JKD is pretty much all arts included. It's the simple princeable of utilizing all forms within a specific mind set and philosphy. Take a look at his books, he has tons of wrestling moves that he incorperated in what he used for his useage of jeet kun do.

for the original poster, it depends on your body type. I'm 6'3 and have a large frame, so i tend to go with alot of ground fighting, grapples, boxing, ju-jitsu, and Mui-Tahi, as they work better for my body...being short quick movements based on phyiscal power. If your a smaller build, and quicker, you probly want some gung fu, wushu and other arts that complament movement and speed. Usually i find hard styles work better with bigger bodies and soft with smaller bodies. Of course a good mix in techniques is also essential to throw an opponent off in a fight.

Never heard of Mui-Tahi, mind explaining?

I understand what you mean by saying JKD is a philosophy of incorparating all arts, but what the original poster was asking was what he should do when he's not going to class, so figures.

What I don't suggest tho, is to go use all the plethora of arts there is. It will just confuse the practitioner, what I do recommend however is to take 2-3 arts, and work from there. Muay Thai, BJJ, add a little FMA and you got your purpose.

I do Baji-quan (It's called Hakkyoku-ken, here ) and it's designed for large people, I myself ain't that big. I don't really recommend doing CMA for speed. It's better to work on natural foot-work found in MT or Boxing and getting good at it. This will inhibit natural flow to your strategy. CMA, as sad at it may sound, sometimes tries to work too much on awkward stances and movement where they should be more natural, more flowing, more energy-efficient.

I grew up to him, and I've read most of his books. I think I have a small idea what he was thinking but I doubt there's anyone that knows what he was thinking for sure. Who knows, maybe even Dan doesn't understand him?

Some people on this forum were there when he was alive, some objected against him (ButterflyPalm), some trained hard on his philosophy for a long time (JKogas). To be honest, long time ago, I was against his idea of teaching CMA to non-chinese, then I quickly realized, I ain't chinese.
