Your right, it's just hard for me to look at MMA and JKD as similar. It's just my opinion really. Then again Bruce Lee did say unless different human beings have more arms and legs then others then we all have the same way of fighting. Personally my JKD sucks . I've got not stamina, no real muscular endurance, and i have no technique because i haven't studied any martial arts. To compare it to one of the classics of zen literature "In search of the missing ox" I'm "Finding the foot prints".

Well, I can certainly understand where you're coming from. Trust me. But don't look at MMA as the sport that it is for a moment. Look at the training method that it represents. It' just sparring. But isn't it the most realistic sort of sparring that you can do short of street fighting? Isn't sparring important to the JKD student? If so, wouldn't we want to spar in the most realistic way possible? That would be mma, IMO.

Honestly, all you have to do is add weapons to the mix and what you have is nothing short of JKD. In fact, Larry Hartsell had mentioned that modern mma is exactly where Lee would have been headed with his training...not necessarily to compete, but as a training methodology.
