Jeet Kune Do is a non-classical martial arts method of self-defense and our core training program.
Through years of research and street testing, the late Bruce Lee developed JKD with the use of scientific methods and philosophy. It is a practical marital art composed of kicking, hand strikes, trapping, grappling and energy/sensitivity.
Focus is on simplicity and directness. This is not a quick fix self-defense program but training on in-depth method theory and application of the science of fighting.
Students who attend our classes to fine tune their skills, reflect on their results and seek to surpass their limitations.

Damaibushi Martial Arts LLC is providing traditional training in Okinawa Shorin Ryu Matsumura Kenpo Karate.
The emphasis is not on sport karate, and it is not a MMA class. This is a martial art that is very complex and involved and by design must be learned slowly over a long period of time. This is as old school training as you can get. It is an art that can, and should be, practiced for life.
Those interested in traditional Kenpo will be happily surprised by Sensi Fred Ettish instruction.
What it Means to Become a Martial Artist
Truth be told, not many people become martial artists. Out of all the people who come to learn self-defense only about 3% continue training as martial artists. There has to be something special about you that makes you want to learn more, and keep learning.
As a martial artists, you learn how training of the mind, body and spirit is integrated into everyday living. That every day instances can become a learning experience.
Being a martial artist is a journey inwards and outwards. You will learn more about yourself and limitation than become determined to push your boundaries, get better, get stronger, get faster. You begin to reflect on yourself and make more deliberate, everyday choices towards self-improvement.
You gain a family that you learn from and share a growing experience with. Over time you will see the hobbyist that comes and goes while the true martial artist commits to years of training. In return, they begin to help their fellow comrades to follow the path of personal and physical growth.
It's an experience that's hard to describe and usually answered with "it's a martial artist thing". It's something you don't get until you live it. You won't know if it's your thing until you try.
Come to class to learn a skill and if you keep your mind open, over time you may find yourself on the path of a martial artist.
