(original title: Bruce Lee vs Classical Martial Arts) Concerning an accurate analysis of Jeet Kune Do Martial Arts... Bruce Lee hit like a rocket, and passed just as quickly. Yet the effects of this extraordinary martial artist are being felt to this day. Is his Martial Art, Jeet Kune Do, The Way of the Intercepting Fist, really a great martial art? Is it the best martial art in the world, as some claim? The answers are in this book, 'Matrixing Jeet Kune Do, ' by Al Case. Matrixing is the first and only science of the martial arts. Using Matrixing graphs and principles, Mr. Case holds Jeet Kune Do up to a scientific light. Some of the conclusions are quite surprising. Did Bruce really destroy the 'Gunfighter Concept' prevalent in the martial arts of the time? Or replace it with his own version? What are the systematic observations he made to estimate the worth (or strategy) of a fighter? How good is the 'method' (and, yes, there is a method to Bruce's art), that Bruce designed? Question after question is answered as the author goes through Jeet Kune Do in a systematic manner. The principles of JKD are dissected, the truth and worth of such things as 'The Five Ways of Attack, ' and the Five Points of Attack, and Bruce's unique way of looking at timing, are laid out, compared and contrasted, and made understandable in a way that is totally scientific, and therefore unique. Matrixing Jeet Kune Do is definitely one of the most essential books any Martial Artist can add to his library. About the Author: Al Case began martial arts in 1967. He studied Kenpo, Karate, Wing Chun, Northern Shaolin, Southern Shaolin, Pa Kua Chang, Tai Chi Chuan, and more. In 1981 he began writing articles for the martial arts magazines, and was asked to write his own column for Inside Karate. He is the originator of Matrixing technology.

"The straight punch is the core of Jeet Kune Do."—Bruce Lee The straight lead was a key element in Bruce Lee's development of his own personal style. It was designed to be uncomplicated, economical, and brutally effective but is not as simple as it might seem. Bruce Lee once described it the most difficult move in the Jeet Kune Do arsenal. Lee developed JKD as a response to the shortcomings he found in traditional martial arts, but it also includes elements of Western combat systems that he found effective. It incorporates contributions ranging from Jack Dempsey's approach to boxing to the fencing style of Aldo Nadi. In The Straight Lead: The Core of Bruce Lee's Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, author Teri Tom describes the development of the straight punch in Western martial arts, and describes Bruce Lee's refinement of the technique. It also offers a thorough instruction in the complexity and power of the move—showing martial artists of any discipline how to incorporate this devastating attack into their repertoire. With forewords by Shannon Lee Keasler and Ted Wong, chapters include: A Brief History of Straight Punching Evolution of Jeet Kune Do's Straight Lead The Stance Mechanics of the Straight Lead Footwork Why the Straight Lead?
