Jeet Kune Do Is Known As The Forerunner To Mixed Martial Arts!
More than just a Martial Arts style, Jeet Kune Do incorporates the philosophy and concepts developed by Bruce Lee.
Bruce Lee electrified the martial arts world in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The art created by this martial arts innovator had many roots and different influences. As he pieced the elements together that suited him best, the art that emerged from his research was a compelling and completely new system of training.
Based upon the principle of simplicity, realism, and individuality; void of rituals and sport aspects developed by Bruce Lee for street combat and self-defence applications. The way you train in class is the way you fight on the streets. Jeet Kune Do is the ultimate, complete martial arts system, since it can use any of the most economical & effective techniques available today in the martial arts, regardless of style; it addresses all the ranges of combat can occur (blunt/edged weapons, kicking, boxing, trapping/clinch and grappling); and the way that a fight can mutate in seconds, for example, going from empty hand, to against a weapon, to mass attack (multiple opponents), to the ground in a matter of seconds. The aim of JKD is to be able to be proficient in all ranges, with or without weapons, against one or multiple opponents, in a variety of environments. To do so it draws from a variety of styles by absorbing what is useful and rejecting what is useless.
Jeet Kune Do is also referred to as Scientific Streetfighting
The use of training equipment like focus mitts and Thai pads, the mixing of trapping and grappling methods as well as taking the best techniques and training methods from each art he studied made this new art a dynamic and complete system. Bruce Lee sought to eliminate the strict, stylized training that was common at that time and let each student find his/her own way. Elements that would suit many types of students and allow the practitioner to defend against all types of opponents were included and developed.
This revolutionary art is known for its economy of motion and integration of arts!
The guiding principle of the art is personal growth and continued research and development. This program is a mix of high energy kickboxing drills, intricate trapping, locking and infighting and occasional ground tactics. You’ll get a good work out and learn why this art electrified the martial arts world.
With Wing Chun at the core of his system, Bruce Lee incorporated a modification of various techniques from Northern Praying Mantis, Southern Praying Mantis, Choy Li Fut, Eagle Claw, Western Boxing, Wrestling, Fencing, Savate, Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai and some of the more refined kicks of the Northern & Southern Chinese styles.
Innovative and radically ahead of his time in his training and teaching methodology, Bruce Lee developed a martial system and fighting strategy that has lost none of its effectiveness over time!
Emphasizing the “ranges of combat”. Students are taught to confidently and with ease “flow” from long distance,"kicking-range”, to middle distance, “hand-range”, to close quarter, “trapping & grappling range”.
The movements are crisp, and efficient, utilizing the most direct lines and angles. JKD affords the practitioner a means by which to effectively pursue the most direct line of attack. And once an attack has been launched there are no breaks or interruptions. As one technique nears completion, it starts to blend into the next and so forth: one continuos flowing motion until the conflict is resolved.
By learning the Jeet Kune Do structure you will get specialized understanding of the philosophy behind JKD, which will enable you to dissect all other martial arts through your own “JKD Filter” (or a “BS filter” as my Sifu and many Bruce Lee's first generation students call it).
The Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do program at King of the Ring Martial Arts are devoted entirely to teaching and preserving the arts & philosophies of the late Bruce Lee.
Students are able to enhance their natural attributes, such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength and agility, using the innovative teaching and training methods developed by Bruce Lee, and preserved and taught to today by his protégé, student, training partner and best friend, Dan Inosanto.
Bruce’s art & philosophy (Jeet Kune Do) form the guiding principles at King of the Ring Martial Arts.
Bruce Lee’s Commentaries on the Martial Arts
Jeet Kune do is training and discipline toward the ultimate reality in self-defence, the ultimate reality in simplicity. A true JKD man never opposes force or gives way completely. Be pliable as a spring. Be the complement not the opposition to your opponents strength. Make his technique your technique.
You should respond to any circumstances without any prearrangement, your action should be like the immediacy of a shadow adapting to a moving object against the sun.
Your task is simply to complete the other half of the oneness spontaneously. There is nothing to “try” to do in the final stage of JKD, opponent, self, “techniques”, are all forgotten. Everything simply “flows”. The true art of JKD is not to accumulate but to eliminate. Respond like an echo.
Adapt like a shadow. Strike like an arrow.
Totality and freedom of expression toward the ever changing opponent should be the goal of all practitioners of JKD.
When you understand the root of JKD you will know all its manifestations.
