I know Bruce utilized kicks more after he started working with Chuck Norris. At least according to Chuck.I am also sure Bruce borrowed things from TKD, but not much.

I think it was TSD but it was also at a time when there was a move to rename all Korean styles TKD, so it's a bit blurry. However, Bruce also trained with Jhoon Rhee, the 'Father of American TKD' who has written a book about his relationship with Lee.

my own opinion on his kicks i don't think tkd influenced him much at all for example there's only so many simple kicks and i think they pretty much look the same in alot of styles. i mean his main kick was a side kick and i don't think any style made up a sidekick it's just always been existent. people could use a sidekick way before people even knew what martial arts were perhaps it wouldn't be as high or fast but it would still be a sidekick none the less. really i'm just saying you don't need to learn martial arts to know how to do a front or sidekick it's just common sense and natural. people focus on what art he practiced the most or what was his core or whatever that doesn't even have anything to do with what jkd is about. you can be a karate and aikido master and if you modify and simplify your styles and fuse them at least what works best out of them then you'd basicly be doing jkd. jkd is a philosophy not a style wing chun just happen to be what lee had alot of training in it could have been anything and it would have still been jkd it just happened to be wing chun that he had proper training in. anyways if i went way off topic forgive me i don't really post all that much and get carried away sometimes. i have to feel my posting need. ok well that's some of my opinion on it and jkd ok peace.

God said, "Let there be sidekicks"; and there were sidekicks. And God saw that the sidekicks were good

Just like no style "made up" punching or grappling or any form of anything else.

They were all around BEFORE "STYLES".

But some "styles" have come to do them differently(more effectively?) than others.

yes?

Sure everyone does things a little differently. But sometimes that just means that they either do them a little better or a little worse, lol. Just like you were saying I believe...

Considering that we have only two arms and legs with so many joints, there are only so many different versions of "techniques" don't you think?

There is only one real style in my opinion (the "human style")
