new Lamar Davis school near me
I just found out that there is a new Lamar Davis Jeet Kune Do Academy near me. I honestly wasn't 100% sure if this was the right forum but I did notice they said they primarily teach Chinese Gung Fu.
I did some searching on here and came back with 'mixed results' although none of the threads were about Lamar Davis specifically.
One quote from their website (http://www.hardcorejkd.com) I find interesting is: "As usual, the main focus will be the preservation, promotion and perpetuation of the original teaching, training and fighting methods of the late Bruce Lee."
I want to clarify I absolutely think this person is legit in the sense I don't think he's a con artist or anything like that, but at least for my area of the country, 100 dollars/month is a HUGE chunk of change! And forgive me but I'm not so much asking info about this specific school (its too new) but more the training methodologies this man has offered in the past.
As always, any insight or informed opinion greatly appreciated!
Sifu Davis is Definitely legit
I would like to preface this post by saying that I have not attended 1 class at Sifu Davis' new facilities in Leeds. I did not rank the gym size b/c I have no basis to do so.
I have trained under Sifu Davis at various times in my life and It is by far the most realistic combat training you will find. His fight philosophy is total destruction of your opponent
I have tried schools in various arts from Alabama to LA and I have never encountered an instructor as passionate and dedicated to his art as Sifu Davis is, all while being an incredibly nice guy to boot.
You might be able to find a strip mall sensei in the area to "steal" $75 bucks a month from you but, I would personally opt to pay $150 (include the monthly seminar for $50 if at all possible).
I do not mean to sound like I am trying to sell this kwoon; I just want you to know that you really will not be wasting your hard earned cheddar.
Sifu does not teach grappling per se, however there are many holds and traps within JKD. He does make a lot of his own high quality training gear, something Sijo Lee used to do as well.
I will be moving back to Birmingham and training at Hardcore Jeet Kune Do in the very near future and hope to spar against you soon.
Don't bring any crappy Century sparring gear to class or you will be dead
