One local martial arts school helped raise more than three thousand dollars for St. Jude's Hospital.
Dragons Den Mixed Martial Arts in Grafton participates in the ‘Kick-a-thon" each year.
Sponsors donated money to watch the students show their stuff.
"Martial arts is just not for one self, it's helping others as well. Especially karate, the style and system that we do," said Eric Swick, Dragon Den Mixed Martial Arts Sensei. "We want to help out community and people that are in need. That's what we want to do with these kids, to help them and show that they can help others."
Dragons Den Mixed Martial Arts raised more than $3,000 for the hospital.
