How You Can Help

As with all non-profits, we rely heavily on the support of others to provide these worthwhile programs to youth who greatly benefit from them.

  • Private Donations

    Any donation, big or small, can help us make a positive impact on a child or teen through our programs. And because we are a 501c3 non-profit, all donations are tax-deductible.

  • Corporate Donations

    Self-discipline and leadership skills, which are both achieved through the study of martial arts, are highly valued in the workplace. Your donation can help our youth develop these skills. 

    Sponsor a scholarship to allow a student to enroll in our program, or send an anonymous donation today.

  • Volunteer

    Whether it’s helping us set up games and clean up after snacks at day camp, or helping us with our fundraising efforts, everyone can find a place to volunteer within Kaizen Way.

  • Seminars

    You may choose to hold a seminar at your location or schedule one at our North Charleston location. The proceeds from these seminars fund our non-profit programs.


    Self-Defense: Our self-defense seminars are conducted by certified black belt instructors with decades of teaching experience. You will learn practical techniques that can be applied to real-life situations and increase your confidence in your ability to diffuse confrontations. We will also address strategies for reducing the risks of becoming a target of an attacker.

    Tai Chi: Our Tai Chi seminars rotate between three different areas. Qi Gong is calming and meditative; the Eight Postures Yang Style Form hone the mind and body; Push Hands teaches self defense and improves soft skills with an emphasis on conflict resolution.
