Richard Bustillo began studying JKD under Bruce Lee in Los Angeles' Chinatown area at age 24. Because his time with the late master continuously drove home the limits of following a single established style, Richard Bustillo always strove to expand his horizons.

“From Bruce's beliefs regarding established styles, I learned to train with an open mind," Richard Bustillo says.

Ted Wong: The Master's Protégé

Also featured in Bruce Lee's Fighting Method: Basic Training and Self-Defense Techniques is the late Ted Wong.

Considered to be Bruce Lee's last major private student and protégé, Ted Wong trained with the master toward the later stages of jeet kune do's development. Ted Wong appeared with Bruce Lee in the jeet kune do techniques photos for the Bruce Lee's Fighting Method books (both the original individual volumes and Bruce Lee's Fighting Method: The Complete Edition.)

Ted Wong is one of only four students to receive direct certification from Bruce Lee. After Bruce Lee's death, Ted Wong chose not to teach jeet kune do publicly; instead, he established a semiprivate, nonprofit school in San Francisco in 1990. Sadly, he passed away on November 24, 2010.

Bruce Lee: The Master

Considered by many fans to be a martial arts and motion pictures legend, Bruce Lee first studied wing chun kung fu in Hong Kong under the tutelage of Yip Man. Upon arriving in the United States, Bruce Lee developed what he labeled jeet kune do: a concept of martial arts for the individual man, literally translated as "the way of the intercepting fist."

His first book, Tao of Jeet Kune Do, became a standard in the martial arts field. It was followed by Bruce Lee's Fighting Method, a series of four volumes compiled by Bruce Lee's friend and student M. Uyehara — and later the hard-bound deluxe book Bruce Lee's Fighting Method: The Complete Edition.

The jeet kune do techniques DVD from which the above preview is taken covers the first two individual books (Volume 1 and Volume 2) of Bruce Lee's Fighting Method.

Topics on the Bruce Lee's Fighting Method: Basic Training and Self-Defense Techniques DVD include warm-ups, basic exercises, on-guard positions, footwork, power training, speed development and self-defense techniques.

Talks About Being a Smaller Fighter in a Combat Sport Ruled by Giants

At first glance, most people — most martial artists, even — will zero in on the smaller person in any fight and deem him or her to be at a distinct disadvantage. It's a natural tendency to draw this conclusion based on obvious attributes such as height, weight and reach. However, that tendency does not always lead to accurate conclusions.
