“Todays karate practitioners are equally comfortable in the kickboxing ring or on the grappler’s mat. ‘Borrow from all styles and use what works’ has become the ideal of American karate practitioners. Karate can be any expression of a martial art, limited only by the attributes of the practitioner.”
–Jerry Beasley, Ed.D.

Jeet Kune Do: High-Risk Sparring
Author Jerry Beasley maintains that the best jeet kune do experience comes through the art of full-contact fighting. The true JKD experience must have the element of danger, the potential for injury and the reality of pain for the practitioner to develop true freedom of expression.
In this book, Jerry Beasley contends that the freedom must be earned at some sacrifice. This book will stir some opposition from those who prefer the status quo. But there’s no denying that the true face of JKD shines through.
