If its directly from Dan Insanto then I would say yes its effective. Dan Insanto is just one step away from Bruce Lee when it comes to JKD. Dan trained alongside Bruce Lee and they were good friends, so I would definitely say the style is most effective if its under Dan Insanto.
No, as a matter of fact it did. If you read his notes (Tao of JKD) when he lists the "facts of JKD" weight training is listed as one of them. When he talked about the "preliminaires" in that book he said, "Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation". In fact, it was lack of physical fitness (his fight with Wong Jack Man taking way too long) that sparked him into creating JKD and better strength and conditioning methods along with developing his own approach to martial arts.123
