How Bruce Lee’s JKD Changed Martial Arts

You may know Bruce Lee is a movie star but if the truth be told, he’s actually much more than that. He is a pioneer, an innovator and a game changer in the world of martial arts. His discipline, the art of Jeet Kune Do, integrated Chinese martial arts to the consciousness of the Western World. His training methods were a first in the sense that they seemed radical with the implementation of his “using no way as way”. Although these changes were introduced in the 60’s and the 70’s, they are still respected and kept very much alive through practice until today.

Today’s era boasts of cross-training and mixed martial arts (MMA), and the easy acceptance is in part because of Bruce Lee’s immense influence in the craft. Bruce Lee’s influence is also seen in anyone who studies a traditional art and hates its many restrictions. You can thank Bruce Lee for that pluralist attitude that makes you want to study many different forms of martial arts.

Even in fighting and reality-based martial arts, you see Bruce Lee. For instance, MMA centers on the functional technique, mixing in several different ranges of fighting. In combatives, you see Jeet Kune Do by having to adapt to an attacker’s unchoreographed mêlée use of weapons, strikes and friends jumping on in to harm you. Martial artists today who like to think like Bruce Lee are also finding a way to extend the truths of JKD.

Remember that this initiative is what pushed Bruce Lee to become so inventive. There is definitely no telling how long Bruce’s influence in martial arts will last, and to what extent. However, still decades after his death, his original thoughts of adaptability have seemed to penetrate every combative environment from the ring to the street, dojo to gym.
