Jeet Kune Do is a phrase created by the late Bruce Lee to describe his concept of martial arts. Jeet Kune Do (or JKD for short) is not a style but rather a concept or principle that states that one should be doing the most efficient and effective thing to accomplish the task at hand, which in our case is self-defense against real violence.
Progressive Combat Systems, located in Aurora, is Colorado’s premiere Jeet Kune Do school. At Progressive Combat Systems we are not bogged down by tradition or style but rather we will train you to be able to deal with any real-life violent encounter that you may need to defend yourself, friends or family from.
While many Jeet Kune Do schools force you to hold onto traditional Jeet Kune Do movements we coach you to fight in the most effective manner possible for your size, gender, athletic ability, age, and of course the situation at hand. In fact we may not look like most Jeet Kune Do or martial arts schools at all, that is on purpose.
Why Progressive Combat Systems for your Jeet Kune Do Training?
Reality, Pure & Simple
FBI studies show that martial artists lose street fights 70% of the time. At PCS we will prepare you for real violence and teach you to be a winner. You will be the “un-martial artist”.
The First 2 Seconds Before the Fight Happens
If you don’t know what that means then baby you will lose, and losing on the street can mean anything. We will teach you to see the sucker punch or ambush attack before it happens.
Guns are a Reality!
If you don’t know how to use them or win against them then your school isn’t preparing you for reality. Most gun disarms are crap and they don’t consider other factors. We teach 3 distinct level of disarms, how to do them, when to do them, what to do if you can’t do them, when you should and shouldn’t be a hero, and how to win regardless.
Knives Kill People!
If you are learning some fancy mystical magical knife disarms and think that will work then I hope you have your organ donor form filled out already. We will teach you what to do instead. Remember, winning means your family and friends get to continue enjoying your presence on this planet.
Multiple Attackers is Not Only Possible it is Likely
Several of my students have been attacked by multiple attackers and ALL of them have won. I will teach you how.
We Won’t Give You Dain Brammage.
So many martial arts schools including Jeet Kune Do schools focus on contact sparring. Well in order to do contact sparring you must use safer sport-oriented techniques and equipment and enjoy explaining black eyes to your coworkers and people at the grocery store. Look, I can get you combat-ready in 6 months without a single black eye. We skip the contact sparring and use reality-based drills where nobody gets hurt and everyone gets better.
We Won’t Make You Feel Stupid
Who likes showing up at a scary new place and then being humiliated? I sure wouldn’t and that is not our culture. We are warm, welcoming, and will share our knowledge with you.
Yeah I said it. Cool people. We don’t cater to self-indulgent jerks who like to hurt people or show off. We are a school of fun, cool people who have a shared desire to be warriors in a dangerous world. We are all on a first-name basis and good humor is common place. People drive from all over the Denver metro area including Colorado Springs, Bennett, Boulder and more to train at our Aurora, Colorado studio, I hope that says something.
My students always comment that they have never been to any martial arts school where the coach really helped them understand the application of what they were learning. If I am not helping you get better then you are throwing your money away. I will make you as awesome as you can be and probably better than that, faster than would normally be possible.
Our Stuff Works!
At our Aurora, Colorado studio I keep a folder full of testimonials from real students of mine who have been attacked by knives, multiple attackers, and more. They ALL won and came out without a scratch. No mystical martial arts voodoo here, real tactics win real violence. Not to mention our stuff is battle-tested by US Navy SEALs, Marine Corps, SWAT, CIA, FBI, and more. Our foundational system is Rapid Assault Tactics created by martial arts legend Paul Vunak for the US Navy’s SEAL Team Six.
