WHY A KICK A THON?
The US Open Taekwondo Hanmadang is one of the most professional and efficiently run tournaments in the United States. By adding a Kick A Thon to your schools activities you can raise money to offset tournament and travel expenses for those participating.
A Kick A Thon is a great way to encourage and teach our students the value of giving. Each school may appropriate a percentage of funds raised to Champions Education Fund. These funds will then be used to give back to the Martial Art community through educational prize money awarded to winners at the same tournament they will be competing in.
The activities involved in a Kick A Thon will teach students how to set goals, train for those goals and accomplish those goals. Engagement of friends, family and community for pledges teaches how to present an idea and ask for help. Finally, standing in front of classmates and articulating the process builds confidence in a safe environment and overcomes the fear of public speaking.
Kick A thon's are a challenging way to teach commitment, perseverance and follow through to our students in a fun way.
It's a Blast!
All of these benefits are achieved through a fun and dynamic kicking game.
