I'm pretty astounded that despite all the information that Bruce Lee wrote in his notes and inside the books he owned in his vast library that First Generation students fail (or for some reason reluctant) to teach or hold back on some of the knowledge that was presented to them which is why I feel extremely lucky that Jerry Poteet gave me information he didn't give to anyone else (as far as I know.)
I trained with a few of them and will relay my stories on a later blog.
I know I'll hear the JKD simplicity argument with this post but even boxers go outside their realm of comfort to explore new tools instead of drilling the same attributes day in and day out.
Today's MMA competitors are prime examples of the need for new discoveries to unbalance an opponent. It will always boil down to the unpredictability of a fight as well as the reactions of the human body so just enjoy your training and lay off the online arguments.
The following video is another portion of my 2002 video training diary. Jerry taught me this as Bruce showed and explained. Did I actively practice this kick? No but it's knowledge that was passed along and there is no need for it to be kept secret.
This information came out of another brainstorming session for his video series that never happened as planned. This was to be the definitive collection of his knowledge and it's a shame it never happened. I asked about advanced kicks that we could include in one of the videos and he told me about the Drop Sweep Kick which I documented on video.
It's a quick demo with my sound effects and all as usual.
Next up will be the JKD stick fighting information that Jerry showed me.
Enjoy the information and please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to my channel. If you dislike the video at least give an explanation in the comments section because it’s the only way I can provide better content with the new videos I plan on doing. I’m not going to get butt hurt. I’m putting this information out there to the general public so I expect criticism.
