Welcome to Aikia. The term “Aikia” (pronounced eye-key-ah) can be translated from the Greek root as “mental and physical violence” the synonym being prevention. Aikia means violence prevention. The Japanese translation of Aiki is used to mean coordinated energy and kiai is energy exposed in voice. It is understood that when groups are coordinated an allegiance is formed. It takes courage to deliver a successful kiai. Hence, Aikia refers to an “allegiance of courage.” The full meaning of Aikia then becomes an “allegiance of those courageous few who teach the art of preventing violence.” Aikia is a worldwide network of self-defense schools.
The Aikia association was developed between 1973-1977 by university professor and Black Belt ® magazine Hall of Fame member, Dr. Jerry Beasley. In 1983 Dr. Beasley’s teacher, the legendary fighter and personal student under Bruce Lee, Joe Lewis became the Aikia national director of training and instruction. Superstar Bill Wallace joined GM Lewis as Aikia national director in 1991. For almost three decades partners Lewis, Wallace and Beasley used A.I.K.I.A. as the acronym for the American Independent Karate/Kickboxing Instructors Association forming a worldwide network of martial arts school affiliates and a now world famous multi-style martial arts camp called Karate College ™. Each Aikia member enjoys the prestige and honor of an international martial arts network, mastery, and lineage.
Aikia continues to be an innovator in the international martial arts/self-defense community. Aikia created the
MMA S.A.F.E. ™ for Kids (Self-defense, Attitude, Fitness and Endurance) program with logos, banners, and training to insure member schools capture the kids market and was a leading proponent of developing a scientific business approach to managing and promoting the martial arts school (see Dojo Dynamics: Marketing Principles for the Martial Arts School, Black Belt Books 2008). Aikia has been a top promoter for the Jun Fan Kickboxing programs for self-defense and fitness. In 1995 Aikia developed the hybrid and innovative art of Trapboxing aka, Jhapkido: "The Way of Fusing the Energy from different arts.” For more information on qualifying as an Aikia Black Belt affiliate write CEO@Aikia.net
Free on-Line training in Scientific Self-Defense Jun Fan Kick-Boxing
Bruce Lee combined modified wing chun, Western boxing and fencing to form the core of jeet kune do techniques and tactics. While many have focused on wing chun to represent JKD, Lee’s private student, and father of American Kickboxing, Joe Lewis was the most skilled boxer. Perhaps 60% of Bruce Lee’s Tao of Jeet Kune Do focuses on boxing. Now you can train in the original Jeet Kune Do: Scientific Self-Defense program (AKA Jun Fan Kickboxing featuring the Joe Lewis method) taught from Bruce Lee to Joe Lewis (1967-1969) and from Joe Lewis to Dr. Beasley (1982-1998)…Free! This video series features Aikia’s founder and America’s #1 University Martial Arts Professor, Dr. Jerry Beasley: winner of the highly acclaimed year 2000 Black Belt magazine Hall of Fame “Instructor of the Year” award and the prestigious 2009 Black Belt Industry award for “Best Martial Arts Training Camp: Karate College.” Dr. Beasley (JLAKS 8th Dan, 1995) is the only person ever to be certified to teach the Jeet Kune Do system of Fighting Principles and Strategies by Bruce Lee’s only world champion Joe Lewis. Having published 9 books and over 100 articles, Dr. Jerry Beasley is the true warrior-scholar icon with a lineage and 45+ years training background that will never be duplicated.
By studying this video series you’ll learn from a master teacher about how two Icons, Joe Lewis and Bruce Lee viewed martial arts “alive” training and free-style sparring. As a master “teacher of teachers” Dr. Beasley shows you: How to teach a class. How to perform fundamentals at the level of mastery. How to control range, penetrate the offense and much more!
“It’s not the art but the individual that counts; not the technique but the delivery that makes the difference.” Dr. Jerry Beasley
Thousands have attended www.TheKarateCollege.com summer camps or the www.RUJKD.com camps (taught by Beasley, Lewis and Ted Wong 1993-1998) to receive instruction. We now have available the complete program on video. This program, focusing on the Jun Fan kickboxing approach to Jeet Kune Do as taught by Bruce Lee to Joe Lewis and from Joe Lewis to Dr. Jerry Beasley, stayed in the top 10 lists for over a decade and once sold for almost $200 but we are now in position to provide the original review version here absolutely free. Unfortunately, Ted Wong and Joe Lewis are no longer with us. But what they taught to Dr. Beasley has been painstakingly preserved forever on video. There are no fees to pay, nothing to buy so start training today! All it takes is hard work and dedication. The program includes nine easy to follow sparring levels that can quickly be adapted to nine training levels to supplement any standard black belt training program. Aikia does not offer rank in Jeet Kune Do. Use sparring levels 1-3 for yellow belts; 4-6 for green belts and 7-9 for brown belts. As a Black Belt instructor we want you to supercharge your self-defense program: to train and teach the
Aikia ™ Jun Fan Kickboxing system
