I don't know him, but if he is certified by Lamar Davis, it's real JKD. The same with Jerry Poteet depending on how much he has worked with him. Both Lamar Davis and Jerry Poteet are real JKD teachers.
You can also try:
Kwoklyn Wan - 0116-253-8668 - Mobile: 07786-234-658 urbanmartialarts.com
He's spent a lot of time with Lamar Davis and is the WNG representative in England.
Carl Lewis is our representative in Wales.

Hi i have been to the real jeet kune do run by Paul Johnson,it was very good
Paul came across very well and looked the part in what he did show me,i have trained with other instructors who did not look good at what they did
He told me that he has never been certified by Lamar Davis but if i got the chance that i should train with him.
Paul also said that i should all ways ask how much training some one has done with said instructor as some instructors will make out they have years and years of training when some times it is not much at all.
Next week i am going to train with your guy Kwoklyn Wan i will let you all know what i thought next week

On his website is says that Paul Johnson is Sifu Davis' UK representative.

It is not supposed to say that, as it is not true! Paul has definitely trained with me, but he is NOT my UK representative! Declan Lestat and Carl Freeman are my representatives in Nottingham, and are certified Instuctors under me! Kwoklyn Wan is my represenative in Leicester.

I've never trained with Paul Johnson so can't comment on his stuff, but I do know Carl Freeman and Kwoklyn Wan are outstanding instructors with a wealth of expertise and experience.

It actually says on Johnson's site that he was Sifu Davis' representative FOR A SHORT TIME. Not sure if Sifu Tackett mis-read the page or if it has been changed to be more accurate.

It also says he's Nottingham's only 2nd Generation Instructor and this is not accurate either. Sifu Richard Hudson at KickFit in Nottingham is a representative of Richard Bustillo. Sifu Hudson is also a good guy and very capable.

At the end of the day, Andy, go with who's best for you and stick with them.

Carl Freeman's contact details are on Sifu Lamar's site: http://www.hardcorejkd.com/instructors.php

Carl teaches small classes in the city and Private Lessons. I'm currently teaching Private Lessons and I'm not accepting new students at this time.

Andy, where are you in the midlands?
