Bruce Lee, the legend of martial arts and motion pictures, first studied Wing Chun Kung Fu in Hong Kong under the tutelage of Yip Man. When he came to the United States, Lee developed a concept of martial arts for the individual man that he labeled Jeet Kune Do - the way of the intercepting fist. His first book, The Tao of Jeet Kune Do, became a standard in the martial arts field. It was followed by Bruce Lee s Fighting Method a series of four volumes complied by Lee s friend and student M. Uyehara.
This DVD covers the first two volumes of Lee s fighting method Basic Training and Self-Defense Techniques. Topics include warm-ups, basic exercises, on-guard positions, footwork, power training, speed training and self-defense techniques. Demonstrating the techniques in this DVD presentation are Ted Wong and Richard Bustillo. Wong trained with Lee toward the later stages of Jeet Kune Do s development, becoming Lee s last major private student. He appeared with Lee in the photo techniques of the Bruce Lee s Fighting Method books and is considered to be Lee s protégé, being one of four to receive direct certification from Lee.
After Lee s death, Wong chose not to teach Jeet Kune Do publicly, instead establishing a semiprivate, nonprofit school in San Francisco in 1990. Bustillo is the director and co-founder of the International Martial Arts and Boxing Academy in Carson, California. He has more than 30 years of experience in the martial arts, is a senior instructor of Lee s Jeet Kune Do concepts and as a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame, is always in high demand on the international martial arts seminar circuit.
