I agree wholeheartedly I have been practicing martial arts for a very long time (19 years to be exact). I'm not an expert, I'm not some ignorant fool that believes I am one of the top 500 martial artists in the world today. I am an advanced beginner like all who truly walk the path to attain mastery in any art martial or otherwise. The true master has attained levels of enlightenment, insight, moksha, whatever you may name it, a true master never is someone who has discovered a truth that few will ever be able to comprehend. I am someone who looks for mastery not for power but for tranquility. I put this post up just in case someone/s like minded came across this and cared to join me or meet up to aid one another, protect one another, to hone our skills and in most cases keep one another from becoming to bitter and to hateful. If you lose the true definition of attaining mastery, then you become nothing more then another dangerous, soulless, wanderer.Great idea if you could actually pull if off but it doesn't seem very likely lol....maybe it's jut me but trying to gather a group of people with common skills/ideas/interests is not easy and the more unconventional the idea is, the harder it seems to be.
I'm not being a nit picky know it all dick. I actually only found this out when I was 16 yrs old. Jeet Kune Do itself is not a style. Its a concept, Its the concept of style without style. You see Sifu Bruce Lee was trying to teach his students that what works for one does not work for another hence the technique may have been done perfectly so why was it not as effective as when others do it. Bruce Lee's Style ala trying to do the same techniques and motions he did is known as Jun Fuan Gung-fu. It gets its name from his Sifu Lee's Chinese name which is Lee Jun Fuan. To follow the Jeet Kune do philosophy at least my interpretation is to continually learn new techniques and learn which ones work for you as individual. But like all things I am only one person with only my personal experiences to draw off of so like a learning a new technique empty your cup then listen and then accept what is useful to you as an individual and discard what is superfluousAkira Kurosawa you speak of? I would love to learn Bruce lee's jeet kune do.
