    Instead of buying the e-book, all the information that Big Sean was posting, the EXACT information is coming from this site:

    http://www.geocities.com/hellasjeetkunedo/?20069

    You can get more than 35 pages worth right there! This site is an abundant source of Jeet Kune Do material. Very useful and information. Also, check out the Jeet Kune Do Library on that site too! Great site!

    Hi,

    Just as a point of fact, that website that Michael posted took just about all of that information from my old website. "I" was the source of the info, the creator of that site just copied/pasted the info that he stole from me.

    I don't care really, the information is out there as it should be, but I do NOT want people to think that I ripped off that guy, when it was the other way around.

    If there is any questions to this, please feel free to call me at: 917-509-9008.

    Thanks,

    BIG Sean Madigan

    I can vouch for Sean - I saw his website when he had that info originally. Plus, Sean just doesn't roll that way.

    I'd also like to see some of Simplicity's Jun Fan input. I know Big Sean covered it really good but we all walk a differant path and it's always good to read the differances and similarities that we share.

    - Jun so Tek ?

    Entries:
    Biu Gee - Chop Choy - Gua Choy -> fingers to eyes - straight punch - backfist? good?

    Stance:
    Yee Chi Kim Young Ma ?
    Bi joung ?
    Right lead & left lead ?

    Defense:
    peek a boo ?
    duck ?
    sway back ?
    slip left ?
    slip right ?

    Trapping:
    Ping Choy ?
    Jik gern ?

    Ung Moon:

    I hope there is someone who can tell me more about them.

    Richard Bustillo IMB Academy Phase Training

    There was never a real syllabus that was taught to anyone person, you was always taught in ranges, and you just used what you wanted to teach in each phase. Sifu Bustillo teaches 1-3 phases at his school in California. What he taught was never fixed in any real order. Like JKD he just went with the flow.


    Basic outline
    (Close range) Close range grappling system/program. The highly effective art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Shooto wrestling, catch as catch can wrestling, Judo and Jujitsu gives a wide variety of position and submission training methods, which strengthen an individual's ability to defend themselves from the ground and standing.

    (Middle range) Muay Thai Boxing and Western Boxing includes the development of an individual's personal weapons, emphasizing punch, kick, elbow, knee coordination and evasive body movements for an effective defense

    (Long range) Weaponry self-defense from the Filipino Martial Arts of Kali, Arnis, Escrmia, featuring single and double stick coordination drills that provide a better awareness towards the various angles of offense, defense, and counters & recounters.

    The Kali / Eskirma / Arnis syllabus; at IMB Academy consists of the fundamental basic coordination and exercises for twirling, angling, footwork for defense, offence and counter techniques. The intermediate stage continues with the lines of attack for the numbering system of many different styles of KEA for defence and disarming techniques. Pormas or forms are added to enhance weapon control and handling. Advance stage is the sparring training of single or multiple attacks. Weapons against empty hand sparring is also introduced at this level


    (Self-discovery range) Jeet Kune Do is the philosophies, concepts and training methods of Bruce Lee - increasing an individual's awareness through the understanding of their own personal abilities and limitations

    There are 4 phases of self-preservation training: in Progressive Fighting Systems

    Phase One: A general conditioning and general awareness phase. 70% of the training is Jun Fan Kickboxing ( Bruce's kickboxing method). The other 30 % is divided between Trapping, standing grappling, ground grappling, single stick and single knife training. The goal during this phase of training is to develop the students attributes and overall awareness. There is alot of light contact sparring and use of training equipment. This phase of training lasts 6 to 12 months.

    Phase Two- This phase of training focuses specifically on Jun/Fan Trapping methods and various close quarter fighting methods, numerous drills from Wing Chun, Kali, Escrima, Silat and several forms of Kung Fu are incorporated into various trapping drills and combinations.
    Students learn specific trapping drills for boxers, kick boxers, as well as karate and kung-fu practitioners. Eventually, the training session leads up to a point where students will spar in the trapping range with bag gloves and head gear. Students will still practice Jun Fan kickboxing. However students spar more intensively.
    Additionally, the students will learn how to set up their kick and punches through the use of strategy (what Bruce Lee called the Five ways of Attack: 1. single Direct Attack, 2. Attack by Combination, 3. Attack by Drawing, 4. Progressive Indirect Attack, 5. Hand and Foot Immobilization Attack.) Adding to the physical portion of the training, students will also learn how to control their emotions during this phase. They will learn how to turn on and off certain emotions specific to trapping. The trapping phase is the heart and soul of JKD. It is a range which most people feel uncomfortable. Phase two training will last 6 to 12 months.


    Phase Three- This phase of training focuses on the stick and knife fighting methods from the Philippines. The training curriculum involves single and double stick, single and double knife training, espada y daga (stick and knife). students will spar stick to stick, stick to knife, knife to knife, empty hand to stick and empty hand to knife. students will continue to practice Jun/Fan kickboxing and Jun Fan trapping. The intensity of the drills and sparring will increase. This Phase will last 6 to 12 months.The Philipino Art comes from Inosanto/Kali.


    Phase Four- This phase of training focuses on standing grappling and ground fighting, as well as the integration of all ranges. Once proficiency is achieved in each range of fighting the student must now integrate the different ranges:

    kicking vs. Boxing
    Boxing vs. trapping
    Trapping vs. grappling
    Grappling vs. stick fighting
    Stick fighting vs. knife fighting
    Knife fighting vs. kick boxing
    Kina Mutai (Biting, slapping, spitting, gauging, jerking, etc) against Ground Grappling.
    Students must also incorporate environmental training. students will grapple on cement or concrete and asphalt, kick box in stair wells and slippery grass etc. mass attack with and without weapons. Students will learn to flow from one range to the other without thought. this is where it all comes together. Training will last 9 to 12 months.
    By the end of the 4 phases of training each student has hundreds of hours sparring in each range of fighting. they have sparred against partners who were bigger stronger, Faster, more explosive, weaker, slower, some with awkward timing some who are uncoordinated, some with experience and some without now you will have this broad base of experience upon which you can confidently say " I know by experience what works for me and what does not!! You now can apply Bruce Lee's greatest concept : Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is specifically your own" . Endest the sermon.
    The JKD we do is not just for fighting anyone can fight and be a hoodlum or punk you most have principle and a philosophy behind an art, because that's what sets us apart from the hoodlums and punks of society.

      Strategies ad training methods from Western Boxing, Muay Thai, savate, Filipino Arts and Kickboxing.​
      <LI class=style5>
      Pad training - utilising the use of focus pads, Thai pads, kick shields, various punch bags including 5 foot and 6 foot thai bags, 300lb kick bag, uppercut bags etc. All of the aforementioned equipment aids in the developments of attributes such as timing, power, conditioning, combinational techniques and stamina.​
      <LI class=style5>
      Cardiovascular/flexibility training - Dynamic, passive stretching along with much famed P.N.F flexibility program. ​
      <LI class=style5>
      Jump rope training, shadowboxing and circuit training program etc.​
    • functional sparring - utilising the skills acquired within the pad/bag training program whilst adhering to the understanding of tactical and strategic guidelines.​
    Grappling/Groundwork
    • <LI class=style5>
      Holds and control​
      <LI class=style5>
      Cokes, strangles, locks, submission/finishing techniques​
      <LI class=style5>
      positional flow drills​
      <LI class=style5>
      Kicking and punching on the ground​
      <LI class=style5>
      kicking from the ground​
    • Comparisons of techniques - positional submission fighting using ground fighting skills utilised from Brazilian ju-jitsu, combat submission wrestling, ju-jitsu, shoot wrestling, vale tudo etc.​
    Standing grappling/Throws/Takedowns
    • <LI class=style5>
      Removal of opponents base by throws and takedowns​
      <LI class=style5>
      Control and clinch work​
    • Standing locks, manipulations and bone levers​
    Trapping/Sensitivity/Response-Reaction
    • Within this range we use 2 methods of training - Bruce Lee's method (circa 1966) and the filipino method. Either method has variable approach but is taken in a different perspective. With Bruce Lee's method you would learn primarily to immobilise the opponent in order to control the centerline. Within the filipino method you would be more concerned with destroying the limbs while moving to an advantageous position.​
    Note
    • We also have many aspects from other foundation arts such as Muay Thai Boxing, Wing Chun Kuen, Filipino/Kali Weaponry, Sombo Wrestling, Silat, Doce Pares, Eskrima, Judo, Ju-Jitsu, Capoeria and Karate​
    Therefore our primary objective is the willingness to research the martial arts, in order to adapt to any combat range that is required.

    The Beginning Praying Mantis Harmonious Spring Energy Drill

    Position:
    This drill starts with both practitioner's facing each other with your training partner's hand's placed on the outside of your forearms which are held open and in an upward 45* angle in a praying position.

    Method of training
    How the drill is performed is, your partner will pull down on both of your forearms to open up your centerline. Then he will try to touch your forehead with both hands. You control his energy by springing upward controling the centerline and counter with you touching his forehead in return. The trainee must keep contact with the trainer's arms at all times.

    One Hand Harmonious Spring Energy Drill
    The trainer has the inside of his forearm touching the outside of the trainee's arm. The trainer will then pull downward on the trainee's arm to open the centerline. The trainee neither resists the pull nor loosely goes with it rather he imagines a spring being stretched between his bicep and forearm and counter's the attempt.

    Bridging in Praying Mantis
    1. As the trainer slides his arm forward to punch, the trainee deflects the punch by bridging forward with a (biu jee) finger jab to the forehead.
    2. This time the trainee uses a (tan sao) palm up block to bridge
    3. This time the trainee uses a (boang sao) elbow up block, but without the waist twist to develop proper arm position.

    There are many variations to this energy drill, and it is used in many Chinese systems to help develop energy and sensitivity to the arms...

    Hey nubreed, I was just curious. I seen you posted Ted Wongs curriculum. I thought Wong "threw out" the Wing Chun curriculum because that is what Bruce did before he died. Just wondering.

    Kennth Ku wrote: "While I am showing off my knowledge in Cantonese, "Jun Fan Gung Fu" means Chinese American Martial Art. "Jun" refers to China. The Chinese used to think they were the center of the world (which they were at one point, since every empire has its days.) , hence they referred to China as the Middle Kingdom, which the word "JUN" means Middle. "FAN" refers to all the non-Chinese barbarians outside the Middle Kingdom. lol . "Jun Fan Gung Fu" is not traditional Chinese martial art."

    The above quote from Kenneth Ku is actually embarrassing, because unless one sees the actual characters, it's a baaad idea to simply translate from a phonetic transliteration. "Chung Kuo" is the most common western transliteration of "Central Kingdom/Territory," the traditional Chinese term for China. "Jun Fan," Bruce Lee's given name, simply means "Returns Again." My understanding is that since he was born in San Francisco on a family trip, that they though he would be back here some day.

    I’m not sure what Kenneth Ku was showing off, but it sure wasn’t his Cantonese skills – or lack thereof. Steve, you are closer to the mark, however “Return Again” is a common but inaccurate translation of Jun Fan (&#25391;&#34281;). The word Fan (&#34281;) is a straight derivation from San Francisco (&#19977;&#34281;&#24066;: Sam Fan Si), which in itself is a phonetic derivation from the English/Spanish "San Francisco". This is of course because he was born there and his parents believed he would return there. The possible confusion resulting in the “return again” translation is the fact that Fan (&#36820;), meaning “return” sounds similar to Fan (&#34281;), at least to non-Chinese speakers.

    As for Jun (&#25391;), it’s just a name, like “Peter” is. It could have been chosen for auspicious reasons, as is common in the Chinese culture, or simply because his parents liked it. According to Wikipedia, Bruce’s grandfather’s given name was Jun-Biu (&#38663;&#24426;), and that originally Bruce’s name Jun Fan, was written with the same first character as &#38663;&#34281; but changed the first character to the homonym &#25391; in order to avoid naming taboo in Chinese tradition. I’ve not heard that Bruce’s name Jun Fan was originally &#38663;&#34281;, and I’m quite the Bruce Lee trivia buff. Regardless, it’s certainly plausible and true in Chinese culture, but that is not to say that Bruce was named after his grandfather, because that is certainly not common in Chinese culture – it flies right in the face of the naming taboo mentioned above.

    I believe that should clear this up :)

    Peace from Hong Kong
