Jeet Kune Do

Jeet kune do is the martial art developed by the late Bruce Lee.. Using techniques and strategies borrowed from wing chun gung fu, western boxing, and fencing, jeet kune do means "way of the intercepting fist", and involves the natural expression of universal principles applied strategically in order to control and defeat your attacker.

To reach me, you must move to me. Your preparation of attack offers me a directional commitment to intercept you.

-Bruce Lee. Commentaries on the Martial Way p. 54

Jeet kune do favours formlessness so that it can assume all forms, and since it has no style, jeet kune do fits in with all styles. As a result, jeet kune do uses all ways and is bound by none, and uses any technique or means which serves its end.

Our teachings are based on the principle of controlling Distance, Timing & Rhythm while implementing JKD's Five Ways of Attack.
