Since the death of Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do has evolved into two distinct groups. One group proliferating and staying with the original teachings of Jeet Kune Do and the other group believing in the evolution of Jeet Kune Do, using other arts in combination with Jeet Kune Do to create a “personal” expression of JKD. Whatever you believe in, original or concepts, both have very compelling reasons to follow their chosen path.
Now I don’t like to talk about the politics within the arts, but in this case the politics or differing beliefs has defined modern Jeet Kune Do. Unlike the traditional martial arts whose originators have long passed, Jeet Kune Do is a relatively young art. First generation students like Dan Inosanto and Ted Wong are still passing their knowledge on to new generations while also passing on their personal beliefs on Jeet Kune Do.
