I wish I was there,too young The drill I beleive,he adapted from a tae-kwon-do drill but utilising 'JKD' kicks, ie Starting with skip front right,front right,right side,left side.rear knee shots turn,donkey kicks etc,doubling up sometimes with fornts and sides etc stepping most of the time, finishing with two static sides.Its a bit vauge sorry,but its something that you need to be shown unfortunately.It involves a lot of kicking,control and balance.Great for flexability.One of my favourites.

Okay that is enough. I did not log on here to get into some argument with people about what this is. I do indeed have a perfect grasp of what matters I know of and I certainly do not need permission from the likes of you or anyone else when it comes to it. This whole posting is really unproductive and quite frankly the whole thing is old news to me and the whole concept of this being a debate is not on my level. I shall just leave y'all alone. While you're busy passing these ideas back and forth, arguing about them, and living all sorts of mental stress over the issue I'll be at the lake fishing. Good night.

What is JKD? For reference, according to Paul Vunak, these 26 arts comprise the core of Bruce Lee's JKD -

1 wing chun
2 northern mantis
3 southern mantis
4 choy lui fut
5 wu style tai chi
6 pa qua
7 hsing i
8 white crane
9 eagle claw
10 ng ga kuen
11 five animal
12 white eyebrow
13 northen shaolin
14 southern shaolin
15 bok pai
16 law horn kuen
17 chin na
18 monkey style
19 druken style
20 western fencing
21 wrestling
22 boxing
23 ju jitsu
24 kali
25 filipino sikaran
26 thai boxing

I have also seen white tiger and white crane listed as some of the 26 as well.

Some people said that Bruce Lee regretted forming it into a seperate stlye, because it would contradict exactly what Bruce was trying to show.

And Bruce's concept, was by no means new. It had been around, and is still around now days. He just modernized it, and also introduced it to the west. He was an avid practicioner of various forms of tradional martial arts. He was just one of those guys who saw the restrictions of the culture, mysticism, etc. as ridiculous. As do I. He tried to bring something real, and useful, out of things that were otherwise succumbing to legend, myth, mysticism, lack of application (actual fighting), years of isolation, etc. I am of course speaking of kung fu.This is something I try and do too.

I am tired of people thinking they are going to be, or fight like Bruce if they join a JKD gym. In fact, I think people would be better off starting their own martial art journey, learning for themselves what is out there, and how to mold the spirit/body out of it.

ANd to the above poster, Bruce had no real experience with any of those arts. Save WC, Boxing, and maybe some Jujitsu. But other than that, it was very limited in his exposure. What he did was take the core principles that are inherent to almost all forms of CMA (such as whole body power, fajin, etc.), and just let it become a part of him. As do I, but he by no means was adept in all those arts.

I'm still having a difficult time understanding the principles of JKD. Can somebody help me with "getting" this idea. Everybody's talking in a prophetic and wise and philosophical way and it's just confusing the s*** out of me.

I would appreciate any help in Laemens terms, that's of course, if it's possible to describe it in a simple way.
