Well, jkd is different for everyone, so I wouldn't doubt that at all. The fact is you can defend yourself without ever throwing a kick. When they do kick, its generally low, say to the groin or shin. And its generally used to either;

A)Bridge the gap

or

B)Stop hit

I am. I use only about three different kicks but at different ranges and levels of height. Also Im constantly working on the delivery of them at different angles and in different situations. Nearly all JKD is different from School to school so there is a wide variety of practitioners who's "style" vary greatly.

In my gym my instructor is focusing alot on the trapping range, since all the striking tools can be brought into use at this range.

At this range a kick is rather easily obstructed by putting your leg close to the opponents, leaving no room to kick, enabling you to feel a weight shift, so that a kick can be stopped simply from putting forward pressure on the opponents leg.

I mainly aim my kicks are the knee, groin, shin and thigh to;

1: bridge the gap
2: as a opening for a punch(low-high)
3: stophit and intercept

of course it can be used differently, but this the way I like to do it.
I like to kick as little as possible, as kicking leaves only one foot on the ground(obviously), leaving you more suscepticle(spelling) to sweeps and more likely to be thrown off balance than when throwing a punch.

I hope you have a good instructor because it is very hard to work good trapping into self defense.

i think its more situational, if the two fighters are never in kicking(long range)range, why would they throw the kick?
