    I too had always thought that MMA was the operationalization of JKD's core philosophy.

    Here is the discription of the JKD vs BJJ book:

    "Jeet Kune Do Ground fighting is where we take the base of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and add all the nasty, illegal things that Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighters don't include because of their sport. Designed for self-preservation, we add locking techniques, small joint manipulation, pressure points, and eye jabs to the groundfighting range. This is from a jeet kune do instructors point of view."

    Yes because it's so hard to know how to poke in the eye and snap fingers, lol

    Those asshats who wrote that book don't speak for all of JKD. My old school in Portland taught mainly MMA, with some FMA and CMA on the side for those who wanted. One of our instructors was a local amateur MMA fighter with a damn good record.

    Once again on Bullshido I will bring up that Maurice Smith listed JKD as his style when he was UFC champ. Erik Paulson listed it as his style when he fought in Extreme Fighting. I have no idea what he claimed when he was a Shooto champ.

    What about Burton Richardson? He was an early (founding?) member of the Dog Brothers, a JKD guy, and The DB's use Machado BJJ. It's clearly used in many of their matches.

    No, Smith did not.

    Paulson moved on.

    JKD is stalled in ****** gear.

    Paulson still uses CMA terms to describe things. I wouldn't say he moved on but rolled it all into CSW.

    He also still continued his BJJ training as did Dan Insanto

    ...but BJJ is just horizontal Chi Sao.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
