    The point is, from the JKD books I have seen so far, YES YOU CAN LEARN IT.

    But don't be mistaken. That is not a compliment to JKD.

    Always remember the Tao is ghost Written from notes so, we really don't know if that book is anywhere near Bruce's beliefs.

Having said that, they seem very upfront about what they do and that their jeet kune do is studied from books and whatnot. Carter hasn't shown himself to be this honest. Looks like a bunch of karate guys read the Tao of JKD and it resonated and they wanted to do some training outside their traditional karate, and that's cool I guess.
    Certification by a person who failed his black sash test with Gary Dill, had the opportunity to retake within 6 months, didn't and instead, went to another person who had also failed (Larry Sanders) for his rank.

    Carter's a joke here in the Oklahoma martial arts community. Perhaps they're not aware or do not care.

    Has anyone else here actually read any of Bruce Lee's books?
    Do you realize how fucking terrible they are?
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Yes and yes. The best I can get from any of Bruce's books is that he was trying to make people understand his philosophy andnot actually pass on his "system."


    I want my $$ back after having purchase them back in my naive days and the time I wasted trying to figure out his way of doing things.

    Seriously? Could you point me in the direction of information on that? That's really interesting.

    Sure you can learn from books, some people are better at it than others, the test is the same and the test is what matters.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Is this what Paul Vunak did?

    He always seems to be chewing on someone...
