    I would say I see the opposite. It is the aggregate of all three so it is a blend of styles. More style, not less.

    Okay. I'm not sure I agree, but I can get on board with your definition for the discussion.

    It's unusual for a system that has kicks, but "abnormal" and "normal" seem to imply a judgment. I'm not sure one is necessary. If the system works without them, then it's fine to not have them. Me? I'd like to have those kicks, even if they weren't part of the style I trained in.

    I agree in part, I would say, a commonality of the 3 styles, for example techniques that can be found in Daito ryu, Aikido, Hapkido, yes it would be the blending element that someone like JKD would assimilate into THEIR style, so Kung fu Wang would be correct in saying E= all styles, all styles =no style except it would be their own style Imo. Hope that came out as I meant.

    We learn styles, but then everyone has his own style or “no style”. In competition, there are limitations but every individual is still different.
