This page reflects the list of black belts or black sashes, as well as JKDA instructors who are currently active with the Jeet Kune Do Association and / or Self Defense Systems International.  There have been some who have claimed ranking under the JKDA or SDS Int'l whose allegations are completely fraudulent.  Others have been dismissed from our organization, but still claim affiliation for commercial or credential purposes.  There are a very few of our people who have dropped out of the martial arts, but left in good standing.
