Bruce Lee named the cutting edge martial art training process he developed "Jeet Kune Do". This training process forms the foundation of what we teach at NY Martial Arts Academy.
The technical aspect of the classes includes elements from muay thai, boxing, jiujitsu and kickboxing. Elbows and knees are prevalent in muay thai but are also a part of Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee studied boxing and fencing when developing his art. We borrow certain elements from jiujitsu when addressing self defense situations on the ground.
Childrens Martial Arts classes are focused on teaching:
Our individualized "Strength & Conditioning" program initially focuses on general physical fitness and, in time, our students are introduced to martial art specific physical training, which will enhance those attributes necessary for our students to perform Jeet Kune Do at a much higher level.
