Jon has studied various martial arts thoughout school and university which continued during his time in China. He became friends with Simon White in 2005 and started to train together - stating that he had found "his" martial art.
In March 2013 Jon was awarded his first degree Black Belt with Matt Grace - and is now joined the Academy as an instructor both within and outside the Academy.
Despite a number of injuries throughout the years, Jon continues to learn and teach, and is an asset to the Academy.
JKD Training Continues During Lockdown
Great to see so many students joining the weekly Zoom classes on Tuesday's at 8pm. These session are focused on training physical attributes and keeping them sharp for when we are able to train again.
From Thursday 25th June, Kev will also be running "Bruce Lee Boot Camp" in Shortlands park. These sessions are limited to 5 people to ensure we comply with Goverment regulations.
We are planning the required changes to class when we are fully back, including temperature checks / hand sanitiser on the way in, training with only one partner for each session, etc. All details will be advised nearer the time.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact either Simon, Kev or Jon. :)
