I understand that you are referring to a ;whole'.

Would that be be something absolute.

No more art to be added?

What is the whole?

There is no whole yet.

Shayne-Do-Kai is yet to be developed.

jeet kune do now that it has incorparated gracie ju jitsu approaches a more wholeistic approach.

bruce lee was good.........he also incorparted aspect of wrestleing into his studies.

hes not the end word though.

hickson gracie......studied jeet kune do with paul vunak ( i think , not to sure about this one )

me personally i lost a fight to .....( secret ).

but then again i had no practical fighting experience to back it up.

being a armchair warrior dont count.

jeet kune dos lack of key or knack of a technique is evidant.

they have moves.

aikido addresses the issue.

learn the key or knack of a technique and you know all its moves and can make up some on the fly.

steven sigeal said he practiced and practiced till one day he say down and meditated on his art. then he got good.

so being a armchair warrior isnt all bad.

now this old man just needs to get back in shape.

but where to begin in my regime?

yoga first.

followed by isometric exerciss and plyometrics.

gooooooooodddddddddddddd stuff.

tai chis elaborate dissection on a intellectual basis is overwhelming.

not needed.

its enoufe to say when pushed pull.

of course im over simplyifing it.

but it IS too intellectual.

too logical.

what is that martial art?

ummm

ahhhhh,

huh?

hahahaah.

i forget.

in attempting to remember a particular martial art i forget it.

hahahahahhaha.

jeff speekman practices it.

he played in the perfect weapon.

anyway the key or knack of that particular martial art is -

short arm and leg bursts followed by reactions of a person. sometimes the same punching arm following through again in rapid succession.

anyway i want to use THAT as my basis for anerobic exercise.

kenpo karates lack of power strokes..........( not saying it dont have a few ) is its downfall. but the ability to deliver many strokes is kenpos good point.

for example.

you punch someone in the stomach. the head comes down. with the same arm you uppercut to the jaw. the distance traveled LACKS the power.

kenpo is good stuff though.

it incorparates many jeet kuno do moves/techniques.

but they are only moves and technique is lacking.

What is the experience of winning a fight?

Watch a bit of fight club maybe??

Miyamoto Mushashi, Have a read.

What is the experience of overcoming the fear of loosing????????????

Are you allowed to be the victor???????

Train, train, train, train.

You might win without knowing winning.

Soldier boy.

Very few warriors in the warrior class.

Mushashi spoke of the void in a book called 'The Book of Five Rings'.

Domo arrigato gozia masta. Japanese for 'please instruct me'.

sorry..i was wrong when i said jeet kune do dont have technique. they have certain techniques.

but its not like tai chi where you learn the essence.

and its not like aikido where you learn the knack.
