The art draws on the idea of centreline control where punches are executed with vertical fists with trapping and forward pressure. The fundamental concept of JKD is to intercept the opponent’s hand or leg before it reaches it’s intended target, when it is relatively weak. The training is geared towards using simple techniques to focus the power of the entire body into a single point for release. At TMA you will learn a core foundation of techniques that serve as powerful attacking and defensive methods.
