Hi, I'm kind of new to these forums so I'll try and cut the question short.

I'm currently trying to study JKD by myself cuz there aren't any schools or classes that teaches JKD here in Thailand, and if there is, it's a McDojo. Now, I am experienced in other arts, mostly Muay Boran (Ancient Muay Thai) and a chinese art called "San Shou Kuai Jiao", or chinese wrestling.

Well, my friend told me to forget it cuz books won't help, but from my viewpoint, it does and I'm not trying to copy Bruce Lee cuz what worked for him may not work for me. Well, what I use to study most of the time is the Tao of Jeet Kune Do.

Do you think that studying by yourself is possible or do you need a teacher? What's the pro and cons?
