Our Kenpo/Kung Fu (aka “Kung Fu Unlimited”) curriculum is an extremely comprehensive program that uses Chinese Kenpo (Ch’uan fa) as it’s base for fundamentals and belt ranking structure, but also includes techniques, principles, and training methods from Ed Parker’s American Kenpo, Jeet Kune Do, Jun Fan Gung Fu, Filipino Martial Arts,various Shao-Lin martial arts, and Ninjutsu. This is not a random selection of material; rather, the curriculum has been carefully selected to enhance the student’s growth and progress. Each level builds on the previous, and each art that is introduced builds upon, and works synergistically with, each of the other’s qualities.
By the time a student reaches black belt level he/she will have an extraordinarily well rounded base from which to begin serious study. Due to the depth and scope of material we have to work with, the well known adage that black belt/sash is only the beginning of a martial artist’s training is quite literal in our system.
Kickboxing/Kali (Jun Fan Gung Fu/JKD Concepts)
Lot of Kickboxing, lot of Stick & Knife..loads of fun!
This class includes Bruce Lee’s complete original street kickboxing system (Chinese Kickboxing), modified “trapping”, joint locks, takedowns, sensitivity/energy drills, as well as stick, knife, ,empty hand, improvised weapons from Kali/Filipino Martial Arts
“Jun Fan Gung Fu” translates to “Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu” (Bruce Lee’s name in Chinese is “Lee Jun Fan”. “Gung Fu” is the Cantonese for “Kung Fu”. )
Using Bruce Lee’s original “non-traditional gung fu” as a base, this class will cover all aspects of the punching, kicking, trapping and ranges as well as FMA weaponry.
Jeet Kune Do Unlimited (JKDU).
We also offer training in Burton Richardson’s Jeet Kune Do Unlimited (JKDU).
This class covers all aspects of modern combat and may be the purest form of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do martial philosophy.
Students in this class train with progressive resistance in all ranges of combat (stand up, clinch, ground).
To quote Mr. Richardson:

FOUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF JKD UNLIMITED
1. WE TRAIN FIRST AND FOREMOST FOR STREET SELF-DEFENSE.
We train to be effective in the street environment, then make adjustments to the training for students who wish to enter sporting competitions. Not the other way around.
2. WE TRAIN WITH PROGRESSIVE RESISTANCE.
A real attacker is going to resist your effort 100%. If you want to learn how to fight, you have to practice fighting against someone who is fighting back. Progressive resistance allows everyone, regardless of experience, to do this in a safe, fun training environment.
3. WE TRAIN AS COMPLETE SELF-DEFENSE ATHLETES:
We train to be prepared for almost any situation: all the ranges (standing, clinch, ground), multiple opponents, weaponry and a variety of environments. We want each student to actually train in as many self-defense scenarios as possible so that if a student gets into a bad situation they already have experience in that particular situation.
4. HAVE FUN!
I am planning to train for the rest of my life, and I assume that my students will do the same. If we are going to spend this much time working on developing functional skills, we should be having fun doing it. If you are training for a competition, you have to grind and do a lot of very uncomfortable and painful training. If you are training for self-defense, you should work very hard at times, but it should not be a big grind. The training sessions should be so enjoyable that we look forward to each class. Our classes in Honolulu, Hawaii are held in a very relaxed but disciplined atmosphere. Lots of laughing and joking while training hard. As Bruce Lee said, “You should train seriously, but don’t seriously train.” Well said!
