2018 Kids Kicking Cancer


When good people get together to do good things – great things happen!

Our heartfelt THANKS is extended to everyone who contributed their time, energy, sweat, endless good humour, financial support and most of all their heart in helping participating DMA locations raised over $13,500 in support of KIDS KICKING CANCER CANADA! We could not be a success without you!

This brings our grand fundraising total, over the past 2 years, to over $30,000!

Our CONGRATULATIONS to Sensei Micheline B of DMA Westboro for being the lucky winner of our 2018 KIDS KICKING CANCER CANADA 50-50 Draw in the amount of $687!

The name BERNARDO KARATE is one familiar to all in the world of martial arts. DOUVRIS MARTIAL ARTS and BERNARDO KARATE share not only a strong commitment to excellence in martial arts but also a commitment to making a difference in our local communities. And so, we would also like to offer BERNARDO KARATE our CONGRATULATIONS on their success in raising $11,000 at their 1st KIDS KICKING CANCER CANADA fundraising event!

KIDS KICKING CANCER is a not-for-profit organization, whose mission is to ease the pain of very sick children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally through the power of martial arts. Specially trained Black Belt Martial Artists teach children the mind-body techniques of Martial Arts instruction, breath work and meditation to empower children to move beyond the pain and discomfort of disease. To learn more please visit www.kidskickingcancer.org.

KIDS KICKING CANCER has, over the years, received support on a program level from MICHAEL BERNARDO and RICHARD PLOWDEN. DOUVRIS MARTIAL ARTS is privileged to support this organization not only through our fundraising but we look forward to lending our support to an exciting Ottawa-based program currently under development.

If you are a DMA Black Belt student (aged 18+) and would like more information on this exciting program and how you can participate, please contact us directly at info@douvris.com or call 613.234.5000.
