Carter Hargrave has been an original Jeet Kune Do instructor for over twenty three years. Original Jeet Kune Do teachers as they are referred to teach exclusively the art of Bruce Lee the way he taught it at his famous three schools in California and Washington State. Meaning they try to teach the same moves that Bruce Lee taught at his three schools during his lifetime. In Jeet Kune Do or JKD for short, there are basically two distinct methods of teaching or curriculum.
You have the original as already discussed, and you have what is called the concepts or concept JKD. What the concepts are is mainly the Fillipino martial arts with some of Bruce Lee techniques (although not required) included to make the system or concept.
The concept version relies heavily on the philosophy of combat in that it stresses that JKD is not a style or system, even though during his life Lee did so on many occasions. Which one you wish to train in is up to the individual as they are both quality martial arts in and of themselves.
As a teacher of the original JKD Carter Hargrave has been at the forefront of spreading the art. He is the President of the World Jeet Kune Do Federation www.worldjkd.com.
