Joe Lewis: On his personal expression of Jeet Kune Do: He was constantly changing his definition of Jeet Kune Do.I used to go up in front of the audience after I'd won a tournament, and Bruce Lee had written out this little speech about Jeet Kune Do, and I could never get it right. I didn't have a clue on how to make sense on to understand what he had written for me to say. Simply put, the only definition I remember clearly is one day I went to his house and Bruce Lee said Ah! You know what Jeet Kune Do means? It means the `thusness' of the techniques. How do you like that?Like I'm supposed to know what thusness means. I guess that's sort of a Zen quote.*
Seems to me Joe did not even know what was/was not "Zen."
Thus, that he did not really know what might/might not constitute a "Zen drill."
Let alone, what "thusness" refers to.
The "punch is merely a punch, a kick is merely a kick" allow the moment to dictate which is called for, when.
That sort of thing.
Which is what "non-intention" is.
Lol, as in that time between Bruce and Dan Lee, when Bruce came at Dan, but by that, Bruce's "attack" unwittingly "offered" Dan "an opportunity to intercept" Bruce - at which point, Dan's Western Boxing kicked in and he automatically smacked the heck out of Bruce...an echo to Bruce's sound.
That had to have been one hilarious moment!
But Dan's had been non-intention - the thusness of the techniques.
Not "Zen" though "Zen like."
Rather, jeet kune do...
