Birth of Jeet Kune Do

In 1967, Bruce Lee started a Martial Arts School with Dan Inosanto in the role of the head instructor in Chinatown District of Los Angeles . Through this period of time Bruce began incorporating fencing basic principles to his martial art. His front hand finger jab was applied in a very similar technique to a Western fencing foil. He modified fencing strikes into the five ways of attack. The majority principle of all he took was effective defensive technique, which intercept your opponent’s attack with a stop hit.

Bruce Lee felt that having the ability to stop hit is so most important that he called his art “Jeet Kune Do” which translates to mean “the way of the intercepting fist“. Nevertheless interception can be utilised in several ways. It can intercept your opponent as he advances or maybe even before he initiates to advance in his attack, it can certainly function as an obstruction or even a preventative gauge in avoiding an oncoming blow.
