These instructors are three of only five people to have ever been certified by Sifu Taky Kimura to teach Jun Fan Gung Fu in over 50 years since the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute first opened its doors back in 1960.
Andrew has shown an impressive mastery of Jeet Kune Do and been put through the rigorous training and knowledge required to obtain this unique distinction. Andrew has seriously studied Jeet Kune Do for over 20 years. In addition, Andrew, like the art's founder, is no stranger to real world combat, living and working for over 10 years in one of the roughest parts of the Pacific Northwest and dealing with gang members and street fighters in and around Seattle. He has learned to appreciate the potency of the art that was entrusted to his father in addition to the deeper, philosophical applications of the art to other issues outside the realm of hand-to-hand combat. An articulate and entertaining teacher, speaker and spokesman for the Kimura family and the art of Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do that Bruce Lee entrusted to his family, Andrew Kimura is one of the most authentic practitioners of the martial art system developed by the legendary Bruce Lee. Andrew is an accomplished educator in the areas of health, self-defense, philosophy and human development, having lectured and taught thousands all over the United States and Europe. He is currently developing a line of instructional videos, books and other educational products that will assist him in spreading the teachings that his family has kept privately these past three decades to sincere and interested individuals around the world.
