I remember seeing a documentary about Lee. It interviewed famous black Americans who considered Lee a hero of theirs as well just because he wasn't white and he could kick butt like no one else. I bought this book back in the 80's and still have it. There's philosophy, art and, of course, martial arts.
It is a testimony to a truly fascinating life. I don't agree with all the philosophy, b During my adolescence Bruce Lee was a hero of mine. I don't agree with all the philosophy, but I appreciate the depths to which Bruce Lee lived his art. It transformed him and the world around him.

So good. No one says it better than Bruce Lee himself Jun 15, Andrewcharles rated it it was ok Shelves: This is a collection of tips and techniques from Bruce Lee about his martial arts technique. There is very little structure to the book, and it's not something one should read cover to cover. The whole collection of material gives some insight into Bruce Lee's way of thinking--perhaps most This is a collection of tips and techniques from Bruce Lee about his martial arts technique.
The whole collection of material gives some insight into Bruce Lee's way of thinking--perhaps most especially the diagrams, drawings and hand-written notes by BL scattered through the text. Even as such it's a difficult read--there are many sections that are just collections of essentially one-liners, frequently overlapping each other in material and even words, and then at other times barely related to each other.
As a training manual it does tell you how and where to move your body, but doesn't come near the utility of a video or live instructor. Dec 09, Paul rated it it was amazing. There is a reason why, more than 20 years after his death, that Bruce Lee is still getting articles about his way and his own personal technique written in magazines and why he is still revered by so many.
This book is a good example of the reasons why. The important thing though is to learn from his example, understand it, and then create your own method instead of just following it. Great book with detailed information about Jeet Kune Do and the philosophy behind it. Although it's incomplete but it's satisfying to read Lee's philosophy. A must read for those who are interested in this matter. Jan 10, Norm rated it it was amazing. It was just a name Bruce Lee reluctantly coined because he felt he had to call it something.
He was concerned that, once named, his approach to Martial Arts could be misinterpreted or exploited. Anyway, 40 years after Bruce Lee's death, this volume and the 4 paperback volumes of "Bruce Lee's Fighting Method" now also available in one Hardcover volume offer, in my opinion, the best overview of his practica Jeet Kune Do JKD was never meant to be a specific style, or another form of martial art.
Anyway, 40 years after Bruce Lee's death, this volume and the 4 paperback volumes of "Bruce Lee's Fighting Method" now also available in one Hardcover volume offer, in my opinion, the best overview of his practical and philosophical views on unarmed combat.
They were originally compiled and edited by Gilbert Johnson.
Since each section is a compilation of separate notes, there is much duplication of material, but I never felt this was a problem.
Some sections include reproductions of Bruce's original hand-written notes. The Expanded edition published in contains additional introductions and commentary and has been rearranged and remastered.
I have copies of both, but I think either volume, separately, is worth owning. There's a lot of information here and the reader could spend a lifetime practicing, refining and discarding the material presented in these pages. Rather than forcing his students to fit one mold or style, Bruce tailored his training methods to fit the needs and balance the limitations of his students.
The living, breathing person was far more important than any style. Bruce would encourage his students to "absorb what is useful" and discard whatever didn't work for them. So, in a sense, each student followed his own, personal, course of Jeet Kune Do instruction. The "Tao" offers the reader an intriguing look at the art of unarmed combat, by the most celebrated Martial Artist of our time.
I read this book for the philosophy not for the martial arts but as a former martial arts practitioner it was interesting to see the basic review of the approach to Jeet Kune Do-- many of Bruce Lee's approaches have been incorporated into modern Kung Fu. At its essence Tao of Jeet Kune Do is two thick slices of Philosophy at the beginning an end with a serving of Martial arts in between. It is there where Bruce Lee is most poignant.
What brought me to this book: I've been looking for books that r I read this book for the philosophy not for the martial arts but as a former martial arts practitioner it was interesting to see the basic review of the approach to Jeet Kune Do-- many of Bruce Lee's approaches have been incorporated into modern Kung Fu. I've been looking for books that refer to methodologies of operating with a clear mind. Surprising very little is written in the way of how to deliberately practice these techniques.
A mentor recalled that Bruce Lee touches on this topic in this book.
You might ask why Lee would touch on such a subject—but its clear. In his short time on earth Bruce had pushed himself to the limits of human accomplishment; such physical feats were only possibly because Bruce Lee managed to master his mind as well as his body.
More specifically through mental mastery, he mastered his body. Philosophical points: In the book Bruce Lee outlines his philosophical underpinnings for his great achievement. For this reason I give this book four stars- though for those interested in this book for its philosophical merits—I propose reading only the opening and closing chapters, but read them again and again.

For years I have been wanting to get my hands on this book, because I have been a fan of Bruce Lee since I was born. This book discusses how Jeet Kune Do is not just some fighting style, or like what Mr. Each page has what reminds me of stanzas in a poem, 10 rows with two to three sentences each.
Jotting his explanations on how one must use their entire body to strike at someone else's entire body, like the eyes, and towards the groin. I loved this book, both analytically, and spiritually.
This felt like meditation, showing me how our minds can affect our outcomes. This was a wake up call to me because I felt that I have been slacking on maintaining my health and overall well being.
After reading this, I felt more persistent and confident on going to the gym every week and take care of myself. The book did a great job at making me realize that. It was a blast experiencing this book.
Rest in Peace Bruce Lee. Jun 05, Stuart rated it liked it. It's an awkward one. On the one hand, this is a glimpse into the notebooks of arguably the most important person in the popularisation of martial arts and a good look at the training philosophy of someone whose approaches to breaking down the formality of traditional martial arts have really taken off in the past thirty years. On the other hand, we have to remember that what a book does for the reader is also important.
It's not, for example, going to provide a comprehensive guide to the core tec It's an awkward one. It's not going to provide the kind of clear insight into Bruce Lee's life that a good biography might. Large parts of it aren't even that original, since, this being from notebooks, there are a lot of quotes Lee chose to paraphrase and keep, while I recognise some of the illustrations from other, earlier, sources.
In a way though, that's probably one of the more interesting elements of it. This scrap book full of collected ideas helps to show us something of the processes of a man who was forever fitting bits together from different places, whether ideas, fighting techniques, or personal philosophies.

Very good for the martial artist and athlete alike. This book really encouraged me to branch out in Martial Arts and learn the traditional sports like wrestling and boxing. Feb 23, John Scott rated it it was amazing. Great book from a great man. Feb 01, Toby rated it it was amazing. This book seems to lack a clear organisation and can sometimes be vague.
I have still found it very useful in consolidating what I learn in a class setting. It's not meant to teach you how to do Jeet Kune Do, but its more like a supplement to your training. My rating says 5 stars because it personally means a lot to me, however its probably more like Its recommended to anyone interested in Bruce Lee's philosophy and martial arts. Here is my This book seems to lack a clear organisation and can sometimes be vague.
Here is my review: I never saw Bruce as an unbeatable fighter, a legendary martial arts master, but he was more than just the movie entertainer. I see him as an excellent teacher and philosopher. Bruce was so ahead of his time, as a martial artist and as a teacher.
He criticises heavily the idea that learning depends on the absorption of fixed knowledge. Instead, he understood that learning must be done through application, experimentation, and ultimately adaptation to an alive and realistic environment. He does not see himself, the teacher, as the giver of knowledge, but simply a catalyst for the learner's own discovery. All knowledge is ultimately self-knowledge, and we only can discover this through application, self-expression and evaluation.
This is what certainly drew me into Bruce Lee. This view that learning is a constructive process, and not an end, and this comes through in the beginning of this book as he discusses his philosophy and mental approach to martial arts. He emphasises mindfulness, self-expression and adaptation in the learning process.
He then proceeds in this book by deconstructing the classical mess of martial arts, which are embedded in tradition and rigid doctrine, rather than rooted in any real "alive" application. He sets out to show that styles are an organised despair, which actually put limitations on their practitioners. Many techniques are not effective in the delivery of power, are over-complicated, and not practical. Bruce wanted to be liberated of the authoritative discipline of passing down martial arts, of imitating forms that reflected some ideal rather than reality.
Many take Bruce's philosophy of "absorbing what is useful, discarding what is useful and adding what is uniquely your own" to mean that once liberated from the classical mess, you are permitted to construct your own subjective take on martial arts. You can learn from all different kinds of sources and call that JKD, and you can do what works for you.
This is not the case. Bruce's idea that there is no objective truth or fixed knowledge however, shouldn't be taken to mean that any construction of reality is permitted. He also didn't view the addition of different approaches as necessary, he was more interested in stripping away the inessentials.
His philosophy means reality should be constructed through interaction and exploration, not by adhering to dogma. We must drop our prejudice so that we can see clearly and build knowledge through practice that corresponds to various connections in our web of pre-existing knowledge. What he sought out to do in response to the classical mess of martial arts was create a more applicable, constructive, and adaptable fighting method, based on the concepts of simplicity, directness and being alive.
A scientific approach to fighting. The techniques of Jeet Kune Do are based on scientific principles of proper body structure and mechanics in delivery. His study into physics, anatomy, western boxing, various other martial arts and fencing allowed him to come up with simple movements for the weapons of attack that were effective in multiplying force and could be generated with speed, and to identify effective targets of attack.
Having proper structure was important in attack, but alignment and balance in motion established footwork as the key vehicle behind the generation of attacks, as it allowed the transfer of weight into the targets.
Through sparring he discovered the need for techniques that were non-telegraphic and had economy of motion both to be effective and for conserving energy.
These are simply the tools for fighting, and learning these is not sufficient. Bruce understood that there was a disconnect in practitioners who could execute techniques properly or who understood principles, and the actual application of these techniques in a fight. If one adheres to these ideas alone, they simply become a mechanical fighter, who have failed to test themselves and learn strategies to adapt to situations.
Thus, the next aspect of Jeet Kune Do that Bruce emphasised is the "alive" aspect. Through sparring, and drills that simulate real life situations, and through setting up an open learning environment that included multiple perspectives, Bruce tested the application of the techniques.
He outlines in this book the numerous qualities that are important to cultivate in order to be in control of your techniques precision, coordination, endurance, balance, speed etc.. He also explains the preliminaries of attacking feints, parries, manipulations. Most importantly to me, again he found that, like in boxing and fencing, mobility and footwork are the essence of fighting.
Footwork is what allows you to evade attacks of your opponents, gain superior positioning through broken rhythm, creating angles and regulating distance. The upper body movements are important as well, as they accompany attacking and defensive manoeuvres and maintain balance, but these all begin and end with the feet. He discusses the importance of learning to judge distance, and understanding fighting ranges, so that attacks can be executed properly and defence can be achieved through maintaining distance.
He discusses the importance of timing, cadence and rhythm, in order to establish control over your opponents movements. Mobility establishes evasiveness and as the prime means of defence, which is constantly shown to be most effective compared to blocks. Bruce is also quick to explain that a fighter should never force himself into being on the offence or defence, but to seamlessly flow between attack and evasion by regulating distance with proper footwork to achieve an "aggressive defence".
Next he explains the preparations needed to set up attack, after which he puts forth numerous applications of the tools in attack. He discusses simple and compound attacks, counter attack and time hits along with the riposte and renewed attacks. The tactics of the application of these most basic attacks are discussed. Finally there are valuable discussions of the applications of these and various strategies in fighting explored in this book as they apply to different "types of fighters" or situations.
Bruce is extremely well researched and trained in fighting, and he breaks down the complexities of a fight well to show that, counter to the classical approach, the simple basics are all that is needed to seize and create opportunities. To Bruce, fighting is about being aware, reading situations and reactions, recognising tendencies and training to respond effectively through simple and direct means. There should be a natural flow to fighting, a reliance on instincts and trained movements, yet ultimately purposeful movements still must be calculated, thus his philosophy of maintaining "natural unnaturalness".
However, since fighting is alive, there is always an inherent unpredictability to things, and the awareness of this is also important. It is also about understanding your own abilities and tendencies, and developing the flexibility to adapt to unforeseen situations.
This philosophy is so essential to my practice of the martial arts, and even to some extent other areas of my life. Its liberating and also humbling and honest. You are not learning through imitation, you are not trying to encompass all into a system, you are simply adapting through exploration of your environment. You are not training to be the victor, to achieve some goal, you are not living for some higher meaning, you are simply in a state of constant learning, constant change.
I see this contribution to martial arts as revolutionary, both in terms of the methods it presents for the martial arts, and the suggestions it has for how to practice and learn.
I also see it as incomplete. I feel it lacks structure and clarity in some aspects, and that Bruce was still in the midst of his journey when writing this. Had he not died, he may have made a much more concise and comprehensive book. The insights are nevertheless irreplaceable and fundamental to my learning of the art.

I purchased this book right after watching the movie "Dragon: The bulk of these writings would become the "core set of writings". Many of these writings were done during a single session which provided natural continuity. Lee had also kept various notes throughout the development of his combat philosophy and these would become the disparate notes used in the book. Many of these notes were "sudden inspirations" which were incomplete and lacked any kind of a construct.
The combination of the "core set of writings" and the "disparate notes" would be known as the text Tao of Jeet Kune Do. In , it was Lee's intent to finish the treatise that he started during his convalescence.
However, his film career and work prevented him from doing so. He also vacillated about publishing his book as he felt that this work might be used for the wrong purposes. Lee's intent in writing the book was to record one man's way of thinking about the martial arts. It was to be a guidebook not a set of instructions or "How to" manual to learn martial arts. In , after Bruce Lee's death, his widow Linda Lee Cadwell decided to make available the information her husband had collected.
Lee's untimely death changed the perspective of releasing the information that Bruce Lee had vacillated about. The "core writings" and various notes were put together in a logical fashion by various editors. The main editor was Gilbert L. The book is dedicated to: The Free, Creative Martial Artist.
Lee's wife, Linda Lee Cadwell holds the copyright to the book. The book is attributed to Bruce Lee as his notes and work were used to compile the book.
It is important to understand that although Lee's material was utilized it was not organized by him; therefore Bruce Lee was not strictly its author. Tao of Jeet Kune Do was compiled posthumously from Bruce Lee's personal notes, some of which were in turn copied from Bruce Lee's personal library of martial arts and philosophical books.
After the book's initial publication, additional passages were discovered to have been sourced from the works of D. Suzuki , Eric Hoffer, and other authors. Many of Bruce Lee's statements are derived from his own studies of various schools of philosophy and the martial arts, and are sometimes paraphrases of previous expressions by others which he wrote down for his own instruction into his own words. In the Tao of Jeet Kune Do was first made available only in paperback.
The forgoing statement is attributed to Black Belt Magazine and the source data is at http:Also known as, "Way of The Intercepting Fist".
