Ian Hunter — Founder of Modern JKD

Classically trained in Korean Karate, Ian has +25 years of experience training in Traditional Taekwondo, Sport Taekwondo, Shorin-Ryu Karate-Do and Jeet Kune Do.

Inspired by Bruce Lee’s art of Jeet KuneDo, Ian created Modern JKD on August 7th, 2017 due to his interest in effective self defense over sport training.

Ian is currently planning his move to Cleveland, Ohio early 2020 to open the Headquarters of Modern JKD.

Created on August 7th, 2017, Modern JKD is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on striking with particular emphasis on interception. 

Modern JKD expanded beyond Jeet Kune Do due to a lack of grappling and weapons training which is necessary for combative training.

Due to the nature of training, sweating and clothing constantly being tugged on, we have begun to use Gi and No-Gi uniforms while also following a belt system similar to the Dan Ranking System.

We do not claim to be or teach Jeet Kune Do, as it’s limited. We proudly offer Modern JKD for all of your self defense needs.
