With relation to JKD, people need to stop regurgitating statements like, “None of us are Bruce Lee” -- “Only Bruce Lee could do that” -- “None of us have Bruce Lee’s speed”, etc. Very often the people making such statements are simply repeating what they themselves have been told by someone else. I have heard and read these kind of statements since Bruce Lee passed away, and it’s high time that they ceased. They are self-defeating and a waste of time and energy. They don’t accomplish anything. Even worse, they may stifle or kill the enthusiasm of individuals who may, as a result of continually hearing such things, never actualize their own potential. If a person is continually being told that what worked for the individual who developed Jeet Kune Do will not work for them because they are not blessed with the same physical attributes as that person, then why should they even bother to study the art at all?
