Bruce Lee developed an expression of martial arts that was personal to him called Jeet Kune Do (translated: Way of the Intercepting Fist). The art has as its symbolic representation what we call The Core Symbol and uses as its main tenet: Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation.
The idea of intercepting is key to JKD, whether it be the interception of your opponent’s technique or his intent. The basic guiding principles are: simplicity, directness and freedom (the form of no form).
The techniques and philosophies of JKD can be applied to real combat as well as challenging life situations. Jeet Kune Do celebrates the cultivation and honest self expression of the individual over any organized style.
“Research your own experience. Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless. Add what is essentially your own. “ – Bruce Lee
Converse sizing is unique and sneaker specific. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers are expected to run a half-size large*. Wear the type of socks you'll wear with your sneakers and measure feet in the afternoon (feet typically swell during the day). Distribute weight evenly before measuring.
Created in 1917, the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star has been evolving for a hundred years while managing to keep it classic: a canvas upper, all-star emblem, and vulcanized rubber sole are known all over the world. The silhouette stays true in both high-top and oxford styles: both looks can handle whatever.
