Do you have a certified and legitimate instructor (of a verifiable lineage) near you?
If you don’t, and you are hell bent on learning Jeet Kune Do — the way Bruce Lee taught his direct students, and not some “just mix up your favourite arts” thing — then you will need to find authentic and credible sources.
You can’t just “do your own thing” and conveniently call it JKD.
JKD has a unique science and vehicle to it — it was Bruce Lee’s lifework. We’re talking about decades of research, testing and improvisation.
Jaded by the perceived limits of classical methods, he turned to physics and philosophy to uncover the Universal Way of Human Combat.
This is not a debate as to if Bruce Lee was the greatest martial artist of all-time or not.
This is simply about respecting one’s lifework.
If you don’t have access to such an instructor, your best bet is to train yourself to be independent and self-sufficient.
I’m talking about thinking-wise, and financially-wise.
You’ll need to train your Mind to discern what makes sense, and what doesn’t.
Remember, JKD was Bruce Lee’s way of saying “find and optimize your own methods and in that way master yourself”.
JKD is not a set of techniques thrown haphazardly together. Just because you can throw some of the techniques well, doesn’t mean that you possess the Insight and Philosophy of the art.
You’ll need to be financially independent, so that you can either invite your ideal JKD instructors to your area or travel to learn from them on a consistent basis.
Sure, you can also learn from YouTube, DVDs, etc. but nothing beats actual experience from a mentor + time.
Invest wisely and beware of shortcuts.
