Jesse Glover to Teach at the International Fook Yueng Chuan June Mountain Retreat

Jesse Glover, Bruce Lee’s First Student and Assistant Instructor and author of Bruce Lee’s Between Wing Chun and JKD will be a guest at The Little Dojo / International Fook Yueng Chuan Association Mountain Retreat the Weekend of June 5, 6, & 7. Jesse Glover is one of the worlds leading experts on Bruce Lee’s fighting methods. Jesse Glover teaches privately at his school in Seattle and does select seminars around the world.

Jesse Glover and Steve Smith Inheritor of Fook Yueng Chuan have been associates for nearly 20 years sharing training concepts and fighting methods. Jesse Glover was introduced to Fook Yueng by Bruce Lee in 1959 so this will represent a 50 year association with Fook Yueng and Jesse Glover.

Fook Yueng was a teacher / mentor to Bruce Lee from 1959 to about 1966. His back ground studying with many of the top Chinese Martial Artists in the Red Boat Opera taught Fook early to respect all styles learning from them what they had to offer until they became, ”All same, Nothing”. You can see this influence coupled with Bruce Lee’s natural inventiveness culminating in what became know as Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee’s father was a Gung Fu Brother to Fook Yueng and as a favor Fook took Bruce under his wing in 1959 when Bruce moved to the United States picking him up from the ship in Oakland and driving him to Seattle to help him get settled.

Jesse Glover remains friends with Fook Yueng to this day.

Jesse Glover has taught many excellent practitioners over the years and taught along side many more. Some of Jesse’s Students include, Pierre Hartmann of Switzerland, Ingolf Grabitz of Germany, Tommy Carruthers of Scotland, Tom DeFelice of Seattle, Wolfgang Rain, and many others who prefer anonimity. Jesse is a consumate coach who is able to see instantly how to get the most out of an individual while helping that person maintain their unique way of moving. This is a rare oportunity to train with on of the worlds finest teachers.

I would encourage anyone from any background to consider training with us at this Mountain Retreat it is a great opportunity to add essence into any art.

I have opened this event up to 10 more people as Jesse will be there. If you are interested contact SteveSmith@thelittledojo.com

Way of the Warrior / Jeet Kune Do Alliance
Bruce Lee's first Student in the United States. With A Two Day Seminar of Non-Classical Gung Fu on
February 21st and 22nd 2009
Jesse Glover
Jesse Glover first met Si-Jo Lee in 1959 while they were both students at Edison Technical School. The two became close friends and training partners. Lee taught Mr. Glover the inner mechanics of his mother art, Wing Chun so Lee could have someone who gave him a challenge when doing chi-sao and other sensitivity type excercises. Glover was already a respected Judo champion and boxer before training with the late action star. Glover attended many demos with Lee and even served as his first unofficial assistant instructor. When Lee wrote his first book, Chinese Gung Fu, Glover aided in not only performing the techniques for the book but also helping create some of the throwing techniques for the project. Glover has released three books since Lee's death which include: "Bruce Lee: Between Wing Chun and Jeet Kune Do", "Bruce Lee's Non-Classical Gung Fu" and "Non-Classical Gung Fu". Mr. Glover's official site domain is: www.nonclassicalgungfu.com.
