What's the Jeet Kune Do Process?

Learn how to read your opponent, intercept their attacks, control distance, break the rhythm, hit hard and fast, cut angles, and defend yourself from all ranges of combat standing and on the ground.

The JKD Process is an online Jeet Kune Do Training Program designed to teach you the entire JKD curriculum as passed down from Bruce Lee to his first and second-generation students! This online JKD program will take you through the Jeet Kune Do beginner to advanced levels with options for certification. Learn practical self-defense, earn certification, and get in shape. Membership consists of over 40 hours of lessons, applications, and training drills. You'll learn not just the techniques, but also how to generate power, improve timing, speed, coordination, balance, and the concepts to make it all work! In addition, live online classes are available weekly with an emphasis on learning the original art and combat fitness training.

The Original Art

Learn Jeet Kune Do as originally developed by Bruce Lee. In reality, there is only one Jeet Kune Do (literally Way of the Intercepting Fist). We use the term "original" to distinguish ours from others who teach other styles of martial arts and call it Jeet Kune Do. Bruce used the term Jeet Kune Do in 1967 to describe what he was doing, his personal expression of the martial arts. He developed the art until 1973 having opened and closed 3 schools in Seattle, Oakland, and finally Los Angeles. However, Jeet Kune Do is not a style in the traditional sense and meant to continually evolve within the individual experience. We teach the original art and leave it up to the students to absorb what they find useful, discard what is not, and incorporate their own methods that work for them.

Earn Certification

Earn rank and certification through our extremely detailed and easy to follow lessons! Our program consists of 8 ranks spread across over 40 hours of lessons. Students are encouraged to also study for themselves, comparing what they are learning to Bruce Lee's books and writings. Researching your own experience is part of the process. This is not a "blackbelt factory" and rank standards are high. Students are expected not only to be able to perform the movements, but also explain them as well. In the advanced ranks, sparring is also expected as "one cannot learn how to swim without getting in the water." Fighting is the same way.

Rank and Certification

The JKD Process does offer optional certification and instructorship online for those interested in earning rank or possibly teaching Jeet Kune Do in the future. However, learning Jeet Kune Do is NOT about certifications, belts, or ranks. It's about having the skill and ability to defend yourself and your loved ones. Bruce Lee did have ranks in his schools originally. However, as he evolved Jeet Kune Do, he did away with the ranking system because he believed that belts and other types of ranking were not necessary for training.

Bruce Lee felt that the driving force for growth in the martial arts should be inherent within each individual rather than the chasing of a colored belt or a piece of paper called a certification. While Bruce did eliminate ranks and certifications, our program does contain optional certification for those interested. The JKD Process rank structure consists of 8 ranks like the original format Bruce developed from beginner through instructorship. All testing is done LIVE online! Because you'll receive instant access to the entire program as soon as you sign up, you can work your way through the lessons as fast or as slow as you like. Some students have prior experience and move faster through the early lessons. Therefore, there is no required wait time between tests! Students are able to test whenever they are ready at each level. This means if you're ready to test for a higher rank, you can. Whether you desire to teach JKD or just learn the art, our program will get you there!


  • What makes this program different from other JKD online programs?

    Here's what makes us different: ✔Instructor Access- How many online instructors give out their personal cell phone for questions? We do! Here it is: 757-637-0392. ✔ We fight- We pressure test our JKD through sparring, fighting, and competing. We pass that experience onto you! ✔ Authenticity- We teach authentic or original Jeet Kune Do as Bruce Lee taught his students from 1967 to 1973. ✔ Live Classes- We combine recorded video lessons with live classes. ✔ New Courses- We're always adding new courses and lessons at no additional cost.

  • Do I need any equipment for this program?

    While having a heavy bag, hand wraps, and boxing gloves help for training, no equipment is required. Most of the drills and exercises are taught with minimal or no equipment.

  • Is it really possible to learn JKD online?

    Absolutely! Our program is extremely detailed! We cover everything including the most insignificant detail. Honestly, we probably explain too much!

  • How long does it take to become an instructor?

    Frankly, it depends on each individual's level of effort and ability. Our program is not a black belt or certification factory. Rank must be earned. All ranks are expected to be able to have a thorough understanding and ability to perform the course material.

  • How often are new lessons available?

    Once you sign up, you'll receive instant access to ALL lessons (over 40 hours of instruction)! There is no drip dropping of lessons each week. You can progress as fast or as slow as you like through the lessons.

  • Do I need a partner to train JKD?

    Having a sparring partner is absolutely essential in the advanced ranks. However, our program is specifically designed for those who don't have a training partner to work with. Most of the lessons are filmed solo without a partner so you can see how to train without a partner.

  • Does prior training count toward rank certification?

    Yes! You have the option to test whenever you're ready! There is no wait time. Your prior training counts!
