Chief Instructor Kirby Tucker has over 35 years of martial arts training and has actively trained in over 20 different fighting arts from Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Japan,France, Indonesia, Korea, China and theUnited States. He has a direct instructor lineage to Bruce Lee and is a Certified Full Instructor in Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts with Progressive Fighting Systems (PFS). He is certified under Paul Vunak and Shahram Moosavi. He is personally trained and certified in (RBPP) Reality Based Personal Protection training by counter-terrorist Special Agent for the United States Government, Sgt. Jim Wagner.
Kirby began training in Tae Kwon Do at the age of 14. He earned his Black Belt in this art at the age of 19. He went on to study Tien Shan Pai Kung Fu and Jujitsu. Realizing the limitations of traditional martial arts and understanding the complexity of street fighting, he began searching for more practical self-defense training. This desire was created from violent experiences on and off the street. When the opportunity presented itself to engage in several full contact rounds with an experienced Kali and JKD practitioner, his eyes were forever opened to the power, effectiveness and efficiency of Bruce Lee’s strategies. From the moment of his JKD experience he pursued his studies of JKD vigorously. This pursuit included training and discussing the philosophy of JKD with original students of Bruce Lee such as Ted Wong, Joe Lewis and Dan Inosanto.  Kirby’s background includes: Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, Thai boxing, Kina Mutai, RBPP, Filipino Martial Arts, RBPP,Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Special ForcesDefensive Tactics, and various Edged weapons.
