Jeet Kune Do (Concepts)
Bruce Lee's expression of the martial arts and his personal refined fighting system is called Jeet Kune Do or "The Way of the Intercepting Fist" is the English translation. What Bruce discovered is that in sports and in the martial arts, it wasn't technique but rather the refinement of attributes that accounted for the superior fighter or athlete. Attributes are the primary focus of Jeet Kune Do training. People who try to label or classify Bruce's concept by cataloging its technical repertoire are misguided.
Bruce Lee's "Jeet Kune Do" is not an art form that is focused solely on techniques or particular movements in and of themselves. Rather its concepts are more deeply concerned with the manner in which the techniques or movements are performed.
Chad Von Dette offers one of the leading Jeet Kune Do programs in the country. He has dedicated himself to being on the forefront of martial arts training and teaching for more than two decades. Chad's JKD course is cutting-edge, covering in extensive detail, Bruce Lee's philosophy - teaching you striking, trapping, grappling and weapons.
