Jeet Kune Do

 

Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do is not a fixed style; its a Concept & Philosophy

Jeet Kune Do

Associated with Jerry Poteet’s Jeet Kune Do Association (JPJKD), teaching Bruce Lee’s JKD.

Jeet Kune Do is Simply to Simplify – Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do is style of no style, it’s a concept and philosophy. Jeet Kune Do (the way of the intercepting fist) is the art of intercepting. Bruce Lee was way ahead of his time – cross training in different arts was unheard of in 1960s & 1970s, before MMA was even popular .

Jeet Kune Do is more of set of principles and training methods that encourage the student to develop your own fighting style. Bruce Lee studied Wing Chun for several years under Grandmaster IP MAN. After the famous fight with Wong Jack Man , Bruce believed that marial art styles had become too rigid and not realistic and that martial arts should evolve , and real fighting is unpredictable and spontaneous.

He taught that a good martial artist should ” be like water.” Bruce Lee researched various arts incorporating principles and training methods from other arts into the system Wing Chun , Fencing , Western Boxing. Bruce Lee never wanted to put a name to his art after much deliberation Jeet Kune Do was coined in 1967. Jeet Kune Do has four guiding principles: -Simplicity -Economy of motion -Longest weapon to the nearest target -Always thinking of hitting.
