Jeet Kune Do / Jing Mo Concepts

Jeet Kune Do, JKD Concepts and Jun Fan Gung Fu is not a style onto itself. Rather, it is the system of philosophy and concepts developed by SiJo Bruce Lee and continued by Dan Inosanto. With Wing Chun at the core of his system, SiJo Bruce Lee incorporated a modification of various techniques from Northern Praying Mantis, Southern Praying Mantis, Choy Li Fut, Eagle Claw, Western Boxing, Wrestling, Fencing, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and some of the more refined kicks of the Northern & Southern Chinese styles. Innovative and radically ahead of his time in his training and teaching methodology, SiJo Bruce developed a martial system and fighting strategy that has lost none of its effectiveness over time. Emphasizing the “ranges of combat”, students are taught to confidently flow from long-distance kicking range to middle distance (“hand range”), to close quarters (“trapping & grappling range”). The movements are crisp and efficient, utilizing the most direct lines and angles. JKD affords the practitioner a means by which to effectively pursue the most direct line of attack. Once an attack has been launched there are no breaks or interruptions. As one technique nears to completion, it starts blend into the next and so forth; techniques become one continuous flowing motion until the conflict is resolved.

Jun Fan or Lee Jun Fan is the Chinese name of Bruce Lee. As a set curriculum, Jun Fan may be limited to specific techniques and training, while Jeet Kune Do has no such limitation. While Jun Fan is one tool that can be used to train the principles and concepts of JKD, it is not the only one. The Jun Fan Gung Fu / JKD Concepts are devoted to teaching and preserving the arts and philosophies of the late Bruce Lee. Students can enhance their natural attributes, such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength, and agility using the innovative teaching and training methods developed by SiJo Bruce, and preserved and taught to us by his protégé, student and training partner, Sifu Dan Inosanto.

The Chinese character Jing literally means refine, exquisite, essence, fine, high quality, quintessential. The character Mo literally means martial, with the connotation of martial arts. When placed together the Chinese characters for Jing Mo refer to polishing or refining of the martial arts or the “Constant refining and polishing of your martial art”. Jing Mo is what we seek to achieve in our daily training. Our goal is to consistently seek to better refine or polish our abilities in the martial arts and ultimately ourselves.

Jing Mo Kickboxing Juniors, ages 12 and under

Our program for children incorporates multiple martial arts systems – Jun Fan Gung Fu / Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Wing Chun Kung Fu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Silat, and weapons training for defense and coordination. The class uses a theme-based curriculum to teach a solid base of effective martial arts skills from multiple systems. The martial arts systems are broken out here to educate children in different styles. They may find through training they really like one style over another and choose to go in that direction either at our school or another school that specializes in something we don’t offer as a standalone program. This class teaches focus, concentration, self-discipline, respect, and physical coordination. Each level focuses on one aspect of training and includes the development of mental, emotional, and educational skills in addition to physical techniques. Most importantly, each class is fun and exciting, filled with activities that make learning enjoyable. While students learn self-defense skills, the focus is on safety and prevention, rather than physical confrontations. The benefits that our students realize in our youth martial art classes extend into all areas of their life and development, including at home and in school. 

These benefits include: 

  • Effort, Focus and Concentration
  • Self-Discipline
  • Respect for Themselves and Others
  • Character and Self-Esteem
  • Self-Confidence
  • Self-Control
  • Etiquette
  • Teamwork
  • Physical Coordination and Motor Skills

The commitment to the development of our students enables them to achieve improved study habits and concentration in school, better performance in sports and improved social skills with their peers. While working closely with their parents, our students learn the importance of goal setting and perseverance, to achieve results. As a result, this behavior and the other benefits are displayed at home and in school.

Wing Chun Kung Fu

Wing Chun is a Chinese system of Kung Fu that specializes in developing dynamic, explosive and street-oriented practical self-defense. According to Chinese legend and folklore, Wing Chun is believed to be developed by the Shaolin Master Ng Mui. It is said that in her travels she spotted a crane and a snake locked in battle. The snake kept circling the crane and would charge with very forceful attacks, while the crane maintained its center keeping aligned with the snake it would deflect the attacks with its wings while simultaneously striking the snake with its beak. This gave Ng Mui the idea to develop a new fighting system. Her first student was a young woman named Yim Wing Chun. At the time Yim Wing Chun was being harassed by a local warlord who was trying to force her to marry him. Ng Mui began to teach Yim Wing Chun this new fighting style. In a short amount of time Yim Wing Chun mastered this new style and challenged the warlord for her freedom. She easily defeated the warlord and went on to marry her true love, Leung Bok Chau. She went on to teach him this new style and he formally started a school naming it after his wife, Wing Chun.

Wing Chun relies on developing leverage and sensitivity rather than muscular strength to overcome an opponent. Training builds fast reflexes, coordination and power to enable someone to quickly and effortlessly dispatch a larger and stronger attacker without relying on size or strength.

Through the use of solo forms, training equipment such as the wooden dummy and focus mitts, as well as two person drills, students develop attributes of body coordination, sensitivity and leverage to apply the principles of Wing Chun in all situations including trapping, grappling and punching/kicking.
