Kick Cancer Out of the World
Kick Cancer out of the world is a 6 month-long series of fundraisers created by Grand Master Choi who lost his father to cancer despite his family's attempts to provide the best possible care. Grand Master Choi's father is the one who started his journey and fueled his passion for martial arts from a young age when they would practice together in the front yard of their home in South Korea. His father was his greatest hero and his loss was devastating to the Choi family.
