Students will develop skills and gain strength, confidence, focus, and, most importantly, have fun. Our experienced instructors approach martial arts and self-defense inspired by Jeet Kune Do concepts of Bruce Lee. Additional areas of influence include Filipino Kali, Muay Thai, Silat, and other martial arts.
Since JKD is one of our core philosophies, our class curriculum covers many aspects of self-defense, including strength & conditioning, weaponry, trapping, kickboxing, clinching, takedowns, and grappling.
The guiding philosophies of our curriculum are also intended to guide a student’s personal growth by presenting new challenges and problems to solve. Overcoming the physical and mental barriers to one’s goals helps a student to grow as a person, as a member of a group, as a leader, and as a good training partner to others. Our instructors take the time to actively teach these skills as part of our curriculum.
JKD/Kali is appropriate for most ages 13 years and older, and no experience is necessary.
We offer a free two-week trial for beginners.
