Niin noh, mistä on hukkunut ja mistä ei. Kaikkia ei voi laittaa samalle viivalle, tässäkään asiassa.[
For example, Funakoshi said that deep stances are for beginners and high stances are for advanced, he also said Long movements are for beginners and short movement are for advanced.
To me this means that all those basic postures are for beginners to learn stability, grounded power etc. When you have this you move on to Fighting Stances. The same with Blocks. In the beginneng the movemenst of the blocks are big, but the basic inward block becomes simply a short snap like a boxing parry for the advanced.
I believe that Karate has lost the advanced techniques, I mean why would a Karate practitioner otherwise train these deep stances and big movenets after 40 years of Karate. I believe it is becuase they are only imitating the basic motion of Shu, They haven't started researching what Funakoshin said what it meant to be a advanced student, or do they consider themselves beginners after 40 yeras.?
In JKD Traditional stances are part of Shu, the daily increse, minimizing it down to one On Guard Is
Ha, and if we chose jun fan On Guard our Ri is the same as Bruce Lee's
Millähän sen oikein mittaa, millä tasolla kukakin on? Lisäksi mistä tuo tieto, että Kano olisi ollut tuolla tasolla jo 18 vuotiaana?
To me it says that today it seams that it takes longer to get to Ri than before. If one establises a new personal style today, like Bruce Lee said the comments are often
-you are too young to start a own style,
- You don't have enough knowledge to create a style of your own.
No one said this to the students who left Funakoshi and created their own styles, or to Kano when he createde Judo. This is all I am saying with this statement
Olen asiasta eri mieltä, ellet tarkoita, että suurin osa klassisia tyylejä kokeilleista jää tuolle tasolle.
And I would ask you if you consider a 5 degree black belt a beginner since he is traing deep stances and big movements in blocks for his 6th grade, is he still a "kokeilija" becuase he is doing what Funakoshi described as beginner techniques and not advaced techniques. By the way, in Kung Fu they says "from big movements to small movementm no movement is best", Bruce Lee said that the best way is "the art of fighting without fighting", no movemnets required to beat an opponent
Ei siis Bruce Leen JKD:ksi kun luulin, että se oli tässä vähän niinku taka-ajatuksena?
To me JKD is JKD, if bruce used JKD On Guard, JKD strategy, JKD techniques i call it Jun fan JKD, Ted Wong chose the same techniques for his truth, so I call his JKD Ted Wong JKD, After all these years of research diffrent martial arts I have come to the conclusion that Jun Fan/Ted Wong On Guard works for me the best, the same with all the other tactics and theories, thereofore I wish that my stundets one day call my Jun fan/Ted Wong JKD for Jun fan/Ted Wong/SteFan JKD if they choose the same truth as I do.
No voit ajatella samoin yleensäkin grapplingista tai vaikka puukoista ja FMA:sta tai träppingistä ja Wing Chunista...
Niin, asiassa on aina monta puolta
Yes, and if you complement your FMA or Wing Chun with techniques from outside this style and not simply Mix FMA with Wing Chun with some Muay Thai, you are following Bruce Lee's way to the styleless style of FMA or Wing Chun. As Bruce Lee himself said you draw "the essence" of those styles, not the style and its techniques itself
Ilmaisin itseäni vähän huonosti. En väittänytkään etteikö klassisissa lajeissa voisi kehittyä samalla tavalla. Tarkoitin lähinnä sitä JKD:n ajattelutapaa, joka painottaa nimenomaan pyrkimään siihen omaan totuuteen. Eikö se ole loppujen lopuksi enemmän yksilöstä kiinni kuin lajista?
This is what I have been trying to say all these years on diffrent Forums, any style can become styleless personal and total in alla Fighting Ranges, you just have to have an open mind and complement your Judo with punching, kicking and weapons if you are truly following Bruce Lee'ssuggestion. What I stress is that simply becuase you make your Judo more complete by following Bruce Lee's advice it doesn't make JUDo into JKD, it is stil basically JUDO unless you use Jun fan On Guard, Jun fan kicking etc.
Tuli tuossa mieleen, että mulla on ehkä paha tapa ajatella JKD:tä liian mystisenä asiana. Harmi kun ei ainakaan vielä pääse itse kokeilemaan.
Well at least I would say that you are starting to understand the Jun fan JKD way of thinking, there is nothing mystique about Jun fan JKD, Jun fan JKD is a very simple style, but as my Sifu always says "Simple does not mean easy"
I hope to one day be in Finalnd teching JKD, butif you come to Swden, look me up and I will teach you some Jun fan JKD
