Jeet Kune Do was like the philosophy I was coming up with and then suddenly found all laid out for me. So, yes. I practice it.

I know and PRACTICE JKD. Yes, unlike many here I actually train JKD. There's only a small minority that have a traceable line to Bruce. Now lineage isn't a big deal, nor should it be one. However, with armchair JKD guys running wild on message boards, it's important to be able to discern those that have merit behind their arguments. If what you do violates one of the principles of jkd, yes principles; then you'r not doing it. IF you're inspired by jkd to move in the direction, you're moving, and it really diverges from JKD then call it something else; what's the harm in that? Afraid of not making that quick buck? I respect those that go their own way after having experienced jkd , but more respect to those that give credit for their own personal innovations and giving themselves their due and not hanging onto the jkd name.

What "IS" JKD?

I'll say this much; I can sum it up in ONE sentence.

I have practiced Jeet Kune for 7 years with additional training in my personal favorite form of the art, trapping. JKD is mastering not only the physical forms (fluidity, constant movement, simplistic movement,etc.) but also applying the correct mentality (strategies, tactics, etc.) JKD is a collection of the most effective techniques, with the most effective and intuitive philosophies, and using whatever works. To sum it all up, JKD is the best possible action.

Anyone else care to post their thoughts about what JKD is, aside from Chen Zen (because he's clued in)?

I don't know how you define JKD, because the founder said it was the style with no style. But I guess I could say I practice JKD, because I train with no perticular style or objective, just to get stronger. And basically defining JKD:

"Jeet kune do- the way of the intercepting fist.
Deformed, shapeless, like water. You put it into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle, You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend."

An exact quote from bruce lee himself. That is the only pricible of JKD, IMHO.

It's not the only principle of JKD. The understanding of JKD is a direct intuition of this unity. Truth cannot be perceived until we have come to hill understanding of our selves and our potential. According to Lee, knowledge in the martial arts ultimately means self- knowledge.

One of the main principle or concept (I would call them guidelines) is:

- Use what is most effective and suits your
unique characteristics the best.

Then you have the following:

- Simplicity: Use your body the most
effective way, spare your energy, thus use
only movement that are effective. Hack away
all, extra's that are not usefull for you.

"Take what you can use, discard all the rest and make it your own"

- To be bound by no style and in combat to
use no style as style, to use no way as
way, to use no system as system. to have no
limitation as your limit. Thus to free
yourself from singleminded view (also
helpfull throughout your entire life).

Now to come back to why I called the "principles", guidelines...

The knowledge derived from any one field can help the individual in every other field. In other words, the principles of Jeet Kune Do involve using certain ideas, techniques and approaches to life whenever appropriate (And fit for you only, thus they are guidelines).

Anyone have a comment on this?
