Certifying in Defensive Tactics and grading 4th Deg Blackbelt in Unarmed Combat,  the duo trained about 15,000 personnel from various forces over ten years and eventually received official appreciation from the Indian Army Chief for their research and work in modernization of Close Quarter battle and (unarmed) combat. This is the highest level of appreciation conferred by the forces. They also received the appreciation from the Director General of Police for their work in Counter - Terrorism training.
In 2004 Dr Rao was graded 6th Deg BlackBelt by O Sensei Major Philip Porter (Retd, US Air Force ) and conferred Founder status of the Military combat art of ACCS (Advanced Commando Combat System), born out of Dr, Raos innovations in Unarmed combat and JKD principles.

Iron Dragon Richard Bustillo

Lessons in Chi Sao from IRON DRAGON

Dr Raos JKD journey began with gaining expertise in various ranges - He has trained extensively in Boxing (Madhu Naik, National Champion & renowned Coach of 1970s), Karate (JKA India Shotokan - 1973), Taekwondo (Jugnu Nanda) , Judo, Wrestling, Wing Chun & FMA (from Martial Art Colleagues Like Arif Shaikh & others).
With extensive training in Unarmed Combat, Dr Rao experimented with various combatives from various ranges of Kicking, punching, Knee-Elbow range, Grappling & Groundwork ranges.
Dr. Rao trained as a private student for some years under Prof. Dr. Hohlle. Germany. Prof. Hohlle has trained with many original students. Dr Rao has cross trained with many eminent teachers  and instructors. Dr Rao certified as a Full Instructor in Jeet Kune Do in 2004.
Dr Seema Rao has also trained in various ranges over her 20 year journey. She has been primarily Prof. Dr Raos student. She has trained extensively in Boxing under Vikram Paudwal, national champion & renowned coach. She also trained in American collegiate wrestling under Bob Becker, a US University champion. She taught taekwondo for a couple of years. She has extensive training & teaching experience in Unarmed Combat to the Indian forces & Police since 1995.  In 2005, the World Jeet Kune Do Federaton USA, awarded Full Instructorship to Dr. Seema Rao.    
Together the Raos have taken the JKD Ideology & principles to personnel from Indian Forces & Police via their various courses on Unarmed Combat & Close Quarter Battle for Counter Terrorism Operations. They worked for ten years, propogating these JKD ideology without monetary compensation and trained 15,000 soldiers. 
Prof. Dr Rao & Dr Seema Rao derive the greatest JKD inspiration from their Teacher, Sifu Richard Bustillo, IMB Academy USA who is the chief guiding factor in Dr Raos JKD journey. The Dr. Rao couple owe their deep understanding of JKD in technique & philosophy to Sifu Bustillo.
Sifu Richard Bustillo was one of Bruce Lees foremost & original students. After Bruce Lees death, along with Dan Inosanto, he started the Filipino Kali Academy, the first Academy in the world to teach JKD . The IMB Academy resulted from shiting & expansion of the Filipino Kali Academy.
Besides authorizing Dr. Rao to teach Jeet Kune Do in India & Asia, Sifu Richard Bustillo is a friend, philosopher & guide in Dr Raos life & martial arts journey.

Also, It is to be noted that in JKD, the Path is more important than Certification or destination. Application is more important than documentation. Practice of principle is more important than doctrine. Authority in physical arts is never based on documentation and certification but on Prowess & Mastery in Combat, both inside the Fighting Ring and outside in the Arena of Life.

Each mans Journey in the Martial arts is based on his virtues and inadequacies, his experiences and shortcomings. His Openness of mind to absorb the useful and reject the limitations. The way has to be unique for each individual and each journey. The principles used to discover oneself and his journey is called Jeet Kune Do. We only help you to find your path, and hopefully find yourself.


You may call it Jeet Kune Do. You may not. The difference rests in the boundaries you draw yourself.

Bottom Note:


The Philosophy of Jeet Kune Do Ideology, Mumbai



 The Jeet Kune Do Ideology Mumbai is inspired by fighting principles of the legendary Lee & Sun Tzus art of War.


This Jeet Kune Do ideology will help the Mumbai based martial Arts seeker and practitioner to find his destination. The destination can vary from physical prowess in the ring to combat & martial art skills to mental balance and eventually to spiritual development.


Jeet Kune Do is a journey and represents each mans search for truth both in the Martial arts and in life.  Lee has said that  via Jeet Kune Do Life opens its avenues to us.


Lee  founded Jeet Kune Do, but wished he did not have a name for it. Lee  fans and martial arts enthusiasts all over the world have elevated the word Jeet Kune Do to its present spectacular status.


The martial arts seekers and Lee fans in Mumbai can avail of these benefits from the Jeet Kune Do Ideology.


Those outside Mumbai, in and around India can also approach us for guidance in their Jeet Kune Do journey. If you are prepared to travel to Mumbai, we will help you with your martial arts evolution. 

Knowing is not enough, We must apply.
Willing is not enough, We must do.
