markijkd - I suggest that in order to be a valid JKD Forum you must recognize: Bruce Lee

(1) Wing Chun
(2) Jun Fan Gung Fu
(3) Early Stage JKD
(4) Latter Stage JKD (primarily TWJKD)
(5) JKD Concepts (Dan Inosanto Unified Martial Arts)
(6) Modern MMA and RBSD

You can ask all of the proponents to define them as a starting point. Then we can discuss common denominators and differences.

M...

Mark I think everyone who comes to this forum knows and can recognize BL.
But I disagree with everything else you wrote, those are just labels.
What you suggest is a history lesson. Although we learn from our past, that doesn't mean we retrace the footprint.

IMHO there are bigger things to recognize then BL, and I believe BL recognized this himself. Such as:

1.Timing
2.Distance
3.Leverage
4.Angles
5.Centrifugal force & MORE!!!!
These are universal laws that make up all movement...Even BL had to adhere to these laws.
BL is that finger that Paul Hopkins keeps reminding us about.

Happy New Year my brother...:-)

Yes I agree that these things are universal and I did not suggest that we focus on History just that we recognize it in regards to why you would call this a JKD Forum... I would still be happy to come here if you called it "The Science of Combat"...

Happy New Year:)
