What You Will Learn
During training at AJKDS, each fighter is exposed to many different martial arts and training methods. Each style is unique, and was developed under different environmental and cultural parameters. Fighters are encouraged to develop those styles that naturally fit their body type, personality, and life experience. it is important for participants to have an open mind so that they can appreciate what each cultural art has to offer. Each style is valid in it’s own right. Each art gives a different piece of the puzzle, This approach to practice comes from the Jeet Kune Do philosophy.
The Academy concentrates on training each fighter to be a free thinking and creative individual, not just a carbon copy of someone else’s style. Rather than copy a Grand Master’s every move, fighters at AJKDS absorb a diverse spectrum of styles. Styles dictate the way the body moves physically when in practice. The art comes from when the fighter is able to put their own individuality and personal creativity into the style. The Academy does the harder work of developing genuine martial artists.
Some things to know:
- We have no uniforms. Uniforms are unpractical in the modern world. Really, when was the last time you left your house in a bath robe with no shoes on?
- We have no ranking/belt system. Belts are for holding up your pants.
