YouTube Video Title:
Way of the Warrior - Kung Fu Hung Gar, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun
The last part features a crispy clear version of Dan Inosanto's take on JKD.
At 34:05 'It's just a combination that somebody had something to offer and he wanted to blend it into what worked for him'.
This, IMO, is exceedingly vague. It shows me that Guro Dan, whom I greatly respect, did not know what BL was doing. He was, in actuality, covering the various ranges of fighting, with Savate he was covering the combinations which they do very well, and with other arts he was covering the distancing and timing. Why, if you know what was going on, not cover this, why not say it specifically? I do not think Dan really understood at that time, what BL chose, very carefully, other arts and methods. You almost never hear anyone with the possible exception of Patrick Strong, (and even he is somewhat vague) give real, specific information. The truth is BL did not like giving out inner concepts or structure (that we know of), so he kept the specifics to himself. I think BL would have been a bit bothered by the more specific information that was given out by Gilbert Johnson in the Tao of JKD.
Still, by careful thought and study we can find it ourselves. I'm just saying that you should not stop with just watching videos of supposed adepts saying what was going on. It's not enough.
