How would you structure JKD as an Olympic sport?
would it be..
1 - Two people on computers attacking each others instructor and lineage to Bruce Lee? .. and yelling how OJKD or JKD concepts was better?..while eating cheetos..
2 - Two people doing every imaginable derivative of a set attribute exercise such as hubud/lubud or chisao
3 - least likely, two people sparring with some minimal rules for safety...nah, too much like MMA and we know that JKD people don't do MMA (take that Erik Paulson....LOL)

if 3 - what rules would you use, how would it differ from MMA?

No one has an idea how they would put two JKD people together in a competition event?

How about kickboxing in one round where the referee would NOT seperate fighters and the fighter that goes down loses a point.
How about requiring fighters to be strong side forward throught the bout?

It'd probably look exactly like MMA, or shootwrestling, or perhaps even Shidokan if JKDers wanted to separate things out by ranges(ie: R1 kickboxing, R2 grappling, R3 FMA/weapons fighting).

bjjsavate - thats great stuff, thank you for that vid.

Having done a number of seminars with Craftydog and training with a Leo Gaje instructor, I loved every minute. fights that have all ranges and aspects of fighting...coolness...
Right now the OJKD folk are going."..but we can't fight that way, sticks(and weapons training) aren't included in the Tao of JKD..."lol
