Coree McCabe began her training in Tempe, Arizona under the direction of Papa George Lim and Tutu Patrice Lim. She has been training in martial arts for over 20 years, and was promoted to black belt by Papa Lim in February, 2005. All of her advanced rank promotions were presented by Papa George Lim and Hanshi Patrice Lim, personally.
Professor Coree brought Lim Kenpo to South Dakota in 2005, where she founded and developed Lim Kenpo Karate South Dakota in Rapid City. Today she runs the school with her husband, Head Instructor Kyle. She also advises Head Instructor Douglas as he runs his school AltaMeta Kenpo in Cheyenne, WY.
Coree strongly believes that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, fairness, and respect, and she uses her role as a nurse, wife, mother, martial arts instructor and dog rescue volunteer to help advocate for and protect the vulnerable.
