    Question Bruce Lee and Ed Parker

    Hello everyone,

    From what I've heard Bruce Lee was trained by Ed Parker in Kenpo. I am wondering what tricks of the Kenpo trade Bruce took with him to create the masterkeys for Jeet Kune Do. Any thoughts friends?

    Bruce wasnt really trained by Mr Parker. Mr Parker took in this kid and had him live with him for about 3 months. They exchanged alot of ideas. Both were on the same path. (Lee was already an excellent martial artist)Bruce was more of an attribute trainer, where Mr Parker, not so much liked his meat and potatos too much. Mr Parker helped launch Bruce's career. Bruce trained with Mr Parker but wasnt so much trained by him. Bruce did have a good kenpo infleunce beside Mr Parker. One of Parkers black belts at the time took off with Bruce and trained with him til his death(Lee's) That's Dan Inosanto. I believe Dan was more of a kenpo influence than Mr Parker.

    Bruce would say (about Parker Kenpo)

    Why learn a thousand different ways to cross the street.
    I just look both ways, and cross when its safe.

    So Bruce really just trained the heck outta his basics. He was really into attributes.
    Honestly they were both Alpha males and butted heads alot.
    But really respected each other. LOL

    There is alot kenpo in JKD, and visa versa.
    Both men studied the same Martial arts and drew influence.

    With Bruce, he really like Muay Thai, Boxing and Savate. Based alot of the art around these.

    JKD is usually taught in 3 phases.
    Wing Chun
    Jun Fan Kickboxing(Bruce Lee's kickboxing/savate/muay thai)
    chin na

    Then you get the glow. SHO NUFF!

    From what I understand they went over "strongest and weakest base of support' concepts.

    Two people that are here on KT whose brain's you'll want to pick on this subject:
    #1: Doc Chapel: he was with Mr. Parker when Mr. Parker and Mr. Lee crossed paths.
    #2: Sean Kelley: He's a "BRUCE LEE" officianado....and a high ranking Parker Black Belt. I'd be SHOCKED if there's something about Bruce Lee that Mr. Kelley doesn't know.

    You are correct but don't forget Tom Bleecker who also recently created a login here. If you know him you know what I mean.

    When I first met Doc Chapel, it didn't take more than 30 minutes for the questions (and stories) about Bruce Lee to start to flow We got that out of the way and got back to "how can I get better?"

    I believe Mr. Tom Kelly knew Bruce Lees history with Ed Parker as well as Frank Trejo

    I suggest you ignore what you heard and do some research.
    Many on this forum know what the "story" was.

    Ps. I've heard that Ueshiba could teleport himself. What do you think?

    I wanna learn how to teleport!

    On a serious note... Can you share anything that you may know about Mr. Parker's and Mr. Lee's relationship?
