    Man. This is what I want to see. Somone with years of fight training doing a full contact 'LARP' with any dojo that has a mentality of.. 'I woont let them take me to the ground because...' and record the damn thing. The fact that some martial artists still have the ' I will not go to the ground because.. ' mentality is beyond me.

      So, is it fair to say that, grappling is a vital skill in any fight context and that on th3 str33t, with the possibility of multiple opponents and getting your brand new jeans scuffed. It would be best not to go to the ground.

      Control the fight, as Lu-Tse suggests....?

          So grapple, throw them, and don't go to the ground.

              jkd could not degrade into a tma because in order for that it would have to be a martial art in the first place.

              jkd is a mentality and mindset to basically "use whatever works for you".

              even in the tao of jeet kun do didn't bruce lee write that if jkd is ever considered a "style" let it die?

              I'm not saying its not legit stuff- most schools that teach under the banner of jkd teach the equivalent of kickboxing with stuff thrown in- not outlandish untested crap.

              I would think that these guys just need your friend to show em the truth. Not to crap on your friend, but thats his job as thier teacher.

                Im tired of hearing how 'jkd' is a mindset, a mentality of 'use what works'. So is every cage fight actualy a 'jkd' mindset/mentality match?

                  Well.... no, mainly because you won't see knives and sticks getting pulled in a cage fight.

                  I've been taught stuff that doesn't get used in the cage, such as destruction of limb techniques, (Pan o' toucan, not correct spelling, it's called in Kali i believe) trapping etc.

                    Only in the sense that you can use what works within that environment

                      You do realise that pretty much sums up what Bruce was saying? You are a JKD'er and didn't even know it!

                          actualy if you look at my earlier posts on my threads I was just reiterating what I already eluded too. Bruce Lee wasnt a god at martial arts like everyone wants to make him out to be. What Bruce WAS was a god of physical fitnes. Instead of all you nut huggers quoting versus of the Toa of Jeet Kun Do what you should be reading is the Toa of hitting a gym.

                            I don't know how it works over the water, but round here a toa is someone you call when your car breaks down.

                              I don't really see any nut-huggers in the thread. Also, a person can have a life outside of the gym with time enough to read, eat, sleep and have fun.

                                Already do that far more than most people do so I figure I can carry on quoting and tell you to relax and grow a sense of fucking humour

                                WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
