Bruce Lee was an Artist of Life. As a martial artist, actor and teacher, Bruce Lee was always learning and growing. Essential to his success was journal writing: Philosophy, fight choreography, notes from the books he read, poems, film ideas, character sketches and more.
We've paired this classic Moleskine Journal with Bruce Lee's Core Symbol because his core symbol represented to him, the ultimate stage of cultivation - Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation. It also speaks to the basic tenets of Jeet Kune Do: Simplicity. Directness. Freedom.
We hope the journal inspires you to get started on a new passion or further a passion you have already begun to pursue. As Bruce said, "Learning is a constant discovery - a process without end."
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
