Welcome to Japanese Karate-Do

11910 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45249

(513) 697-8988


The Japanese Karate-Do dojo was founded by Sensei Sonny Kim in 1996, based on the principles of personalized training, specifically design toward each individual's needs and abilities.



We welcome anyone who wants to learn Karate, from beginners to those who simply want to improve and develop their current skills and those who want to expand their skills and techniques to a much higher level.


Aside from being one of the most effective methods of self-defense, Karate is an excellent form of stress management and aerobic exercise for the entire family. Using all the muscle groups, karate training develops flexibility, coordination, balance, posture, and muscle tone. It is a great way to improve your health and overall fitness.


Go through our website and get to know us a little better. The first four navigation tabs at the top of the page are especially for you. However, you are still welcome to view the Student Section.


Our website can only go so far. So, feel free to visit the karate school and watch some of the classes in our visitor viewing area. Or better yet, make an appointment to participate in an Introductory Lesson. Just give us a call at
