Jeet Kune Do translates to English roughly as "the way of the intercepting fist". It was created by the late Bruce Lee in the 1960's as he began to liberate himself from the limitations of classical Wing Chun Kung Fu. As he applied his significant knowledge of kinesiology and physics to his martial arts, he began to see that the essence of Kung Fu was really to remove the artificial limitations imposed by traditional styles. With his new freedom, he bucked the trend of the classical systems and introduced the top martial artists in America to a new way of thinking about fighting. Lee evolved his personal expression of the martial arts up until his untimely passing in 1973.
We practice Jeet Kune Do as it was taught directly to Sifu Ted Wong by Bruce Lee. It is pure and un-mixed with other styles of martial arts. It is not just the ideas or concepts of JKD, but the actual techniques and strategies Bruce taught to his private students.
Sifu Ted Wong
Sifu Wong never learned any other martial arts, and he was careful to only teach to others exactly what was taught to him by Bruce Lee. Sifu Wong was a best friend and training partner right up until Bruce's passing and was one of the few to learn what became the final evolution of JKD. He has graciously passed this knowledge down to a small group of individuals and earned world-wide recognition as one of the foremost authorities on Bruce Lee's teachings.
With simplicity, directness, and being non-classical-- Jeet Kune Do is Bruce Lee's ultimate expression of the human body through martial arts.

There is no mystery about my style. My movements are simple, direct and non-classical. The extraordinary part of it lies in its simplicity. Every movement in Jeet Kune-Do is being so of itself. There is nothing artificial about it. I always believe that the easy way is the right way. Jeet Kune-Do is simply the direct expression of one's feelings with the minimum of movements and energy. The closer to the true way of Kung Fu, the less wastage of expression there is.
