    https://youtu.be/nipZgc3quFc Maybe in Muay Thai perspective it looks too opened, but we were more focus on flowing movement, just like Bruce Lee taught.

    We were always doing full contact sparring, just like Kickboxing.
    Looks like kickboxing. What organization?

    It might be a symptom of their inexperience but yes, agreed, not a very good display of hand skills from a more technical perspective. Other than that it was hardly terrible but I think it's funny how many Jun Fan guys try to copy Lee's kicks and movement but forget that Boxing, alongside Wing Chun and Fencing, was a one of the three pillars of his personal approach during the period of his life most JFJKD guys base the approach on.

    It's also funny that, according to some sources, the period following what typically characterises Jun Fan, before his untimely death, saw Lee adopt a style that was more MT based- "Neo-Muay Thai", according to Joe Lewis anyway. That's ignoring the fact that he was beginning to develop his grappling further and, surprise surprise, cut out a lot of the Wing Chun material...

    Should clarify that If it's "traditional" JFJKD the Boxing should be a decent part of the curriculum. It's the more larpy JKD with a Wing Chun fetish that tends to neglect or water down the Boxing in my experience.

    Fake JKD?
    Like a class that only does rigid fixed, forms and decries weightlifting? Where the instructors talk **** about Bruce Lee and don't know who Dan Inosanto is?
    Aikido.
    I'm pretty sure you're thinking about Aikido.

    This really comes down to one simple question.

    Do their super rigid rear leg snap kicks that lock out on the air at full extension answer your question?

    Wouldn't 'REAL' Jeet Kune Do be whatever works for the individual practicing it? I always thought the premise was using what works (for you) eliminating whatever doesn't.
