Response to Re: Oakland JKD is a mystery
I never said there were advanced JKD concepts only BL 'could' understand, I said there were concepts only BL understood. Mostly because they were concepts developed by BL, and JKD was BL's own personal approach to fighting. This ties directly into your concern with BL not divulging certain techniques or knowledge.
Dan Inosanto may know about these, or maybe not. It might be that Bruce took some knowledge to the grave with him. This knowledge may be less about secret techniques or moves, and more about body mechanics and the application of force. For example, just before he died, Bruce was working on jabbing his fingers through solid wood (there were pieces of wood discovered at his home with finger tip indentations in them). Now, exactly how he trained to be able to do this, what kind of finger position, from what distance, how much force, whether it was only for demonstrations or had practical street value, etc. is something only BL would know, at least at that time in history.
