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.
"I've trained with a few martial arts instructors before and i have to say Mario is one of the best i've trained with. He clearly knows what he's talking about and has a great teaching style that is both serious and light hearted at the same time, which was exactly what i was looking for in a club. In the adult classes they aren't too strict with the traditional rules (which is a nice change) and focus more on effective techniques. Ann-Marie and the rest of the black belts also help to make sure each individual is getting as much attention as possible in each class, which really helps to accelerate your learning.I did both karate and kickboxing and recommend both - karate for the the focus on technique/self defence and kickboxing for smashing pads and fitness. Also, both my kids also love training at ICC - it's really helping with their confidence.David and the entire ICC team also do a great job of managing the club. It's been an overwhelmingly positive experience from day 1."
"I have been going to the bbj classes at ICC for almost a year. I think it was the best decision I made to join ICC. The instructors Prof. David Tong and Steven Tong are awesome with their teaching and catering for people with different abilities and for both self defence and competition. I highly recommend ICC for all sorts of reasons either for fitness reasons like myself or wanting to advance in competitions as they have produced champions."
"Great people. Family atmosphere. My first 6 months have been a great experience. Professors David and Steven have taught me alot. Looking forward to my future training."
"2018 has been my 3rd year training at ICC. It is by far the best, most welcoming gym in Australia and has a great family atmosphere that makes me look forward to training every single time. I have trained at ICC since I was 15 years old and I’ve made so many great friendships through the gym. All instructors at ICC have a profound understanding of their respected martial arts disciplines and this has been reflected in the success of the competitors on a local and international level. ICC is the gym to train at, no matter what your goal is."
"Friendly staffs and great atmosphere! Always feel welcome from ICC family! Starting my third month for my BJJ training now.Will continue progressing with my helpful instructors David & Steve! Looking forward to growing with ICC"
