    My bet they did a lot of TKD before doing JKD.Those flashy kicks reminded of XMA.

    High Kicks? Even worse, spinning, jumping high kicks? No fully resisting sparring partners? Just idiots doing back and forth KATA?! No counterstriking? No forward movement to force an oppenent on his heels? No straight blast (lead jab?) No grapppling? No weapons? No dirty fighting? I'm sorry, but that wasn't JKD.

    About the only thing they did right was "sparring" multiple oppenents, but none of them went for a standing grab or takedown, which would make it a lot harder to fend off the other two guy's strikes.

    Also, no self respectin JKD cat would listen to techno.

    Unfortunately JKD, as a training philosophy, is very much whatever people make of it.

    it's pretty hard to punch with power when you are flailing at random as fast as you can.

    First of all, i don't think these guys were sparring, most of that looked like drills to me.

    Upon viewing the clip, no it doesn't look like wing chun.

    Pretty hard do anything in a drill when that isn't the point of the drill.
