JKD Seminar

What information will be covered in a JKD Seminar?
In our JKD Seminar, we teach you how Bruce Lee actually fought!

We start with proper body alignment and stance, called the baijong, show you the basic footwork, and combine it with the physiological punches and kicks you’ve seen Lee throw on film. What we teach is Lee’s own personal expression of JKD in real combat situations, not necessarily what he used for movies. We also discuss Lee’s philosophies and intimate thoughts as learned from his personal manuscripts. Occasionally, we will share secrets, like the dynamics of the famous one inch punch or commitment sidekick!

How will I feel about the information I learned?
Because the information we share is only known to the few true JKD practitioners, you will feel like you’ve stumbled on a gold mine.  You will understand more clearly than ever before how Bruce Lee was so quick and powerful, and what made him more spectacular than any martial artist you’ve ever seen.   No matter how much training you’ve had in marital arts, you will feel like you have discovered new revelation that will no doubt take your abilities to the next level!

Will I just watch or actually participate?
Everyone is registered to participate.  The instructors will demonstrate the proper movements and techniques, then walk around and give hands on instruction as you practice with your partner.  You will actively work on all the techniques during the Seminar: footwork, punching, kicking, and moving to get a feel for the correct alignment.

How many participants are there in a Seminar?
A JKD Seminar will consist of 20-40 participants.  We keep quantity of people low in order to deliver a high quality of hands on instruction, the way Bruce Lee would want.  Every Seminar is different, and the actual participant number will depend on the host, facility, and how many people register.

How long will the Seminar last?
The typical JKD Seminar takes about 10 hours and is usually split into two days of 5 hour classes.  If you are interested in holding a seminar and prefer a different format, contact us for scheduling that meets your needs.

Will there be any breaks?
For the typical 5 hour session, there is a 15-30 minute break scheduled in.  Because the training format is informal, participants are free to excuse themselves or move around at any time during the Seminar.

Should I bring anything?
You will partner with someone to work on punches and kicks.  For this training you will need one pair of focus pads per couple. We also recommend you bring a lunch or snack.  Because you will be involved in physical activity, it is usually beneficial to bring a healthy snack, water, or sports drink to have during the break and throughout the Seminar.  If you sweat easily or heavily, it might be a good idea to bring a towel.  Because of the philosophy and intricate details that are revealed, some people bring notebooks to take notes for review and study at later dates.  Photo cameras are allowed!

Anything I should not bring?
Under NO circumstances should you bring any weapons into the Seminar, whether they are real, props, or training gear.  We do not use any martial arts weapons in JKD Seminars.  It would also be wise not to bring any valuables (watches, rings, earrings) to prevent loss or theft of property.  We will ask you to remove any jewelry at the beginning of the Seminar, so no one gets injured while practicing with their partner.  NO video cameras are allowed.

What should I wear to a Seminar?
Something comfortable!  It’s best to wear athletic clothing that you can move and feel comfortable in. T-shirt, athletic shorts, sweat/wind pants, running or martial arts shoes are typical.  JKD is a non-traditional art, so we do not wear gi’s or have belts.  We ask that you be respectful of others and not wear anything that could be considered inappropriate or distract other participants attention.

Is there an age limit to participate?
15 years and older.

Do I need to be in good shape or have any previous training?
No.  It does not matter what physical shape you are in or what training, if any, you have had before. Because JKD is so different than any other martial art, everyone learning it for the first time is starting at the same level.  Previous training in other arts will definitely be helpful for understanding the basics. If you’ve had no training, it can be beneficial because you don’t have to unlearn any set patterns from other systems.

Will I receive a certificate for my participation?
Yes!  At the end of each JKD Seminar, we award every participant an official JKD Seminar certificate. This means you have completed a true JFJKD Seminar and have begun your future in the pure art of JKD.  The certificate DOES NOT mean that you are an instructor or certified to teach Jeet Kune Do.

How do I pre-register for a Seminar?
It depends on the Seminar host.  Every Seminar is different; therefore the registration process will be different for each one.  You may contact us or your Seminar host for more in depth information on the registration process.

Where will my seminar be held?
It depends on the Seminar host.  Typical locations for Seminars include gyms, conference rooms, churches, and professional training facilities.  Contact us for more information on a facility for your Seminar.

What are the dates available for a Seminar?
JKD Instructors tour worldwide the entire year.  If you are interested in hosting a Seminar, contact us today for dates we still have open.  If you are interested in attending a JKD Seminar, contact us to see if we are holding a public Seminar in your area in the upcoming months.

How do I become a Seminar Host?
ANYONE can be a host of a JKD Seminar.  We will be happy to work together with you to help you host one of our Seminars.  Contact us for details on how we can guide you in holding a Seminar for your group.

How much will it cost to host or participate in a Seminar?
It varies.  Because each Seminar has a different host or sponsor, cost and payment options vary.  Each Seminar is customized to fit the needs of the host, which changes the expenses and cost of the Seminar. For information on pricing, contact us today!
