Jeet Kune Do is was originally devised by the famous kung fu fighter and film star Bruce Lee; it is therefore a relatively
new martial art. Bruce Lee originally studied and practiced the art of Wing Chun
kung fu, and so there is a large Wing Chun influence on his art of Jeet Kune Do; however Lee was an omniverous student
of all styles of Kung Fu and drew on a huge wealth of understanding to accomplish his work. Lee sought to pull in the essence
and principles from the variety of other styles he studied, and tried wherever possible to base his system on principles rather
than specific forms or techniques. Jeet Kune Do is therefore an excellent art to provide a firm basis for people who like
to cross train in different styles.
