Sifu Darryl D’Amico

Sifu Darryl has depths and levels of Jeet Kune Do expertise, specializing in advanced energy training, Sifu Darryl can not only use every aspect of Jeet Kune Do combatively, but can also break down the finer points of “inner circle” energy training.
Sifu Darryl is also certified in Jerry Poteet’s Star Weapons/Escrima System, making him a 2nd Escrimador with a lineage that goes back to many of the original Filipino Masters, including Leo Huron, Angel Cabales, and several others.

Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do is the martial art developed by renowned martial artist Bruce Lee. With the key principles of economy of motion, simplicity, longest weapon to the nearest target, no passive moves, and attack the attack. As a non-classical fighting art, Jeet Kune Do is based on skill, not on how many techniques, arts, or forms you know.
