TWO NEW SHIHAN APPOINTMENTS

I am very proud to announce the names of two new SHIHANS in SDS,

Shihan Bill Holman   AND   Shihan Tim Kittrell

Shihan Holman of Wagoner, Oklahoma has a 5th Dan in Bushido Kempo and a 1st black sash in JKD.  Bill has been with me, off and on, for over 30 years and over the past several years he has become very active in Bushido Kempo and JKD. 


Shihan Tim Kittrell, of Anadaro, Oklahoma has a 4th Black Sash in JKD, as well as other black belts in SDS weapon divisions.  Tim has been with the JKDA and SDS for many years, and is a former student of the now retired Buck McMillin. 

 Both of these shihans have proven time and time again their dedication and loyalty to SDS and the JKDA as well as to me.  As shihans they will eventually take on more responsibility in SDS.

WELCOME ABOARD TO THIS EXCLUSIVE CIRCLE OF MASTERS.




CURRENT INSTRUCTORS and/or Black Belts/ Sashes

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.
