My husband and I love the fact that the kids have to earn their stripes and they’re not just given away, it teaches a good work ethic young and does away with entitlement that’s such an issue with a lot of kids these days.

Respectful Apologies to Master Guro Mr. Dan Cepeda, Master Guro Mr. Fred Cepeda, Cepeda Brothers Martial Arts, Instructors and Members – my intentions were not to deceive or misappropriate any relationships in any way. Michael Kiyoshi Lim never trained or promoted by them. I promoted, taught and continue to teach my son, Michael Kiyoshi Lim, and take full responsibility for his actions and mine. Please direct any questions to me. George Lim 480-202-5750

Sensei Michael Kiyoshi Lim

Born in beautiful San Diego, California, Sensei Kiyoshi Lim started his martial arts training as a child in Hawaii Kenpo under his father, Sōke George Lim. Michael Kiyoshi Lim was promoted to black belt directly from his father, George Lim – Lim Family Martial Arts. He is currently training in and teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. By learning Jiu Jitsu he felt complete, knowing he could protect himself and his loved ones not only by hand to hand combat, but also on the ground. Sensei Kiyoshi has medaled in every Jiu Jitsu competition he has fought in. Sensei Kiyoshi’s hope is to see the San Diego Lim Family school grow. His plans are to share what he has learned from his instructors and competition and carry on a proud family tradition. Sensei Kiyoshi’s hobbies are DJ-ing, riding motorcycles, surfing and knife collecting. When asked what his dreams are he replied, “I’m living my dreams.”
