    I see that Jeet Kune Do also incorporates grappling. How does this art hold up against the more popular disciplines in MMA fighting?

    As in everything else – depends on the Martial artist, depends on the day.

    Your question itself is inheritly flawed. Jeet Kune Do is not a style, it is a philosophy. The very philosophy of Jeet Kune Do is “using no way as way, using no limitation as limitation” or “absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own.” Translation: MMA. The stylized Jeet Kune Do is simply a person’s interpretation of said philosophy. Jeet Kune Do is different from individual to individual. I agree with the above post also. It was Bruce Lee who said “there are no superior martial arts, only superior martial artists.”

    JKD IS the epitomy of MMA. It was the first MMA, but as thehoundofculan said, it is more a “philosophy” than a “style”. At least JKD concepts is anway, vs. traditional.

    Hmmm I’m not sure the appeal/purpose/promotional angle of MMA/NHB has much to do with philosophy or anything else of the more ethereal sort.

    Groundpounding in a cage doesn’t really reflect high spiritual pursuits I would think.

    Philosophy has nothing to do with high spiritual pursuits. That makes it unreachable by all save the most wise. Philosophy has to do with everything in your life. To quote Bruce Lee once more, “In Buddhism there is not room for using effort. Just be ordinary and nothing special. Eat your food, move your bowels, pass water, and when you’re tired go and lie down. The ignorant will laugh at me, but the wise will understand.” You see, philosophy isn’t about being extraordinary. The moment you think you’ve attained something like that, you’ve truly blinded yourself to everything that is wisdom. Wisdom and philosophy comes simply in being. Yes, that was off topic as hell, but I don’t care.
