Our Impact

Black Girl Karate (BKG) was founded in August 2017 by community leaders Tia Hines and Kenyatta Moon-Sprinkle. They were concerned with young girls in Boston’s inner city being exposed to community violence, crime, drug use and promiscuity. This negative exposure has a direct effect on a child’s health physically and mentally leading to trauma, poor school performance, low self-esteem, and lacking in social skill. With that said, Black Girl Karate was created to provide that constructive outlet by giving the girls something to do and a place to go.


Our Programs


By partnering with the local courts, school districts, community centers, and health centers, and other non-profits, BKG will be able to successfully mentor young girls. Beginning in April 2018, we would like to offer free workshops and self-defense classes along with creative arts and academic enhancement activities. 



Self-Defense classes

Coming Soon...It is imperative that our girls learn how to protect themselves. Learning self-defense strengthens confidence, boost self-esteem and teaches confidence. 

Creative Arts workshops

Girls will be able to explore different creative outlets through mini introductory workshops provided free for the community.

Dear little...

"Dear Little" will be a traveling exhibit that showcases positivity and self esteem particularly within the context of representation for black children.  To learn more click here.
