    And he is one of the JKD seniors in Europe. He has been practicing JKD since it arrived on our shores.

    And tell him when you see him I still think he looks like Bruce Willis :D

    Spent many a happy hour at the Orpington class. Ralph is a superb instructor and well worth training under.

    The fortunate thing for his students also, is because he does not heavily advertise his classes the numbers are fairly small so the level of tuition is great.

    I went to Ralphs class once and really enjoyed it. Then I started to learn Wing Chun so concentrated on that. It looks as though the WC has stopped now so I might venture back to Ralph, thing is there are things I didn't learn in WC like double chi sao, does Ralph teach this? I remember there was quite a heavy focus on the kali elements.

    It's been a while since i was there but Ralph did teach double Chi Sau and other aspects of Jun Fan Gung Fu / Wing Chun.

    Ralph did not just focus on Kali when i was with him, some lessons were
    weapons focussed, others empty hand.

    If you can't make Ralphs class though, then i can highly recommend Paul Finn as well. Paul teaches in Mottingham and Sidcup. He is an Instructor under

    Ralph, Dan Inosanto and Rick Faye in JKD / Kali

    as well as holding instructorships in Silat, Wing Chun and Doce Pares.

    If you want his website / contact details PM me and i shall send them to you.

    hey stuart,
    yeah he does do the single and double hand chi sao, the trapping part of jfgf/jfjkd. also does stick in the class.

    But as far a i know, the classes are not running at the moment
