      ABOUT US

      Arizona's Children Coalition was founded by friends who recognized the role that Martial Arts played in their lives. Through their research they found that sports inherently provide many tools to heal the scars that childhood trauma can leave behind. Seeing a need in the community to connect sports with distressed and at risk youth; Arizona's Children Coalition was established.
