Jeet Kune Do (JKD) was developed by Bruce Lee in the 60’s and 70’s. It’s a philosophical art which means it’s based on concepts and philosophy. Jeet Kune Do literally means “way of interception” and emphasizes economy of motion.
Classes combine arts like Filipino Martial Arts, Boxing, Thai Boxing, Savate and Jiu Jitsu to make students a more well rounded martial artist. Each practitioner in JKD is going to be different in there own way, different height, weight, athleticism etc. A student has to train what works for them, like driving a friend’s car. Adjusting the seat, mirror and the steering wheel, before she drives away. This is where an experienced instructor is critical. He has the ability to look at each student and “tailor fit” the arts to their individual needs. Learning street awareness, having confidence in your self defense skills, getting a great workout, having fun learning more about yourself and your ability is what the JKD class is all about. JKD has a free-form curriculum, so no testing is necessary. However, we offer instructional videos to our members to assist them in achieving their success every month.
