Creating Successful Students
We do this at Evolution Martial Arts by guiding students properly through progressive levels of training from beginner to advanced using a combination of traditional and modern training methods. As you step into the space, you'll be greeted by a welcoming community of students in an atmosphere dedicated to positive learning. Everyone is there to learn, get in a good workout, and have a great time.
Class begins with a collective salutation, setting the tone for focused learning. Throughout the class, you'll receive instruction in a framework that allows for discovery and growth. Whether the training is individual or with a partner, those frameworks maintain a level of safety for everyone but with the adaptability to adjust to any skill level. Guidance is given throughout the class on three levels; as a whole, to partners working together, and to individuals.
Class ends with a collective salutation that gives thanks to everyone for contributing.

Level 1 Class
Monday & Wednesday 6:30-7:30PM
The beginner adult class follows the belt system of our Duo Ji Kung Fu to ensure that students gain the proper level of knowledge and skill with the necessary combative movements to begin training in Jeet Kune Do. These movements include footwork, falls, tumbling, grappling, throwing, restraints, and proper distancing with punching and kicking. The progressive building of base-level skills will ensure greater safety in training and allow students to fully embrace the benefits of Jeet Kune Do. Awareness of self in relation to others when moving is of prime importance in the training of any martial art. The enlightenment gained from the Jeet Kune Do training comes more easily and more fully to those who better know themselves. The belt system is a series of levels designed to guide students on a journey of self-discovery. This leads to a greater awareness of themselves; physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Jerry Poteet and the others who trained with Bruce Lee at the Chinatown school began their training in Jeet Kune Do with an already established level of martial skill, experience in combat, and the ability to apply themselves physically.
The advanced class will be used to elevate a student's ability to apply themselves combatively. To do this, students will include more of the Jeet Kune Do training that will refine personal skill in manipulating kinetic energy through the energy drills, unlock a more profound understanding in the realm of combat through the trapping drills, challenge their timing and distancing with a broader range of sparring drills, and integrate the "always think hit" mindset by exploring a variety of combative scenarios.

This fast-paced class will elevate a student's ability to apply themselves combatively.
The Jeet Kune Do training will increase tactile awareness and refine personal skill in manipulating kinetic energy through the energy drills passed down from Bruce Lee.
Trapping drills will set a framework for students to explore open-hand striking and direct manipulation of their opponent.
Both pad and sparring drills will build spatial awareness, reactivity, and integrate the "always think hit" mindset into their movements.
