Character Building Martial Arts in Rochester

Welcome to the online home of Master Kim's Taekwondo Institute. With our Grandmaster's over 50 years of experience, we have been coaching people of all ages in the process of practicing the martial arts as a tool for learning the way of being a more complete and empowered human being.

You see, Master Kim's Taekwondo Institute, stands for something far beyond the kick, the punch, and the throw.

We consider ourselves an integral part of the village that help parents instill valuable character traits, beliefs, and habits in their children, such as: self-discipline, the ability to stay calm under pressure, the appreciation of teachers, parents and other mentors, and the value of proper diet, exercise and education in a happy and fulfilling life.

For thousands of adults and young adults, we have been, and continue to be a place to refuel, recharge, and remember the value of keeping one's body fit, to keep the mind focused and the spirit strong.

You are cordially invited to visit and or be a part of this school; that is if you are looking for something that is fun and extraordinarily engaging, interesting and life enhancing.

You can learn more about the personal development aspects of martial arts, through our Trial Program. We are the masters of making it easy to get started and are experts at making the learning fun and exciting. We are committed to being role models of honesty, customer service and good old fashioned value.
