What is the Hardcore Jeet Kune Do Chinese Gung Fu Association?
The Hardcore Jeet Kune Do Chinese Gung Fu Association is an organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion and perpetuation of Bruce Lee’s original teaching, training and fighting methods. Thus, our slogan, "In The Shadow of The Dragon"! Our specific goal is to develop highly trained, highly skilled Instructors of Hardcore Jeet Kune Do. Therefore, this is primarily an Instructor/Instructor Trainee organization. It is also open for student and general support membership for those who aren’t interested in becoming Instructors.
What is so unique about the Hardcore Jeet Kune Do program?
The program followed by the Hardcore Jeet Kune Do Chinese Gung Fu Association was developed by Sifu Lamar M. Davis II, who has trained with original students from all three periods of Jeet Kune Do's development in the United States (Seattle, Oakland & L. A. Chinatown). Therefore our program emphasizes not only the Seattle, Oakland and L.A. Chinatown era curriculums, but also a generous portion of the wing chun gung fu training that gave Jeet Kune Do such a strong foundation. In other words, a "total" approach to training in Jeet Kune Do. Also, the emphasis is more on physical attribute development and practical self defense. In other words, we consider ourselves a more "combative" organization!
Who is eligible for membership?
Anyone who has a serious interest in learning Jeet Kune Do is eligible to apply for membership.

Your dedication to the goals of this organization is expected, and there are no exceptions to the rule! If you think you have what it takes, then we want YOU!
What if you don't want to be an Instructor?
You simply join as a Student Member or a Support Member!
What if you are already an Instructor under someone else's program? Can you still join?
No, unless you are willing to make some serious changes! This organization has a definite progression to the training. Once you are accepted as a member, you will be expected to follow this progression and learn the material as taught by Sifu Lamar M. Davis II. Often someone who has trained under someone else is not willing to make the necessary changes in their personal training program or teaching curriculum!
