Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do is derived from Jun Fan Gung Fu. Jun Fan is Bruce Lee's birth name, so Jun Fan Gung Fu was his personal Kung Fu system. Jeet Kune Do is a process of personal development that uses many methods but is bound by none. "Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is uniquely your own" - Lee
The Way of the Intercepting Fist
Jeet Kune Do translates to “Way of the Intercepting Fist”. This concept of intercepting is so important to the system, that the principle is in the name of the art. That being said, it is just a name don’t fuss over it. There are many principles that Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do is comprised of, however. It is far beyond an eclectic combination of techniques and drills.
Jeet Kune Do was born out of frustration of Bruce Lee’s own development and lack of adaptability during a confrontation in 1967. With a core set of techniques and training methods, Jeet Kune Do used Wing Chun, Boxing and Fencing as the primary systems of combat to further develop his training and understanding of combat.
Our lineage comes from Sifu Ron Balicki, certified by Dan Inosanto, who was certified by Bruce Lee. We continue our training and research into personal development in order to ensure we have current self defense techniques and strategies that are relative to the times.
Jeet Kune Do: it’s just a name; don’t fuss over it. There’s no such thing as a style if you understand the roots of combat.
