We start the attack later than the enemy but finish before him” – is the Jeet Kune Do Concept.

And what on earth is this? Jeet Kune Do Concept.

Belagavi is brimful of talent and we got to know about Dr. Prakash Mugali, who is an Engineer (E&C) by profession, runs his company “Enerzi” a highly appreciated brand in the segment of Industrial Food Processing, Ceramics Processing, Polymer Curing Solutions, Plasma Synthesis, and custom-built RF & Microwave systems and at the same time also trains people in Jeet Kune Do.

After working in Bengaluru he decided to start his own startup in the field of Instrumentation. But with the new company with only work and no time for anything else, my brain was looking for something else to keep my momentum going.

He loved Karate and even practiced the same for 5 years when in college but he loved Bruce Lee and his art and then found a trainer in Mumbai who used to teach Jeet Kune Do, the philosophy of Bruce Lee.

Later he got his Black belt and continued his training. If one desires there is nothing is impossible and this where he realized during the Black belt exams.

Dr. Prakash Mugali (AIJH Instructor – Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do) is the first Trainer in North Karnataka to offer Jeet Kune Do (Art & Philosophy of Bruce Lee) under the Authentic Lineage of Grandmaster Major Deepak Rao (Master Instructor & Asean Pioneer of Jeet Kune Do). Dr. Prakash is also an affiliate of the UCCA Professional Blackbelt Training Academy. Dr. Prakash is a 2nd Degree Blackbelt in Unarmed Combat from UCCA, Mumbai & a 3rd Generation Apprentice Instructor of Jeet Kune Do (Art & Philosophy of Bruce Lee).

JKD – For those who aspire to explore the deeper aspects of martial art and wish to pursue continued training in the art, Jeet Kune Do Ideology is an ocean of art & philosophy. Based on the art & philosophy of Bruce Lee, a pioneered form from my teacher Major Deepak Rao (Asian pioneer of JKD & President’s Award). 

Simple self Defense – A course based on the simple but effective techniques for self-defense in street situations. The course has been designed to be principle-based and forms the basic toolkit of Jeet Kune Do. Ideally suited for people looking for a short course for learning techniques for self-defense especially working women & students.

  1. Jeet Kune Do is a form of Martial Art that is no form at all. In Bruce Lee’s own words ‘ The art of fighting, without fighting ‘. It does not believe in any belt or grading system. The doctrine here is, again in Bruce Lee’s words ” Adapt or die. Be like water. When in a round vessel be round, & when in a square, be square”.
    Happy to see some body propagating this philosophy. Bruce Lee has been my idol, my inspiration, all through out, & continues to be so. I been a practitioner of various martial arts, & occasionally do practise even today , though in my almost mid fifties. Felt nice reading this article.
