No Way…One Way…All Ways

20 shinai makotoLee once commented that — “the most efficient means of countering [is]…When the opponent attacks, you intercept his move with a thrust or hit of your own….”

Dan Inosanto then asked: “What would that be in Chinese?”

Lee replied — “That would be Jeet Kune Do“.

Bruce Lee’s vision for Jeet Kune Do is reflected in some of his writings:

“I have not invented a “new style,” composite, modified or otherwise that is set within distinct form as apart from “this” method or “that” method.

On the contrary, I hope to free those that follow me from clinging to styles, patterns, or molds.

Remember that Jeet Kune Do is merely a name used, a mirror in which to see “ourselves”. . .
Jeet Kune Do is not an organized institution that one can be a member of.

Either you understand or you don’t, and that is that.
There is no mystery about my style.

My movements are simple, direct and non-classical.

The extraordinary part of it lies in its simplicity… I always believe that the easy way is the right way.”

Bruce Lee
