Krav Maga Jeet Kune Do

Learn Krav Maga and Jeet Kune Do at Tandez Academy of Martial Arts

Krav Maga is an Israeli self-defense system which combines techniques from boxing, karate, judo, jiu-jitsu and aikido to create a comprehensive and effective close combat system. It emphasizes using natural body movements, aggression and counter-attacks to incapacitate an attacker. Krav Maga also teaches practitioners how to maintain awareness of their environment in order to identify potential threats. Krav Maga provides practical self-defense skills that can be used in real-life situations and offers knowledge and confidence to practitioners. It is an ideal self-defense system for those looking to learn how to protect themselves against a wide range of threats and provides the skills needed to take control of a situation, while emphasizing the importance of avoiding conflict whenever possible.


Jeet Kune Do (Way of the Intercepting Fist) is Bruce Lee's self-defense system. JKD emphasizes pre-emptive striking (attack the attacker first), explosive speed, and aggression. JKD practitioners believe that the best way to stop an attacker is to hit them first, then follow-up with pressurizing attacks until the attacker is incapacitated. JKD focuses on offense first.


Just like Krav Maga, JKD is not limited to any one style or technique, but instead incorporates a variety of techniques from different martial arts, such as Boxing, Wing Chun, Muay Thai, Judo, and Jujitsu. JKD practitioners believe in using whatever works best for them in any given situation. Bruce Lee created JKD as a way to change the way people thought about and practiced martial arts. He believed that most martial arts were too rigid and focused on forms and techniques that were no longer relevant in a real fight. JKD is about simplicity and effectiveness. It is about being able to defend yourself in any situation, using whatever you have at your disposal. JKD has been influential in the development of many other martial arts, such as Mixed Martial Arts, and Bruce Lee is considered one of the most influential martial artists of all time.
