Martial Arts Poetry is Art in Motion:
"Attain Stillness in Motion, The Moon in the Stream" 



The way of the JKD                                    


The  solution to complexity is always Simple ,

The path in tortuosity is always Direct ,

The  rules of battle are dictated by Effectivity ,

The actions   in life,  by  being Fluid,

The right   thoughts  always result from  Open mindedness.


Knowing your ignorance is the best part of knowledge ,

The way towards this you may call Jeet Kune Do,

Where there is one thought , one action

And No mind ,

There the mind will react spontaneously and flow in  freedom .


Like  the reflection in a mirror

Like an  echo to  a sound

Action will be free, unconscious and unhindered

Like water assuming the shape of  its bowl.


JKD is the emptyness in a vaccum,

JKD is the overflow in an ocean,

JKD is the movement in stillness

And stillness in motion

The moon in the stream.


JKD is that Nothing

which differentiates a winner from a loser,

JKD is that effortless effort,

Which reaps success ,even in adversity.


JKD is the music to the noise of the mind,

JKD is the flow in the dance of life.



You May Learn to Fight

You may overpower with Size ,

Or You may learn to fight.


You may dominate with Status ,

Or You may learn to fight.


You may conquer with the Bucks,

Or You may learn to fight.


You may dictate with your Tongue ,

Or You may learn to fight.


You may outdo by Intellect,

Or You may learn to fight.


You may rule by Hierarchy,

Or You may learn to fight.


And if you learn to Fight ,

You will need nothing ,

Spirit , Heart & Fire,

Will make up for all you lack.


And once you know how to Fight ,

You will beat them all .

In their own game,

You will bring them shame.


You will be known by your own name,

And not by what you lack.


Fighting will give you everything ,

That you desire, & will ever desire,

Fighting makes men out of boys ,

And Fighters out of men.



The  Warrior that I am


I am prepared to lose on the world,

For standing by what I believe,

Losing all to follow a small principle,

The Warrior that I am.


I have nothing to boast of,

Material possessions nor Worldly success,

But my skills shine over all the glory,

The Warrior that I am.


I think different,

See a fight in everything,

My heart burns with the desire,

Desire to win, conquer and seize my victory,

The  Warrior that I am.


I believe in the impossible,

I believe in a way out,

I am used to seeing light in the darkness,

Where all hope ends, my battle begins there,

The  Warrior that I am.


Where people give up,

Reach their breaking point,

I am used to starting from there,

The  Warrior that I am.


The world may not understand my ways,

My attitude and my Bushido,

But the World will stand up to applaud,

My victory over the seemingly impossible,

The  Warrior that I am.


Yes, I am made like this,

Made to survive and made to win,

Made to fight and made for war,

And I like the way I’ve shaped,

The way I’ve lived, the way I’ve thought,

The battles won and the glories lost,

I am proud to be blessed this way,

The  Warrior that I am.


The Fighters Prayer

Let   my  will  be  as  strong   as  an  invincible mountain

Let   my  skill  be  unmatched  and  remarkable .


Let   my  heart  forever yearn for  victory,

Let  my  Art  aid  the   heart in its quest .


Let   my   mind  break  all  bounds,

Till  the  bells  of  victory  sound.


Let  my   heart  have  no  place for cowardice,

Let me forever go forward,

For  its  better to  die a  fighter ,

Than   live  a  coward  .


Let  my  spirit  make  my  opponent  step back,

Cause  he  knows  not  how  long  I walked this path.


You can only win

With that burning heart

And no-mind within.






It is easy to acquire skills,

It is difficult to follow ones own attitude


Each is made differently,

With peculiar skills & flaws,

With a characteristic structure of thought,

Which is basic to his nature.


Each must rid the self of flaws,

Must acquire essential skills.

But One must walk his own way,

And follow his basic nature.


There is peace in being,

HOW you were supposed to be,

But You may change your destiny

And change WHAT  you were to be.


Maximum effectively will result,

Using ones inherent attitudes.

Thus a Prince may turn into a Monk,

And a Monk into a Warrior.


Acquisition of skills is necessary,

It adds to the speed of victory.

But to reach there,

You need your own way & your own attitude.

Bottom Note:


The Philosophy of Jeet Kune Do Ideology, Mumbai



 The Jeet Kune Do Ideology Mumbai is inspired by fighting principles of the legendary Lee & Sun Tzus art of War.


This Jeet Kune Do ideology will help the Mumbai based martial Arts seeker and practitioner to find his destination. The destination can vary from physical prowess in the ring to combat & martial art skills to mental balance and eventually to spiritual development.


Jeet Kune Do is a journey and represents each mans search for truth both in the Martial arts and in life.  Lee has said that  via Jeet Kune Do Life opens its avenues to us.


Lee  founded Jeet Kune Do, but wished he did not have a name for it. Lee  fans and martial arts enthusiasts all over the world have elevated the word Jeet Kune Do to its present spectacular status.


The martial arts seekers and Lee fans in Mumbai can avail of these benefits from the Jeet Kune Do Ideology.


Those outside Mumbai, in and around India can also approach us for guidance in their Jeet Kune Do journey. If you are prepared to travel to Mumbai, we will help you with your martial arts evolution. 

Knowing is not enough, We must apply.
Willing is not enough, We must do.
