MMA – Functional Jeet Kune Do Concepts

Jeet Kune Do translates as 'Way of the Intercepting Fist'. Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do Concepts is not a formalised style, rather a framework that is applied by the individual to gain martial self-expression under the core principles of Jeet Kune Do. We train for both sport MMA & the street defence. JKD in the MMA cage has worked for many fighters such as Conor McGregor  and Anderson Silva.

Our curriculum is based more on the principles of JKD Concepts rather than the historical techniques as practiced by Bruce Lee 40+ years ago. Whilst the majority of historical JKD (Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do) techniques still work, some need to be adapted to the changing landscape of martial arts in the 21st Century.

JKD Concepts is essentially MMA for the street, where there are no rules. We train as realistically as safely possible, simulating live non-compliant attacks. You will learn to operate effectively in spaces of confinement such as stairwells, restrooms, elevators, alleyways and vehicles.

At The FightLab Combat Arts, we help you:

  • Learn powerful strikes from any position
  • Maintain an awareness of your surroundings
  • Establish control throughout an altercation
  • Learn to fight both empty handed & with weapons

“Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own”

Bruce Lee

Who can benefit?

Everyone! The ability to improve your situation when you find yourself in a bad one is not just for people of a certain age, gender or fitness level. Because anyone can be targeted by an attacker, everyone deserves the ability to improve their defences. Prior experience isn’t necessary to learn real life self defence.A lot of people will not take a self defence course because they think it’s too hard or they don’t have enough experience. The following is a brief list of occupations, ages and experiences of some of our graduates:

A small sample of occupations, ages & experiences of students:

  • Stay-at-home Mums
  • Teenagers
  • Law Enforcement
  • Self-employed
  • College Students
  • Corrections Officers
  • Teachers
  • Martial Artists & Instructors
  • Kids
  • Business Owners
  • Nurses
  • Doctors

If they can do it… so can you!

  1. Reality, Pure & Simple

    FBI studies show that martial artists lose street fights 70% of the time. We will prepare you for real violence and teach you to be a winner. You will be the “un-martial artist”.

  2. The First 2 Seconds Before the Fight Happens

    If you don’t know what that means then you will lose, and losing on the street can mean anything. We will teach you to see the sucker punch or ambush attack before it happens.

  3. Knives Kill People!

    If you are learning some fancy mystical magical knife disarms and think that will work then I hope you have your organ donor form filled out already. We will teach you what to do instead. Remember, winning means your family and friends get to continue enjoying your presence on this planet.

  4. Our Stuff Works!

    No mystical martial arts voodoo here, real tactics win real violence. Not to mention our stuff is battle-tested by US Navy SEALs, Marine Corps, SWAT, CIA, FBI, and more. Our foundational system is Rapid Assault Tactics created by martial arts legend Paul Vunak for the US Navy’s SEAL Team Six.
