It is true that Bruce did not finish study of the entire classical Yip Man wing chun system before coming to US. Bruce developed some effective modifications of wing chun that I doubt Hawkins has any experience with. Some of these mods directly oppose and circumvent classical wing chun theory. To my knowledge only a few of Bruce's first students have demonstrated experience of this. I believe Hawkins conclusions would be different if he touched hands with them. A couple key points to remember are that Bruce was mainly interested in winning, and that he was not always open with people (including students) about what he knew how to do. (also posted in jkd forum)

Here's the thing. I do not believe that one can simply begin martial arts in JKD. Some argue that it isn't a system, but rather the application of styles.

I really don't see why people argue so much over what jkd is, to me jkd is a philosophy on how to improve your way no matter what style you are trained in. It just so happens that lee was trained in wing chun but it could have been anything as it's core as long as it was simple and effective, the style doesn't matter as long as it get's the job done.
