About the Jeet Kune Do Kali Association
Who are we? We think that the late Ted Lucaylucay stated it best during his last interview.
"As far as the philosophy, Temujin [Gengis Khan] was the man who brought all the Mongolian tribes together. I remember talking about all the controversy earlier with all the different JKD [and FMA] factions now. They are all apart and yet they all come from the same family. Like the Mongolian tribes who were scattered living apart for so long and surviving, by stealing and robbing. Temujin came along and brings them all together and makes them into one great conquering nation. He was one of the great conquerors and developers. That’s what we are trying to do since there are bad vibes, politics and controversy going on. We like to use the concept of Temujin to bring all the JKD [and FMA] people together (those who want to come together; and learn how to live, change, share, and grow, with more togetherness and harmony). If primitive Mongolian tribes can do something like that, here we are suppose to be more civilized, educated people or nation, it would seem a little more easier for us. Our direction right now is to bring the people who want to get along together, not to create controversy among each other, and not getting involved in the nasty politics. These are the ones that are most prone to doing and enjoying what we want to do and pushing towards the same goal. And that is to get along."
It's in the same spirit that the Jeet Kune Do Kali Association is founded and operated. We strongly believe that it couldn't be explained any better than that.
