Jeet Kune Do (JKD)
Jeet Kune Do is an eclectic and hybrid martial art heavily influenced by the philosophy of martial artist Bruce Lee, who founded the system on July 9, 1967. It is referred to as “non-classical,” suggesting that JKD is a form of Chinese Kung Fu, yet without form. Unlike more traditional martial arts, Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned, and it is a philosophy with guiding thoughts. It was named for the Wing Chun concept of interception or attacking while one’s opponent is about to attack. JKD practitioners believe in minimal movements with maximum effects and extreme speed. The system works by using different tools for different situations, where the situations are divided into ranges such as kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling, while using techniques to flow smoothly between them. You can call it the art of fighting without fighting.
