Jeet Kune Do (or JKD) translates to English roughly as "the way of the intercepting fist". It was created by the late Bruce Lee. JKD focuses heavily on the use of kinesiology and physics to create a powerful striking arsenal. With a strong emphasis on footwork, distance and timing become some of the greatest weapons. The added mobility of JKD footwork creates the ability to evade punches, set up attacks, break timing, and use the body’s inertia to one’s advantage. JKD is a unique strategic approach to the martial arts.
At JKD Colorado, you will learn to hit, kick, and move your body in ways you never thought possible. Whether you are a seasoned martial artist or a beginner to it all, there is a great amount to be learned with JKD from a physical, strategic, or even philosophical point of view. What will be gained is new insight into self confidence, self defense, and physical training.
Jeet Kune Do is great for men, women, and children. It provides a realistic way of looking at fighting, one that is progressive as well as effective. Soon after starting you will be hitting things, having punches thrown at you, and learning to apply the skills you learn in class. You will not learn fantasy martial arts, safe in the comfort of your personal bubble. You’ll learn no-nonsense, real-world skills that will spill over into many aspects of your life.
