The controversy over the importance of trapping skill continues! Sorry, but JKD without the trapping elements isn't JKD at all! It might be kickboxing with the power side forward, but that's about it! One of Bruce Lee's Five Ways of ATTACK is HIA, or Hand Immobilization Attack! The Five Ways of Attack are an integral part of the Jeet Kune Do structure! Whether you use trapping or not, USING IT and KNOWING IT are two completely diferent things!
The point I am making is that in order for it to be JKD, the trapping has to be there! You may get into five altercations in a row and never have to USE trapping! However, if it were to be needed, do you KNOW trapping? Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it! For anyone to know of Bruce Lee's Five Ways of Attack and still say that trapping is not a part of JKD is just a show of blatant ignorance! That is the simple truth!
