Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do is a hybrid martial arts system and life philosophy founded by martial artist Bruce Lee with direct, non-classical and straightforward movements. It focusses on minimal movement with maximum effect and extreme speed.
The system works using a range of techniques (Kicking, Punching, Trapping and Grappling), able to flow smoothly together. It is referred to as a "style without style". Unlike more traditional martial arts, Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned, and is a philosophy with guiding thoughts. It was named for the concept of interception, or attacking your opponent while he is about to attack.
Lee himself often referred to it as "the art of expressing the human body". Through his studies, he came to believe that styles had become too rigid, and unrealistic. He believed that combat was spontaneous, and that a martial artist cannot predict it, only react to it, and that a good martial artist should "be like water", or move fluidly without hesitation.
