Boran you are a very knowledgeable poster but in this thread you are showing your complete ignorance of the topic at hand. JKD encouraged full contact sparring scenarios. Don't confuse what you see as "JKD practitioners" for the art as espoused by Bruce Lee which was the truth. These guys like Carruthers are espousing their interpretation of the art - but unlike Muay thai which is a collection of techniques - JKD is a method of expression and an understanding of concepts.

Read The Tao of Jeet Kune Do and THe Bruce Lee Story and then when you're informed about Bruce Lee and Jeet Kune Do feel free to respond.
