The Most Popular Jeet Kune Do Book Ever Written
The Tao of Jeet Kune Do is the bestselling martial arts book of all time.   The book is a compilation of Bruce’s personal notes, drawings and philosophies on Jeet Kune Do.   The book has sold over 800,000 copies worldwide.   What most people don't know is that Bruce Lee did not publish the book.   It was actually published after his untimely death which may have added to the initial popularity of the book.

Needless to say, there was always some controversy about Bruce Lee's teaching methods, and the secrets he shared with the west.   But most of that controversy seemed to pass after Bruce Lee developed Jeet Kune Do.   Some people believe Bruce Lee had broken away from the funademental tenants of most martial arts systems when creating Jeet Kune Do.   In reality, he incorporated many elements from multiple martial arts and fighting systems.   Many Jeet Kune Do enthusiasts attribute the success of the book to Bruce Lee's ability to create a fighting system which was not limited by a style, but incorporated all styles.

Note the following quote from Bruce Lee about
Jeet Kune Do:

"Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there."

— Bruce Lee (Tao of Jeet Kune Do)
