Ottawa Jeet Kune Do Martial Arts & Fitness is a martial arts family dedicated to the perpetuation and preservation of the art and philosophy of original Jeet Kune Do as it was taught by it’s founder, Bruce Lee to original student Sifu Jerry Poteet.
Jeet Kune Do is the martial art created by the late Bruce Lee. It is the only non-traditional form of kung fu in the world. In Jeet Kune Do, the individual is more important than the style or system. Its primary aim is the true self-expression of the individual.
While Jeet Kune Do is certainly a devastating form of combat, its goal is the expression of four key principles:
1. • Economy of motion
2. • Simplicity
3. • Longest weapon to the nearest target
4. • The elimination of passive moves, always HIT!
As a non-classical fighting art, Jeet Kune Do is based on skill, not on how many techniques, arts or forms you know.
“Jeet Kune Do favours formlessness so that it can assume all forms and since Jeet Kune Do has no style, it can fit in with all styles. As a result Jeet Kune Do utilizes all ways and is bound by none and likewise uses any technique or means which serves its end.”
