The Jeet Kune Do Class at Cornell is taught as an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) format. This focus will include JKD's approach to stand-up striking, teaching a blend of boxing, kickboxing, knee and elbow strikes. The ground format will include takedowns, mixed blends of grappling using Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Erik Paulson's Combat Submission Wrestling, Filipino Kali grappling and striking from the ground. This is a blended system of martial arts that combines a modern western training approach with eastern martial arts training methods. Two person partner training and use of equipment to develop the student's strength, power and focus is stressed. The class format will emphasize the application of Jeet Kune Do in regard to Mixed Martial Arts training and competition. The class will maintain a strict regard for safety, but none the less instruct the student in the No-Nonsense approach of Modern Mixed Martial Arts. The system emphasizes footwork and agility, economy of motion, counter ability and strong practical self-defense, using a strategic approach to training and combat. This realistic, modern training approach cultivates strong physical, self-discipline, mental and emotional development in the student.
