  • Interested to train JKD but impossible atm

    So my situation is that I find the philosophy and concept of JKD very fascinating - actually have found it as such since I first heard it about 10 years go And ok, have to admit...The Bruce Lee fetish...

    The thing is that JKD is very rare in the country I live. Some arts that often can bee seen in the "JKD syllabus" that are available here are; Wing Chun (Wan Kam Laung´s Practical WC system, seems to have a pretty good reputation as far as I know), muay thai, FMA (Kombatan Arnis), BJJ/Shooto and of course Boxing...

    I already have experience from muay thai and BJJ during the few past years.

    I am not interested really in trying to train some Jun-Fan Kung-Fu but more in the vein of JKD concepts... I have been thinking to start Wing Chun and FMA and add to that maybe some boxing and later maybe cyclically train muay thai and groundwork...

    Any comments, suggestions etc. are welcome...especially from ppl who have experience and knowledge about this stuff (I don´t want this thread turn into "Why not train MMA because it is the best" -thread you know

      If you find the concepts of JKD and Bruce Lee fascinating, then why not train in the art he spent the most time in: Wing Chun?! That will give you the true basis of JKD. And by the way, you cannot have Jeet Kune Do without Jun Fan gung fu. They are inseperable.

        If you're trying to learn "at a distance"

        I know you're looking for "pieces" to help but if you're looking for the "foundation" I'd recommend Jerry Poteet's e-Academy (Jeet Kune Do Training with Jerry Poteet - an Orginal Bruce Lee Student! | Jerry Poteet). It almost seems TOO basic at first but the real treat is that you build your skills rapidly and can truly understand how to implement them. Also, it doesn't hurt that you can learn ANYWHERE you have an Internet connection.

        Hope that helps.
