5.0 out of 5 stars Jeet kune do was a way of thinking, Not a style, 19 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Tao of Jeet Kune Do (Paperback)
Bruce was an incredibly driven man, sometimes too driven as he found out one morning after lifting weights without warming up he damaged his 4th (excuse is mispelled) sacral nerve. This made him bed ridden for approximately six months and in that time he basically wrote most of this book. Firstly this is not a step by step book teaching you techniques. This is much more. As everyone fights differently due to size, bone density, weight, flexibility, natural ability and so fourth you cant teach everyone the same thing and Bruce new this. Firstly JKD is NOT a martial art, it's a way of thinking. What Jute Kune Do is for someone may be totally different for someone else. So this book is helping you to realize what works for you and gives you ideas, insight, and various training routines. It gives you a better idea of how Bruce Lee ticked and what he was aiming for. If your learning martial arts for fitness, theirs no point you buying this. If your learning for self defense or any other combat reason it will help you. It may take you a couple of times reading it to fully understand it's potential.
