Through our commitment, experience, and expertise World Jeet Kune Do Federation has established a relationship with our members that will last a lifetime!

All of our full instructors must have current membership, a set of DVD’s and the Original Jeet Kune Do Training Manual to make sure everyone teaches the original JKD system just like Bruce Lee at his three famous schools. You then send us a video of you doing the moves listed in the manual and demonstrated on the DVD’s and we grade you to the level of your skill. If you have little previous training in original JKD then you can progress up the rank levels 2-12, then full instructor. The first level to begin teaching that you can begin with is apprentice instructor trainee available to all. You will need a training partner and you should send videos of your tests. We may also customize your instructor test, and request video of the requirements being demonstrated.
That is how you become a certified instructor. If you have previous training and ranking in JKD then please send us scans of your certificates. All instructors must have a link with our logo to http://www.leejkd.com or http://www.jeetkunedo.org, along with a statement in your bio that you are a supporter of the WJKDF, etc.
