The Tao of Jeet Kune Do by Bruce Lee

tao of jeet kune doThis is the best-selling martial arts book in the world, written by the best-known martial artist in the world. Whether you are a fan of Bruce Lee or simply looking to expand your knowledge of martial arts, The Tao of Jeet Kune Do is a fundamental text to read and enjoy.

The book was never written as a complete text. In fact, it was published after Lee's death, compiled from notes he'd made while recovering in hospital after a serious back injury. Nevertheless, it offers a fascinating insight into Lee's views of martial arts training, strategy and mindset.

Lee was far more than a movie icon. He was an outstanding martial artist by any standards. Highly trained in classical Wing Chun, he later developed his own 'mixed martial art' by incorporating techniques from Judo, Jujitsu and Boxing. His system, Jeet Kune Do or 'Way of the Intercepting Fist' is now a major world style in its own right.

The Tao of Jeet Kune Do has given rise to countless spin-offs, but this is the original text to which all others refer, and for this reason alone deserves a place in your martial arts library.
