HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL GET AT AUSTIN IMPACT JEET KUNE DO
A DIRECT CONNECTION TO BRUCE LEE!
I didn’t get my certification from an online program or going to seminars.
I got it under the direct training of Sifu Chris Kent, one of the original backyard students of Dan Inosanto during Bruce Lee’s lifetime.
A COMPLETE SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM!
You’ll learn how to punch, how to kick, how to trap, and how to grapple.
Unlike MMA, though, the goal in a street fight is usually to remain standing.
So that’s where most of our emphasis will be.
AN ORGANIZED RANKING SYSTEM & STRUCTURED BEGINNER’S COURSE!
Every class is an hour long.
Afterwards, we have a 30 min Advanced class where we focus on a specific skill set each month.
After you’ve come to 25 regular classes you’re invited to stay for the Advanced training.
You’ll also be shown how to take the advanced skills that you learn in that class and integrate them into the drills we work in the regular classes, so that you’re always able to train at the level best suited to you.
You’ll never be bored because you’ll always have new skills to work on.
Also, if you want to work even more on the JKD basics, Saturday mornings at 10:30 we do a 30 min Beginners Course right before the regular class.
LOTS OF TRAINING VARIETY!
It’s not all just hitting the pads and sparring.
Jeet Kune Do is a laboratory; it’s about experience as much as it’s about technique.
You’ll practice dozens of drills that bridge the gap between hitting pads and sparring.
In every class you’ll be paired up with someone at the same level as you, and you’ll do several drills to develop specific skills.
When it comes time to spar you’ll feel comfortable and completely ready for it.
A POSITIVE INTRODUCTION INTO SPARRING!
Many people quit martial arts training because they just don’t like getting hit. They go to class stressed out or leave frustrated.
You don’t have to “go all out” and swing for the fences when you spar.
Not only is this not necessary, it can actually be counter-productive.
At Austin Impact JKD you won’t spar for your first 3-5 classes. Then sparring becomes optional.
Power is kept at a level that is fun for both students.
Control is emphasized, and you’ll be provided with headgear, shin guards, boxing gloves, and of course you’ll be wearing a cup and mouthpiece.
We start you out with some basic controlled sparring drills before you progress to regular sparring.
Down the road, you’ll have the option of bringing in clinch fighting, takedowns, and groundfighting.
Again, the most important thing to me is that you’re safe and having fun.
Everybody works with each other to help each other get better.
A FULL FITNESS PROGRAM!
We also offer fitness classes 6 days a week, both Boot Camp and Fitness Kickboxing.
You’ll get a great workout just from doing Jeet Kune Do, but we spend 100% of the time in class training specifically in Jeet Kune Do–NOT doing conditioning drills like most martial arts schools do.
However, if your goal is to lose weight and get in shape, or you just want to supplement your training with conditioning, I recommend adding in some fitness classes.
These classes are designed to melt fat and get you into the best shape of your life.
And best of all, OUR FITNESS PROGRAM IS FREE TO YOU AS A PART OF YOUR JEET KUNE DO MEMBERSHIP!
Our fitness clients pay on average $105 for this program.
On top of that, the Fitness Kickboxing class is a great way for beginners to get their techniques down pat, since it’s all done hitting the punching bags and doing the combinations that the instructors call out.
THE TRUE SPIRIT OF MARTIAL ARTS!
Our attitude is one of camaraderie, open-mindedness, and helping each other learn and grow.
If you’re just looking for a place to fight, this is not the school for you.
We approach our martial arts training in an attitude of mutual respect, and all egos are left at the front door.
Since you’ll be working with a partner, you’ll be acting as their coach and they’ll be acting as yours. The better you help them train, the better they’ll help you.
Many of the students here have become best friends outside of the gym. And ALL of them enjoy working with each other.
We foster the true spirit of martial arts through the way that we train, as well as through get-togethers like our Martial Arts In The Park events, BBQ’s, and socializing on a very active private JKD Facebook group.
Jeet Kune Do often gets paired up with the Filipino weapons style’s of Kali and Escrima because they complement each other extremely well.
You’ll learn how to fight with and defend against sticks and knives, and how to combine these with your empty-hand Jeet Kune Do techniques.
Learning how to defend against these common weapons is an important part of self defense training.
DEFENDING AGAINST MULTIPLE ATTACKERS!
On the street there are no rules. So you never know what situation you may find yourself in.
Training becomes a lot more fun when you start training for various situations.
Instead of always training to defend against a single, unarmed attacker, with the goal of getting a knockout or a submission, you’ll get to practice defending against multiple attackers, both armed and unarmed.
These drills involve sometimes just trying to escape or sometimes even having to defend against more than one person.
By constantly changing the rules you get the most realistic street self defense training available and the most exciting training experience out there.
At Austin Impact Jeet Kune Do you’ll learn everything that Bruce Lee himself taught. You’ll practice the same drills that he practiced. You’ll be training in authentic Jeet Kune Do.
The principles and techniques that Bruce Lee taught are still revolutionary today. And, because Jeet Kune Do is still relatively new, many of them are not taught by other martial arts schools.
Everybody gets into martial arts for different reasons, but in the end most people simply do it because they love the training.
I want the same for you. I want Jeet Kune Do to be something that you will want to do for the rest of your life.
Many people have said that martial arts has been the most important and empowering thing they’ve ever done.
When you come to a class, you will be amazed at how fast the time flies because you’ll feel so engaged in the learning and growth that you’ll experience.
Jeet Kune Do is often considered the original Mixed Martial Art (MMA), and though that is true, we train differently than any MMA gym.
Come in, try out a class, and see for yourself if Jeet Kune Do is the right martial art for you!
