Professor Gary Dill has the rare honor of being one of the few original students who trained in one of Bruce Lee's three JKD schools while Bruce was still alive and heading up the JKD training program. The Oakland, California School where Dill learned JKD, was known as: "THE JKD FIGHTING SCHOOL." Dill has been teaching Jeet Kune Do for over 49 years (1971-present), and is considered by many to be a nationally known authority in JKD today. He has written numerous articles concerning JKD for "Black Belt," "Inside Kung Fu," and other martial arts magazines. He has also authored a JKD training manual, and produced a comprehensive collection of JKD home study training DVD'S.
The Jeet Kune Do Association is now offering a certification / recognition program for existing JKD instructors through the newly developed open division, JEET KUNE DO COMBATIVES. We welcome all JKD instructors with legitimate lineage.
