Jeet Kune Do (JKD) Concepts (famous art of Bruce Lee)

Jeet Kune Do

In this style, we focus on Bruce Lee’s concepts, his techniques, methods for fighting and approach to training. The advantage to using this style as opposed to other systems of martial arts is its totally adaptable to different student types and different situations.

These training methods are used to help students prepare for any situation and since violent attacks do not always happen in desirable conditions, such as outside, parties, parking lots, etc., it is a very effective and practical art for everyone.

The training is broken up into three areas.

  1. Area One – Kickboxing is learned in this phase of training. The repetition and drills create a good foundation in which to build other skill sets. This class develops the basic skills necessary for a person to survive on the streets (How to properly kick and punch and also how to defend kicks, punches and common grabs.).
  2. Area Two – In the second phase of training, standing grappling and ground control / attacks are learned. Once students have learned how to control a fight in striking range, it becomes necessary for them to become skilled and know what to do if the situation progresses to a closer distance. The students are also introduced to supervised sparring if desired. Students are encouraged to try to bridge the distance from kicking / punching and enter into standing grappling or go all the way to the ground. When they leave this phase, they will understand how and when to close the distance, takedown, and submit their opponent while on the ground.
  3. Area Three – The final area of training concentrates on trapping range (the brief section that occurs between kicking and punching range and standing grappling). This is perhaps the most difficult phase to learn. Timing and coordination are finely tuned in this section. Sparring tremendously helps in this process and makes the student incorporate all four areas (kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling).

My son Dominic trains at your academy in Jiu Jitsu. Many of you have met him. There are no words to describe our experience and to thank the trainers AND trainees. Dom and his middle brother both have been diagnosed with intellectual disabilities along with severe speech impairments. EVERYONE is so respectful and accepting of our son, our family. It means the world to us. I blog regularly, and wanted to share my post with you you all have change my son's world....our world. Thank you for focusing on his abilities, rather than his disabilities.

IMAA is the best in the STATE! Best instructors & students. I enjoy seeing everyone helping each other; young, old, newbie, seasoned, it doesn't matter. I credit Sensei Mark for the positive role model he is as to what makes IMAA such a great academy.

Integrated Martial Arts is hands down the best academy around! I looked for over a year for a good martial arts school, and the moment I walked in this academy I knew it was the right one. Sensei Mark is an awesome teacher and explains everything you learn thoroughly. If you want to learn in a friendly, positive environment, and learn how to defend yourself in realistic situation, no questions asked this is definitely the academy to be at!!!

I cannot even express how awesome this school is! As a single mom I have already begun feeling safer at night and coming out of the mall, since starting jiu jitsu and kickboxing at this school. Nevermind the fitness benefits!!
