The year 1992 was a year in which Carter Hargrave accomplished more than founding the American Combat Kempo. He also founded the World Jeet Kune Do Federation. He came to the conclusion that such an organization is needed in order to promote the teachings of Bruce Lee. These have influenced Hargrave a lot. He is a second generation JKD teacher, this meaning that he learned from an Original Bruce Lee School student. Original JKD teachers, like Hargrave is for over eighteen years now, only teach the art of Bruce Lee’s techniques, just like he was teaching it. Besides original JKD, there also is concept JKD, this meaning that some of Bruce Lee’s techniques are included in the system. The World Jeet Kune Do Federation teaches the original Jeet Kune Do methods.
Jeet Kune Do is the only non-classical Gung Fu system that currently exists. Bruce Lee combined Wing Chun Kung Fu, American Boxing, Grappling and French Fencing and created the ultimate combat art. At the point when Carter Hargrave had the idea of creating World Jeet Kune Do Federation this art was going thorough extremely hard times. There was no institution to promote it and the instructors were in total disagreement because of political issues.
