Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a hybrid combat system developed by martial arts icon Bruce Lee, whose legendary fighting talent shot this pint-sized phenomenon to fame in the 1970's. Trained in classical Chinese fighting disciplines, Wing Chun and boxing, Bruce diligently worked through these systems, but went on to develop his own style of fighting known as Jeet Kune Do or, The Way of the Intercepting Fist.
Favoring simple, unassuming forms with seamless chic movements applied at super speed to affect maximum impact, JKD took a bold step away from the exclusively rational (and largely unrealistic) approach of traditional styles. Although not developed as an improvement on Wing Chun or his other training, JKD became an exception which bested the rules from which it had evolved, and done so by virtue of its multiple fighting disciplines and the resulting intuitive adaptability which characterizes it. Its efficacy when applied in real life scenarios created JKD's definitive point of difference; this being that it was functional for real-life street fighting, since it operated beyond the limits of traditional training of the day.
