Jeet Kune Do is the art of expressing the human body in combative form. It is not a “style” or “system” of martial art as conventionally defined. Nor is it simply an eclectic conglomeration of fighting techniques from various arts combined with philosophical dogma that is convenient. Jeet Kune Do is a rational, well thought-out approach to “total” martial art training.
The Encylopedia of Jeet Kune Do is designed to serve as a resource guide, not only for the person training in Jeet Kune Do, but for any martial artist sincerely interested in enhancing his or her performance and achieving one’s full potential.
Many of the principles and training methods illustrated in one section or chapter of this book can and should be cross-referenced with motions or actions in another. The goal is for you, the reader, to use this book to improve your understanding and working knowledge of the art, science, and philosophy of unarmed combat known as Jeet Kune Do. Remember, it’s not how much you absorb, but how much of what you’ve absorbed that you can apply “alively” that counts.

Chris Kent, in 1973 at age 17, became the youngest and final member admitted into Dan Inosanto’s fabled “Backyard JKD” group. He studied with and assisted Inosanto for more than 13 years, mastering his skills and traveling extensively, both nationally and internationally, while serving as Dan’s personal assistant for seminars and public exhibitions. In 1982, he was one of the first students to be awarded the prestigious title of Full Instructor in Jeet Kune Do.
For more than 35 years, Chris Kent has been intimately involved in Jeet Kune Do and is recognized as one of the few people who has total comprehension of the art and philosophy, including what is referred to as the “style-less style.” As one of the preeminent torchbearers of the art around the world, he remains at the forefront of perpetuating Jeet Kune Do’s art and philosophy, and is considered by many to be one of the most knowledgeable instructors in the world.
