If there's a built-in key command in Vim that you find annoying, or that you often hit by accident, then you can disable the key by mapping it to nothing. For example:

:map K <Nop>

For "<Nop>", type the five characters as they appear (less-than N o p greater-than).

Of course, you can always

:unmap K

if you start doing C programming and want to instantly "man" things under the cursor again.
