    Hi all,

    I live in Wellington, New Zealand. As we are a small country, we don't traditionally make much noise (with the exception of Lord of the Rings recently I guess), so don't attract some of the great things.

    Finding someone who can teach JKD here is proving to be very difficult. Any ideas? Websites? Contacts? I am interested in merging some of it with my current wing chun studies...

    Thanks very much!

    Did you have any luck with this?

    I'm taking a mixed Wing Chun/Jun Fan Gung Fu/JKD class right now. It's very interesting to be able to see the evolution of ideas!

    No luck in finding any JKD - many years on! I have been training Wing Chun under Sifu Dana Wong since 1999. I am still on the look out for cross-training ideas, merging of skills etc, and would still love to find a competent JKD instructor.

    I am based on the Kapiti Coast (45 min north of Wellington) if anyone is interested in with coming to a Wing Chun class, or mix it up with some constructive cross training :)

    A 5 minute google search found the following Wing Chun school in Wellington:

    http://wingtsunacademy.com/

    If you want to get a better opinion on whether this is a good option for you or not, I would make a new thread on the Wung Chun forum and see if anyone has any information on this particular group.
