The school where I train (Jun Fan Gung Fu / Jeet Kune Do)teaches strong side forward. Keep the most devestating weapons ( your strong side ) close to the target. Makes sense. Why pepper some one with shots when you can just drill them with one hit?

Walt

You are a grade five joker! There is a stance by the way. Who gave you this grade might I ask, clown college?

I thought JKD didn't really have a belt rank/system its either you are a certified instructor or you're not, now they do have stages or level of instructors. And maybe that's what you meant a 5th degree black belt equilivelant.

Usually it taught strong side forward like most Chinese systems. Joe Lewis disagrees with this because of his kicking boxing experience but obviously couldn't or didn't convince Bruce Lee of this.

with all due respect to lee and jkd, i think that commiting yourself to one stance will cause a dependancy on certain positions of opponents, ie if you fight southpaw you may be disoriented by someone coming at you orthodox. in my humble opinion, as a snowboarder and MAist, it's best to learn to flow both ways as equally as possible. if your right leg is your power leg, work on building up that left.

Most BJJ schools teach the strong side forward method as well to enable getting to the clinch faster. However, as its been said, you must be able to work both sides effectively. Your dominant hand might be busy doing other things at the time, like carrying groceries, or recovering from injury. Theres a million things that could go wrong so you must have adequate backup.

bruce used to preach, put your strong side forward. although as a wing chin practitioner, he was taught to use both sides equally. your lead kick should be used the same as a jab in boxing because its the longest weapon aimed at the closest target, to get to me you have to move to me using your legs. cross the gap with the low side kick then make contact and follow up with your hands and contact reflexes. then flow like water.

I am not a JKD but a karateka. I am a southpaw and fight left side forward. This started primarily because most MA are right handed and I fell into their stance when sparing. But I have discovered that it works well for me. I like having my "power" up front. My left jab is more coordinated and stronger than my right and my left front kick is more powerful as well.

What I have found is my right side is faster and more flexible, so the power is kind of balanced, if that makes sense. I can throw a right leg rear roundhouse faster than I can a left leg rear roundhouse, so a strong side forward stance works well for me.

Also, I have more control with my strong side forward. By control, I mean parrying, blocking, trapping.

I go back and forward whatever makes my opponent the most unconfortable, naturally I am (right hand) strong side forward, because of the obvious reason, but I've notice once I step in or if he moves in I go to orthodox, then back to right lead if I get some space.

Left hand fighters don't present the problem they do to a boxer or ordothodox, because we are use to working with both.
