Our Story

JKD SEA Martial arts was founded in 2010

By Chief instructor Sifu / Guro Brian Kennedy. It is the first officially certified martial arts academy in the Republic of Ireland to teach Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, Inosanto Lacoste blend of Filipino martial arts and maphilindo silat with a genuine lineage to the source of these arts.


The academy offers classes in,

Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do

Blood and Bones Tactical ( Filipino weapons systems )

Fractal Fighting Arts ( Indonesian Pencak Silat )

and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.



Club Standards

At our club we offer students the chance to go up through the ranks and obtain certification. Gradings are held every 4 months and only if a student has worked hard, attended regular classes and have trained to the standard that is expected of them are they then put forward to test.

At our school, we do not hand out grades as we feel this devalues the hard work put in by other students and instructors.

This keeps our school standards high. if a student is succussfull they will receive an official grading certificate signed by Guro Brian Kennedy .

So you can train with us, in the full knowledge that your training, your gradings and your qualifications will be authentic, of the highest standards and will hold a true lineage right back to the founder of the art.
