Jeet Kune Do

Jeet Kune Do is a hybrid martial arts system and life philosophy founded by martial artist Bruce Lee with direct, simple and non classical movements. Due to the way his style works they believe in minimal movement with maximum effect and extreme speed. The system works on the use of different 'tools' for different situations. It is referred to as a "style without style".
Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned, and is a philosophy with guiding thoughts. As often Bruce Lee said, Jeet Kune Do is just a name. He himself often referred to it as "The art of expressing the human body" in his writings and in interviews. He called martial art competitions of the day "Dry land swimming". He believed that combat was spontaneous, and that a martial artist cannot predict it, only react to it, and that a good martial artist should "Be like water" and move fluidly without hesitation.

The group JKD Kali Kung-Fu, is the official representative and leader of the Jeet Kune Do Association Taiwan.

In our classes, we teach Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do (Kung-Fu) and Jeet Kune Do Concepts.
