JEET KUNE DO (The Way of the Intercepting Fist)
Entrance Requirements: Must be good or have a discipline on honor.
Skill Cost: 14 years (7 years as secondary)

The Way of the Intercepting Fist was created by a young man who grew up studying at the Hong Kong Shaolin Temple in the 1960s. While training in the main Shaolin style, he and a young nun fell in love, and she secretly trained him in the woman-only style of Ng Mui Wing Chun. After a series of adventures fighting the Triads, he was forced to escape to the Civil Rights-era United States, where he had further adventures fighting racist whites attacking Chinese immigrants, racist Chinese attacking him for teaching his art to all races, the Italian mafia, and others. As he travelled, he taught martial arts and experimented, shedding elements of his previous training that he felt were too restrictive, integrating concepts from Western Boxing, Savate, Judo, and Escrima, and developed his own style emphasizing a flexible mindset and the idea of attacking the opponent’s movement and intent. After a decade he found himself back in Hong Kong as a film actor and returned to the Hong Kong Shaolin Temple to demonstrate his findings in a leitai (platform-based Chinese boxing) match. While there, he was recruited by British intelligence to infiltrate a criminal organization led by a renegade Shaolin monk. Shortly after defeating this organization, he was found dead, causes unknown. To this day, it is thought he may have been poisoned by the Triads, murdered by Dim Mak by the Touch Masters, or by a Ng Mui Wing Chun practitioner to punish him for learning their system and revealing portions of it to the public.

In combat, a Jeet Kune Do practitioner will seek to intercept the opponent’s movement or intention with a lead leg kick called a Jittek, a lead leg finger jab called a Biuzi, or a lead straight punch. If they cannot attack first, they will counter during or after their opponent’s attack. A JKD practitioner’s idea of defense is counter attacking. If the opponent defends, the JKD practitioner will attempt to remove the obstruction with a Combination Hand Hold/Strike, called a Hand Immobilization Attack or Trap. Once the JKD practitioner has the advantage, they will finish the opponent with a series of punches & kicks or take him to the ground. At it’s highest level, the JKD practitioner will seek to intercept the conflict before it even begins, thus earning the name “the Way of Fighting Without Fighting”.

He left behind three instructors in the US, one who has since passed away. Of the remaining two, one teaches in a small kwoon in Los Angeles. The other teaches privately in Seattle and rarely accepts new students. Both take their mentor’s legacy very seriously, and only accept those with dedicated to personal development physically and mentally.

I tried to practise this, when I saw first movies with Bruce Lee.
Then there was a TV show about Bruce. Here I saw all his fight skills, his dexterity, his cool punches and others.
In childhood, this all made an incredible impression on me and my friends and I immediately started to do it.
But since there were no such sections then I went to karate)
