My experience using JKD in open karate tournaments worked too well for me but didn't work well in the eyes of the referees, because firstly it was too fast for the referee to clearly see what happened and secondly the referees are looking for solid 'Obvious' scoring karate techniques. So to make a point I would make my point obvious by striking my opponents. Would loose points but felt good even when getting disqualified. Could be considered bad conduct on my part but I know in reality that there is no such thing as disqualifications in real life combat situations. Personally JKD works better for me than what I have learned in the karate dojo. My physique is better suited for speed than it is for power. Speed is a major component for JKD techniques and Power is an important factor with karate. If my physique was better suited for karate I would change back to it karate ASAP.
