Bruce lee and jeet kune do

since bruce lee developed the concept of jeet kune do i was wondering if there were any students of jeet kune do out there that have adapted it in their own personal way ? if so how do you think you have helped to adapt.

Unless i am very mistaken, Jeet kune do is a principle, not a martial art as such. It is the principle basically that whatever works for you works for you, it is not "fixed" like other martial arts. So he combined kung fu, karate, and loads of different types of martial arts. Granted, you still need to know how to kick well etc, but bruce lee always said dont sweat the technique, he was more about sweating in the gym! Something the martial arts community didnt do so much back then

correction.... plenty of martial arts from different disciplines are found in Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do... but KARATE is never found in Jeet Kune Do..... where is the evidence or source that Karate is found in Jeet Kune Do?
