Jun Fan Gung Fu, Jeet Kune Do, and Fencing

I haven't posted for awhile, as my offline time has been incredibly full.  But I came across this article and thought that perhaps I should share it with you all.  Being a martial artist, I had heard some time back that Bruce Lee's style was influenced in a very substantial way by fencing.  I came across this article which articulates some of that.  The author, like myself, is both a fencer and practitioner of Iaito (the dojang I am a part of is Korean and teaches Iaito as a companion to Kendo, but call Iaito by it's Korean name, Guhapdo), so I immediately took interest.

In any case, here is the link for those who are interested.  Enjoy!
