Well I know JKD is a great all round art. Right now, where I train, I can only go once a week. I was thinking, maybe try something new and also something that would help my JKD, maybe me a better martial artist, etc...

So what does everyone thing? Thanks.

Generally speaking, I would tell you to pick an aspect of your training that you feel is weak, and try to pick a style that would work it.

Alternatively, you could also ask your instructor to help you in the same way. (working on your weaknesses)

Well considering that JKD is like cross training I would focus on something that you can not do in JKD such as RBSD or gun work. Something along those lines.

Good point, Big Rob. A good JKD school should be giving you a fairly well-rounded MA education by itself.

Seen as you can 'only go once a week' to your jkd class why dont you try thai/kick boxing or BJJ.I train thai regularily and anythin else i can get my hands on.So if you find a relaxed club you can incorporate your JKD principles.I do!!

You are right, but it depends on the way you look at it. I dont think people really want to get into the discussion (again), its outlined in 'What IS Jeet Kune Do' forum which is stickied.

Not to sound like a cynic, but I'd suggest some boxing. Get those punches up fast. Have free form, good footwork.

The kicks, grappling and clinching can come later with the jkd classes. It's all about the simple basic weapon. If you got lightning fast punches, all those other positions are there for you to choose.

I would say that if you're going to box, you have to learn to sprawl at the same time. What good is boxing if you're only going to wind up on your back. You simply cannot separate striking and grappling during one's training.
