Have fun, man. I used to study MT a little bit in college -- nothing like having a line of bruises from your shins up to get weird looks in high-level English classes. I'd like to study something again, mostly because I always feel better when I'm training, and I don't use my heavy bag enough as is. Maybe something like Aikido -- I'm a little skeptical of the self-defense uses of the art, but it certainly looks fun.

From my understanding (which is that JKD was founded on the principle that you should always be looking for what works for you as an individual, and, finding it, integrate it into your greater style), JKD is almost more like a philosophy of martial arts (or almost anything else, if you modify it a little) than anything. Sure, there are schools that advertise JKD (I can only assume that they teach specifics that I seem to recall from reading The Tao of Jeet Kune Do... emphasis on cutting down on superfluous movements, preemption, and the like) , but you can just as easily study JKD while attending a school that advertises just about any other fighting style as well, if I have the basic notion of JKD right. (Perhaps you could better inform me, having studied it.) Personally, I think forms like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu derived from a JKD mindset. Maybe all martial arts forms started that way.

It also helps that there are shit all martial arts schools in my area, as far as I know. One Aikido dojo, a couple places for Tae Kwon Do, a Bushido academy, and... ahem... aerobic kickboxing.

JKD was mainly formed by Bruce Lee while bed-ridden and reading and re-reading his vast library of MA books as I recall. Being a pure Martial Artist and being unable to get off your backside can do that for you I guess.

I get a penny here and there - it's like a flock of doves left and each of them pooped 1c into my account.

What the medications can't do - let Floyd do the rest.

*sigh* Used to be a good site.

Cobalt - My friends Step-Dad teaches Jeet Kune Do so it can be learn't. The Tao and philosophy is only 1 aspect of it. However if Jeet Kune Do doesn't do it for you then take a look at Krav Maga.

MikkeD - Yes, we've all seen the film "Dragon"

Staphros - Muchos amusant. I must have missed the one inch punch arm bar session.

I knew a lot about the life of Bruce Lee many years before the film 'Dragon', although I do have the film also. I have a BL biography and many other MA books - I used to be a MA student myself many years ago.
