    JKD is a process, not a style, but OJKD is an attempt to preserve bruce lees personal fighting methods, or nucleus behind the process: i found notes of a very brief interview i had with my sifu, and in it i asked this question - where do we get our methods from? he said: boxing angular punches, fencing footwork and stop hits, wingchun traps and linear strikes, muaythai elbows and knees, savate stop kicks, judo takedowns, jujutsu and wrestling locks and submissions, kali weapons.... elsewhere its said bruce lee studied 26 arts, but he didnt borrow equally - or at all - from all of them, and for the most part he used just those arts listed above.... so heres my next question for the JKD guys only: can you name the specific techniques we use in JFJKD and the arts, styles or techniques we get them from, using both the traditional name of the technique, and also the chinese or english names sijo used for those techniques when teaching JKD? this is for my own personal knowledge and attempt to preserve the nucleus

    You can't preserve the nucleus by memorising the names we write down for you.
    In addition learning names isn't the same as training and understanding physically.

    To preserve you'd need to be able to pass on, and who are you going to pass on to?

    I was of the understanding you trained with Bruce's original students. 5 years JKD if I remember correctly.


    According to this post you already have the answers.

    I did mention that any new threads that were seen as trolling would be deleted or closed and I do feel we're just going around in circles with your JKD wannabe desire.

    Thread closed pending MOD discussion.
