During an evening training session with Jerry Poteet he informed me that I had learned the Jeet Kune Do curriculum and he had little else to show me aside from practicing sticky hands. He asked if I would be interested in learning stick fighting. This was something I was already exploring on my own so I was definitely interested.
A portion of the 2002 video contains most of what he taught me. The other information that I took notes on will be filmed and presented at another time. It’s more information that I haven’t seen presented so subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up to date.
The first video consists of the basic strikes and is VERY simple as it should be when applying JKD principles. I’m not getting into the “concepts” argument. That is a DEAD argument and MMA helped seal that coffin long ago.
Any sparring that I have done with sticks resorts to these simple strikes although I love my leg strikes while throwing in Savate stick techniques.
I don’t use the rear hand to check as I demonstrate in this video. Jerry taught to use the rear hand to hit instead (ex. throwing a cross to the face after hitting with the front hand stick). No passive moves.
