  • Second-Generation Bruce Lee Student Lamar M. Davis II Shows You How to Use JKD Trapping as an Attack!

    Jeet kune do moves expert Lamar Davis II, second-generation student of Bruce Lee.Bruce Lee’s jeet kune do is comprised of many principles, one of which is economy of motion through efficiency, directness and simplicity.

    Second-generation Bruce Lee student Lamar M. Davis II, who studied under five of Lee’s original students (Joseph Cowles, Patrick Strong, Leo Fong, Jerry Poteet and Steve Golden), brings this concept to life in this jeet kune do technique video excerpted from his three-DVD series Jeet Kune Do for the Advanced Practitioner.

    Lamar M. Davis II Shows You How to Use Jeet Kune Do Trapping as an Attack!

    As Davis explains in this video excerpt from his DVD series, Jeet Kune Do for the Advanced Practitioner, this approach to martial arts fighting is about attacking the hand(s) for the primary purpose of immobilization. “When we use trapping, it is as a result of the opponent’s defensive action, but it doesn’t always have to be that way,” Davis says. “I can preplan an attack based on my opponent’s position and based on the way I initiate my movement to draw him into position where I can attack with a trap.”

    “Some jeet kune do practitioners prefer not to do this,” Davis continues. “Others don’t even know that this exists, as they always think of trapping as strictly a byproduct of hitting. But yes, trapping can be specifically a way of attacking the opponent.”

    Davis demonstrates the trapping-as-an-attack technique with his training partner and longtime student Ken Jones, explaining, “One of the things that I might be tempted to do is what we call a double jom sao entry. … I cut into both of his arms with a double jom sao movement, forcing his arms in and then I trap and hit him [in the face].”

    The jeet kune do technique of trapping for attack is an organic, efficient, fast and effective movement that immobilizes the attacker’s arms and hands, opening a direct line for Davis to launch a strike to the chin. Davis breaks down the execution: “[A] quick jut sao, pulling [the opponent's] arm down; lan sao to shut both arms down, and then hit.”

  • Why Bruce Lee Facts and JKD History Must Be Preserved

    Bruce Lee and Taky Kimura from Bruce Lee: The Evolution of a Martial Artist.

    Editor’s Note: This text is adapted for web presentation from Tommy Gong’s acclaimed book Bruce Lee: The Evolution of a Martial Artist.

    The term Jun Fan jeet kune do was adopted in January 1996, during a landmark summit meeting in Seattle with Linda Lee Cadwell and Shannon Lee, along with many of Bruce’s first-generation students.

    This meeting served as the precursor to the formation of the JFJKD Nucleus/Bruce Lee Educational Foundation. Actually, it was Shannon Lee’s suggestion to merge the two terms (Jun Fan gung fu and jeet kune do) to describe her father’s complete journey in martial arts, and everyone in attendance unanimously agreed.

    Jun Fan jeet kune do serves as the definitive case study for Jun Fan gung fu and jeet kune do because it endeavors to give a clear and accurate picture of Bruce Lee’s legacy to martial arts — physically, scientifically and philosophically.

    BRUCE LEE® and the Bruce Lee signature are registered trademarks of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC. The Bruce Lee name, image, likeness and all related indicia are intellectual property of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC. All Rights Reserved. www.brucelee.com.

    I remember Linda Lee Cadwell paraphrasing a statement made by Pete Jacobs (a student of Bruce Lee’s in Los Angeles) during the Inaugural JFJKD Seminar held in 1997 in San Francisco: “We can’t possibly predict in what direction he may have gone, most certainly we can predict that he would have continued to grow, evolve, change, but we can’t say what that was [or would have been].” In this way, JFJKD serves as both the historical reference for what Lee practiced, trained and taught during his lifetime, and also the inspiration or catalyst encouraging followers not to follow blindly their sifu (teacher) and/or style, and to discover the truth for themselves.

    Although Bruce Lee’s message prescribed having no boundaries when looking to improve one’s martial arts, it becomes increasingly important to document what he taught and practiced so future generations will have a chance to experience what the first-generation students did during their time with him. As a result, the art of Jun Fan jeet kune do showcases the common ground that first-generation students share so the historical reference and context of his evolution in the martial arts during his lifetime could be preserved.

    When examining Lee’s personal notes and letters, and hearing the recollections from his students, one can discover the building blocks of jeet kune do. In this way, Lee’s body of work is basic source material, providing the beginning student some initial steps to study and explore, and a path to understanding JKD.

    Bruce Lee Quotes on Philosophy: An Excerpt From the NEW Bruce Lee Biography and Your Guide to Four More Bruce Lee Books

    An interesting viewpoint is that — while some differences may exist between Bruce Lee’s martial arts when it comes to his time in Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles — little delineation occurred in his evolutionary development toward jeet kune do. Bruce Lee developed JKD throughout his time in America. It was, by no means, a smooth, gradual process — but for him, change happened out of necessity. His process was akin to the modern evolution theory of “punctuated equilibrium,” which proposes over thousands or millions of years that species maintain a relatively stable existence — but when evolutionary changes occur, they are rapid and abrupt, not smooth and gradual.

    Punctuated equilibrium appears to describe perfectly Bruce Lee’s methods because he was known to be inspired by something early on, only to drop it or even criticize it later. As he became enlightened through investigating various topics such as kinesiology (the science of movement), he came to fully understand how to use a certain fighting principle and then modified his methods accordingly. Furthermore, events such as an altercation in Oakland, wherein Lee was challenged by a Chinese martial artist, resulted in an abrupt change in Lee’s approach to the martial arts. Although he bested his opponent, Lee concluded the match lasted entirely too long due to his strict adherence to his previous training, and he immediately sought out more efficient combat methods.

    In many ways, the exact timing of these inspirations is difficult to pin down, because much of what was happening to Lee was occurring simultaneously. For instance, he was already influenced by Western boxing and fencing in his early years in Hong Kong. The question is: When did certain elements come to full fruition in his development as a martial artist? Similar techniques were taught in all three schools, yet certain discoveries he found useful during his evolution were reflected in his private practice and training. Although it is convenient to chronicle Lee’s development by dividing it between his Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles periods, much overlap exists between “eras” since he continued to have contact with students from all three. In fact, each era could be equally served by referencing the many students he had. Nevertheless, the three eras provide the reader points of reference for placing dates, events and Lee’s development into context so that each school provides a glimpse along the evolutionary path.

    Chinese Gung Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self-Defense — Revised and Updated

    One must realize that Lee studied physics, biomechanics, nutrition and training theory, and he used scientific methodology to validate what he was doing. He researched what he did not know, developed hypotheses, tested his theories using himself as the test subject and then concluded whether or not they worked. One could say that Lee used the science of combat when formulating his style of “no style.” It was not simply choosing what he liked or preferred, but rather what was proven to be the most effective. In this way, not only the “what” and “how” were learned, but also the “why.” Perhaps the need to understand “why” is the most important lesson he left us.

    We can use JFJKD as an invaluable tool because it provides a point of reference when discussing Lee’s evolution and various interpretations of it presented through the years since his passing, whether we’re talking about wing chun, Jun Fan gung fu, jeet kune do, JKD concepts, original JKD, etc. During the mid-80s, there was dissension within the JKD family over the purity of the art versus the infusion of different martial arts based on one’s personal journey. Today the focus has shifted to how much wing chun was done in Seattle, Oakland or Los Angeles, but the same negative criticism still continues, despite its pointlessness.

    The book Bruce Lee: The Evolution of a Martial Artist places the various elements of Lee’s earlier and later training in context on the JFJKD timeline. Although trapping techniques had less to do with JKD later on, it was a central theme in Lee’s martial art during the earlier and even middle period of his development, serving as a valuable foundation for Lee, and it deserves respect as a valid part of JKD history. Placing techniques such as the pak sao (block), the straight lead, and the side kick with its accompanying footwork along the JFJKD timeline should help the reader see things in better context.

    Since Bruce Lee’s passing in 1973, we have been fortunate that so many of his students — those he taught early on as well as those he taught later — shared his teachings with students around the world. During the past few years, their teachings have become even more precious because many of them have passed on. In just the past couple of years since work on this book began, some of Lee’s closest students have left us, including Jesse Glover, Lee’s very first student in Seattle, and Ted Wong, one of Lee’s last students in Los Angeles. These students have left us with a rich history that allows us to better understand Bruce Lee and jeet kune do. The first-generation students of Bruce Lee shared a lot in common, so where there were differences, maybe they were more like two halves of one whole that is the formless form.

    Although Lee did not like to refer to jeet kune do as a style or system, his martial arts movements had a distinct character or flavor. Hence, the balancing act is not to forget his message of liberation and freedom, while being sure to recognize his many other contributions, large and small, so the complete picture of his life can be fully appreciated. In the spirit of being neither “for” nor “against” what JKD is, Jun Fan jeet kune do serves as the two halves of one whole, just like yin and yang, in joining together Lee’s legacies in martial arts, from the physical, technical and scientific to the philosophical principles eliminating the notion of self and ego, being like water, and adapting to “what is.”

  • Entre arts & martiaux

    Pour ce début d’année 2014-2015, je reprend avec plaisir la plume (le clavier) et souhaite à tous les pratiquants de tous les arts martiaux qui lisent ce blog, une bonne reprise pleine de sueur et de sourires. Pour bien démarrer cette année, et avant d’attaquer des articles de fond, je reviens sur le parcours de mon ami Yon Costes, cet artiste inclassable. J’ai déjà parlé de son parcours atypique et exemplaire à la fois, martialement et artistiquement parlant. Aujourd’hui Yon poursuit son chemin, traçant véritablement un genre artistique en soi, qui mélange à la fois la chorégraphie, la peinture classique asiatique et les arts martiaux, ainsi que la musique. Dans cette très belle vidéo, vous pourrez voir un extrait de la dernière vidéo réalisé avec son collectif d’artistes. Il émane à la fois une grande beauté et une grande force de ces images. Les jets d’encre sur le corps du danseur ne sont d’ailleurs pas sans rappeler le sang et les blessures du combat, mais intérieur celui-là. Sans rentrer dans une analyse poussée, je préfère vous laisser découvrir ces images de toute beauté.

  • A la recherche du vrai Shaolin

    Le prestige du monastère de Shaolin est tel que certains aficionados refusent de dépasser les mythes pour ne considérer que la seule vérité historique. Si l’on s’en tient au domaine des arts martiaux (mais il y aurait aussi beaucoup à dire sur la prétendue invention du Chan à Shaolin), il est inexact de croire que les moines ont mis au point des exercices destinés à fortifier leurs corps afin d’amoindrir les effets de la méditation prolongée. Pour comprendre la réalité historique, il faut tout d’abord savoir que le temple possédait de vastes terres arables (cultivées par des paysans) qu’il fallait défendre contre les pillards. Il était donc logique qu’une milice soit montée dans ce but. Les hommes qui la composaient avaient-ils prononcé des voeux religieux ou n’étaient-ils que de simples laïcs ? Cette question reste aujourd’hui sans réponse, mais on sait que lors des raids au côté des soldats de l’empire, ces hommes se livrèrent à des exactions sur les civils (y compris femmes et enfants) en contradiction évidente avec la doctrine bouddhiste. Sous les Ming, ce savoir-faire donna naissance à une véritable académie militaire chargée de former des soldats professionnels en échange d’une rémunération. Cette responsabilité impliquait un soutien
