Interested in training in Jeet Kune Do? Unless you’re part of a group that trains out of the garage, like the old days of JKD, it might be a little bit harder to find a JKD school in San Diego County. When I started to look for a JKD school everyone I talked to referred me to Roy Harris at the Harris Academy.
I went to the academy to talk with Mr. Harris and I was really surprised how soft spoken and easy going he was. I almost forgot that he was a former cop and a well respected defensive tactics expert. To make a long story short I was amazed at Mr. Harris’s knowledge in various martial arts including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, and Jeet Kune Do. I took several private classes with Mr. Harris which expanded my defensive tactics knowledge and opened my eyes to the study of the martial way.
If your interested in Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts, or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu then Roy Harris is the man to see. Check out his websites for tons of useful articles, visit his academy and sit in on a class or two, talk golf with him if you like…you won’t regret it.
