Ah my friend you too are a fool and clearly know not what you speak of. Jeet Kune Do is something that Bruce Lee developed as something for himself. It was not necessarily ment for the general public. It was developed from Bruce's main style, Wing Chun, and combined what he thought would be necessary and what wouldn't. Bruce also said that if he could take back JKD he would. Although it was said that if he had completed his Wing Chun training, he probably wouldnt have created JKD.
