Summary: High quality book by an Exceptional Sifu!
Comment: I have seen a number of books on Jeet Kune Do, but few that put it in terms so easily understood. I came to the study of Jeet Kune Do with a background of familiarity w/ Wing Chun. Many other books on Jun Fan seem to bear only slightly on the Wing Chun connection. This is understandable as Bruce Lee parted ways with much of that art, but it is at the root of his system, and Sifu Seaman does a wonderful job of showing Jun Fan's connection to Wing Chun principles. I would also say that, having spoken to him on the phone, his spirit of Hing-Dai (Kung Fu brotherhood) is most refreshing in a world of inflated egos. If you seek to understand the path of Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, you really only need this book!
Summary: Great textbook on Jun Fan Gung Fu
Comment: I take Jun Fan Gung Fu with an Inosanto teacher, and this book is the perfect textbook for what we do in class. The author does an excellent job of discussing principles, but also techniques. The pictures are clear, and the text only really contains things you need, without extra extrapolations on stuff you don't need to learn. This is an excellent textbook on JKD/Jun Fan.
Summary: The best in traditional Jun Fan material
Comment: Personally, this is one of my favorite books on the subject of Jeet Kune Do. It is different in that it presents the more traditional Jun Fan Gung Fu as opposed to the method of Jeet Kune Do. Not many books do this, as they go right into "what's new" in Jeet Kune Do. Although there is nothing wrong with that, Mr. Seaman shows the reader the value of the original Jun Fan material. He covers basic trapping, Jun Fan kickboxing kicks, boxing, stance movement, etc. Overall, this is a treasured book in my martial arts library, as it is rare in that it shows techniques and ideas that other books gloss over. Just my opinion.
Summary: Great Supplementary Literature on JKD
Comment: I have read most of the Bruce Lee library, small to big. My never-ending search for more knowledge brings me to other authors such as Sifu Seaman who was instructed by Sifu Dan Inosanto (no introduction needed there). Not having any limits is what Sifu Bruce Lee always insisted. Also having now way as "way". Never stop learning. Never stop practicing. That's what I live by. This book is a great addition to any JKD practitioner. Improving the fundamentals of JKD is the core. You move to your own path from there.

Summary: Excellent addition to any serious martial artist's library
Comment: This book is an excellent overview of the basics of Jun Fan Gung Fu, the Gung Fu system developed by the late Bruce Lee, using the concepts and principles of Jeet Kune Do. It is very well organized and well written and everything is very clearly explained and illustrated.
One thing in particular that I really like about this book is that the first two chapters cover Jun Fan's footwork (as in stance, mobility, etc., not kicking), the foundation upon which everything else is built, which makes it an excellent companion to Chris Kent and Tim Tackett's books "Jeet Kune Do Kickboxing" and "Jun Fan / Jeet Kune Do: The Textbook" which are also very good, but do not cover stance or footwork very well.
Excellent study guide for any Jun Fan / JKD student.
