All things Jeet Kune Do

I want to use an analogy (big surprise there!) to explore some of the reasoning why Bruce Lee began using the name of Jeet Kune Do for his martial arts, why It’s not Wing Chun, and why people have a hard time seeing the difference.


I have several students who often ask me questions about philosophy or my outlook in regards to martial arts.



I get this from a lot of people. They learn a bit about my journey and then will ask me, “So, why did you move to Winnipeg?” It’s actually a great question.


Many people are surprised to find that being a martial arts instructor is my full time occupation.

Chi Sao is viewed differently by many groups. This is the Jeet Kune Do perspective.
