gala at the Hilton Americas-Houston. Thanks to the outpouring of support from our many donors, we were able to raise almost $900,000 to help support the growth of the Kickstart Kids program.
