Jeet Kune Do is an art and training philosophy developed by Bruce Lee. It is not a style. It is essentially MMA for self-defence with its content and concepts based on combat effectiveness.
With MMA being well promoted and commonly now known, it is easy to assume that all mixed martial arts are the same. However, CDS offers something different in MMA training with JKD Concepts being self-defence focused rather than sport based.
Although there are common methods of training and familiar techniques shared, much of our content is unique in that it is simply not allowed under a set of rules. Directness and simplicity is emphasised while using whatever technique is required within any given range. These ranges include punching range, kicking range, trapping range and grappling range, all identified so as to understand and apply the appropriate technique applicable. The aim is to be able to flow seamlessly between multiple arts given the range we find ourselves in. Joint locking, breaking, trapping, grappling and weapons are also inclusive to provide a complete holistic approach to self-defence.
As JKD is all inclusive and recognises all ranges of Combat, there are many arts that are drawn from. While it is obvious that it is very difficult to master multiple arts in their entirety, it is the essence or effectiveness of a particular art that is drawn on.
JKD draws on some of the following arts but is not limited to; Wing Chun, Southern and Northern styles of Gung-Fu, Mauy Thai, Boxing, Kickboxing, Filipino Martial Arts such as Kali (Also known as Escrima and Arnis), Silat, French Kickboxing (Savate), BJJ, Shooto and Wrestling.
With Certified Instructors under Guro Dan Inosanto who was one of Bruce Lee’s best friends and regular training partner, you can be assured that you are getting the very best in JKD Concepts training in Perth.
Furthermore, we are the only current and certified instructors in JKD in Perth. I would recommend that the relevant research be done before training under anyone that claims to teach JKD in Perth but is not certified to do so.
