Tommy Carruthers International Martial Arts Organisation

At Tommy Carruthers International Martial Arts Organisation, we believe in keeping things simple, direct and realistic.

Our goal is to teach the martial art the way it was intended to be taught- for self defence. We are only interested in practical self defence techniques that work in real life situations. We know that Bruce Lee's martial art should have no shape or form. But we also believe that students need a starting point and we see no better starting point than using techniques from Bruce Lee's modified Wing Chun, boxing and fencing.

Later on, our students are encouraged to strip away the unessentials and really train the essentials, without any telegraphic motions. We actively avoid using complex techniques that can hinder or slow you down. We see no point in using two moves when you can use just one.

We are convinced that the mechanical principles of Bruce Lee's fighting method are as valid today as they were when Bruce was alive. For example, the shortest distance between two points is STILL a straight line!

Here at Tommy Carruthers.com, we are committed to daily decrease.

New video series - Non Classical Gung Fu

Jesse GloverToday we are launching a new video series! Non Classical Gung Fu

First Time Ever Online Lessons of Jesse Glover's Non Classical Gung Fu, presented by Thomas Carruthers Student and Friend of Jesse Glover.

"Non Classical Gung Fu is modified from Jun Fan Gung Fu, taught to Jess Glover from Bruce Lee. It is a simpler and easier way for the normal person on the street to have a workable method of protection. It has a few techniques and is purely based on a strong offence with forward pressure. These lessons are a tribute to my best friend and teacher Mr Jesse R. Glover"

If you are familiar with our Online JKD Club, this series works exactly the same way. As a member of the NCGF club you get access to a new lesson every 3.5 days.

Online Video Club News

GREAT NEWS! We have moved the original FIRST SERIES of the Online JKD Club to our video hosting platform, which means that it is now available for most mobile devices!

If you are currently on the First Series you will now find the videos in the new format, and you can check back to anywhere in the series up until your current video number.

If you are on the Second Series, you can now check back anywhere in the First Series, from the same video page.

We hope you really enjoy seeing the original series now in this form. We would ask however that you use the bandwidth responsibly :-)

We would also like to announce that we are going to be rounding off the current Second Series at lesson 192, bringing the total number of lessons in both series to 300!

Also, we are closing down the CRASH SYSTEM SERIES. Members currently on this series can still finish the series but we won't be taking any new subscriptions. We are however planning to replace this series with a new video series in the near future - WATCH THIS SPACE!
