Jeet Kune Do
"Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own."
- Bruce Lee
Jeet Kune Do has no rules, you have to constantly adapt to the ever changing environment.
Training is divided into different ranges, such as punching, kicking, grappling and trapping. You practice these moves in a fluid holistic way and not set Kata’s.
Many principles of Jeet Kune Do have concurrent offensive and defensive moves. Most all moves are fluid, which Bruce Lee likened to being like water. They have to be efficient, direct and simple.
Popular punches include the straight leading hand punch, delivered from your centreline (usually your dominant hand leads). Punches are normally relaxed at the start and only become tense on contact, which helps with speed and doesn’t give away your intention with the winding up of a traditional punch. Kicks are normally directed to below the waist. This is because these areas are closest to your foot and therefore reduce time and distance.
One area that is used a lot is the control of the center-line, the center of the body, where you control your opponents center-line and defend yours.
It is not necessary for all martial arts to have extra physical activity, however Bruce Lee spent a lot of time refining his physique with weight training/body weight exercises, running and stretching to help improve his bodies efficiency.
