What is "Chris Kent Jeet Kune Do"?
Jeet Kune Do is now perceived as a brand of martial arts, and some people even consider it to be a ‘style.’ Over the years “Jeet Kune Do” has become a generic term that is now broad and very non-specific. Today the name implies different things to different people.
Chris Kent Jeet Kune Do (not "Chris Kent's Jeet Kune Do") refers to the martial art training process I teach, which is based upon my understanding of what I believe JKD is. The name reflects a process of my own individual development and growth over the more than four decades I've been intimately involved in the art.
The training process and curriculum is built upon what I believe a practitioner and instructor needs to know and understand regarding the physical and philosophical components of Jeet Kune Do.
I do not refer to what I teach as "Original JKD" or "JKD Concepts" because I refuse
to pigeon-hole the art of Jeet Kune Do into any of the various categories that now exist, and do not consider myself a part of any JKD "faction" or "camp."
