First of all hello evry1 this is my first post, just want to say Iíve been training JKD really hard for almost a year now, before that some ITF TKD,
Anyway, some important points here,
Big guys usually have poor footwork, and soul of JKD is footwork, without it everything else is useless, fast small guys are usually more dangerous,
When the real fight comes you have to be very calm, like nothing is about to happen, if you got nervous, EVRYTHING you know is worthless, this is something you can not learn in class but must acquire over lifetime, Bruce Lee had several dozens of fights when a teenager, so experience is so important, in other words you must spar, spar a lot,
And to finish my rumbling, someone said sticky hands are useless in real fight, well actually they are exercises meant to develop sensitivity in the hands not actual fighting tools for the street.

Hi Folks,
You guys talk about almost all martial arts but there is one form of Martial Arts in Kerala, India and that is called Kalari. Once you attend the highest level of skills and if the master finds you are the right person, he then teaches you a skill (a deadly skill) called the Varma kalai.
It deals with Human nervers and teaches how to bring a person to an unconsious state with just hitting the appropriate nerve in the person's body with just a finger.It is so deadly that it can even be used to kill a human.Its also used to cure nervous ailments and so on.
So guys, I personally feel you have to learn this type of skill after specializing in any form of martial Art and if you really think you are the right person not to misuse it.
With this type of skill aquired, you can challenge any brawler or any macho man for that matter.

the basic chinese priniciple about all things and elements in the universe is they exist through harmony. harmony refers to two interdependent forces moving without cessation. no one extreme can survive. the strongest tree is most easily cracked. the country's toughest brawler needs to remember that.
be firm, not hard. this is best explained by illustrating a chain which is firm but not hard.

when one fights they should fight as though they have nothing to lose. fight without the fear of losing your life, this will eliminate any final hindrance on the mind.

a good JKD fighter, once on the street, stays in harmony with his opponent. he does not send out weapons, the weapons send out themselves accordingly. this only comes through years of practice.

Those big "brawlers" youre talking about thats not skill all that is is a learned response from countless fights in the street an back alleys, and yes trapping DOES work if you limit yourself to the basics when youre dealing with a big puncher or a boxer .I am speaking from experience all the muscle in the world and the hot temper in the world wont help him if you break his kneecap or his shin bone , or even use a destruction on the hand with an elbow( a fav of mine). Temper doesnt mean skill or strenght it means no self control , just dont let it intimidate you.

Have you not watched World's Wildest Street Fights 1 & 2? It is the most laughable thing out there! 90% of punches are telegraphed haymakers, none of them know what to do on the ground, even when on top, and none of their punches have any power behind them. Street fighting for the most part is a joke.

There's nothing wrong with eye goggles as at LEAST you'll have to fire on an alive, moving opponent. Forget about the jab bags.

I would limit the time spent on such practice as well. Work your JAB (punch) WAY more than your eye jab. If you can land the jab, you'll be able to land the eye jab.

Just keep in mind that the eye jab is TREMENDOUSLY overrated as a fighting tool.

I disagree john im my experience the eye jab is a great fighting tool, and its just as fast if not faster than the jab, remember its only meant as a feeler or distraction and everytime i have used it i get the reaction i need, it can be used to blind someone or take out an eye if you condition your fingers though, alot of the old time wing chun fighter in hong kong reportedly used to do it alot, keep the jab bag to condition your fingers.

I agree with straightblast. An eyegouge done right is fast and hard to defend. If opens the street fighter up for more attacks. Street fights are usually large haymakers, and unintelligent punches being thrown at will. I KNOW that trapping and the chi sao range is perfect. If your dojo is throwing out chi sao because you believe it isn't effective then I feel truely sorry for your misleading sifu. He must not have really ever been taught correctly. Chi sao is in every fight! whether you know that or not.

so many don't seem to understand the concepts and principles behind chi sao or other wing chun/jkd drills, this is why you make ignorant comments about trying to fight "with" chi sao...and equally ignorant comments about elbow positions
