Jeet Kune Do is simply the most complete martial art available. JKD is a non-classical method of martial arts founded by Bruce Lee and based on a solid understanding of the human body as a weapon of self-defense. It is a method that seeks simplicity, directness and economy of motion.

Bruce Lee desired a more complete method of fighting based on natural human movement rather than learning to move like an insect or animal like other forms of traditional martial arts. The JKD method is based in physics and body mechanics and allows the individual to express themselves and to explore their inner workings rather than being a slave to form.

Cultivating the body in the JKD method simply means that you are going to get a workout. These workouts include punching and kicking drills using focus mitts and side shields, bag workouts, light sparring, trapping, ground work and more! The best thing about this is you’ll love it, get a good sweat and leave with a sense of well-being.
