What is Jeet Kune Do?

Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a hybrid martial art and philosophy developed by Bruce Lee. It is a non-classical martial art that emphasizes practicality, adaptability, and the use of a wide range of techniques from various disciplines. JKD is not a rigid system with set forms or kata, but rather a fluid approach to fighting that encourages practitioners to express themselves freely and adapt to any situation.

JKD is a practical and effective martial art that can be used for self-defence, sports competitions, or personal development. It is a philosophy that encourages practitioners to be open-minded, adaptable, and always striving to improve themselves.

JKD tries to cover all situations including kickboxing, weapons, grappling and mass attack. Fill in the contact form for more info.

Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do philosophy

The philosophy of JKD emphasizes self-awareness, self-expression, and living in the moment. Bruce Lee believed that JKD was not just a fighting system, but a way of life that could be applied to all aspects of one’s existence.

JKD has had a profound impact on the world of martial arts, and its influence can be seen in many modern MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) techniques and philosophies. JKD is a dynamic and evolving martial art that continues to inspire practitioners around the globe. Jeet Kune Do is the backbone of the Rapid Assault Tactics and we offer private training in both.

  • Adapt and overcome: JKD practitioners are constantly learning and adapting. They are not afraid to change their approach if something is not working.
  • Express yourself: JKD is about self-expression. Practitioners are encouraged to develop their own unique style of fighting.

What Martial Arts make up JKD?

Jeet Kune Do, founded by the legendary Bruce Lee, is a hybrid martial art and philosophy that emphasizes fluidity, adaptability, and practical self-defence. It draws upon various martial arts disciplines to create a unique and versatile fighting style.

Wing Chun: Considered the foundation of Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun is a Chinese martial art characterized by its close-range fighting techniques, emphasis on hand and arm movements, and focus on centerline control.


Beyond these core disciplines, Jeet Kune Do also incorporates elements from other martial arts, such as grappling techniques from Judo and Jujutsu, and weapons training from Filipino Eskrima and Kali.

This amalgamation of martial arts styles allows JKD to adapt to various fighting scenarios and develop a comprehensive approach to self-defence.
