In 1993 we came in contact with Ted Wong through our good friend and Jeet Kune Do instructor Richard Torres (New York, USA) and that was the start of our Jeet Kune Do training.
BRUCE LEE FOUNDATION
Annual seminars organized by the Bruce Lee Educational Foundation in America were a regular part of our training. San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, we have trained a lot and got to know everyone.
Encounters with Linda Lee and Shannon Lee (wife and daughter of Bruce) are also part of that.
In addition, the "in between" seminars in New York, Germany, Spain, Italy and last but not least; private lessons with Ted Wong in Los Angeles, New York and the Netherlands when he was back in the country. All seminars were packed with information, and we were always surprised that you can find more stuff to learn, every time we trained with him.
But beware, do not think that we mean that you ‘have to’ learn as much as possible. "Simplicity" is the key Bruce has said, but that will be clear if you train with us for a while!
2001 Bruce Lee Educational Foundation Seminar
The highlight was the Bruce Lee Educational Foundation Seminar that we were allowed to organize in 2001 in the Netherlands. All Bruce students together, and also his wife and daughter.
This was really a one-time experience that was not to be missed, and have many fond memories of that. Unfortunately, this was also the last time that the BLEF in the old composition was together.
With some pride we can say that we belong to the 2nd generation teachers after Bruce! We are one of the few in Europe and even the only ones in the Netherlands who have been certified by Ted Wong to be able to teach in original Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do.
And the students who train at The Academy are the third generation after Bruce, if you stop and think about it ....... is this totally crazy !?
