Paul Vunak's Blueprint & Roadmap to Contemporary Jeet Kune Do. The Anatomy of Asymmetrical Violence
This almost 500 page Manual will take all the guesswork out of your journey in Contemporary JKD, over 30 Chapters. My objective in this Manual is to introduce the "Rigid Rod of Reality. Violence can not be contained within a neat little package. It is not to be taken lightly and certainly not to be romanticized. This manual clarifies some issues previously clouded, sparks some questions that need to be asked and ultimately completes the puzzle! A must have for your Martial Arts collection
"If you want to understand the truth in martial arts, to see any fight clearly, you must throw away the notion of styles or schools, prejudices, likes and dislikes, and so forth. Then, your mind will cease all conflict and come to rest. In this silence, you will see totally and freshly." - Bruce Lee.
Let's first discuss and define the meaning behind Anatomy of a Streetlight. What is a streetlight? If we were to take a worldwide survey and ask, "Who is the best fighter on the planet?" it would quickly become obvious the difference in perception. The average American would probably pick his favorite heavyweight boxer, perhaps Mike Tyson (however, the question was not "who is the best boxer?"). The average Filipino would probably answer, “Floro Villabrille” (a legendary stick/blade master, but the question was not "who is the best weapons fighter?"). Ask the question in Brazil, and the answer might be "Rickson Gracie" or “Rigan Machado” (however, the question was not "who is the best ground fighter?"). So, I ask again, what exactly is a streetlight? It is any random act of violence, period! While this definition includes kicking, punching, stick- and knife- fighting, and ground fighting, it does not preclude two-on-one, three-on-one, four-on-two, pinching, biting, eye gouging, firearms, car jackings, and all-out riots.
I titled this book Anatomy of a Streetlight for a reason. It is not about tradition; it is not about styles or systems. It is not about sports, or tournaments, and certainly not about rules. My objective is to introduce the “rigid rod of reality.” Violence cannot be contained within a neat little package. It is not to be taken lightly and certainly not to be romanticized. This book clarifies some issues that have previously been clouded, sparks some questions that should be asked, and ultimately fills in a hole and completes the puzzle. 465 PAGES.
