WHAT IS JKD?

This is from wikipedia:

“Jeet Kune Do, abbreviated JKD, is an eclectic and hybrid style fighting art heavily influenced by the philosophy of martial artist Bruce Lee, who founded the system in 1967, referred it as “non-classical”, suggesting that JKD is a form of Chinese Kung Fu, yet without form. Unlike more traditional martial arts, Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned, and is a philosophy with guiding thoughts. It was named for the Wing Chunconcept of interception or attacking while one’s opponent is about to attack. Jeet Kune Do practitioners believe in minimal movements with maximum effects and extreme speed. The system works by using different “tools” for different situations, where the situations are divided into ranges, which are kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling, where martial artists use techniques to flow smoothly between them.

In the screenplay of the 1973 Warner Brothers film, Enter the Dragon, when Lee is asked, “What’s your style?” Lee replied, “My style?…You can call it the art of fighting without fighting.” Thus one may also ideologically define JKD simply as the Bruce Lee Kung Fu or the Bruce Lee style of Kung Fu.

The name Jeet Kune Do was often said by Lee to be just a name, and he often referred to it as “the art of expressing the human body” in his writings and in interviews. Through his studies Lee came to believe that styles had become too rigid and unrealistic. He called martial art competitions of the day “dry land swimming”. He believed real combat was spontaneous, and a martial artist can not predict it, but, only react to it, and a good martial artist should “be like water”—move fluidly without hesitation”.

PERSONAL TRAINER

I have put my JKD training on hold because of the last injury but it does not mean I will ever stop, what I am doing now is making myself stronger to avoid this really tough situation I have been living in for months now.

I have now started with morning trainings with a personal trainer, first to get advice on what I do wrong and then on how I can build muscle  and avoid injuries and stuff.

This morning was the first session it felt very good. I will use the information I got and train by myself twice a week and my PT says it should build some serious grounds just were I need them so I am more than happy and look forward to meet her again next week.

This saturday I booked myself to a yoga class just because of my unhability to relax, I need to see if this could help . Then maybe I will also have to add a swimming time during the weekend, I actually used to compete as a young girl, that made my think that it could also be a good thing for my back. So right now the weekly  plan is:  3-4 times at the gym, one morning session a week with my PT, one swimming session and maybe one yoga session if I like it ( can´t garanty that yet ). After some time I should be both stronger and maybe bigger which means I am going to come back strong and kick som serious A…. 🙂

Back is not back !

No really when will  this problem with my back be solved? whatever treatment I tried these days  it made it worse , now I stopped it all and go back to the gym to start all over again. Next step is a personal trainer who I hope will give me good advice on how to train my back , back in shape and back in normal functionality !

Some say I am too old for this sh…. I say I am too young for this Crap! Enough with the problems and on with the training for God sake! It  has been going on for a while now, it seems anytime I feel I am back something goes wrong and I am down again.

It feels  like I don´t get to reach my goals , you know what one of the principles of JKD is?  first to not let anyone take you down and if you end up down anyway ,get the hell back up ! so no I won´t let this destroy me! everything I tried did not work? well I am gonna try something else but I won´t give up training my friend !
