Jun Fan Gung Fu is the foundation upon which all our training is based. It is the curriculum that martial arts pioneer Bruce Lee taught his students in the 1960’s, and served as the root for the development of Jeet Kune Do. Jun Fan Gung Fu is divided into three subsections: Kickboxing, Trapping, and Grappling.
The Kickboxing subset includes elements of the striking methods of Western Boxing, and the kicking skills of Northern Chinese Gung Fu systems, coupled with the footwork of Western Fencing.
Jun Fan Trapping draws heavily from Wing Chun (a Southern Chinese style famous for its close range rapid hand strikes and limb immobilizations) with those skills transposed onto more of a Boxing structure.
The Grappling subset of Jun Fan Gung Fu is taken mostly from Japanese Judo and Jujitsu (“Judo” Gene Labelle and Professor Wally Jay are the source for much of Bruce Lee’s exposure to grappling techniques), these styles are then integrated with the joint locks of Chinese Chin Na.
*Jun Fan is actually Bruce Lee’s Chinese name and thus Jun Fan Gung Fu literally translates as “Bruce Lee’s Martial Art”.
