Agogi Academy of Combatives proudly announces Sifu Dwight Woods’ 1st Inverness Jeet Kune Do/Kali/Silat Seminar.
Chief Instructor Sifu Dwight Woods, is a martial artist who has over 35 years of experience, 34½ of which have been dedicated to the study and practice of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do.
Sifu Dwight is a native of Trinidad, West Indies who grew up on the neighbouring island of Barbados. In 1983, he was the first Caribbean resident to attend a California Martial Arts Academy seminar where he met and trained under Dan Inosanto, Cass Magda, Francis Fong, Paul Vunak, Larry Hartsell and Tim Tackett.
In 1985, he received his Apprentice Instructor certificate from Dan Inosanto and UMAA was started. At first, UMAA operated out of the garage of Dwight’s home in Barbados.
That “backyard JKD mentality” continued in 1986 when he relocated to Miami, Florida as UMAA moved through a succession of parks, basketball courts, living rooms and garages.
In April 1988, the first step was taken to provide instruction to a wider clientele with the opening of the first “bricks & mortar” Academy in the warehouse district of Tamiami Airport. This semi-private/semi-public tradition continued for 4 years as the word about JKD was spread through the South Florida area.
In December 1992, UMAA moved to its first “commercial” location on busy Kendall Drive in southwest Miami-Dade county.
In March 1996, in its second Kendall Drive incarnation, UMAA provided students from ages 7 and up with 2400 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities, including heavy bag and wooden dummy stations, a pro shop and separate men’s and women’s shower and bathroom facilities.
In October 1996, Dwight Woods was awarded the rank of Full Instructor in Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial arts by Dan Inosanto. His other instructorship rankings are in Muay Thai under Surachai Sirisute as well as teaching diplomas in Boxe Française-Savate under Salem Assli and Wing Chun Gung Fu under Francis Fong.
