Jeet Kune Do is a martial art that focuses on connecting the human body directly with combat techniques.
Bruce Lee considered that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. If those two points are the human body and combat, then the nexus between them shouldn't’t be rigid techniques and forms - Rather it is the human body’s propensity for combat.
There is no set technique or defined forms within Jeet Kune Do, rather it is the impetus to attack through any means based on the individual’s reflex and action.
Attack is based on attacking the weak spots of the human body such as the eyes, groin and throat. This is relatively straightforward. What makes Jeet Kune Do unique is the concept of defense.
When the enemy attacks, the strongest point of his power projection is at the point of impact. This is normally at the end of a punch or kick after the fist or leg has been fully extended. The opponent’s attacking power would be weaker any time prior.
The fundamental concept of Jeet Kune Do is to intercept the enemy’s hand or leg before it reaches its intended target, when it is relatively weak. The training is geared towards using simple techniques explosively to this end, such that the power of the entire body can be focused into a single point for release.
Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do can be broadly categorized into two main stages. Stage 1 occurred around 1959 - 1967. At that time, Bruce Lee based his fighting technique mainly on Wing Chun, the style he trained in from 13 to 18 in Hong Kong.
Stage 2 could be seen as the period from 1967 - 1973. In October 1967 Bruce Lee talked about Jeet Kune Do in Blackbelt Magazine. The framework for this style became more established and Bruce Lee was able to absorb the best ideas from other styles such as Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Karate and Jiu Jitsu into a mixed martial art he could call his own.
While Jeet Kune Do has no set forms, it does rely on a core foundation of techniques that serves as powerful attacking and defensive methods on their own as well as inspiring the Jeet Kune Do fighter to improvise according to his needs and abilities.
