Philosophy of Bruce Lee

Bruce had studied philosophy in University of Washington. That was a solid base that helped him form his thoughts and ideals on life. He believed that many people do not react to a situation, but just do what they already know. This is similar to his thoughts on martial arts styles. Most styles restrict a person to a certain technique. Bruce did not like this, so through lots of work and consideration, he developed his own “style.” He named it Jeet Kune Do. The idea was to have no style. A person was not to block and then hit, but to block and hit all in one fluid motion. He expands on these thoughts in his books: Chinese Gung-Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self-Defense, Tao of Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun Kung-Fu. “True observation begins when devoid of set patterns, and freedom of expression occurs when one is beyond systems.” ”Be concerned with the ends, not the means. Master your own manipulation of force.” “A good martial artist does not become tense- but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming, Ready for whatever may come.”
