This is our base level program that uses martial arts as a vehicle for positive intervention and character development. The majority of our program partners work with us through the Operation Impact model. We combine martial arts with mentoring and life skills training. Most of the youth in our programs have experienced trauma and/or disrupted relationships with adults and caregivers. Without intervention, they are at significant risk for decreased social and emotional well-being. Through Operation Impact, we empower young people to embody the tenets of martial arts.
