Martial training used to be a simple choice: boxing, karate, tae kwon do, judo, jiu-jistu – and that was about it. Now you have dozens of options and styles from all over the globe – Israel, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, China, to name a few. And MMA is well-rounded and is often taught as a sport, but the real-world applications (depending on your instructor) could be limited. These options can overwhelm you, and each style claims to be the “only style that matters.” It’s nearly impossible to decide what is right for you.

But what if the choice became simple again? What if there was a lineage of martial artists that had studied all of these styles for you, and chosen the most effective techniques from each one? Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, and add what is specifically your own. This is the philosophy of Jeet Kune Do.

Williams Academy trains authentic self defense:

  • Identify ranges of attack and move seamlessly through each one.
  • Learn to use every tool: your whole body, realistic weapons, and everyday objects;
  • Mindless repetition of static forms is replaced with skill practice against a non-compliant partner that will build practical effectivess, coordination and muscle memory.

Our head instructor knows where you're coming from: he began studying tae kwon do as a child, advanced quickly and truly learned all that the art had to offer― in both traditional and Olympic styles. But he soon discovered the value that other martial arts brought to the table, and found that Jeet Kune Do reflected his own philosophy of being well prepared for any situation. Now you can benefit not only from his 30 years of training experience, but the wisdom of experts who have refined and condensed the combined knowledge of dozens of martial styles into one effective martial philosophy.

You will be taught not only the mechanics of defensive combat, but also the principles of escalation and progression. You will be given the tools to take control of a confrontation and mitigate destructive consequences when unavoidable. You can be confident that you're not wasting your time on techniques that belong in the pages of history. The Williams Academy prepares people for today's world.
