This is not as advanced as a stop hit but more effective than blocking and counterattacking in sequence. JKD teaches that the best defense is a strong offense, hence the principle of an “intercepting fist”.

I see him as an excellent teacher and philosopher. All of his studies on martial arts in one book.

It was during his convalescence that he decided to compile a treatise on the system or approach to martial arts that he was developing; he called it Jeet Kune Do. He stayed in bed, virtually flat on his back for six months, but he couldn’t keep his mind from working – From the Introduction: He used the jest mentality of beginning with a lump of clay and removing the material which constituted the “unessentials”; the end result was what he considered to be the bare combat essentials, or JKD.


This would make a great read for anyone that has ever been a fan of his or even had the slightest interest in martial arts. Be water, my friend. The Tao of Jeet Kune Do is an outline of the martial art.
