The purpose of this seminar is to preserve and promote Bruce Lee's art of Jeet Kune Do which some call original Jeet Kune Do, but we call Old School JKD. We teach JKD not to confine us but to liberate us, to share with others what we have learned, and to discover our personal expression of Bruce's art.
Learn the basic structures and principles of Jeet Kune Do (JKD), the martial arts system developed by the iconic Bruce Lee, are revealed and demonstrated in this insightful seminar.
Learn step by step how to perform fundamental footwork, kicking, countering and defensive moves.
Learn many of the lesser-known tools and approaches to training that are invaluable to understanding and being able to perform Jeet Kune Do.

I'm looking forward to seeing and working with Jim and his guys again. I usually learn more that I teach. I hope Vince, Pat, Kevin and Keith can make it. With Pat, Joe and Jim and his instructors we can have a mini instructor camp while I'm there.

I have nothing to add. I just thought I'd get it to the top of the forum again.

It looks like we will have at least 9 of our WNG instructors at Jim's. Attending are:
1. Jim McCann
2. Vince Raimondi
3. Pat Cunningham
4. Pat Finley
5. Joe Singleton
6. Keith Allen
7. Steve Servillo
8. Kevin Beale
9. Keith Miller
This should be a blast. Any of you going?

Add 1 more instructor to that list.
The Black Sheep of the family will be in attendance. LOL! :D
No Shepard's Pie!

It's done, my black sheep friend! You have to know that you are not the only one in the family. Don't forget Dean, the shepherd's pie guy + a few others.

Just heard from Jeff Edwards so that makes 10 WNG instructors who will be there.

I would have loved to attend, and would have made the long car trip from MA, but I am off with my wife for our anniversary.
Do you know when you will be in the near NE states again? I was looking to going to Larry Hartsell's seminar that was scheduled near here before his unfortunate passing.
05-28-2009, 09:38 AM
We have our big camp in Oct in NJ. I miss Larry. He was a good friend.
05-28-2009, 10:01 AM
Thanks! I will try and make plans to attend and see if I can recruit my instructor or my students to come along too.
Also, do you have a place to buy your new JKD textbook? Barnes and Nobles around me does not carry it (though I could special order), and Amazon.com is sold out.

Right now it's hard to order from Inside Kung Fu as they have just been sold to another company. I guess the best bet is a special order.
