Jeet Kune Do's aggressive Mental training is not a mere philosophical contemplation on effervescence of life or a frozen type of mold, but an entrance into the realm of nonrelativity and it is real.

The point is to utilize the art as means to advance in the study of the way. To be on the alert means to be deadly serious, to be deadly means to be sincere to oneself, and it is sincerity that finally leads to the way.

A Struggle of any nature can never be settled satisfactorily until the absolute fact is touched-where neither opponent can affect the other. Not neutrality, not indifference, but transcendence is the thing needed.

learning gained is learning lost. Discipline in conformity with the nature -
excerpts from Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do edited by J. Little

Closing the Gap

To be a complete Jeet kune do practitioner,you have to be able to strike and kick from all angles, and with either hand ( and leg ) to take advantage of the moment. Some of the better Jeet kune do men are most unorthodox.
In striking, the momentum of the waist and legs, the motivation and the intrinsic energy must also be added;the hands are employed only as means to put it through - Bruce Lee( Jeet kune do -edited by J. Little )

World Zendo ka Singapore

n the 1970's an Australian student of Goju Ryu Karate, developed a Free style of Karate, which contains elements of a variety of other martial arts including Muay Thai.
In 2009 Peter A. Robertson, a Freestyle Karate Black Belt, who had previously studied Shotokan,Shu Ku Kai and Goju Ryu Karate, Judo, Wing Chun, Tai Chi Chaun, Krav Maga, Capoiera, Silat, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Taekwondo, and Close Quarters Combat opened the first Zen Do Ka school in Singapore.
Not content to limit his classes to a single style, Sensei Peter combined all his training in the various Martial Arts he has studied and founded Zen Do Ka Freestyle Karate & Kickboxing which concentrates more on Muay Thai and Kung Fu Techniques.

The Japanese word Zen means "meditation" Do means path, Ka is the spirit on the path.
A Zendoka is a spirit on the path of enlightenment. Many travel, some finish. The question is "does such destination exist, or is the path the destination?"

In 2010 he was appointed by The World Karate & Kickboxing Council, (WKC) as President for Singapore and later that year as President of the World Kickboxing Federation Singapore.
ZDK Elite Kickboxing is a fantastic cardio/fitness workout for both men and women. It is taught in a safe and effective way and is aimed at producing well toned atheletes capable of competing in Kickboxing Tournaments and also those who just want to get Fighting Fit and stay that way without competing or sparring. ZDK Kickboxing is a stand alone fighting art but an integral part of the ZDK MMA Karate syllabus. Kickboxers who cross over to Karate classes enjoy a rapid rise through the belt ranks with their prior learning.

Survival Solutions

Can You Defend Yourself on the Streets ?

Everyone in the martial arts community likes the feeling of walking the mean streets , confident that he will be able to defend himself when the need arise. However that kind of feeling can be dangerous when you found out on the streets that you’re wrong. Always keep in mind that it didn’t take 10 or more years for the crack head on the street who will assault you. The muggers just did his fighting techniques the practical way, by mugging and assaulting experience.

Realistic experience is the key to realistic self defense techniques. Realistic self defense comes from spontaneous reactions, based on solid foundations of the basic human kinetics principle.

One good concept for realistic self defense is the principle of non resistance, and the integration of a counter attack as your defense. When an attacker executes a strike whether a kick/punch/grab , you don’t block. You just move away from the line of attack and strike back at the same time. Facts should rule all self defense or fighting tactics. To be able to strike with power is to strike with explosion of the hip rotation, incorporation of body weight to the strike and the acceleration of the strike whether it is a kick or a punch.

Two most important part of realistic self defense training is timing and distancing. Practical training will teach you when to attack and how to close the striking distance. Distancing is affected by intention. Self defense techniques and strategies you need to developed are the punching, kicking range, close quarter, grappling, and various street weapons range.
Possible weapons you will encounter on the streets are bladed weapon , broken bottle glass, base ball bat, improvised knife , and many more .

No self defense techniques will work unless you did them right and experience them first hand. Those who say that the best kick in a street fight is a side kick to the groin or knee, should practice side kicks to knee or groin of a simulation target. The only way to learn if you’re doing it right is to practice with an unwilling partner, who would resist you. So I suggest you select a partner at your gym that you hate most and also hate you. For you to have a realistic experience as much as  possible. In realistic self defense the human body is your weapon and the body of the attacker is the opening and the target. Realism says there is no such thing as creating an opening for you to strike. In that sense , everything is your target – the attacker’s heel, elbow, head, neck, wrist, and others
