Merging Philosophy and Martial Arts

During his study in the US, Bruce Lee gained an empirical understanding of the Western world’s way of life and thinking. He enrolled in philosophy and psychology courses while studying at the University of Washington, which laid down a solid foundation on theories for his future martial arts philosophy, Jeet Kune Do. Jeet Kune Do combines Lee’s philosophical thinking and practical combat experience with his studies in kinesiology and physiology, placing emphasis on the liberation of the mind and natural combat techniques.
