    That is why so many people have failed to understand what Jeet Kuno Do is really all about or even understand Bruce Lee himself.

    Like I said in an earlier post reply some people get it, some people don't! ;)

    Its a learning curve, "The Ability To Read The Fight" not walk into a fight blindly but emotionally aware have all senses active so to speak.

    "Thought Processes in Brain Functions" - Brain Functions: How They Work | Brain Structures | Funderstanding: Education, Curriculum and Learning Resources

    What people don't realize they do this subconsciously anyway but to switch to self-awareness is harder to do and needs practice.

    As they saying goes - "Practice Makes Perfect"!

    Thats how good Bruce Less was a genius at this!

    Better believe it men! ;)

    Its not easy to teach you need to accept the philosophy first and then mentally work it into practical situations.

    Its one of the reasons we have in Wing Chun and JKD various types of sensitivity drills to train the senses and track the movement and using hand eye coordination.

    Its not an easy task to do but over time and practice in sparring it all begins to gel together and you improve your tactical and strategic approach to fighting in competitions or sparring or training etc

    Try it where you train martial arts............

    But read post #22 and #11 and #1 as well.

    Its what you learn in the fight and after the fight, your "Self Analyzing Skills" and development of fighting skills.

    As an example - Listen Carefully to Conor vs Floyd after fight "Self Analyzing Skills" comments............





    Some guys will figure this out eventually and comment it takes awhile though.

    Oh well I tried LoL

    So, this isn't a thread about Bruce Lee? I don't think you're communicating as clearly as you think. Even now I genuinely have no clear idea whether I agree with you or not.

    Because I can't tell who genuinely is honest or not i give it one more shot read the Tao of Jeet Kune Do - Tao of Jeet Kune Do eBook: Bruce Lee: Amazon.com.au: Kindle Store

    Then come back and read post #1, 3, 11 if you are honest if you are "Taking-the-piss" well that is on you, to be clear! ;)

    Like I said many times some people get it some people don't.

    To understand it you got to swallow it and then eat piece by piece all of Bruce Lees teachings and even the messages in the movie, they are jewels for those that appreciate it.

    Known as "THE ART OF THE FIGHT" hence the title! Okay.

    A similar online post.......... Bruce Lee and the Art of Scientific Street Fighting

    Also this as well........ Fighting without Fighting, from Sun Tzu to Bruce Lee, to You – Sun Tzu Strategies

    and this one ................ Bruce Lee's Discussion With Monk Cut From Enter The Dragon | Bruce Lee Daily

    I don't mind repeat mode for the slow ones but its boring when we could have had some good chats about using these principles coming from different martial art backgrounds but carry on........................

    No, I'm just being obtuse, but I am tracking now. As long as I've been around here, I still often miss where things are posted. I don't intend to read the Tao of Jeet Kun Do, but now that I see this is the JKD forum, it makes perfect sense. :) I hope you find enough JKD practitioners around here to have a good discussion.

    I do like the movies.

    Whilst I did post it in the JKD area there is no reason that you cannot apply this principle to your art and improve your performance and those around you in sparring or competition events etc.

    This was also part of my intent and purpose with the this topic to open a discussion on points addressed in post #1, 3 and 11 and get into good meaty discussion with pics, video, illustrations, articles and documents or books even experiences and feedback.

    But it has not been received well, partly my fault in first post.

    Although I thought people would have a good grasp on Bruce Lees concepts and discuss further from what I posted in the first post.

    Oh well I tried, right! :blackeye:

    I understand how you could think that way because its sounds stupid to take Bruce Lees quotes and intents from movies and train from them.

    But in all JKD linage or circles these are the jewels of what Bruce Lee did to leave his philosophies in books published and movies teachings he produced.








    But in a Forum medium like this its difficult to discuss its to much so forget it!

    Try out JKD in a place near you then come back share your feedback.

    See that video you just posted is hypocritical "preserving bruce lees jKD"

    JKD was meant to never be preserved it was always meant to be changed with the times but now you've got people refusing to change a word of it which is completely against what bruce lee wanted from it

    Ahuh, I see, I took a moment to think about this before shooting from the hip so to speak.

    You state you tried it once, well first that shows it wasn't for you, it also shows you want something quick into the fire so to speak and it also shows you were not patient and willing to develop the attitude and aptitude for JKD, since you also said you hated it.

    Thats exactly what you needed to know about yourself before proceeding so your instructor that day did his job and they seem to have a good system of filtering out who is who.

    Also to give benefit to your point of view I had already studied Wing Chun for 6 years that has given me the upper hand as to what to expect.

    But this thread was not to discuss JKD the actual art but the "ART OF THE FIGHT" from Bruce Lees principles based on post #1, 3, 11 and how to apply in any martial art in sparring or competition and training to improve how to read the fight e.g tactics, reaction times etc and study the fight in the fight and after the fight self assessment and self analyzing skills that will increase your performance and understanding of the martial art you are in now.

    So if you want to join that aspect of the conversation share your constructive feedback by all means.

    You can learn how to "wrap a punching arm" from movie or online clip even if your teacher has not taught you how to do so.
