Special Appointments:

For the convenience of the description of this book and the accuracy of the reader’s understanding, F specially refers to the two short sticks of the two-section stick as “green stick” and “white stick” respectively (in all the example pictures in this book, the green stick is represented by a black stick, and the white stick is represented by a white stick); The chain or rope that connects the green stick and the white stick is called a stick chain; The close end of each short stick to the chain is called the “inner end” and the other end is called the “outer end” (Figure l, Figure 2).

When holding a stick with one hand, if the mouth of the tiger is facing the outer end, it is called “reverse grip” (Figure 1); If the mouth is facing the inner end, it is called a “positive grip” (Figure 2).

Bruce Lee on “Jeet Kune Do”:

Jeet Kune Do existed when yin and yang were one.

Bruce Lee was used to sticking a two-section stick behind his waist. In the 1972 film Jingwumen, the outside end of the stick is up, the inner end and the chain of the stick are downward when inserting the stick; When the stick is out, the outer end of the two-section stick is pulled out upward, while the thumb and index finger hold the green stick, and the remaining three fingers release the white stick, which can connect the five basic stick moves (Picture 3, Picture 4, Picture 5) such as picking, external picking, upper dance (positive and reverse), front dance (positive and reverse), and outer dance (reverse).

In the film “Raptors Crossing the River” filmed in 1972, the method of inserting the stick changed to first fold the two-section stick in a Z-shape, and then the outer end of the green stick was down, and the outer end of the white stick was inserted into the back of the waist; When the stick is released, the outer end of the green stick is drawn downward, and the six basic stick moves (Picture 6, Figure 7, Figure 8) can be connected to the trend, such as picking, external picking, external sweeping, upper dance (positive and reverse), front dance (positive and reverse), and outer dance (reverse).
