Jeet Kune Do – The Textbook goes beyond “how to”
into the qualities and combative motions that make
the tools work. The technique will always be important,
but to be successful also takes an understanding of the
timing and purpose behind the moves.
It is qualities such as balance, precision, speed,
awareness, distance, and attitude that make the tools
found in JKD work so well. JKD experts believed that
you could cultivate these qualities through drilling. The
JKD training in this book is a natural progression that
goes beyond the old progressive one-step sparring to
all-out sparring with nothing in between.
Authors Chris Kent and Tim Tackett, world-renowned
for their decades of teaching jeet kune do, lead you on
a journey into the various aspects of the” way of the
intercepting fist” and allows you to see the overall picture.
In the end, the book is about the “when” and “why” as
well as the “how-to.”
