About Us

At Kime Karate we put training first.

We have worked hard to create an environment that is conducive to the best possible martial arts and fitness training. Students learn traditional martial arts in a progressive, systematized self defense practice.

Functional Self Defense

We teach a system that is self defense based. A self defense system that is practical and functional that will actually help you deal with real altercations, not develop false confidence. While most schools teach a system that is sport based, our system is based on functional self defense because it is better to have the skills and never need them rather then need the skills and not have them.

This is one of the many reasons why we are invited into the local school districts to teach self defense and anti-bully skills. Our school does it right, with our age appropriate training and strong anti-bully message. You don’t have to be aggressive to defend yourself, no bullying necessary.

We teach in local schools

Sensei Keyes was the first to develop a formal self defense curriculum to teach school aged kids self defense within the United States and has been refining it every year since. He is the only instructor in the area to run a self defense program in local school districts as part of that school district’s curriculum. Where other martial arts instructors are turned away, he is invited into local school’s including the Fairport, Victor & Brighton school districts.
