Jeet Kune Do was born of Bruce Lee, the martial art superstar who famously referred to it as the “style without style”.   Jeet Kune Do literally means  “the way of the intercepting fist”, and many would assert that it’s not so much a martial art but a combat philosophy that incorporates traits and characteristics from many other fighting styles, most notably Wing Chun, Western boxing and fencing.

In JKD practitioners are encouraged to interpret techniques for themselves and to change them if necessary,  giving the student freedom to experiment fighting throughout Jeet Kune Do’s three fighting ranges, which are:

1.  Long range

2.  Medium range

3.  Close range

Jeet Kune Do emphasizes the practice of understanding the tools that can be applied in these three fighting ranges.   Long range is known as the fighting measure and is the preferred position to maintain when not attacking.  Here the idea is to remain safe while testing the opponents reactions by feinting attacks.

In medium range kicks, punches, trapping and grappling movements come into play, with JKD encouraging the interception and countering of an opponents attack.

Head butts, elbows, knees, chokes, strangles and use of other serious body weapons are trained for close range.
