Jeet Kune Do was established by Bruce Lee over 35 years ago. He developed his system to free the martial artist from forms and traditions.

He basically called them a classical mess. Jeet Kune Do has been said to be the original MMA, incorporating over 26 different martial arts.

Upon Bruce Lee’s death in 1973, his top student and long time friend, Dan Inosanto was left with the responsibility of carrying on the system. Guro Dan Inosanto began to do what Bruce Lee did by incorporating the Weapons Based Filipino Martial Arts.

Paul Vunak was Dan Inosanto’s top student and instructor over 30 years ago which led to the founding of Progressive Fighting System.

Progressive Fighting Systems is an organization dedicated to teaching realistic self defense and promoting the expansion of JKD and the Filipino Martial Arts. PFS was founded over 25 years ago by Sifu Paul Vunak.


Our goal is to provide you with a world class formula for self defense.

The same system used by our elite forces such as the Navy Seals, DEA, FBI, SWAT and over 50 police departments nationwide. our methods include the concepts and techniques of over 30 martial arts such as, but not limited to Boxing, MUAY THAI Boxing, Savate, Wing Chun, Judo, Jiujitsu, and weapons based Filipino Martial Arts.
