Jun Fan Kick Boxing
With the style Wing Chun at the core of his system, 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, Bruce Lee developed a martial arts system and fighting
strategy, Jeet Kune Do(JKD), that over time has lost none of its effectiveness.
Students are taught to move with ease and confidence through the different "ranges of combat"
from long distance "kicking range", to middle distance "hand range", to close quarter "trapping & grappling range".
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.The movements are crisp and efficient, utilizing the most direct lines and angles. As one technique nears completion, it starts to blend into the next and so forth; one continuous flowing motion until the conflict is resolved.
Students are able to enhance their natural attributes, such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength and agility, using the innovative teaching and training methods developed by Bruce Lee and preserved and taught today by his portage, student and training partner, Dan Inosanto.
Trapping can best be described as positioning one's self to immobilize an opponent's arms (not necessarily grappling). Trapping is a method of closing the gap by entering from the kicking range to either remain in hitting range or entering into grappling.
Kicking is taught as a basic foundation to build on the student's ability to function in the ranges of empty hand combat. It covers various methods of kickboxing and striking both of which are influenced by different arts such as Wing Chun, Western Boxing, Thai Boxing and Savate to name a few.
