OORA and im willing to do whatever it takes to learn more to one day be called a UFC champ.

  • Wow I’m sold! Jason’s credentials are very impressive… I definitely wanna get into this gym as soon as move to Eugene.

  • Scott Shields Martial Arts is simply the best in the business. I have been training in Jeet Kune Do for about 5 years now. For the first few years I tried several different schools and took lots of seminars. I hated floating around but I just could not find a good teacher and a school with a very comfortable atmosphere. Finally I found Sifu Scott Shields. Not only is he a WORLD CLASS instructor, his academy is an amazing place that his students can really call home! Sifu Shields is a second generation student of Bruce Lee, having gotten his instructor rank from Bruce Lee’s protégé Dan Inosanto, so it is very cool to be so close to the source of Jeet Kune Do, you can’t really get much closer than that! He really explains the material well and makes sure his students understand it. If you are having a hard time with something he will personally work with you to make sure you get. All of the instructors under him are very knowledgeable, professional and helpful and the cool thing is that the other students even go out of the way to help you as well! Everyone goes out of their way to welcome new students so you don’t have to feel worried or anxious, you will not be out of place your first time. We are a big family and a great team that works together and always helps each other. Go Team Jaguar! I recommend Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy to everyone, children and adults alike. There are classes for whatever you are interested in, JKD (Jeet Kune Do), Kali/Filipino Martial Arts, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu and kids classes I think are MMA but I don’t have kids so I am not sure. I love the Jeet Kune Do because of the philosophy but it doesn’t matter what art you take, I have watched other classes and Sifu’s teaching skill is so high it is amazing. Everyone has fun and gets good. I can’t say enough good things about the school and I am so grateful to have ended up at Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy and as a member of Team Jaguar!!!
