“Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” - Bruce Lee
Jeet Kune Do (“JKD”) is not a style onto itself. Rather, it is the system of philosophy and concepts developed by SiJo Bruce Lee and continued by Sifu Dan Inosanto. Here is an explanation of what JKD is and what it isn’t directly from the Bruce Lee Foundation website.
Our JKD program finds it’s foundation in Jun Fan Gung Fu with an emphasis on practicality, simplicity and efficiency. The focus is broken down within various “ranges of combat.” Students are taught to quickly transition and flow from long-distance (kicking range) to middle distance (hand range), to close quarters (trapping & grappling range). Jun Fan Gung Fu and Jeet Kune Do concepts can be applied to other martial arts as well.
