I have not invented a "new style," composite, modified or otherwise that is set within distinct form as apart
from "this" method or "that" method. On the contrary, I hope to free my followers from clinging to styles, patterns, or molds.
Remember that Jeet Kune Do is merely a name used, a mirror in which to see "ourselves". . . Jeet Kune Do is not an organized
institution that one can be a member of. Either you understand or you don't, and that is that.
There is no mystery about my style. My movements are simple, direct and non-classical. The extraordinary part
of it lies in its simplicity. Every movement in Jeet Kune-Do is being so of itself. There is nothing artificial about it.
I always believe that the easy way is the right way. Jeet Kune-Do is simply the direct expression of one's feelings with the
minimum of movements and energy. The closer to the true way of Kung Fu, the less wastage of expression there is.
Finally, a Jeet Kune Do man who says Jeet Kune Do is exclusively Jeet Kune Do is simply not with it. He is still
hung up on his self-closing resistance, in this case anchored down to reactionary pattern, and naturally is still bound by
another modified pattern and can move within its limits. He has not digested the simple fact that truth exists outside all
molds; pattern and awareness is never exclusive. Again let me remind you Jeet Kune Do is just a name used, a boat to get one
across, and once across it is to be discarded and not to be carried on one's back.”
