got back from great JKD Wed Nite Group seminar
Hi, just got back from the JKD Wed Nite Group seminar in Las Vegas. Had a lot of great ex-Bruce Lee students there teaching. There was an incredible amount of information displayed at the camp, and I think this is one of the groups that is doing close to what Bruce Lee originally taught. Of course the art evolves over time and doesn't remain static, but the instructors are pretty open and honest about the different influences of the art itself and how to use the different JKD elements to put them together. There was even a guy teaching who trains pro fighters down in Florida who is one of the instructors. These guys are pretty much a non-profit JKD group and don't make much money off the stuff because they mostly all have various jobs of some kind besides martial arts. I thought it was interesting that their were a number of ATA and Krav Maga people there, since these guys seem to want to expand their martial arts horizons. It's really hard to define JKD exactly into one category because there is so much stuff contained within it. It really depends on who is teaching is and that person's particular martial arts background. Anyway, very rewarding, and the group is headed by Tim Tackett, Bob Bremer, and Jim Sewell. Well worth the effort to train with one of these guys if possible.
