    Customized Martial Art for Boxer

    You said boxing for several years. To better understand your question, what level of boxing did you compete at? Are you a casual, or did you frequent tournaments and have a good amount (over 20) of am fights already in boxing? I ask because boxing is relevant in most combat sports, so you're be...

    Body method

    Agree with the method. We tend to break down all our techs this way and train the segments. Then put them together and progress into movement.

    JKD Question

    Yes, he did. And Fook Yeung, Wally Jay, Ed Parker, Hayward Nishioka, Jhoon Rhee, and others.

    700 Lb bag

    Sheesh... would probably take a few people just to get it up I imagine. I wonder what that bag would feel like on the bottom after the inside has settled over time. Probably would be foot or fist breaking brick. I will have to get one of these eventually... when i have 3k to waste on a bag lol.

    700 Lb bag

    I see that. Maybe that supplier only has the 500. Looking at the manufacturer directly, they definitely have the 750 as advertised along with a 650 size and going on down. https://www.prolast.com/prolast-750-lb-heavy-punching-bag-made-in-usa/

    This statement is my personal opinion based on my experience. IMHO there's some qualifiable technical similarities dependant on what is compared. There are variables between WC lineages as to how some moves are interpreted, and then of course there are variations to the moves themselves. But...

    700 Lb bag

    https://www.fightshop.com/prolast-750-lb-boxing-mma-heavy-punching-bag-made-in-usa/ Prolast makes this one at 750lbs. 50lbs heavier than Bruce's old bag. I think it would be interesting to train on something this size and try to move that beast. I've heard there are a few bags around 300lbs in...

    Lot of similarities between Rapier dagger and BJD, much like there are alot of similarities between WC and John L. Sullivan era boxing. I think the underlining premise is the driving principles of implementation and Lee's sources for them.

    Customised Form

    Sorry, i misspoke. The form I was trying to refer to is called Siu Lim. You're right, Dia Lim Tau is Gulo.

    Customised Form

    Since they qualify, I learned several San Sau over the years that more or less relate back to the main forms but better address practicality. When I was learning I always broke up the movements into smaller few move segments anyway. Often reversed moves and played around with it all in lut sau...

    I think Bruce moved away from the BJD and toward the Italian Rapier in the later development.

    JKD Question

    In my humble opinion, take it for what its worth ($0.02)... I don't believe so. This may go against the grain of what everyone else probably says but the art's principles are based on a specific set of bladed weapon arts. Throughout its refinement this never stopped being the case, so any...

    Why did I automatically think you were talking about biu jeeand the actual throwing darts , lol. CMA is extremely expensive for quality teaching, definitely.

    I see you with the inverse analogy there. You're right, that is a point to be made. If 1 human being had the capacity to actually scoop up all the techniques in 1 lifetime maybe. Even still, I think that person will still go through the same stage of refinement/reduction, so ending in the same...

    lol, love that! I was taking stance against your "accumulation of forms until infinity" point tho. That actually does not follow the principle of Do/Dao.

    Does anyone make a small steel shot bag for hand training?

    i have a wallbag with steel shot. Its essentially the same thing, just mounted on a solid wall.

    There are several videos online of the form. None of Bruce himself doing the form as he tended to showcase those forms that were visually impressive to land his roles. But yes, the form does mean 5 gates and its (edit: PRINCIPLES) borrowed from WC. Other styles refer to them differently, but...

    The Miraculous Power of Fasting

    Apologies if this seems pessimistic in an way, but are there any scientific journals that anyone knows of that have confirmed the stem cell production at 72-75hrs?

    I'm good, thanks. A google query on enlightenment brought me here of all things Lol. Hope you've been well. As for the form, it was both before and after. Jesse trained at a time before Bruce coined the term... Howard, after he coined the term. But in both cases, they both recognized that they...

    Hey Xue, This actually isn't true. Bruce Lee did indeed create the Ng Mun form. It was his synopsis on Wing Chun SLT as he struggled to teach early Wing Chun principles without forms, to North American newbie students (to gung fu) with no idea of what it was. Not only was Ng Mun a form that...

    Where can you learn JKD online?

    I would also recommend Tommy Carruthers online JKD club that MASponge1 mentioned. As someone who's personally completed the lessons and also trained with all of the other various branches/styles of JKD available in CA (there are many), I would even go as far as to say that it is singlehandedly...

    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...

    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?
