Carter Hargrave Fraud Program Eliminating Martial Arts Scams In Karate,MMA, and Kung Fu, and of course in this case Jeet Kune Do.
Carter Hargrave the director of multiple martial arts associations and federations has founded this anti fraud program putting in place safeguards in an attempt eliminate all fraud in the famous art of legendary actor and martial artist Bruce Lee. Fraud and scams are prevalent in Jeet Kune Do and Hargrave's system weeds out the fakes by offering the public authentic teachings that were not available in many parts of the world until Hargrave's International group of over eight thousand members took Jeet Kune Do mainstream.
The further from the United States that the student that is searching for real Bruce Lee teachings the higher the chance of fraud due to the simple fact that there were very few original teachers and students at Bruce Lee's three schools. At one time in JKD history there were less than fifty teachers worldwide.
Today the larges area of scams and fake teachers or school is in Asia.
Carter Hargrave is working non stop to make the real martial arts available worldwide to those that cant find a legitimate teacher, as well as to keep the fake training dvd's and books away from the public.
Support Carter Hargrave in his efforts to promote legitimate martial arts teachers not only in Jeet Kune Do but in Kempo Karate. SKarate and Kung Fu scams and fraud in the martial arts hurt not ony the potential student but also the arts themselves.
One of the questions that we get asked all the time is "So how do you spot a fraud or a scam in the particular martial art". You start with the art that you are wanting to partake in, and contact several associations. You can judge alot by the response that you receive. Many times you will not hear anything due to the websites being a fraud themselves.
Check out the teachers credentials or resume online and through word of mouth or through martial arts associations and organizations.
The teacher that you are interested in taking lesson from must have a direct line to Bruce Lee. If they don't well you know you have a fake.
Other martial arts other than the arts core serve no purpose other than to water down the art itself or to fill in the blanks in the teachers knowledge of the real art. The arts Bruce Lee utilized for Jeet Kune Do were Wing Chun, American Boxing, and footwork from French Fencing.
If there are several arts that were not in the original that you have researched you are on the track of finding non legitimacy or fraud.
The Chief Instructor for World Kenpo and World Jeet Kune Do Carter Hargrave will help you.
By keeping our program teaching and materials available to more places than any Jeet Kune Do teacher in the history of the art we insure that real JKD wins, and so do you.
