    Really mind giving me that page #

    Also this quote from Lee himself means what then?

    "Let it be understood once and for all that I have NOT invented a new style, composite or modification. I have in no way set Jeet Kune Do within a distinct form governed by laws that distinguish it from 'this' style or 'that' method. On the contrary, I hope to free my comrades from bondage to styles, patterns and doctrines."

    Taken from Black Belt Magazine article 1971.

    To say Jeet Kun Do is a style defeats the true purpose Lee had for it. Lee wanted fighters to reject styles and forms altogether. He used the example of water as it has many forms but is not limited to any of them...it draws on it's surroundings and becomes them...thus the same concept applies to Jeet Kun Do...be as water...adapt to your surroundings and flow free and fluent yet strong and powerful using your opponents motion against them.

    At least that is my take on it.

    Wu - Chinese Martial ArtsAs much as Bruce Lee is probably rolling in his grave. But it is not to surprising when you consider that there is not a style we know of know that didn't branch from one or more others.
    It's a sad thing.
    It probably has something to do with being recognised for practical and monetary purposes.

    It's also true that there are schools for learning JKD, that means that they do have techniques. But the philosophy remains (or should remain).

    Now that I think about it, Spikes fighting style was a lot of fun to see and really made the fight sequences what they are. I believe there is a specific episode where Spike teaches this style to a kid, forget which one.

    I believe it was the episode when he goes to venus and that kid was trying to get this rare plant to his sister to save her eyesight

    Re: Spike's fighting style - Jeet Kune Do

    I can't remember which episode it is (forgive me!)
    But a guy sees Spike whoop a bounty on a plane, and begs for him to teach him... And Spike uses Bruce Lee's "be like water" analogy... it's great.

    I took Jeet Kune Do for about 8 years. It's not supposed to be a style... That's the whole point for Bruce Lee developing the techniques used. In my class, there were no belt levels, and we had no uniform.
    I was taught that it's not about "mastering" Jeet Kune Do... It's about being able to apply the techniques in any situation according to your own body. Indeed, it's physically demanding... And at times I was so sore from training I could hardly walk!! >.<;; Can I do all that amazing stuff Bruce Lee can? Not quite!! No one but Bruce Lee can. But all you really need is an understanding of the philosophy, coupled with the physical techniques. I learned to have total control over my entire body and mind in any situation... Which I am thankful for. ^_^

    It's actually hard to explain! Sorry if it doesn't makes sense... lol!

    Re: Spike's fighting style - Jeet Kune Do

    Jeet kun do is a decent martial art like kung fu and taekwondo is has a high quality of technique and is beautiful to watch; however in terms of disabling your opponent and power we have many superior fighting styles.

    Punching - Boxing/Dirty boxing

    Kicking,Knees,Elbows - Muythai

    Ground fighting/defence and submission - jujitsu, gracie or Brazilian jujitsu, grecco wrestling.

    Weapons defence (modern, guns and knives)- Krav Maga

    If you wanna learn how to just defend your self and how to beat the crap outta who ever your fighting there ya go =]

    Re: Spike's fighting style - Jeet Kune Do

    Jeet Kune Do is the way of the intercepting fist. Jeet Kune Do mixes the styles of Chinese Kung Fu, French fencing and boxing. Kung Fu for control and movement. Fencing for power and stability. And boxing for speed, balance and stamina. In one episode Spike teaches a man the way of Jeet Kune Do with Lee's famous philosophical speech about flowing while fighting.

    "Be formless, shapeless like water. Now you put water into a cup it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teacup it becomes the teacup. Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend."

    -Bruce Lee
