thats the main message that I get...if you're talking about stances and straight leads, those things just fall under technicalities along with things like WC's blasting and trapping or a triangle choke. JKD just guides me in my process to move and fight the way I would like to. I know theres certain "rules" that Bruce Lee wrote down in his Tao of JKD, but honestly to me thats his intrepretation and not mine. I don't think of JKD like a religion with 10 commandments that you must follow, otherwise it'll be a bit hypocritical in my mind. I'll carve my own path
