For JKD Seekers in India...

In India, there are a lot of quack martial art instructors who are currently opening up JKD classes and certifying people in JKD! They hold World JKD championships where 10 year old children become JKD champions. In these ‘full contact’ tournaments, you cannot do anything beyond kicking and straight punching from the waist aimed only to the body! None of the original Lee students have seminared here as in India martial arts comes very cheap - 4 $ a month and no one will pay 100 $ for a seminar. The whole concept of martial arts seminar or workshop does not exist.


We are contemplating a move to increase awareness of JKD. We decided to hold workshops where principles of JKD are imparted. We plan to go by our own name ‘JKD Ideology’ to avoid any resemblance to existing JKD diversifications and stay clear of controversies prevailing in the JKD world.


During the program, emphasis will be laid on the fact that we teach JKD Ideology PRINCIPLES and  JKD here will denote ones own way in Range combat and application of commonsense principles toward the same. JKD Ideology will not bear any connection to existing Junfan JKD or JKDC or OJKD.


Once again this will be a commercially non viable venture, as lots of time will be expended on every student.


There are many in this part of the world curious to know about JKD. There are also many who are boldly capitalizing on the popularity of JKD. There is a widespread tarnishing of this sacred art of no style.


WeI really wish to contribute to spreading the concepts while hacking away the myths & false notions. We also wish that JKD seekers in India should be able to train in Advanced JKD abroad & overseas anywhere with the basic knowledge they gather here with us.  




1.     To educate seekers about JKD.

2.     To promote JKD as a principle based art & not a new style.

3.     To teach comfort & flow in all Ranges.

4.     To perfect a few weapons in each range and teach effective application.

5.     To help an individual to specialize in one range while learning all ranges.

6.     To teach Fighting & not patternized art, to give experience not technique

7.     To encourage the affording to travel abroad and learn under Lees original students.




Lee once stated that JKD is not a new style having any distinct form, but meant to free his followers from styles or fixed patterns. According to Lee, 'The truth is outside of all fixed systems"

Today we have two types of Jeet Kune Do practitioners, Original JKD practitioners and JKD Concepts ( principles & Concept ) practitioners. The original practitioners focus more upon the original techniques as advocated by Lee when he was alive, whereas the JKD Concepts practitioners focus more on the concepts advocated by Lee.

However, it is to be noted that JKD is a principle based art, with a small number of standard techniques and some cardinal concepts all used towards a formless art, which is ever evolving and unique to every individual.

Thus my JKD is not yours. And your JKD is not mine. However the Principles which dictate your JKD and my JKD are the same. Then, how does one find his JKD?

Lee outlined this Journey as follows

1. Research various Martial Arts (All ranges)

2. Absorb what is Useful.

3. Reject the Limitations.

4. Develop something Uniquely your own.

We are committed to propagating these above principles. We do so by means of our JKD Ideology.

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.
