A Fantastic Organization

Today I discovered an organization that is really unique and special.

Breaking Barriers Martial Arts, in Sanford Florida, trains people with disabilities- from down syndrome to autism to hyperactivity. It was started by Katarina Eckstsein-Schoemann, who has two brothers who were diagnosed with Autism at a young age. She saw the need for a type of physical activity for them, and other special needs kids. So, she started Breaking Barriers to give them just what she saw that they needed.

Breaking Barriers has been around since 2011, and are doing great stuff with and for these disabled kids. I only wish that it was closer to where I live, as I know several kids with disabilities who would be blessed by this organization.

You can see some great pictures and learn more about the organization here.
