  Jeet Kune Do has a rear heel sprung stance for speed and mobility, but still has the freedome to use the Wing Chun stance and footwork at any given time, making the lead leg more effective to control a safe range with your movement. The lead hand is strong with the capability to block and hit without any retraction which ever lead you may be in at the time of engagement. The Five Ways of Attack teach you to deal with any scenario where ever your hands or feet may be at the time. Which makes it easy to deal with any attack in any situation. Footwork plays a very important part with jeet kune do, it helps to slip evade retreat or attack, with light fluid movements but still gives you power in your base.  

  With its trapping hand skills to control the opponent and use of forward energy, its broken rhythm, timed hit, evasion tactics, also the ability to generate power from a short distance makes this art dynamic and alive. With his own philosophy Bruce Lee researched many different fighting arts to find out what worked for his art. What ever he used was not the same after he had broken it down to be more efficient, simple,direct, with no wasted energy.

Jeet Kune Do, has a core structure to follow with training drills and movements that help in your progression, every part of you must work as one unit to be succesessful in a fight .

  Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, add what is specifically your own,
