Descendents of the Dragon

Bruce Lee's art of Jeet Kune Do has ridden the waves of controversy since his death in 1973. From the backyard of Dan Inosanto to the magazine pages of Black Belt and Inside Kung Fu, Jeet Kune Do has become many things to different people. From its early days of being known as Jun Fan Gung Fu to its later incarnation as 'Jeet Kune Do' and then 'JKD Concepts', 'JKD Strategies', 'Combative JKD' and 'Original JKD' (to mention a few) the art has continued to thrive under several different original Lee students. As time marches on and these "pointers to the truth" eventually retire or unfortunately pass on, the world of JKD is left with their students, who have become known as "Second Generation Instructors of Jeet Kune Do." Many of these second generation instructors have had the privilege of training with several of Lee's students rather then merely obtaining one perspective on Lee's art while a select few have chosen the path of solidarity and remain under the guidance of only one instructor of JKD. This book, Descendents of the Dragon, seeks to explore and promote the future generation of Jeet Kune Do instructors and also include instructors from the various off springs of Jeet Kune Do such as Jesse Glover's Non-Classical Gung Fu, Joe Cowles' Wu-Wei Gung Fu and James DeMile's, Wing Chun Do. As a historian of Bruce Lee's art and the life of Bruce Lee, I have chosen practitioners to interview that I feel best represent the aforementioned arts and the current state of Jeet Kune Do.

Summary: Decendants of the Dragon
Comment: Paul Bax has hit on a sure fire method for pleasing the greatest audience. Just about every currently active OBLS is represented in Paul's newest contribution to the JKD literature. You can learn first hand how each version of JKD was formulated as you read the testimony from actual students who have risen to the top of their respective classes. After reading the book I can only say that JKD is in good hands.
