" Art is the expression of the self.
The more complicated and restricted the method, the less the opportunity for expression of one's original sense of freedom.
Though they play an important role in the early stage, the techniques should not be too mechanical, complex or restrictive.
If we cling blindly to them, we shall eventually become bound by their limitations.
Remember, you are expressing the techniques and not doing the techniques.
It is as though when I call you, you answer me, or when I throw you something, you catch it.
It's as simple as that — no fuss, no mess. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond, be like an echo. " ... Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee was a Chinese American martial artist and actor, widely regarded as the most influential martial artist of the 20th century.
His movies elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts films to a new level. They also sparked the first major surge of interest
in Chinese martial arts in the West. Bruce Lee became an iconic figure particularly to Chinese.
Many see Bruce Lee as a model blueprint for acquiring a strong and efficient body as well as developing a mastery of martial arts
and hand to hand combat skills. He began the process of creating his own fighting system known as Jeet Kune Do.
His evaluation of traditional martial arts doctrines is nowadays seen as the first step into the modern style of mixed martial arts.
