Jun Fan Gung Fu / Jeet Kune Do
Founded by the late Bruce Lee, Jun Fan Gung Fu / Jeet Kune Do is a dynamic system of martial arts designed specifically for self-defense. Utilizing training methodologies and aspects from many fighting systems such as Wing Chun Gung Fu, Western Boxing, Kickboxing, European Fencing, and many others, the ultimate goal of Jeet Kune Do is to provide students with the ability to discover for themselves which techniques will work best for self-defense. Students of Jeet Kune Do accomplish this by following four primary concepts:
- Research one’s own experience
- Absorb what is useful
- Reject that which is useless
- Add what is specifically your own
Beginning with Jun Fan Gung Fu (Bruce Lee’s original system) students learn the fundamental techniques necessary to begin their own personal journey of self- discovery. Once the foundation has been laid, students progress to learn the concepts and training methods of Jeet Kune Do to become well-rounded fighters effective in all four ranges of hand-to-hand combat.
