    Getting back into Martial Arts and thinking about Jeet Kune Do

    Hi MonkeyWolf, I train JKD and have done so for a little while. I also train Wing Chun. Maybe my $0.02 can be of help. I agree on there being 2 main schools of thought, but not on your descriptions. In my experience most don't really attribute the lineage that's other than Inosanto, to Jerry...

    A nice display of Miao Dao

    Lovely to see the gung fu interpretation of this historic weapon.

    JKD without Wing Chun?

    The name of who he trained under in the US; Fook Yeung. You can verify his relationship with the Lee's, that he was a Hei Ban sifu, and that he taught Bruce.

    JKD Chi Sao Vs. Wing Chun Chi Sao

    Ok, I didn't realize the emphasis of the starting position. So are you saying that by starting chi sau in any position other that YJKYM, one is no longer practicing WC?

    JKD without Wing Chun?

    Actually Wingchun100, there are several sources who state that Bruce completed his WC training in Seattle, under the tutelage Fook Yeung in Hei Ban Wing Chun.

    An interesting article on Chi-Sau

    I respect your opinion but I don't follow the logic. How is fook and tan an inferior dominated position? It can be directly equated to an overhook and an underhook in pummeling. It is what you make of it. I think what you are inferring to is a leveraged position that is 50/50. But pummeling...

    An interesting article on Chi-Sau

    Interesting, because Lee was teaching and working chi sau with John Saxton and others on the set of Enter the Dragon which was the early 70's just before his death. Why would that be if he had abandoned it as you say? Because he still saw value in it and trained it. As for Tackett's WNG, they...

    JKD Chi Sao Vs. Wing Chun Chi Sao

    I see. So are you saying in your WC chi sau you never use your legs? Or that you've only done chi sau in YJKYM and not in any of the other stances in WC/VT?

    Sorry, I just saw this and cleaned it up.

    An interesting article on Chi-Sau

    The same can really be said of clinch work, as not all clinch work is created equal. The objective of the plum is not to tie up and exchange, it's to strike dominating the center and interior position, much like chi sau. So I would posit that it's directly comparable. There are multitudes of...

    JKD Chi Sao Vs. Wing Chun Chi Sao

    And it will most likely be different with every person you train with. Just like different WC/VT lineages chi sau differently. That doesn't quantify a JKD approach, as there is no such thing.

    An interesting article on Chi-Sau

    Fair enough. I am of the accord of LFJ in that i agree more sparring may be needed, but not that it's more important or higher yielding. In contrast to Muay Thai, most big gyms in Bangkok spend just as much time in clinch work as they do the sparring, which I would say is comparable to chi sau...

    He does give explanation for the differences in the above interview. What is your take on his explanation in that interview? And where might we verify the common belief behind Chan Yiu Min?

    Wing Chun Forms Origin

    For all my Ip Man lineagers, just curious if anyone has experience with the Chan Wah Sun Ancestral temple in Shunde? Its understood that Ip Man's reductionist ideology (among others) lead to his changes in the forms, but the SLT practiced in Shunde seems to be much larger and is said one of many...
