Hi, When I was looking at taking up Martial Arts again recently, JKD was one of those that I would really like to have tried. However here in Ireland it seems JKD schools are few and generally located in some rather inconvenient locations. In contrast there are TKD, Kenpo and Judo classes available within a 5 minute walk from my house! I guess the availability of Kenpo all across Dublin was what really got me wondering.. How is that the Martial Art founded by Bruce Lee seems to lack the popularity of some other martial arts? I don't know how many people had heard of Aikido before Steven Seagal appeared on the scene for example... Was there any kind of split in the JKD community after Bruce's death that might have hindered the art's advancement and popularity. I realise I could google some of this, but I would probably get distracted and end up reading stories about Bruce instead So I figured I would ask those in the know here and hopefully get an inside opinion in the process... Going back to how available Kenpo is here in Dublin - Ed Parker Kenpo has not been around much longer than JKD, yet there must be at least 20 places I could train in Kenpo all across the city, I can only find 1 JKD place and it's miles away! So is it just the fact that there was originally a lot fewer students of JKD that were able to spread the word and teachings after Bruce died? Anyway, I look forward to your opinions and thoughts on the subject!
