Summary: Good JKD book
Comment: While I have not finished this book, yet, it seems to be
a good addition to the JKD arsenal. Some spellings are
different, but no big deal! Good job! Thanks
Summary: really good book on the art of JKD
Comment: This book was simply amazing to read and to follow along on the different techniques, exercises, and drills. I have a question: Is this book supposed to be in color photos or just black and white? I got mine in black and white so I just wanted to know. This book goes through the 5 ways of attack in JKD, wooden dummy, sticky hands, energy drills, kicking drills, 1 inch punch/kick, and much much more! I am glad that I purchased this book and it is one of the best books of JKD on the market.
Summary: Amazingly accurate but too much trapping !!
Comment: Don't get me wrong, this is by far the most complete,up to date, accurate and full of photographs JKD book in the market ! Everything, and I mean really everything of this art is covered with an astonishing amount of pictures. I have never seen a book so loaded with pictures, describing every angle and each and every movement in JKD.
So I will not repeat the positive qualities of this book, already very much described in other reviews.
On the negative side: complement this book with a more streetfighting oriented book. This book is also very much focused on trapping, tunneling, and related drills which have limited use in real world experience (unless you spend years daily training with them).
So, for the phisical preparation, and training, all of these drills are veru useful, but, I would use it only for training purposes.
Summary: Complete JKD Course
Comment: This DVD is a complete and comprehensive course in JKD presented in a structured way for effective learning and practice. If you can't get to or don't want to enroll in JKD school then buy this DVD. Just get a friend and practice or you can practice much of it on your own. The discussion and use of the By-Jon stance alone is worth the price.
Summary: best jkd instructor and book
Comment: this was the best book i ever have about JKD coz its not only a very good in text presentation but the instructor is very knowledgeable in tranferring JKD knowledge to an student. i am from the philippines and JKD training were very expensive here. This book help me on my own JKD training without the presence of JKD instructor. and I believe that i improve my JKD only by this book instructions. thank you sifu george hajnasr im wish you can travel here and do some seminars.
