Martial Art Styles

Jason Boh's School of Martial Arts predominantly teaches the following styles to form the basis of it's students training. Other styles are studied on occasion.

Jeet Kune Do (JKD) "The Way Of The Intercepting Fist"

Founded by Bruce Lee and then developed after his death by his senior student and friend Dan Inosanto, JKD uses principles and concepts rather than styles in order to develop the attributes of the individual. Such principles include interception of attack rather than blocking and countering, and the ability to flow from any range and use any body part against the nearest available target. JKD emphasises the development of the individual and ultimately allows them to find and develop their own 'way' in order to satisfy their own needs, either from a mixture of different arts or from just one.


Jun Fan Martial Arts

Founded by the late Bruce Lee Jun Fan Gung Fu incorporates elements of the Wing Chun Kung Fu system which Bruce Lee modified, and utilises various training methods such as trapping, energy drills, and wooden dummy forms. Jun Fan Kickboxing incorporates elements of western boxing combined with the kicking methods from other martial arts systems including the Korean and Japanese arts. Combining drills which feature punching, kicking, trapping, take-downs and grappling and use 'alive' equipment such as focus pads, allows the student to escape static drilling , encouraging un-rehearsed movements which are more likely to be encountered in combat. Jun Fan Gung Fu is also an excellent method of aerobic and muscular endurance conditioning.


Filipino Martial Arts - Kali

A very comprehensive art addressing all ranges of combat, Filipino Martial Arts combines both weaponry and empty hand methods. Weaponry used includes single stick, double stick, single knife, double knife, stick and knife and flexible weapons. These weapons may be translated into normal everyday items such as a rolled up newspaper for self-defence purposes. The student learns the various angles of attack and this then assists in practising disarms and counter techniques.


Filipino Martial Arts - Panantukan

Panantukan is one element of the empty hand phase of Kali, and is often referred to as "Filipino boxing". Similar in structure to western boxing (but without the sport's limitations), Panantukan allows the person to use all elements of the upper body and targets may include eyes, groin and nerve points. The system also incorporates the disturbance of an opponent's body balance and manipulation of their limbs.


Grappling

The art of ground fighting. The type of grappling we currently study takes its form from a number of systems. Combining pins, escapes, arm bars, leg locks and chokes from Judo, Brazilian Ju Jitsu and Kali. Occasionally, this can also incorporate striking simultaneously. Our form of grappling does not necessarily always end up on the mats, it can be applied from a standing position, ideal for control and restraint purposes.


Student Progression

Student Grades & Phases

All students are graded under Sensei Jason Boh in accordance with the school's curriculum. There are 6 grades to black belt (excluding white) and the curriculum is divided into 3 main areas:

instructor


The assessment criteria contains a pedigree of arts we teach and a combination of systems passed onto Sensei by his teachers. Students are graded in SMA which encompass the following:

Juniors - Jun Fan Gung Fu/Kickboxing, Jeet Kune Do Concepts

Seniors - Jun Fan Gung Fu/Kickboxing, Filipino Martial Arts, Jeet Kune Do Concepts

Upon a successful grading, Juniors are awarded a coloured tag to place on their belt which represents the colour of the next belt. Although the tag scheme is an intermediate between belts, it is still acknowledged as a pass.

Gradings are held twice a year and are conducted formally at a pre-arranged date and time. Students are asked to demonstrate the material they have been training, appropriate to their level. This forms an ideal summary of the students development and also acts as a useful tool to pressure test the students character.

Students must be invited to attend a grading examination. Continual assessment takes place during every class and Instructors observe ability, attendance, discipline and attitude. Instructors must feel confident the student will pass the assessment if they are to be put forward to grade under Sensei.


Instructor Program

Jason Boh's School Of Martial Arts certifies students as an Instructor in SMA under Jason Boh. The normal entry requirement is black belt in any art, however, Sensei may use discretion and also invite private students onto the program.

Potential Instructors do not necessarily need to be SMA based. This makes an ideal opportunity for other School owners/Instructors to add to their existing skills, if they are unable to attend SMA classes. Individuals will work through the SMA curriculum with a view to at some point, gaining Instructorship and permission to teach the systems within.

Instructor ranking is as follows:

 * Trainee Instructor 1 - 3 (non certified)
 * Level 1 - 5 Instructor
 * Level 6 Full Instructor
