Martial Arts

Jeet Kune Do

A practical, self-defence focused martial art founded by the great Bruce Lee. In his own words, Lee referred to his Martial Art as “non-classical” or “formless”. Unlike traditional Martial Arts, Jeet Kune Do is not taught from any codified knowledge or fixed pattern. Jeet Kune Do rather emphasises expression through movement. It is built upon a philosophy that the individual, and his or her expression thereof, is more important than any fighting system itself.

Judo
