Although much has been written about Jeet Kune Do, the art of Bruce Lee remains an enigma, spawning endless debate about what constitutes the art and how it should be taught and applied. "Understanding Jeet Kune Do" is vastly different from the books on Bruce Lee's martial art that have preceded it, offering a fresh and simple look at the mystery that is Jeet Kune Do. In "Understanding Jeet Kune Do," author Jason Korol demonstrates: -that Jeet Kune Do is the science of self-defense - not a mere concept or, for that matter, just a conglomeration of other arts. -what the basis for a rationally consistent method of self-defense is and how Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do is consistent with that method. -a logically consistent definition of self-defense and explore its ethical, technical, and strategic corollaries. -why certain aspects of Lee's Jeet Kune Do must be taught as is - as the foundation of the method - or else it ceases to be Jeet Kune Do. "Understanding Jeet Kune Do" will have a unique appeal to Jeet Kune Do enthusiasts and the average martial artist that wants to gain a better understanding about the art of Jeet Kune Do.
