JKD Concepts is not a style, but rather a philosophical approach to developing a personal expression of fighting. Evolved from Bruce Lee’s martial art of Jeet Kune Do, it utilises Kickboxing, Trapping, Grappling and Weapons to create a well rounded martial artist. Just as Lee researched different fighting arts to develop his method, we train in not only JKD principles but also the Filipino Martial Arts, Muay Thai, submission wrestling and BJJ. Emphasis is placed on an individuals attributes and functional working knowledge of the techniques. Our weapons training can improve cognitive brain function and develop bi manual coordination and faster reflexes. Stick and knife skill can be a great equalizer against not only armed attackers but size and strength or against multiple attackers.
Anyone of any age who believes they can benefit from self-defense techniques against knives, machetes and other more improvised weapons will gain from this highly specialized ICC program.
Like all ICC styles and skills, weapons training will get you fit, and assists in building confidence and self-discipline. As a weapons-based art it will also improve bi-manual coordination, timing and cognitive function.
"Dave is a skilled, and super friendly instructor. He runs an awesome program at ICC. You'll be safe, and happy to train here. Highly recommended!"
"Our oldest son Patrick has been training BJJ under Mario for 2 years and our middle boy Jack has just started Karate Jitsu. I cannot speak highly enough of him, the difference he has made in their lives is enormous. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to get their kids into martial arts."
"A place that is welcoming and warm. My child loved it from day 1. Professional warm instructor's. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism."
"The instructors at ICC are competent, friendly and professional but that’s not entirely why I chose to join and bring my 3 kids (2 girls and a boy) along. There are plenty of martial arts gyms with disciplined instructors but very few with the right culture and family oriented approach that make it easy for a parent to entrust their children with ICC in teaching them such an important life skill. For an old man like me and for any anyone else for that matter, the senior students have gone out of their way to pass on their skills without any condescending ego, it’s part of their journey to learn and to give back. I feel like the ICC philosophy rings true in that everyone is welcomed at ICC irrespective of their background and/or athletic ability. One final stand out for me is the large membership of girls and women in the club. As a father of 2 teenager daughters and a Girls Development Officer at a local football club it's very important for me to see the right culture is established to encourage female participation. Highly recommended."
"Amazing culture and wonderful, experienced instructors. You can't come here and not get better!"
