The Academy

Located in Brockport NY, Master Lim’s Taekwondo Academy is a new and unique Taekwondo facility. Training focuses on techniques and philosophical foundations that make it a way of life as well as a martial art. Students learn Taekwondo’s unique kicking, punching, and blocking techniques through training in form (poomsae), self defense, and free sparring (International Olympic style). Practicing Taekwondo instills confidence, respect, and focus while improving physical fitness, weight control, strength, and stamina. The philosophy of Taekwondo emphasizes respect for self and others.

At Master Lim’s Taekwondo Academy, parents, grandparents and all family members of our students are welcomed to watch the classes and enjoy how their kids learn and have fun with Master Lim and his trainers. He makes the classes fun and enjoyable with a quick wit, and a personality that keeps the kids engaged and smiling throughout the class. There is never a boring moment and it is truly a family gathering every class at Master Lim’s.

  • Both my kids have been with Master Lim for 3 years! it is the best program you could ever put your kids into. Master Lim is by far the best instructor and teaches all his classes. He is fantastic with all kids and he has a way about him that all the kids not only respect him fully, but they love him! My kids have just received their black belts and they are so excited with all the hard work they have done. They have learned respect, self defense, self confidence and patience in this program. This is the best thing you can do for your kids and worth every penny spent.

  • Our family of four started TKD at Master Lim’s almost three years ago and we hope to earn black belt next spring. We split our time between adult classes, kids’ belt classes, and family classes. Master Lim is a gifted instructor of technique and philosophy, and he helps every individual reach his/her full potential. As adults, we are able to do things we never imagined possible, and after three years, we are still always excited to go to class. Our kids have learned respect, grown personally, and gained physical confidence. Master Lim’s is our family’s favorite place to spend time, not just for the excellent instruction and exercise but for the supportive atmosphere and the camaraderie with all of our TKD friends and families.

  • Out of all the masters I’ve had in several different martial arts, Master Lim is my favorite. Not only because he knows his stuff but also because of the stress free way he teaches his students and how he connects with them… If you have any hesitation about going to him for instruction because you want to find the best in this area, save yourself the trouble and go see him, you won’t be sorry.

  • Both of my kids have learned Taekwondo from Master Lim. I have never seen an instructor or coach connect so well with my kids. He is hands down the best instructor around.


  • Our granddaughter tried Taekwondo with Master Lim as her instructor and the transition is amazing! The confidence in her own self worth has grown so much.

  • My son is really excited about Taekwondo. In a two month period his confidence has come so far. Great for exercise and discipline. Would definitely recommend.


  • Master Lim is not only a very skilled and knowledgeable individual within the taekwondo martial arts, but also a tremendously kind, patient, and caring instructor. I could not ask for a better role model for my son. He has given my son a great path to follow.

  • Master Lim taught my wife and me, and now we are eager to involve our kids. Master Lim is excellent with kids and other beginners, but can challenge the best black belts to improve. Just a wonderful person.
