Well firstly, JKD isnt about Bruces thought or ideas. Its about expressing the self through action. The freedom of choice an of knowing the self. Its about simplification and returning to original freedom.

The most important aspect of it is knowing the self. Realizing that nothing is more important than the self.

You don't "have" JKD. It is not something that can be had.

Why wouldnt we? Even Bruce said himself that JKD is nothing new. Nothing he ever said was original, it was all said before, he simply made it mainstream.

The art of Jeet Kune Do is simply to simplify.

clever philosophical response: "that's for you to figger out." Serious answer? In the 1960's a man named Bruce lee developed theories of a scientific approach to street fighting. Unfortunately, he died, and jkd was left as his unfinished symphony. Ever since, people have been continuing his journey in their own unique way. We study what he studied, and we take the advice he left, but eventually we must all rise above his written words and begin discovering on our own, our own truths of combat.

JKD "is" the pursuit of truth as it applies to fighting. Not theoretical postulation mind you, but what YOU (the individual) have determined through experience, the truth to be.

Lee said, "research your OWN experience..."

That's where you find the truth. Now the question becomes, HOW does one research his/her own experience and WHERE does one do the research?

Any takers???

Everywhere, without exclusion or cessation.

I tend to have a deeper meaning of these things, because i appreciate the philosophical part of it in my everyday life.

Even Bruce did a lot more than just act and spar in MA.

But there was another part to the question. HOW do we research our "own experience, as Bruce Lee advised?
