    As long as nobody tries to explain his death or call JKD a fighting system/martial art I'm fine with it.

    Yeah, Bruce Lee is cool in many ways, such as his fighting style, figure, and he is pretty hot. He also has that awesome angry face when he is kicking someone's butt. He couldn't, however, take on both Jackie Chan, an Jet Li because they together would have murder, but if seperately, maybe. They are all equal in a their own way.

    "Possession of anything begins in the mind" ~ Bruce Lee

    Oh yeah... Jeet kun do is not a style or fighting form... Bruce, in his early career, did think that kung fu was the ultimate fighting stlye - superior is any other. But, as he trained, he realized that all styles are equal. That is why in his last film (which he didn't finish) The Game Of Death, he wore the yellow jump suit, showing no afilliation with any particular style.

    Also - in Enter The Dragon, when talking to the British dude:

    British dude: "What's your style?"
    Bruce: "My style? You could call it the art of fighting without fighting..."

    Heck yeah - Bruce Lee is kick ass.

    Read that Tom_san.

    To answer your question completely, JKD is NOT a system and nor is it a martial art.
    The best way to describe it is calling it a fighting philosophy. It can be used with any martial art you desire. It preaches adaption: Being fluent + adapting to your enemy/situation.

    This is also the reason why it will probably never be liked by karatekas or practitioners of other stance based martial arts, Bruce Lee was against rigid stances of any kind and didn't see fighting in different martial arts but fighting as a whole.

    One could say that his idea was ahead of the times because the whole MMA craze started well after his death.

    Happy now?
