Bruce Lee's Jun Fan method
Innovative and radically ahead of his time, Bruce Lee developed a martial system and fighting strategy that has lost none of its effectiveness over time. His skill in fighting did more than just landing him jobs on-screen, it literally made him an icon in the world of martial arts. Emphasizing the "ranges of combat". Students are taught to confidently "flow" from long distance, "kicking- range", to middle distance, "hand-range", to close quarter, "trapping & grappling range". Guro Ray Parra trained for many years (until his passing in 2007) under Sifu Larry Hartsell one of Bruce Lee's oldest students, before transferring his training to Sifu Dan Inosanto, who is said to be Bruce Lee's most skillful and senior student.
