Bruce Lee’s Philosophy of Martial Art

According to Bruce Lee, one of Ip Man’s students, Martial Arts is an expression of oneself through movement.  Therefore the way that the practitioner moves should not be a robotic set of movements which are crystallized, but rather, these movements should be as water which assumes whatever form is necessary for the environmental conditions the water finds itself in.  “If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup . . . now water can flow or it can crash!  Be water, my friend.”

For this reason I encourage students to allow their forms and style of competitive fighting to evolve.  Please watch this video of Bruce Lee:
