The Veteran’s Kick-A-Thon is supported by the non-profit American Tang Soo Do Association. Area ATA Schools will be hosting remote Kick-A-Thons at their respective studios or locations.

The ATA is a league of independent studios teaching Tang Soo Do, a Korean fighting system, with an emphasis on developing the mind, body, and spirit. To learn more, visit

Each student has been asked to collect donations for the number of kicks they will execute during the 90-minute event. Kick counters will count and record the number of kicks that each student completes. All proceeds will support Homes for the Brave. To participate in this charitable event, please call KAMAS Karate at (203) 261-3599.

Money raised from the Kick-A-Thon will compensate for canceled and rescheduled events and cover skyrocketing expenses for food, cleaning supplies, and PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Recently, in addition to our walk-in Veterans Service Center, programming has been expanded to now include mental health services, open to both residents and visiting Veterans. To date, we have served over 1,400 individuals.
