About Bruce Lee and Jeet Kune Do

For Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do was more than a way of fighting, but a process of self-discovery and growth. JKD was founded on training principles and techniques from Wing Chun, Boxing, Kickboxing, and Fencing. It was named for the concept of interception, or attacking your opponent while he is about to attack.

Through his studies Lee came to believe that most martial arts styles had become too rigid and unrealistic. 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.

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.
