    I luv Jun Fan JKD. I've been doing it for many years at the Inosanto Academy and also with Ted Wong, Jerry Poteet.

    What i don't like is how many people put different stuff together and call it JKD.

    Here's Yori Nakamura (Jun Fan JKD instructor at Inosanto Academy) demonstrating some basic interceptions.

    there are so many branches of JKD so it's hard to say but the inosanto line is really legit and so are the sbg guys.

    JKD is a great system, very effective for the ring or the street. But there are a lot of fake masters out there that just take a mishmash of everything and call it JKD. It's best to go to the original source and read as much as you can in addition to your training. The only criticism I have is the fact that probably 80 percent of the techniques involve striking with your lead hand and leg. It's not well balanced in that way. What happens if you're out of position to use your lead weapons or one of them is hurt? But aside from that, no other criticism I can think of.

    As Im Studing This Art Of Jun Fan JKD I relize some of the Interceptions are great for MMA Espically the Brawlers and Some of the counter Kicks work well against some of The MT And Kickboxing Low Kicks...
