Jeet Kune Do Facts
JKD was created and developed by Bruce Lee from 1964 to 1969 in California, USA.
JKD was the world's first modern mixed martial arts, blending arts from the United States, Europe and Asia for the first time.
The goal of JKD is to end the fight in seconds, not minutes.
JKD was made solely for self-defense, especially against multiple attackers.
Bruce Lee despised traditional martial arts, like Karate. He believed in science, innovation, and progressive thinking. His JKD is a reflection of his beliefs.
JKD was designed for a smaller person to defeat a much bigger and stronger attacker.
JKD defeats a stronger attacker with the superior use of speed, skill and strategy. The idea is to outsmart your opponent, not out-muscle him.
JKD is a blend of Boxing, Wing Chun, French Kickboxing (Savate), Muay Thai, Judo, Japanese Jujitsu, Wrestling, Shooto, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pencak Silat, and Kali Escrima.
JKD is the first martial art that incorporated full-contact sparring with safety protective gear into class training. Before JKD came along, there was no such thing as full-contact sparring. Bruce Lee was the first to say, "You can't know whether it works until you make full contact."
JKD training focuses on physical fitness and athletic training. Students will develop speed, strength, stamina, agility, and explosiveness. Through partner drills, equipment training, and sparring, you will gain incredible fitness.
