The Three Facets to Jeet Kune Do

1. Non-Classical:
That is, there were and are no classical postures, no unrealistic footwork, no mechanical body movements, no dissection of movement (i.e. "first you do this, then you do this, and then you do this," etc.) as if it were a corpse. Further, there are no two-man cooperation drills and no rhythmic forms. Instead, the art is "alive" and infused with broken rhythm.

2. Directness:
There is no passive defense, blocking is considered the least efficient manner of defense. Everything in the art is stripped to its essential components with absolutely no fancy decoration or ornate movements (i.e., if somebody grabs you, punch him!). Students are taught to see reality in its such-ness and not deliberate about it. Simply experience it as it is, when it is. As if, when someone throws something to you, you catch it - you don't first grunt and go into a horse stance. And similarly, when someone grabs you, you hit him - you don't get involved in elaborate joint manipulations and complex maneuvering.

3. Simplicity:
a. A daily minimize instead of a daily increase (being wise doesn't mean to "add" more, being wise means to be able to get off sophistication and be simply simple)
b. The three stages in Jeet Kune Do
1- Sticking to the Nucleus
2- Liberation from the Nucleus
3- Returning to the original freedom

Or:
"Before I studied the art, a punch was just like a punch, a kick was just like a kick. After I studied the art, a punch is no longer a punch, a kick is no longer a kick. Now that I understood the art, a punch is just like a punch, a kick is just like a kick."


Original Jun Fan Interactive Focus Mitt Drills "1 - 2 Series"

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab. Then student Bob/weaves the cross and follows up with hook/cross/hook and any two kicks of their choice.

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab and throws a rollback/Jeet Tek to deal with cross. Student then follows up with cross/hook/cross and any two kicks of their choice.

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab and then throws straightlead (cut punch) to deal with cross. Then student follows up with cross/hook/cross and any two kicks of their choice

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab and then uses a shoulder shop to deal with cross. Then student follows up with cross/hook/cross and any two kicks of their choice

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab. Then student slips the cross while throwing a cross/with lead hand parry (Split Entry). Student follows up with hook/cross/hook and any two kicks of their choice.

· Feeder throws Jab/Cross combination. Student catches jab and deals with cross with a ‘cover/drop step’. Student then follows up with cross/hook/cross and any two kicks of their choice.

Note: These drills are done several ways. First they should be done “as is” to learn the correct energy and motions of the drill. Then you must make them alive with both footwork and the proper intensity level. 

You can then add to the drill by making them more interactive. Before each drill, use these methods as well as come up with some of your own:
· Have a feeder/student jab exchange with the feeder acting as the initiator. 
· Have the student initiate the drill by throwing a jeet tek (or any technique) and the feeder counter the students attack with the start off the drill.
