The Jeet Kune Do Concept

Bruce Lee and his partner Dan Inosanto electrified the martial arts world in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The art created by these martial arts innovators had many roots and different influences.

As they pieced the elements together that suited them best, the art that emerged from their research was a compelling and completely new system of training. The use of boxing tools like focus mitts and speed bags, mixing trapping and grappling methods and taking the best techniques and training methods from each art they studied made this art a dynamic new system.

They sought to eliminate the strict, stylized training that was common at that time and let each student find his/her own way. Elements that would suit many types of students and allow the practitioner to defend against all types of opponents were included and developed.

The Jun Fan Martial Arts / Gung Fu and Kickboxing

Bruce Lee’s personal system, Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, is known for its economy of motion and integration of arts and ranges. Natural attributes such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength, and agility are improved by the innovative teaching and training methods developed by Bruce Lee, and preserved and taught today by his protege, student and training partner, Dan Inosanto.

JKD/Jun Fan teaches the means to effectively pursue the most direct line of attack. Once an attack has been launched there are no breaks or interruptions. As one technique nears completion, it starts to blend into the next and continues on in one flowing motion until the conflict is resolved. Our classes focus on the skills and techniques essential for a martial artist to be capable in each range of combat.

Our classes

Bruce Lee’s system focuses on ensuring the martial artist has functional techniques, tactics and training methods and the ability to continually develop within the arts. As a result, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more effective art for your personal Self Defense capabilities. Bruce Lee’s ‘attributes’ theory created a system where each person can realize their potential regardless of age, ability, size or gender.

The exact curriculum taught by Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto can be found in the Jun Fan and Phase classes.

MKG is not a gym, it is a martial arts school. You can get a work out and hit or kick a heavy bag anywhere. But if you really want to LEARN martial arts and immerse yourself in multiple art forms, then you owe it to yourself to give MKG a try. I took my first Phase/Mixed Arts class at MKG about 8 years ago and have been enrolled at the school since. I consider the students and instructors at MKG some of my dearest friends, more like a part of my extended family. The sense of community is second to none.

I have been training at MKG for 5 years now, and continue to be impressed with the quality of martial arts instruction. The instructors are awesome, your training partners are enthusiastic, and the training facilities are top notch. Plus, it's one of the few schools in the country that teaches savate. Seriously, if you want to train in martial arts, come check out MKG.

MKG is an amazing place to train, I never felt better than when I was training there. The people are incredible, and I only felt self concious for the first few days of class, after that I felt like I belonged. Everyone is easy to talk to, and the trainers are all great people. I recommend it for anyone either trying to get into shape, or learn martial arts. It's a great place to train.

I've NEVER had so much fun working out. And working out was my original intention for starting martial arts classes but I didn't know I would enjoy learning about the different types of arts they teach. I started only going to two classes a week but now do 6 classes a week.

I've moved around a lot in my life, and since I've been a life-long martial artist, this means I have trained in a lot of different schools. I've been at MKG since April of 2012, and have to say that I have never trained at a finer martial arts educational institution.

There are no egos at MKG, I sense that the instructors and advanced students place the needs of the beginning and intermediate students above their own. MKG also host some of the world's foremost instructors who teach seminars on the weekends; there is so much going on its hard to keep track of it all.

The structure of class

The JKD philosophy will be found in every class offered at the Minnesota Kali Group as it provides the guiding principles of the Minnesota Kali Group. All instructors are certified in a direct lineage to Bruce Lee. This emphasis forms the base for the teaching and training theory of the Minnesota Kali Group.

Highlights include:

  • The practical nature of the art is appealing while the depth of possibility provides potential for lifelong study.
  • Regular discussion of tactics and principles are a part of these classes.
  • An emphasis on the groin kick and eye jab makes for streamlined self-defense tactics.
  • Conceived by Bruce Lee as “scientific street fighting.” The art is simple, direct and non-classical.
