Jeet Kune Do - A Martial Arts Style Created By Bruce Lee

Jeet Kune Do is an American martial arts that was created by Bruce Lee, the well-known martial artist and movie star (i.e. Enter the Dragon" and "Fist of Fury"). Jeet Kune Do focuses on techniques that are effective in real combat situations (versus martial arts that utilize stylized patterns or that focus on sports "sparring" techniques). This martial arts style utilizes kicks, punches, grappling and traps.

Bruce Lee created Jeet Kune Do by combining elements from many different martial arts including Wing Chun, boxing and even fencing (for its footwork and tactics).

History of Jeet Kune Do

According to BruceLee.com, "Jeet Kune Do means the 'Way of the Intercepting Fist'… and the core philosophical tenet behind JKD translate to 'Using no way as way, having no limitation as limitation'. The term Jeet Kune Do was coined around 1967 by Bruce Lee in an attempt to put a name to his expression of his martial way. Lee wrestled with putting a name to his art as he constantly veered away from any type of crystallization of its essence, however, the simple need to refer to it in some concrete way won out and Jeet Kune Do was born. The idea of intercepting is key to JKD, whether it be the interception of your opponent's technique or intent."
