Lim’s Hawaii Kenpo Karate

We are a school of martial arts in Rapid City, SD, and the greater Black Hills area.

Lim’s Hawaii Kenpo Karate is a traditional martial art, yet progressive in its adaptation.

It is focused on realistic self defense, blending Chinese and Hawaiian techniques into practical application.

Our style is taught, learned, and practiced on a foundation of the Hawaiian ideas of ‘Ohana and the Aloha spirit, but with a ferocious intensity that allows no compromise when survival is at stake.

But we’re not just about martial arts techniques. While self-defense is important, we also believe in developing life skills in our students. Ideas such as respect, self-control, discipline, and humility are taught alongside our self-defense techniques. Learn who we are and how we train…
