Nice Page. Glad to see some kind words about a lifestyle important to me.

For my part, I have the most admiration for Bruce Lee. is he the greatest or best? I’d not say. But then I spent enough time to grow from novice up into teaching JKD over 15 years or so. Our skills were observed and measured in sparring and then later in the skills of our students. No trophies. I’m a bit too old and banged up to jump back in that style, I must admit Escrima holds a lot of appeal when I seek a work out. Let the wood take the hits coming or going while I attempt to gain skill.

Sam, I’m a little unclear is that an article you wrote than added a conclusion or is that quoted?

A nice run down of modern Eastern martial arts. Check out HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) sometime for an interesting contrast.

Missing Jet Li, Chou Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh, and a whole bunch of others who have taken up the mantle.

There’s a movie called Forbidden Kingdom where Jet Li fights Jackie Chan and it’s spectacular.

Also a nidan in karate, stopped training after high school (started at the age of 7), I’ll throw out the name Gichin Funakoshi. He is recognized as the founder of Shotokan (based on shorin ryu and shorei ryu which he studied as a child) and is primarily responsible for modernizing karate in Japan and then bringing it to the US.
