Kids and Teen JKD

Kids classes are about discovering self-confidence, learning respect to others, developing coordination, and finally about understanding the realities of physical confrontation. More than a simple self-defense class, this is a self-discovery class and our primary goal is to teach how to defeat your toughest opponent... yourself.

Classes are age-appropriate and exciting. Younger kids will enjoy playing games that teach skills while having fun. Older kids will be introduced to more physically-demanding drills and given the opportunity to assist younger students and share their experience. For kids classes, physical contact will be limited to punching and kicking pads and there will be no sparring.

Our season runs September - May each year and culminates with a testing day in May. Students will test and work to move into the next level. Levels are classified using different colored shirts for our uniform. Level 1 is black, Level 2 is white, Level 3 is yellow, Level 4 is green, Level 5 is blue, Level 6 is purple and Level 6 is brown.

Adult JKD

This class requires stamina and reasonable physical fitness. You should be prepared to push yourself past your limits in every class. Bruce Lee was a big proponent of physical fitness and we try to instill this into every student.

We train for realistic fighting situations. Jeet Kune Do is not sport-fighting. Expect to be trading punches and kicks with another person in every class. We generally begin with focus pad drills and/or footwork drills. You will learn specific techniques and how to combine your techniques with fast-moving footwork. Since JKD is based on the principle of interception, prepare to have feet and fists moving at you while you learn. As rough as this sounds, rarely do injuries occur. You will learn how to control your attacks for the sake of drills and avoid injury to yourself and others.
