Jeet Kune Do was really the first of the mixed martial arts, Bruce Lee realised that a real fighter needed to be able to fight in all ranges- kicking, punching, elbow/headbutt range and grappeling / ground work. Many people think Bruce Lee was all flying kicks as per his films but he was a street fighter and in street fights would bite, straight blast, elbow headbutt, anything to finish the fight ( virtually no kicks, as on the street this is suicide)
JKD is very individual to suit what someone wants to know but many people claim to teach JKD when they really just throw arts together, which isnt the same thing. Real Jeet Kune Do is about feeling and reacting to your aggressor not techniques from any specific art.
Im a Jeet Kune Do teacher but mine is the PFS / SEAL Jeet Kune Do which isnt sport fighting but out and out street fighting survival- biting, gouging, elbows, knees, headbutts etc. not pretty stuff, as real fights arent pretty. Its get in finish them off and get out. My teachers have been Paul Vunak and Mike Faraone.
not sure if the above on Jeet Kune Do info was what you wanted or whether its bored you to death- which I suppose in a way would still be a form of defence.
