About Jeet Kune Do
Jeek Kune Do, (The Way of The Intercepting Fist) was Developed by the late Bruce Lee. The original idea was to create something that would free the individual from styles or systems, to give the individual the tools, the concept, to develop him/herself as an individual and to give them the choice to “Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is specifically your own.” JKD borrows form the essence and strengths of many fighting arts including those used today in the ubiquitous UFC, such as Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Wrestling, and Jiu-jitsu. All of this, taking place way before the UFC was around. Bruce Lee and JKD were far ahead of their time back in 1972. And even though mixed martial arts were practiced way before the Bruce Lee era, it was Bruce Lee who not only open the door, but rather created the door for what we now know and have regarding Martial Arts. Bruce Lee was always refining his art, and most likely he would still be refining it if he was alive today. That’s what many, including his number one student, training partner and friend Guro Dan Inosanto, have done all these years, constant refining of the art. That’s what some of us aim at doing. JKD is not just trapping, trapping is just another tool. JKD is limitless “having no way as way and having no limitation as limitation.” JKD is more about the development of the individual both physically and mentally through training.
About Filipino Martial Arts (Kali / Escrima)
Filipino Martial Arts FMA has many different names, systems, styles. Kali, Escrima, and Modern Arnis, Sayoc, Serrada are just a few of the hundreds of styles, all representing a small section of the Filipino Martial Arts. FMA is often misunderstood as just an edged weapons art, but when looking at it in depth, is not the case. Kali, as is commonly, has 12 different areas of expertise: single weapon, double weapon, long and short, empty hands, healing arts and so on. FMA is not a sport, even though stick fighting has made its way into the tournament arena. FMA was design for war, battle tested by the Filipinos for hundreds of years. According to those who know and have dealt into several martial arts, FMA is one of the most complete, rewarding, mentally and physically challenging arts there is. In the last few years, it has also made it’s way into the main stream movie industry, The Hunted, The Bourne Identity, Resident Evil, I Frankenstein, just to name a few. FMA has also been a tremendous presence in the training of law enforcement, such as local police, military, and Special Forces. Today, thanks to the efforts of people like Guro Dan Inosanto, FMA is at the reach of the general public.
