Southeast Jeet Kune Do offers expert instruction, flexible programs, and a family friendly atmosphere for martial arts and self defense training. We are the operating chapter of the Jeet Kune Do Athletic Association for the greater Augusta, GA area. Through our classes, students develop the ability to focus the mind, strengthen the body, and live with confidence.

We are sincerely dedicated to the success of our members and students. We seek to promote realistic self defense methods, athletic martial arts training, functional fitness, and the overall martial lifestyle. We offer low student-instructor ratios, as well as personalized coaching and feedback. All of this is done in a family-friendly environment.

We operate from a simple belief that our members are our #1 focus, and develop each individual accordingly. To accomplish this, we provide honest, instructive, and sincere coaching. At Southeast JKD, you will never walk in and feel like you aren’t welcomed, or are forgotten the moment you sign up.

We also do not believe you should be required to sign up for long-term contracts, or a 3 year “Black Belt” training commitment, to be able to train with us. Our quality speaks for itself.  Members who choose use are looking to experience real martial arts, not collect a bunch of colorful belts. Besides, we cannot guarantee you will be a black belt in 3 years. Any school that promises otherwise would be doing you a disservice.

When you become a member, you join a family of committed, hard-working individuals dedicated to pursuing self-expression, self-knowledge, and self-protection through realistic martial arts training. You can trust us to help you to learn to defend yourself and your family. We have taught our methods and self defense tactics to a variety of individuals from professionals and women's groups to law enforcement and military. Read more about our self defense programs...

We opened our doors with the intention to teach the most effective, simple, and realistic self-defense methods. As a student, you will experience world class martial arts training and challenge yourself by learning Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, alongside Filipino Martial Arts (Kali & Eskrima) and Close Quarter Defense Tactics. We also incorporate techniques and strategies from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, Boxing, Savate & Muay Thai to promote health, wellness, and practical self-defense skills.

The training is suitable for all ages, as the learning environment is both safe and family-friendly. In fact, our kids program is one of our most popular programs! We want to help give your child the tools to develop real courage and confidence! Our lessons have helped kids and teens overcome issues related to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional-Defiant Disorder (ODD), Asperger’s Syndrome, and others.

Kids also learn age-appropriate self defense skills to help them deal with bullies in a smart and effective manner. Since 2010, we have coached hundreds (maybe thousands!) of children to develop intelligent self defnse skills, through positive, focused activities. Read more about our kids programs...

The Southeast Jeet Kune Do Difference

Some schools are all form and no function. They claim to teach self-defense, but their class time is spent teaching artistic forms, static stances, and extensive stretching protocols. None of these areas teach you anything about how to defend yourself. Your personal safety can’t wait until you can do a split or finish the choreography being taught. You need something you can use right away. Enter Southeast JKD.

Southeast JKD is NOT a franchise martial arts studio with spa-like amenities, long term contracts, or marketing gimmicks (like board breaking classes). We also do NOT have 12 year old “Black Belts” teaching our beginner classes. We teach you in detailed, step by step format. You will learn techniques with simple, easy to follow progressions that ensure you train safely and consistently. Once you have embedded the movement, then you can spar with it to make it effective and instinctual.

We offer a minimalist, no-nonsense, no frills approach to training with certified instructors in every class. We believe that you should be able to learn how to protect yourself, no matter your current physical level. We focus our class time on showing you simple, effective moves that almost anyone can perform. In this way, you become proficient at defending yourself in a much shorter amount of time.

Southeast Jeet Kune Do is the only authentic Jeet Kune Do organization in the CSRA. No other instructor or school in the entire area is authorized by us or any other higher organization to teach, instruct, or pass on Jeet Kune Do, Jun Fan Gung Fu, or JKD Concepts. Period.
