"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

About me

I have a background in IT but a passion for martial arts. As an instructor with the JKD Wednesday Night Group, the martial arts have become an integral part of my daily life. I co-founded Phantom Productions in 2006, and later the Primal Martial Arts Academy and Chinatown JKD Association in 2011. My primary focus at present is applying Jeet Kune Do and JKD principles to Combat Sports through my work with athletes.

I train and teach a few martial arts systems but most of my expertise is in the area of hand-to-hand combat. I have authored several articles which can be found here: jkdwednite.com/articles.htm as well as scribd.com/mikeblesch. I also have experience in video production (pre & post). I created jkdlessons.com with my partners Jeremy Lynch, Steven Resell, and Tim Tackett. Video samples can be found here, here, & on my YouTube channel. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
