  • Style

    Jeet Kune Do is the forerunner to popular modern Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) intended to incorporate the best moves of all styles.

What is Jeet Kune Do really like?

JKD is like Wing Chun taken outside the box. Wing Chun come western boxing. Sticky in defence, lively in attack. Coiled to spring like a cobra. Fluid like tai chi, sporty like boxing, assertive like muay thai, jumpy like taekwondo, grips like judo come wrestling, precision striking like in fencing. JKD is the original MMA. While most JKD teachers present themselves as innovative, few if any actually come close to Bruce Lee's breadth and depth of fighting skill and natural sparring talent. This is because Bruce died before passing on much of his skill to any student with similar natural talent to himself. So, in his movies the bulk of his legacy remains. Perhaps he kind of planned it that way.
