MrMcFu, if I were you I probably wouldn't train with anyone who didn't train with Bruce Lee. Otherwise, you're getting an interpretation of an interpretation. Take a look at this http://www.network54.com/Hide/Forum/message?forumid=250500&messageid=1054025356

Sorry but I just came back to this thread. . .
I don't really care too much about getting an interpretation of an interpretation. "We stand on the shoulders of giants etc. . ." As long as what is taught works, that is important to me. Anyway, I still have not had the chance to check out the class, but I will try to do so Wednesday and give my opinion on it.
Oh one more thing. I talked with the instructor about JKD. His said in his opinion it is best for quick, short suprise attack/counters rather than a prepared confrontation. He also said something about JKD teachers all having a specialty (His is BJJ type grappling).
Sifu Emin - Did you see that?
Me - (gasping) No, but I can't breathe yet.

Personally, if I could get closer to Inosantos place in CA, that's where I would be training. He's still the **** at his age. I've done a couple years of JKD, I love it. But, it would be hard to give up my BJJ & Vale Tudo style training. I have been lucky enough to be able to train in a few different arts for the last 7 years...
Try everything thats available that you can & see what's best for you.

the real difference between real jun fan and anything called junfan this or jkd that is that the real jun fan is an 80/20 art:80 hands,20 feet plus 80 lead and 20 rear.Therefore,the lead hand is 64% of the offense.How good are these guys at the one-inch punch?to what extent do they teach the lead hand,and do they know how to make the lead hand even more powerful than the rear hand normally would be.?????????? Guys like Teddy Wong,Jim DeMIle,and Jesse Glover are "the bomb" because they are totally immersed in the sofisticated footwork and lead hand dominance that made bruce Lee an exceptional fighter?Even thses guy can't teach the lead hand,then screw JKD for the time being and concentrate on your Muay Thai techniques.

sorry 4 my poor typing skills; I meant 2 say---how good is any so-called JKD school or sifu,at teaching the total dynamics of the lead hand.Personally,I would try to email Dan Inosanto and Ted Wong and see if u get a reply...Inosanto knows as much about a cross-scetion of legitimate martial arts as anyone in the world,and Wong is the unchallenged master of JKD footwork.Footwork is JKD,and Wong is footwork!If Wong says a guy is valid,then take it to the bank!
