"The individual is what matters, not the system. Remember that man created the method, not the method man". Krishnamurti

"Man, living creature, is always more important than any established style or system". Bruce Lee

The following list are the coaches and authorized groups that are being prepared by Joaquín Marcelo to perpetuate the legacy of Jeet Kune Do to the following generations. What we look for is quality and not quantity. This way we want to promote a selected group that is really prepared to become instructors one day and carry on the teachings with the highest possible quality. To be certified as a coach, they must be personally trained by Joaquín Marcelo or one of his Certified Coaches and show:

  • That they follow the JKD training philosophy of Bruce Lee, the way it was taught by Ted Wong
  • High moral standards
  • High technical level
  • That they are able to teach their students the right way
  • That they are able to apply what they learned through sparring
