This is the regular day to day training of JKD concepts, this is the training that develops capacity in any area of the curriculum. These classes are open to all levels of student from beginner to full instructor unless otherwise posted.
These classes will often involve continuous motion drills, isolated sparring and as the group becomes ready, varied intensity sparring. Come to these classes to see what is unique about training in Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts. These are the classes that prepare you to fight, in sport and street environments and they are tailored to those attending. These classes often begin with the instructor asking the class, ‘what do you want to work on today?’

These sessions are dedicated to the instruction of the core material taught in the JKD and FMA classes at the academy. This is the basics, the moves, the terms and the essentials, it is taught in a testable format so that people who want to know, what they know, engage in a testing and find out.
This program is offered in response to the very large community of martial artists who are interested in knowing all of the academic details of what is taught at the academy, and also to ensure that the academy records accurately, the progression of our JKD journey. Curriculum classes and testing are not prerequisite for the training of JKD concepts and philosophy but rather, are offered in support of that pursuit. Those wishing to become instructors of this art as it is taught at the academy will want to learn the curriculum material as the form, terms and distinctions are essential to effective teaching.

This is class is dedicated to self-defense, preparation. Through the years, we have accumulated the knowledge of many teachers with on street experience fighting. From professional security applications, to simply finding yourself in the wrong place at a terrible time, this class explores the realities of violence and violence avoidance.
While this class will often look at the most brutal self-defense techniques, we very often utilize discussion and role play to prepare our students with skills in non-violent communication, conflict avoidance and resolution, reading and displaying body language and ‘setting up, ‘defensive strategies for potential impending violence.
Once a month this time slot is used for Self Preservation 101, a very popular seminar on self-defense and conflict avoidance for beginners. Our classes are underpinned with studies that give us a relatively clear understanding of the mentalities behind violent aggressors. We look at how violent offenders choose their victims, and why they might choose to overlook others.
SP101 is supported by PDPT attendance, which is offered at a reduced rate for 1 month to alumni of the SP101 seminars. PDPT also makes a great refresher for past self-defense students looking to keep their skills of last resort, sharp.
