Jeet Kune Do
Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto researched every martial art they could. Bruce’s Jeet Kune Do system is known for its economy of motion and integration of arts. The areas practiced include Kickboxing, Trapping and Grappling.
The National sport of Thailand, Muay Thai fighters have been called the “Kings of the Ring”. They may strike any part of the body with kicks, knees, punches and elbows: an awesome offence and constant concentration on defensive Structure.
Throughout South East Asia, Silat describes a whole host of martial concepts and systems which include the use of bladed weapons, strikes, throws and joint manipulations. From Silat we concentrate on an exact understanding of leverage and body positioning.
