Where Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Leadership Skills are Developed


Martial Arts for Kids

Our exciting martial arts program for kids can develop your child’s focus, self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall sense of purpose the way NO OTHER sport, hobby, “activity,” or program can.

HUNDREDS of parents and families in the Rochester area are singing the praises of our children’s program, and telling other parents about it every day, because they’ve seen it for themselves, too.

Martial Arts for Adults

Our unique martial arts program for adults is the best way in the Rochester area to lose weight and get in shape because every movement has a purpose – a self-defense purpose that might one day save your life! 

Students from 18 to 80 also tell us they use the benefits of improved concentration, self-discipline, and self-confidence every day at home, at work, and in social situations.

Martial Arts for Families

In our innovative martial arts program for Families, everyone participates: children, parents, and grandparents can attend classes and progress at their own pace. In our action-packed family classes, no one sits on the bench! Children practice with other children, and adults practice with other adults. Martial arts classes are one of the only family programs where children and parents get the same kind of healthy exercise at the same time.

After School Martial Arts

Our educational after school martial arts program is the #1 place in the Rochester area for your children to get healthy exercise while learning focus, self-confidence, and self-control. We pick them up at their elementary school and bring them to our school for a character-building education through the martial arts. Then, on your way home from work, you take them home refreshed and ready for an enjoyable evening at home.

Hi, my name is Grandmaster Sung Kim,

Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident by training at Master Kim's Taekwondo Institute!

Physical and Mental Development

Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than just a gym or some activity.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for children, parents all over Rochester give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.

Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical kicking and punching are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “CHARACTER BUILDING”.

When you train in our Rochester martial arts program which are conveniently located in Penfield, Greece and Irondequoit, you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on RESPECT, DISCIPLINE, FOCUS, and PERSEVERANCE. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” introductory offer, and see the benefits of my Rochester martial arts program for yourself!
