Our adult class offers lessons in both Jeet Kune Do and Duo Ji Kung Fu.
Jeet Kune Do
“Way of the Intercepting Fist”, the martial art that Bruce Lee created and often highlighted in his motion pictures, is a dynamic and explosive martial art that flows through all ranges.
Duo Ji “Many Ways” Kung Fu is a defensive art founded by Ed Monaghan. The art takes a systematic and broad approach to develop a full spectrum of martial skills. The core philosophy is to learn to apply all techniques in multiple ways, making creativity and adaptability key elements.
When you come to Evolution Martial Arts for class, you are welcomed into a positive learning environment by friendly students. After changing into your indoor athletic shoes and attire, class officially begins with all students lining up to perform a simple bow-in to the instructor. Over the hour you will receive professional Jeet Kune Do instruction applied to realistic real-world applications. Instruction consists of JKD philosophy, demonstrations, drills and practicing movements with other students and the instructor. Class sizes are kept small and intimate so every student can receive appropriate instructor one-on-one time. At the conclusion of the class, all students line up and are given an opportunity to ask questions, then a final bow-out is performed to conclude the session.
Your safety is paramount! All movements and drills are done in the safest manner possible, at your own pace and ability. Depending on subject matter, classes can be extremely cardio intensive, so be sure to have a change of clothes and always bring a bottle of water.
All equipment is provided for the class, except mouth guards. Students are welcome to bring their own instructor approved punching/finger gloves.
It's our goal for you to enhance your physical health and abilities through the challenges of physical exercises used in class, which are a necessity in any self-defense situation. Through examining your own movements for self-improvement, you will gain a heightened level of mental focus that will lead to a greater internal confidence from the new skills you acquire from progressively more challenging drills. With this investment, you will have a new perspective on problem-solving by applying core JKD principles and by exploring the fusion of philosophy and movement, allowing you to live a fuller life to take on any challenge.
