#135553 - 10/16/04 07:24 AM what is JKD
Anonymous

lol i know its a martial art, and yes i know about the Tao, and of Bruce lee.
1
but is JKD an actual style with a strict syllabus???? and it is nearly practiced the same at most schools like Karate, TKD, Judo....

2
or is JKD just a philosophy that you should think of to help you train harder and give you advice

3
or is JKD a mix of the practitioners favourite techniques that work for him/her??? like does each person make it up for them selves

because if 3 is correct then how the hell can u learn JKD at a school???, wouldnt u make it up for yourself??? and if 2 is correct then u r either self taught martial artist or u cross train. and if 3 is correct then this forum on JKD is pointless and no1 here studies JKD they study their own JKD

chen zen i think u can answer ma question, lol, its just that i have heard so many different things about JKD and i am not sure if it is a style or a philosophy

-cheers

Forgive the above post. Most of us here just prefer normal english in lieu of computer chat.

As for your question, its more like a combination of all three. JKD does have a curriculum, however, it constantly evolves. No two schools really do the same things. Its all similar but each teacher teaches his own perception of JKD. Thats a problem. JKD wasnt a clear cut black and white system. Bruce created it this way so that the practitioner has room to explore his own needs. JKD is also a philosophy. JKD concepts can be applied to nearly any art. JKD is also a mix of a practitioners favorite techniques. JKD is molded around the student. Not the other way around as in most styles. Each students JKD is different. No two people are alike, no two people live the same lives, and no two people think the same. So each person interprets what they see differently. They use what works for them and they throw away the rest.

JKD IS A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT MADE UP BY BRUCE LEE TO REMAIN A MYSTERY TO EVERYONE. JOE LEWIS EVEN SAID HE WAS CONSTANTLY CHANGING THE MEANING OF JKD.

JKD is just a simple philosophy that governs one's training.

How concepts of "economy of motion", daily decrease, etc be declared bull**** is beyond me -- but that's exactly what the person above me just posted.

It's clear you have ZERO knowledge of what the hell you're speaking of bro.

Yeah, he did, whe nhe got more excperience he changed it. He made it better. So what is someone is making his own art better? Isn't that the idea? Seems like you blame him for making jkd better.

He sent Joe Lewis to tournaments to try different things, to see if they were effective, then get back to him.
