1) Fitness & Weight Loss. You cannot engage in Jeet Kune Do without improving your fitness. There is a growing trend in childhood obesity as more children spend their time with Ipads and Netflix than climbing trees and running around outside. Whether they are a natural athlete or not, every Jeet Kune Do class is constantly in motion, practicing striking and pad drills, body mechanics and stick techniques, or grappling.
Jeet Kune Do has something to offer every child, whether they are outgoing or shy, athletic or awkward, confident or frightened. Despite being what some would call an individual activity, Jeet Kune Do students are taught to view each other as brothers and sisters, and encourage and help each other learn their art. It’s in environments like these that children can truly flourish.
