Amazing Cincinnati Martial Arts Classes for Adults Get You Stronger, Safer, and More Fit. Fast!



Dear Friend,

My name is Kiyoshi Nishime, Owner and Chief Instructor of Nishime Martial Arts.

I began my martial arts journey with Karate in Okinawa, Japan over 50 years ago, and never looked back. Since then, I’ve trained my wife, my sons, and my grandsons in martial arts. Now we offer Karate, Jiu Jitsu, and Krav Maga in Cincinnati, Florence, Lawrenceburg, Delhi, and Blue Ash.

Why? Because, as you'll very quickly discover... martial arts is about so much more than "fighting."

It's about becoming a better you.

You'll learn powerful methods to defend yourself...but, hopefully, you'll never have to use it.

Meanwhile, the confidence, focus, and inner-strength you get will help you EVERY day for the rest of your life.

The boost in fitness will make you feel healthier, stronger, and more energetic.

And that, my friend, is what it's all about.

But don't just take my word for it. Check out the rave reviews and positive changes according to our very own fellow Nishime Martial Arts peeps!

Find out how much their lives have changed...for the better and then try it for yourself!

When I came into the dojo for the first time a few years back, little did I know how much of an impact karate would have on my life. I didn't realize how much I would change and how I could see many things in my life a different way. An obvious change is that I'm in better shape now than I have ever been. I'm thinner, faster, and more flexible than I have ever been in my whole life.

Karate is a great teacher. It teaches discipline, confidence, patience, and even a sense of peace. My time in class is intense; so intense that it makes me forget everything else I tend to be consumed with on a daily basis. It is a time to clear my mind and focus on what I am doing at that moment.

I am physically stronger than I have ever been in my life. That is a great feeling. Confidence has grown in many areas of my life, not just karate. In fact, striving for my Black Belt has inspired me to reach other goals, like running my first marathon this May.
