In JKD, we begin not by accumulation but by discovering the cause of our ignorance, a discovery that involves a shedding process.
TKDTutor Comments: Again with the empty cup! Apparently, if you do agree with JKD, it is because of your ignorance and your previous knowledge and experience. It seems that to learn JKD, you must reject all you have learned and believe in Lee’s philosophy as the only way to the truth.
Unfortunately, most students in the martial arts are conformists. Instead of learning to depend on themselves for expression, they blindly follow their instructors, no longer feeling alone, and finding security in mass imitation.
TKDTutor Comments: Bull! Martial arts students come to a martial art class to learn a martial art from a supposed expert in the martial art. They must filter what is told them through what they already know to determine if what they being told is reasonable, logical, or true.
