Tao of JKD is a great book. You can get a better insight into JKD and its philosophy. It also shows you some of the mechanics for doing certain kicks and punches with more power and effectiveness. You'll find the book great.

you say you train in jkd but if you knew what lee was trying to teach, it is that jkd isn't a style or method. Jeet kune do is a way of total physical fitness and a way to become good in the combat arts. He taught how to train physical aspects of your body but the only training of martial arts was that you should use any combat move that is useful to you. He taught not to choose a style, but to take the useful and discard the useless.

the tao of jkd is just a collection of thoughts and ideas bruce lee was going through at the time anything from boxing to fencing there are a lot of references to fencing in there and well as boxing wich was taking out of an army boxing manual a lot of what was in there was of course bruce lees own notes of wich some were found crumpled up in a drawer typical of him eh ?...think thats in the front of the book somewhere .

ive read the book myself and taken what i needed out of it so take what you need dont worship it and like his wife linda said after youve read it use the pages for the bottom of your birdcage

jase

please pardon my incoherence and poor penmanship .

The great thing with the Tao of JKD is that i just keep going back to it. It has a lot of good philosophies in it, and has lots of good information. The only bad thing i can see with it is that a lot of it is in Cantonese, which is fine if you can read Cantonese, but if you can't (most of us), then you will probably miss out on quite a bit of information.
