Welcome to ScimitarJKD, Teaching a unique combination of Old School Kune Do and Jeet Kune Do Concepts, and related martial arts aiming for a complete street combat.
Why Choose Scimitar JKD?
With so many other excellent arts out there such are Karate, Ju Jitsu, MMA, Krav Maga, Boxing, Thai Boxing, Tae Kwon Do and many many more why train JKD? Here at ScimitarJKD we teach a blend of arts specifically designed for street combat using many principles and techniques from other arts blended together to fit todays street encounters.
Traditional arts can be inefficient or outdated for todays environment, sport based arts can be great at sparring but limit themselves and the practitioner by adherence to rules. Simple concepts such as training in footwear can make a difference. You will not be wearing a Gi and in bare feet in the street. Training in any martial art is always good but the artist should analyse what is being taught and imagine would that technique work against an opponent who is actively resisting!?





I often hear people say "I want to get fitter before i come training" My usual reply is come training and get fitter! Our classes are very friendly and we will make you feel welcome, the lessons are tailored to the individuals who attend with a goal of pushing fitness and ability to grow the student. If people are looking for fitness instruction however, I recommend Rob Paul, My family and I have trained with Rob weekly for many years. Robs training will help your martial arts fitness and overall physical health massively

Jeet Kune Do or JKD is the martial art philosophy that Bruce Lee developed over the last few years of his life. Originally Bruce wanted to create his own style but over time felt that this was too limiting to the martial artist, as Bruce felt a one size fits all scenario was too riged. He wanted to tailor fit his art to the practitioner. He developed some core techniques that aligned with his principals, Such as Economy of Motion, Intercepting, Strong Hand Forward, Physical Fitness and Training. To complete the ideals of Bruce Lee ScimitarJKD has combined different lineages of JKD from different instructors who trained with Bruce and combined to get the most total system for today's environment. We teach JKD principles and JKD concepts along with Western fencing ideals, Western Boxing and aspects of Wing Chun, Thai Boxing, Filipino Martial arts, Grappling arts such as Judo, Ju-Jitsu (Brazilian and Traditional) WW2 Combatives and other arts to ensure we have the most complete approach to street combat.

Scimitar Martial arts was created by Sifu Carl Lewis of Wrexham

Sifu Scott Pratt has trained under Sifu Carl for over 20 years and is one of Sifu Carl's most dedicated students. Scott first met Sifu Tim Tackett in 2006 and has traveled to the USA and Europe many times to train with Tim and the Wednesday Night group instructors. Scott has also had the pleasure of training with Sifu Larry Hartsell, Sifu Chris Kent and Guro Dan Inosanto as well as a host of other instructors from many different countries such as UK, Germany, Belgium and the USA. Scott's first love is being a student of martial arts and continues to train with Sifu Carl weekly to hone his skills. When asked to teach for Carl, Scott initially declined but after 12 months of intense training, opened his school in Connah's Quay and has not looked back since. Sifu Scott teaches one night a week due to work and training commitments but will take private lessons occasionally. Scott runs his class as a not for profit organisation.
