Integral Self-Defense Academy
Our Expression of Jeet Kune Do:
We adhere closely to the original JKD method, aka Jun Fan Gung Fu (Seattle School circa 1963), we focus on and express Jeet Kune Do's concepts (see below) utilizing Ip Man's Wing Chun. But we won't say we teach Jun Fan JKD, as Jun Fan is Bruce Lee's Cantonese name, because it was Bruce Lee's personal honest expression of the principles and philosophy of Jeet Kune Do.
In all honesty Jeet Kune Do is not a formalized style. Rather, it is a philosophy/framework that is meant to be applied by the individual to gain martial self-expression under the lense of the core principles of Jeet Kune Do that were expounded to us by its founder the late great Bruce Lee. It is under this concept that JKD was never meant to be a static art but rather an ongoing personal evolution.
Train with us you will soon find out that we never use the words "must" or "have to". The concepts that are utilized for self-defense are meant to flow and thus be totally dynamic in approach. And the words "must" or "have to" are static in nature; which are in effect the very antithesis of the reality of an actual physical altercation.
