Saturday 25th June – Judo Meets JKD Seminar

June 25, 2016 @ 8:45 am - 1:00 pm

Saturday 25th June – Judo Meets JKD Seminar

This martial arts seminar unites two complimentary martial arts, namely Kano’s Judo and Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do.

Bruce Lee’s LA Chinatown Jun Fan Gung Fu School predominantly taught stand-up street-fighting.  Though Bruce was actively practising and finessing his “close range” fighting skills, he did not get a chance to pass on these teachings within his JKD schools due to his untimely passing.

Bruce Lee learnt Judo from the legendary “Gene Judo Lebell”, after meeting Gene on the set of the Green Hornet and they became good friends.  “Gene Judo Lebell” went on to quote, “Bruce loved to learn grappling, he ate it up!”  Gene quoted, that Bruce said that “Judo was one of the most tiring martial arts he ever practiced.”

This martial arts seminar bridges the gap between these two complimentary arts, so you can continue to develop your own Jeet Kune Do and develop your “close range” fighting skills.  This radical martial arts seminar will explore stand-up street-fighting striking & trapping, takedowns, throws, rolls, falls, grappling and ground work.

This amazing martial arts seminar will be held at Falcon Judo’s flagship dojo in Hatfield, which is a short 22 minute train ride from London’s Kings Cross train station and a short taxi ride making it accessible for everyone.
