Jeet Kune Do, (The Way of The Intercepting Fist) was Developed by the late Bruce Lee. The original idea was to create something that would free the individual from styles or systems, to give the individual the tools, the concept, to develop him/herself as an individual and to give them the choice to “Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is specifically your own.”
JKD borrows form the essence and strengths of many fighting arts including those used today in the ubiquitous UFC, such as Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Wrestling, and Jiu-jitsu. All of this, taking place way before the UFC was around. Bruce Lee and JKD were far ahead of their time back in 1972. And even though mixed martial arts were practiced way before the Buce Lee era, it was Bruce Lee who not only open the door, but rather created the door for what we now know and have regarding Martial Arts.
Bruce Lee was always refining his art, and most likely he would still be refining it if he was alive today. That’s what many, including his number one student, training partner and friend Guro Dan Inosanto, have done all these years, constant refining of the art. That’s what some of us aim at doing.
JKD is not just trapping, trapping is just another tool. JKD is limitless “having no way as way and having no limitation as limitation.” JKD is more about the development of the individual both physically and mentally through training.
