Kick4Change was started in 2001 by the Okinawa-Te Organization. The program’s purpose is to provide financial assistance and allow access to training for all local youth.
The Kick4Change mission is to provide a safe and positive environment that teaches qualities such as good work ethic, respect and compassion. Teachers encourage students to use these qualities in their everyday lives and become productive adults in the real world.
The goals for Kick4Change are to teach youth martial arts to promote self-esteem and self-discipline. The students also give back and serve the community. They volunteer their time and energy to local shelters and the local community garden. Sensei Richard Triplett believes that this program will grow in the coming years and help to give back to the Antelope Valley and surrounding communities.
This program is made possible by fundraising and volunteer work. We need you, your family and your friends’ help with helping Okinawa-Te Kick4Change program to continue to be available as a resource to youth in our community.
