Topic: Jeet Kune Do


  
  SO WHAT IS THIS ART OF JEET KUNE DO ??
Jeet Kune Do avoids the superficial, penetrates the complex, goes to the heart of the problem and pinpoints the key factors.
Jeet Kune Do accepts you as you are and is not about setting up restrictions or "Ways" of doing things - It seeks to be a source of inspiration and delight for those who possess an interest in Bruce Lee, and the martial viewpoints that he created.
To begin with, Jeet Kune Do (abbreviated JKD from now on) means "The way of the intercepting fist" and with this combat phrase in mind, it is basically concerned with the interception of an attack, a movement or even an intention by your opponent to launch an attack.

 Jeet Kune Do - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is the name Bruce Lee gave to his combat philosophy in 1967.
Jeet Kune Do is currently seen as the genesis of the modern spate of hybrid martial arts.
JKD students reject traditional systems of training, fighting styles and the Confucian pedagogy used in traditional kung fu schools because of this lack of flexibility.

 Jeet Kune Do
JKD advocates taking techniques from any martial art; the trapping and short-range punches of Wing Chun, the kicks of northern Chinese styles as well as Savate, the footwork found in Western fencing and the techniques of Western boxing, for example.
JKD is nowadays seen as the first of the modern spate of mixed martial arts.
What JKD practitioners describe as the weakness of traditional martial arts is their rote memorization of techniques (Lee compared doing forms without an opponent to dynamically try them out on to learning to swim by doing the breaststroke on land).

 Jeet Kune Do
Before we examine Jeet Kune Do, let's consider exactly what a "classical" martial art style really is. To begin with, we must recognize the incontrovertible fact that regardless of their many colourful origins (by a wise, mysterious monk, by a special messenger in a dream, in a holy revelation, etc.) styles are created by men.
While JKD utilizes all the ways and means to serve its end (after all, efficiency is anything that scores), it is bound by none and is therefore free.
Remember, too, that Jeet Kune Do is merely a term, a label to be used as a boat to get one across; once across, it is to be discarded and not carried on one's back.

 Jeet Kune Do Bruce Lee's Formless System
But Jeet Kune Do was not an end in itself for Bruce--Nor was it a mere by-product of his martial studies; it was a means to self discovery.
JKD was a prescription for personal growth; it was an investigation of freedom--freedom not only to act naturally and effectively in combat, but in life.
That is the object lesson of Jeet Kune Do, to be unbound, to be free: in combat to use no style as style, to use no way as the way, to have no limitation as the only limitation.

 Jeet Kune Do Politics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The trouble with Jeet Kune Do is that its greatest strength appears to also be its greatest weakness.
Doing this allows the practitioner the opportunity to borrow from other martial arts without making any great alterations his or her fundamental technique (remember- the overwhelming majority of martial arts encourage the practitioner to lead with his or her weaker side!).
If things carry on as they are then Jeet Kune Do (as taught by Bruce Lee) is in grave danger of being diluted and exploited till the point of virtual extinction.

 INDIANA JEET KUNE DO
Jeet Kune Do was developed by the late Bruce Lee, and one of our primary goals is to preserve the art as it was known during his lifetime.
Of course we all remember that rule from grade school right?; 'shortest route from point A to point B is a straight line'.
Sure, straight line hitting may be the most direct, but don't let yourself become bound by that rule, because as soon as you do, you have set limitations upon yourself.

Professor Gary W. Dill is of direct lineage to Bruce Lee's philosophy and art of Jeet Kune Do.
Jeet Kune Do This philosophy, literally translated "the way of the intercepting fist", developed by Bruce Lee and James Yimm Lee (no relation), is a non-classical, non-traditional, combat modified American martial art and is a culmination of various martial arts, and gets its roots from: Chinese Gung Fu, Western Boxing, and Fencing.
There are three phases of learning JKD: 1) Sharpening of the tools, where you learn the techniques and the drills; 2) Utilization of the drills, where you learn to use the techniques in actual combat, and 3) Dissolving of the tools, when you have combinations and techniques down so well, they become instinct.

 PSDTC - Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do Terminology
These are the most common Chinese words used in the Jeet Kune Do classes at the Practical Self Defense Training Center as I learned it from both Sifu Dan Inosanto and Sifu Larry Hartsell.
This is done to keep his Chinese heritage alive in Jeet Kune Do due to the fact that many Chinese martial arts were researched by Bruce Lee at the beginning of the evolution of his ideas that put his Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do fighting method together.
All students in the study of Jeet Kune Do at the Practical Self Defense Training Center should know these terms to understand the “style” completely along with its historic value.
