Jeet Kune Do
In early 1968 Bruce Lee in collaboration with his close friend and student Dan Inosanto coined the term "Jeet Kune Do" the "Way of the Intercepting Fist".
This effective system of self defence has grown almost entirely due to the efforts of Dan Inosanto since the untimely death of Bruce Lee.
The Australian Jeet Kune Do Association Limited (AJKDA) is formally recognised by the Martial Arts Industry Association (MAIA) as the sole representative body for Jeet Kune Do in Australia.
The MAIA is officially recognised as the peak industry body for martial arts in Australia and acts as the representative body for the collective interests of the martial arts to the Federal, State and Territory Governments, the general community and the media.
