Jun Fan Kickboxing 

Jun Fan Kickboxing, also known as Jeet Kune Do Kickboxing, is a dynamic and versatile martial arts discipline that encompasses the principles of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do philosophy fused with traditional kickboxing techniques. Developed by Bruce Lee himself, Jun Fan Kickboxing emphasizes efficiency, directness, and simplicity in combat.

At its core, Jun Fan Kickboxing is characterized by its fluidity and adaptability, allowing practitioners to seamlessly transition between various striking techniques, including punches, kicks, elbows, and knees. Unlike some traditional martial arts styles, Jun Fan Kickboxing does not adhere to rigid forms or patterns, but rather encourages practitioners to explore and develop their own personal expression of combat.

One of the key principles of Jun Fan Kickboxing is interception, where practitioners aim to intercept and counter their opponent’s attacks with precise and well-timed strikes. This concept is closely tied to Bruce Lee’s famous phrase, “Using no way as way, having no limitation as limitation,” which emphasizes the importance of adapting to the ever-changing dynamics of a fight.

In addition to its emphasis on striking, Jun Fan Kickboxing also incorporates elements of trapping and grappling, allowing practitioners to seamlessly transition between different ranges of combat. This holistic approach to fighting makes Jun Fan Kickboxing effective in a variety of situations, whether it be in the ring, on the street, or in self-defense scenarios.

Overall, Jun Fan Kickboxing is not just a martial art, but a philosophy that encourages practitioners to continuously evolve and adapt their skills to become more effective fighters.

Muay Thai Boxing

Muay Thai is referred to as the science of 8 limbs, so Lethwei can be called the science of 9 limbs, due to the allowance of head butts. In comparison, Lethwei can be interpreted as being bolder and more extreme. The techniques are a bit slower and stronger than in the other Southeast Asian kickboxing forms, possibly because it has more Indian influence than the other styles. Fights are traditionally held outdoors in sandpits instead of rings, but in modern times they are now held in rings. Popular techniques in Lethwei include leg kicks, knees, elbows, head butts, raking knuckle strikes, and take downs.

Muay Thai literally Thai Boxing and also known as The Art of the Eight Limbs is the Thai name for a form of hard martial arts practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Thailand. It is known as Pradal Serey in Cambodia, Tomoi in Malaysia, Muay Lao in Laos and as a similar style called Lethwei in Myanmar. The different styles of kickboxing in Southeast Asia are analogous to the different types of Kung Fu in China or Silat in the Malay peninsula.

Muay Thai has a long history in Thailand and is the country’s national sport. Traditional Muay Thai practiced today varies slightly from the ancient art Muay Boran and uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in Western boxing. Muay Thai is referred to as “The Science of Eight Limbs”, as the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A master practitioner of Muay Thai thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight “points of contact,” as opposed to “two points” (fists) in Western boxing and “four points” (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport‐oriented forms of martial arts.

Ultimately, as a martial artist it is about getting better, continually striving to be the best that you can be. To do that you have to be under watchful eyes of those that have spent years training, honing their skills, learning different training methods, better ways to teach, investing in their craft going to seminars, doing private lessons, actually going to places like Thailand, Brazil, Holland… to learn everything they can about the art(s) they are teaching… and lastly, they are always honing their own skills and learning how to pass on and share their vast knowledge.
