In my thinking, JKD is the "pursuit of truth in combat".

It's really that simple. Everything else tends to, more or less, describe the nature or qualities that one should have as a fighter. However the very crux of exactly "what is" JKD can be find within that one sentence.

And that one sentence contains a WEALTH of information, if you think it through. In short, the truth is not one's opinion of the truth or, one's theories regarding the truth - but what IS the truth in combat.

And to discover JKD (as it cannot be taught, because it is different for everyone) is to research what this truth is.

How does one go about doing that (again, I'm not looking for Chen Zen's answer)

I think that to describe JKD is in this sentence to...

"Jeet Kune Do IS"

Mind you that I mean it per individual.

And you are right saying that it is finding truth through combat. I just can't state it enough that it is not but one truth... You catch my drift?

I learned techniques from various martial arts, but when I really do get into a fight, I follow the principles of Jeet Kune Do, I try to intercept the attack (counter, as some people might call it) , instead of leaving my self vulnerable by charging towards someone

OK John, everyone say it all at once....

"By training with aliveness, against a resisting opponent"

That way we KNOW what works, instead of just "believing" what works because we train in a "dead" manner without any aliveness.

For BONUS points:

I want to add that we should train in ALL the fighting ranges, using high percentage techniques!

How did I do?

Hmmmm....

"JKD Instructor" or Mr. Mullinax, perhaps you might want to introduce yourself?

Your bio is interesting and you placed your web site (such as it is) in your first two posts on the Fightingarts.com forum.

I would think that someone of your long experience can certainly add to our discussion here rather than coming across as engaging in some type of shabby adversing ploy.

This is an open forum, please feel free to join in.

Thank You, I put my wed address on the forum so if anyone wanted to see if we were what we say we are. After reading a lot of the information from the others, I have found that this forum is the best one around. I am glad to see that so many persons are talking about JKD. Back in the 1970`s we would get a lot of questions from martial arts people about JKD, and would have to prove JKD to a lot of martial art people. I am glad that the light has been open, and people see what JKD is all about. Rick Mullinax

I have been training in JKD and the Fillipino martial arts for about 7 yrs, and one thing JKD is not is a lot of long over used explanations. Jkd was plain and simple Bruces personal expression of the martial arts, yes he used philosophy but that was not the cornerstone of the teachings, i have seen in this an many other forums about there is now "way" of jkd and if your doing this your doing jkd if your doing that your doing jkd.
If you have not attended a qualified school for jkd then you are not doing jkd period there is a curriculum you must learn and there are drills and then the student is guided with suggestions about training and drills and then there is the sparring sessions and in most schools weapons techniques are taught. If you just read the books and see the movies not to sound harsh but you are just using the tactics and techniques basically just tool development your not a self proclaimed jkd "prodigy".
