"Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do -- The TEXTBOOK" shows the overall picture of Jeet Kune Do as a method of self-discovery. Many books have been written about the techniques of martial arts. They deal with the basic tools of combat, such as punching, kicking and blocking. This "how to" approach is not enough to create a successful fighter. One may know how to punch and have adequate power, but without the proper timing the punch will never score. One may know how to kick, but without a feeling for the proper distance the kick will never land. One may be able to punch and kick, but without proper visual awarenss they might not see the opening when it occurs.The purpose of "Jeet Kune Do -- THE TEXTBOOK" is to explore those qualities and combative motions that make the tools work. It is qualities such as balance, precision, speed, awareness, distance and attitude that make the tools found in JKD work so well. The "how to" will always be important, but to be successful also takes the discovering of "why" and "when."Authors Chris Kent and Tim Tackett, world-renown for their decades of teaching Jeet Kune Do, lead you on a journey that will expose to the reader the various aspects of "the way of the intercepting fist" and allow them to see the overall picture.

I purchased this book on the recommendation of my JKD instructor. It has been an excellent supplement to my lessons. I don't feel that one can "learn" martial arts from a book alone. However, this book gives many techniques and drills that can be learned and adapted if one has some experience in JKD, boxing, Wing Chun, or Filipino martial arts.
There are several sections, including basic stances or postures and striking techniques, drills, psychological and physical attributes, footwork, and other sections. I found particularly useful the section on attributes, which gives advice and drills to develop attributes such as timing, speed, quickness, perception, etc. These are skills which are not talked about as much in other martial arts books, which might focus more on developing techniques such as punches, kicks, blocking, joint-locking, etc.
This is not a book just to be read from cover-to-cover. You need to practice the techniques and drills to improve. There are many pictures of the drills, which are useful.
If you are cross-training in different arts or want ideas for different workouts, check out this book. If you train in Jun Fun or JKD, this is a must-have.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone studying JKD. I am mid-level as a JKD student (fourth level), and we do a lot of the techniques shown in the book at the school I go to. Chris Kent and Tackett are simply the best at JKD. I have heard a lot of total B.S. recently in the martial arts world, that Bruce Lee "gave up on wing chun". Anyone who knows anything about what Bruce really taught and did knows that wing chun was the core of the art (like the brances of a tree grow from the trunk, JKD techniques grow from the core, which is wing chun). That is one reason I really liked this book.

My teacher studied a bit under Chris Kent, and he told us stories of how good Kent was (really, really good !). Kent is evidently really fast and his wing chun is evidently really good. My instructor said that Kent's wing chun was perfect, really, and you could not touch him because he would just redirect your energy so well.
A complete JEET KUNE DO book. A must have for JKD lovers
This is a great book on Jeet Kune Do, I think. It goes through basic tools, and a myriad of combinations and drills. This is very helpful to supplement Bruce Lee's books, which were more based on principles than techniques and combinations. I recommend it!
Great book in great condition.
Chris Kent and Tim Tackett do an excellent job of presenting the basics of Jun Fan Gung Fu and Jeet Kune Do concepts as well as a variety of useful drills. I highly recommend this book to any JF/JKD student. My only complaint is that there wasn't much about stance or footwork, which are the basis for everything else. In their book Jeet Kune Do Kickboxing they cover bai jong, the basic stance, for about a page and a half, but you could probably write an entire volume on the stance and footwork alone. If you're studying under a qualified Jun Fan / JKD instructor you'll know all of this, but it would still be nice to have a reference on it, and I'm sure that Sifus Kent and Tackett could probably offer quite a bit of insight into what is, IMO, an incredibly important, if basic subject.
If you're going to be involved in stand-up martial arts or fighting, get this book. It's all you need. The training methods in here are very, very good. This book covers on-guard position, tools(puches, kicks, etc.), energy drills, distance, timing, the five ways of attack, parries, target training, partner training... It's probably best for someone who has been exposed to stand-up fighting before, and has a basic knowledge of punches and kicks. It becomes a masterpiece when taken with "Jun Fan/ Jeet Kune Do Kickboxing" (which it often referes to), the "Bruce Lee Fighting Method Series", and the "Tao of Jeet Kune Do". Once again, it's probably not for begginers, and many drills require a partner, but that's just the nature of the beast. Good for sport/full contact, and pretty decent for self-defense.
This book is a great intro to classic JKD and Strategy. The chapter on attribute refinement(like awarenes and mobility) is especially good. The drills are great for someone who has a little martial arts expirience and the techniques are easily understood through the great writing and photos.
