The different systems we teach at Black Dragon Self Defense Academy have been brought together to form a cohesive, total-combat training method that will prepare the student to defend themselves at all ranges of combat versus unarmed or armed attacks. Regardless if you find yourself standing, on the ground, facing a knife, gun or some other weapon - our self defense programs will prepare you to deal with these threats to your person with a tactical and intelligent approach.  All of our programs are trained with “aliveness” and resistance, so that you’ll feel confident that what you are learning will work under pressure.

Jeet Kune Do is the art that was developed and taught by Bruce Lee. It is a form of kickboxing that utilizes fast, efficient and non-telegraphic attacks, movements and footwork. The JKD practitioner relies on deceptive movements, speed, timing and rhythm to overcome his attacker. Interception is key - that ability to strike an attacker before their attack can land on you. Another element of JKD is trapping, which uses structure and tactile response to remove blocks/obstructions and tie up the attacker, leaving open lines for your own attacks.
Jeet Kune Do at Black Dragon Self Defense Academy is taught how Bruce Lee taught it to his students. We do not add things or take them away - if Bruce Lee taught it, so do we.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art that uses joint locks, chokes and other submissions to overpower an attacker. While it has stand up elements for take downs, the majority of BJJ's techniques and tactics are ground based. On the ground, bigger and stronger attackers are less able to utilize their size and strength differences. With the ability to get positional dominance, deploy strikes as well as submissions, and the ability to escape from being controlled, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner has many options for self defense.
