yeah, common sense is really good for fighting, but there is also a lot you really can't just figure out on your own without an experienced fighters help. I train under Bob Smith, who was an undefeated kickboxing champion for 10 years, and there is no way in hell I would be where I am at with my skills without his insight.

actually i'll retract that. i do believe schools are helpful and pass down knowledge, but i already have an idea of what martial arts are and will explore my own kind of martial art i guess.




that works for many people. as long as you can apply common sense to your methods and practice techniques then you can become just as effective as anyone. and it certainly helps if you have someone to spar with to actually apply the knowledge

just like bodybuilding, you don't need a personal trainer, or to be a kinesiologist to become very large and strong. you just need common sense

no, that just means you aren't thinking hard enough. in the end someone thought of that move, and i can just as well think of it too. though manuals help. but thinking about hypothetical situations is how i do it.

cool, thanks for the suggestion. i've read "the artist of life", which is a compilation of some of his works i believe.

does the book you mentioned include theory? for example illustrations and such.

Indeed I second that.. Tao of Jeet Kune Do is a must read.
Not only for any martial artist but it applies to life as well.
Yes it includes much theory, example illustrations and a lot of philosophies.
The basic premise of Jeet Kune Do being, formlessness.. borrowing from any and every style, using only the most effective movements.
