Train in JEET KUNE DO, the father of MMA
through Authentic Lineage to BRUCE LEE!
Learn and train at Mastery Martial Arts in Jeet Kune Do, the combat philosophy created by the legendary Bruce Lee, considered "The Father of Mixed Martial Arts" by (UFC) Ultimate Fighting Championship President, Dana White.
Mastery Martial Arts philosophy is to combine the best techniques of modern, scientific sports training, reality-based martial arts, yet keeping a traditional atmosphere of discipline and respect. Because of this more complete foundation, our students are able to achieve their highest fitness, self-defense and personal goals.
A message from Master Zamora, Director and Owner of Mastery Martial Arts Academies:
To me, as has been expressed by my teachers, Jeet Kune Do is about simplicity, economy of motion, range and circumstance. In Jeet Kune Do, the physical mirrors the philosophical.
What you will learn in our schools is the original Jeet Kune Do as was taught to my teachers from Bruce Lee
, as was taught to me.
Jeet Kune Do is comprised of three primary arts: modified Wing Chun Kung-Fu, Western Boxing and Western Fencing. Bruce Lee
felt its was important to experience other arts, not to accumulate techniques but to understand their essence and effectiveness at different ranges of combat. In this sense it is n
ot the style or technique that is important but the simplicity and effectiveness during combat that counts. Bruce Lee
also researched many other martial arts and adopted many of the most effective techniques from such known styles as Muay Thai, Savate, Wrestling, Judo and Jiu-Jitsu. Our chief aim is to expose the individual to the original training methods that Bruce Lee personally used and taught to my teachers.
This program is based on the concept that a self-defense system should be adaptable to any circumstances and environment. It is important to know all of the ranges of combat - not just how to kick and punch. This is not for the reasons of MMA Sport Fighting, but for the reasons of street survival.
Jeet Kune Do is designed to teach all ranges of combat. We begin by teaching stand-up, extended range fighting techniques and gradually close the gap into elbows, knees, trapping and grappling range. Extended range is taught first to ensure body awareness and control through the use of shadow boxing, pad drills and partner drills before breaching into close range which requires more precision and control.
Many people join our schools because they want to train as seriously as an MMA fighter,
but have no real interest to compete. Many are professionals who can't come to work with black eyes or severe injuries. Our program is very safe and our schools offer a family atmosphere with Jeet Kune Do classes for children too. Jeet Kune Do is not a sport. It's Bruce Lee's
combat philosophy that was created for reality self-defense. It is a complete Fitness, Self-Defense and Personal Development system that was created by the biggest martial arts icon of our time, Bruce Lee!
Our Jeet Kune Do program and all of our other programs are led and directed by Master Pablo J. Zamora who has a total of 36 years in the martial arts. After 26 years of rigorous training, teaching and competing, Master Zamora discovered that the "Traditional Systems" he learned as a youngster wasn't very effective for self-defense... or physical conditioning.
There was too much memorization... too much potential for injury. Too much focus on sport an tournament competition and not enough on reality self-defense and fitness.
Jeet Kune Do is the answer to many of the problems intrinsic to "Traditional Martial Arts" and "Sport Martial Arts." It is reality training at it's best. With Master Zamora's 10 years of Jeet Kune Do training under authentic lineage to Bruce Lee
makes Mastery Martial Arts the place to train, learn and grow!
