Jeet Kune Do : A Core Structure Training Manual Paperback
by Dave Carnell
Jeet Kune Do [JKD], which transalates as 'the way of the intercepting fist', was developed over a number of years by Bruce Lee as an anti-thesis to what he saw as the formulaic straightjacket of the classical martial arts which, he argued, failed to allow individuals to fully and honestly express themselves.
However, as Cass Magda points out in his Foreword, JKD is definitely not a 'do-it-yourself' martial art and it does have a unique structure.
Indeed, it is essential for the JKD fighter to master this structure if he, or she, is to present a highly organized defence and mount an instantaneous and effective counter-attack.
