A New Approach To Healing & Wholeness for Military Vets

For many of our military vets, sitting in a traditional therapists office can hold little appeal, despite the clear need for treatment. Project Hammer provides an alternative method for healing our wounded warriors – Shaolin Kung Fu, which has many of the same support structures found in the military.


Training in Kung Fu provides a familiar daily routine. 


Find the strength to train hard and master yourself.


Accountability and respect are built into the structure.


Never walk alone with our supportive group.

Our Mission

The purpose of Project Hammer is to provide funding for those Military Vets that will benefit from the healing power of Kung fu. It’s all about making this form of therapy available to as many Vets as possible, regardless of their financial situation.

How You Can Help

Project Hammer is a non-profit organization with the sole mission to help provide Military Vets access to the healing arts of Shaolin Kung Fu. We rely on the generous support of our community to help raise the funds that allow us to help more Vets.

We appreciate any and all support you can provide.

“Project Hammer is named after my battle buddy, Sean Hanrahan, who we called ‘the Hammer.’

He was a well rounded guy that looked to have everything together , but once he got home and lost the military support structure, he fell into depression and ended up taking his own life.

As his battle buddy, I felt I could have done more. I started Project Hammer as a way to help prevent this from happening again.”
