    JKD was never intended to be a style. It's a training philosophy that includes learning different styles but not adhering to any style. People who say they teach "Bruce Lee's style" are going against what Bruce Lee taught and believed.

    My school used to train "JKD kickboxing". It's now mainly a mixed martial arts or multiple style school that focuses on cross training. We still have Inosanto seminars. The guy is like 80 years old and is still a horse.

    question doesn't really make sense. JKD is about training specific aspects of many different martial arts that work for you personally and tailoring it into your own fighting style.

    I totally understand that.
    Fighting has evolved so much since Bruce has been around.

    I went to my first session of JKD yesterday and in my first half an hour of class i learned more about combos and real fighting than i did at 5 months in my mma gym.

    I did learn a lot of good fundamentals, but most of the people there don't take classes seriously. There are advance classes but it did not fit well into my schedule so i started looking for a new gym.

    First half an hour we did a few combos with trapping, parrying, slapping.
    And then half an hour of pad training using similar techniques.

    Then was my favourite part of the class, STREET FIGHTING.
    He taught us combos that utilized eye raking, head butts, knees to the nuts.

    We also did some Filipinos knife fighting i think its called Kali but i'm not sure.

    We did some weapon disarming and finished the class with some medicine ball conditioning.

    The class was 2 hours and i did not sweat much but i learnt alot of technique that i'll be practicing on the bag.

    I just wanted to get any input from any OTers who have or are training JKD.

    I'm a huge nerd for science and I've read a few books that just makes JKD seem so much more effective/efficient compared to most traditional forms of martial arts.

    I might go to a Krav Maga class on Saturday just to see how they teach.

    I have taken both JKD classes when I was younger and a few KM classes about two years ago.....It is completely different fighting techniques than MMA....

    I think almost anything is effective if you train in it long enough......

    id say wushu kung fu is a lot better at teaching your body how to move properly. I've seen it broken down and done. Pretty neat.

    (better than cap)

    totally depends on capoeira style. most of the ones you will see in the US, and even in southern parts of brasil (rio/sao paulo) don't adhere to the contextual philosophy and kinematics of the old styles. capoeira was an art refined by dock/boat workers at ports in salvador who were used to manipulating heavy objects around their bodies and over their heads all day long. to not become crippled from that type of manual labor requires knowledge about how to move properly and keep limbs in structural alignment. look at pictures of old players (waldermar, traira, joao pequeno) and you can see capoeiristas with immense upper bodies. and their capoeira style wasn't just all kicks - it was an art of headbutting, take downs and throws. of course these are all executed with open hand techniques (no grabbing). kicks are only supposed to be used to move someone into a position when you can take them down so the soft part of their head lands on the ground. when someone is inside your guard there are all sorts of knee and elbow strikes too. acrobatics are a more modern interpretation of the skills needed to catch yourself if you were thrown. heh, and don't forget about the straight razor golpes (opening the razor, cutting across opponent's centerline and closing it in one fluid arm arc) and long fish knives players would hold in their hands so the blade rested along the underside of their forearms. jogo de faca no mao - muito bom!
