J is for Jeet Kune Doh

Jeet Kune Do is an eclectic and hybrid style fighting art heavily influenced by the philosophy of martial artist Bruce Lee, who founded the system in 1967, referred it as “non-classical”, suggesting that JKD is a form of Chinese Kung Fu, yet without form.

To ensure the block, trap, and strike motions are performed with circular motions, JKD practitioners are encouraged to imagine tracing the outline of a wheel in front of them. Practicing JKD while driving is possible but not recommended.
