Maybe a friend told you about it. Maybe you saw it on a billboard. Maybe one night you were googling about martial arts and it popped up. Any way you found it, you still found it. That is a wonderful introduction into this art form. Anyone and everyone can get involved. Even if you are on your couch right now or at your desk at work, this is for you. Bruce Lee created this practical culmination of different techniques and styles to better prepare you for anything the world throws your way. But how does one get involved?
Everyone has to start somewhere, and this may be a little different spin than you are used to. Do research first. Some styles of fitness and fighting will urge you to quickly sign up without thinking, or doing your due diligence. None of that applies here, because the more you know, the better you will stay committed. There is so much to all of this that it cannot be contained by a few words. I encourage you to keep reading here, as well as purchasing the book: “Tao of Jeet Kune Do” by Bruce Lee. Hearing these affirmations from Lee’s mouth would do wonders for bettering your knowledge.
How do you know if this is a lifestyle choice you want to make? Watch videos on YouTube next. Watch the beautiful art form being lived out, and you can see how it has changed the lives of so many. The next step is the biggest one yet. Search up “Jeet Kune Do” studios, groups, and/or instructors in your area. Getting connected with them directly will lead to a healthy community of supporters that will keep you on track. Now, once you’ve started reading, watched it with your own eyes, and have found a group to connect with, then what do you do? You take a leap into the unknown with a few simple acts of simplicity. In fact, Lee said it best himself, “Simplicity is the shortest distance between two points.”
