A flaw in the take-down and mount

The flaw in a successful take-down like this one is that the person can hold you down and bite you and use pressure-points or allow a friend to attack while your down.

JKD Reality Training

In reality you have no idea who your going to come up against so when practicing fighting spar with anyone no matter their size, style, strengths or skill level.

Ready To Train

You know what helps me get in the mood to practice fighting watching it on video clips, watching the best videos, i can find with action and realistic fighting.  Make sure you take some time to study the fighting videos and absorb what you think works from them.

Kicking Them When Their Down

There's nothing wrong with finishing an attacker off when he or she is down and you know if you don't then they can get up and fight you again.  It's best to not assume that the attacker is seriously done and walk away without thinking they may have a deadly weapon.  All you have to do is stomp-kick or soccer-kick the head once or twice without over doing it then run while watching your back to safety and call the cops.

The JKD Way Of Using The "Wing Chun" Dummy

The JKD way of using this is to find out all or most of what you can do with this to build up your striking and trapping skills without traditional ways.  You need to imagine it as an attacker and trap and strike it from any possible positions.  Practice attacking it from a squatting, sitting, or standing position from the left, right or front of the dummy.

Practice intercepting with footwork, trapping, striking, and combination or single attacks that flow together or you can exit somewhere then attack it.  You can even practice trapping a training partner then turning around to counter attack the dummy as if it were trying to strike you.  Remember to absorb what you think is useful from any style and not just use anything from it.

In reality theirs no jumping or spinning in fighting and if your going to use knees use them at close range the groin, thighs, and stomach are the target.  The only other time that's good to use it is when somebody tries a double-leg-take-down.

Practice any striking techniques with trapping or parries.  The strike should come at the same time as the trap or parry instead of after.  A perfect example of this type of attack is in the picture.

The JKD Way Of Using The Grappling Dummy

The "Jeet Kune Do" way is to find as many different possible ways of using it and of course grappling is one of them.  The second thing is trapping which is very useful since the dummy has arms that stick out and all you have to do is stand it up.  Parrying combined with striking techniques are also very useful...the dummy is thick so, i'm sure it can take a lot of punishment like a punching-bag. 

Mind and Skills 8

Imi Lichtenfeld is the second true fighter who was also a founder like "Bruce Lee" to create a realistic way of fighting that deals with everything which to me makes them both geniuses.  "Krav Maga" and "Jeet Kune Do" are similar to each other they both follow by the truth in fighting meaning their are no rules allowing a human being freedom to do whatever it takes when dealing with attackers.  There is no need to create anymore styles theirs enough nonsense in the ones we have now.

Nobody should attempt mixed martial arts or any grappling attacks in the streets it's too dangerous most people will not follow by rules and it is best to try an stay on your feet to defend yourself.  It is best to let the attacker come at you with the grappling offense and you use any means necessary to stop him.  Practicing traditional grappling is not completely useless you will build up your strength and skills and have a understanding on how to deal with someone with traditional skills.

A wing chun dummy being used the traditional way is good but the JKD way is much more realistic.  When using this peace of equipment you want to treat it like it's a human and counter-attack it's limbs as if it were attacking you.  There are multiple techniques you can apply to your trapping skills which are any techniques that flow together from your hands to your feet just as long as their moves that can be use on the dummy.
