What is Jeet Kune Do?

Go Directly to Class Schedule

Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is the conceptualization of fighting theory that was developed by Bruce Lee and later forwarded by his most accomplished and trusted student, Dan Inosanto.  The concepts behind JKD encompass all ranges, methods, and processes that allow practitioners to overcome their opponents.  In that regard, JKD is the only comprehensive martial art with a "combat philosophy" that focuses on evolutionary change. 

The training methods that compose Jeet Kune Do are specifically designed to ensure that practitioners have the ability to quickly adapt to any situation while still following sound and fundamental principles.  Although JKD has many similarities  to MMA and other hybrid martial arts,  the sole intent of JKD is to provide practitioners with the skills and attributes needed for effective self-defense. 

New students are often confused about the various philosophies and jargon espoused by many people in the Jeet Kune Do community, especially as this nomenclature relates to the various 'branches' of JKD.  Unfortunately, there are many people teaching JKD that have no business doing so, and regularly confuse the concepts of JKD (which can be applied to anything), with the actual methodology of JKD.  On the other end of the spectrum are many accomplished practitioners who teach their own, legitimate variations of Jeet Kune Do under similar or modified names.

Put simply, JKD is a process, and at the end of the process the student has developed their own style of fighting, at which point a student may or may not become an instructor.  If the student does become an instructor, they then decide whether they wish to teach their personal style, the original methodology, or a mixture of the two. While all of these paths are perfectly acceptable, they do serve to make the entire JKD sphere very complex and potentially misleading.
