Hi, I'm new to these forums and seeking some advice. My ultimate goal as a martial artist is to become a Jeet Kune Do expert. But I don't want to take a formal class for it. Instead, I want to study a variety of other martial arts and combine all their best aspects to create my own interperatation of Jeet Kune Do. I currently have experience in some great defense drills, basic kicking and punching techniques, and some breathing techniques...In a few months I am starting Wing Chun classes to improve my speed with my hands/arms. I have heard that the northern styles of kung fu focus on the legs and kicking, and I've been wondering which style would be best for me. I've heard of Northern Praying Mantis and Mei Hua Quan. Any advice for which style I'm looking for? I've looked on Wikipedia and seen that there are MANY kung fu styles. Just trying to narrow things down a little. Thanks in advance.
