Jeet Kune Do


Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is the martial art founded by Bruce Lee. JKD is designed to teach you a personalized self-defense (or offense, as the case may be) method that is based on efficiently terminating a physical confrontation. Emphasis is placed on training in all ranges (kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling) and learning how to flow from one range to another as the situation dictates. It is the perfect complement to the sports based martial arts training we offer here at the academy.

Underdog Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is home to the only authentic Jeet Kune Do program in the Hartford area. Our JKD program comes directly from one of the highest authorities in the art, Sifu Richard Bustillo of the IMB Academy in Torrence, Ca. As an original Bruce Lee student, Sifu Bustillo holds many titles and certifications, and is one of the foremost martial arts instructors in the world and a leading figure in the preservation of the art of JKD.

Our academy is also fortunate to be a part of the Legacy JKD organization run by Sifu Peter Ngyuen, of San Fransico Ca. Sifu Peter is one of the few people to hold JKD certifications from both Sifu Dan Inosanto and Sifu Yori Nakamura. Sifu Peter is responsible for coordinating a structured curriculum system for advancement in JKD within our academy. Our partnership with the Legacy JKD system ensures that we continue to maintain the highest standards in regards to preservation of the JKD system for our students.
