The World Jeet Kune Do Federation (WJKDF) is headquartered in New York City. We seek to promote the sport of JKD while maintaining the highest professional and international standards. Among it’s many activities and functions the WJKDF will be accepting memberships, certifying instructors, determining rankings, hosting seminars and holding world-class championships throughout the year.

Our Beginnings

The World Jeet Kune Do Federation (WJKDF) was born out of a need to create a truly worldwide JKD sports organization and to promote and regulate the sport of Jeet Kune Do for the benefit of young athletes around the globe. Our mission is to bring JKD up to the level of recognition and status enjoyed by other martial arts and combat sports. Our board is international and its members come to WJKDF with their own unique strengths. Several board members are internationally recognized Jeet Kune Do sifus and heads of national martial arts organizations in their respective countries. Our connection to original Jeet Kune Do is through our Chairman, Grandmaster Thomas Keplar.
