JKD Trapping Seminar – Saturday 24th November 2018
This is the FIRST EVER JKD Trapping Seminar with JKD London to celebrate Bruce Lee’s birthday.
Bruce Lee started his martial journey in Western Boxing, becoming High School Champion after defeating an Englishman in 1958, St. Francis Xavier College, Hong Kong.
Following a spout of street brawls, Lee was swiftly introduced to Wing Chun to help him ward off street gang brawlers at the age of 16 in 1957. Here he trained with Wong Shun Leung under Ip Man’s tutelage.
Two years later at the age of 18, Lee got into a major fight with a Triad gangster, and his father sent Bruce to major in Drama (not Philosophy) at Washington University, Seattle, where he started to teach his version of Wing Chun which he called the Lee Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute, i.e. Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu.
Lee dropped out of college in the spring of 1964 and moved to Oakland to live with James Yimm Lee. James Lee was twenty years senior to Bruce Lee and a well known Chinese martial artist in the area. Together, they founded the second Jun Fan martial art studio in Oakland. It was here the famed controversial fight between Wong Jack Man and Bruce Lee happened. Apparently Lee ‘felt winded’ after the fight, and changed the way he perceived street fighting forever. This was the birth of Bruce’s liberation from the classical systems, methods and styles, and his process of studying ‘what worked’ in the martial arts started by Lee modelling excellence from highly qualified martial arts masters so he could ‘be the best he could be’. The martial philosophy and motion which came out at the end of that process up until Bruce’s untimely passing, became known as Jeet Kune Do.
This rare seminar will help you understand Bruce’s Journey from Wing Chun to Jeet Kune Do from a trapping perspective, to help unite people practising these arts as two sides of an indivisible coin.
