Depends on the practitioner and so on...............

Stay away from the word 'better'. Also if one was able to address the question,Ayub JKD is different from person to person so can't be compared to anything as a whole anyways.

each persons diffrent. so you can't say one style is better than the other they all have good points and bad points.just say both fighters are perfect in there style, take away the hands of both oponents and i'd say the tkd fighter would have a good chance of winning, take away the legs the jkd figher would have a good chance of winning. who knows?

I'm not going into the whole style-slanting deal, God knows we have all had our share of that, but...

In a mixed martial arts competition, given that the two practitioners are at the same level of their styles, and relatively same physical condition, Jeet Kune Do would make a mockery out of Tae Kwon Do.

As a former TKD artist before moving to JKD, I agree. My TKD was very, very good, but nothing like my JKD training. However, a real JKD guy isnt going to enter a contest with rules as it goes against his style.

Although it does come down to the individual, let's just say my money would be on the JKD guy.

The polar bear from the zoo, because it is so pissed of and it lets all the aggression out on the wild polar bear. Also in the zoo it had plenty of time to practice martial arts because food was handed to it :-)

I take the notion that a JKD practitioner should be able to fight in ANY environment. That would mean, he should be able to fight with rules or WITHOUT rules and be able to perform just as well.

It would be a silly notion to say, "well, I can't fight well within the rules because I would get my butt kicked. But without rules, watch out".

That wouldn't make any sense. If you can't fight within the rules, you'll not do any better when there aren't any. I just don't buy the notion that "rules" have any influence on one's ability to "perform". If you can perform, you can perform and it doesn't matter what environment you're performing within. A JKD fighter is supposed to be adaptable to any and every circumstance anyway.

Some would argue (and I would be one of them) that many of fighters within the UFC are already "JKD" guys.


As far as TKD having any success; any "pure" TKD fighter wouldn't have much of a chance.
