Sorry, and no disrespect to the late Ted Wong, but this is simply NOT TRUE! Hayward Nishioka, the famous judo champion, was close friends with Bruce Lee. Back when Bruce Lee was still alive, Hayward conducted a scientific test to determine which punch had the most power, the JKD vertical fist or the horizontal fist punch. The JKD vertical fist punch was easily the most powerful! This tells us that the vertical fist is the fastest AND the most powerful! Diagonal fist is "OK", and I do know some JKD practitioners that use it, but I still prefer the vertical fist!
