    Moral Code

    Thou shalt have no other gods before me

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image

    Thou shalt not take the Lord thy God in vain

    Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy

    Honor thy father and thy mother

    Thou shalt not kill

    Thou shalt not commit adultery

    Thou shalt not steal

    Thou shalt not bear false witness

    Thou shalt not covet

    [Note from Roy: Robert once told me that Barnie Silve was a very religious man andthat he had hoped that this version of Jeet Kune Do would become popular and usedas a way to minister to people; hence, the list of the Ten Commandments from the OldTestament shown above. Most forms of martial arts have a moral code that studentsare expected to follow so that they will become respected members of theircommunity. This was also the goal of Robert McClung and Barnie Silve.]

    [Note from Roy: Sifu Robert once told me that after Bruce Lee died; there werent toomany ways to get certified to teach Jeet Kune Do. This was a time of great confusionas to what Jeet Kune Do was and was not. Many charlatans were passing themselvesoff as Jeet Kune Do masters and their credentials were dubious at best. As Iunderstood it, years ago Barnie Silve started the American Chinese Kick BoxingAssociation in an attempt to approximate as closely as possible the guiding principlesof Jeet Kune Do as they were generally known at the time without using the title of JeetKune Do. The general consensus among many martial artists that didnt know muchabout Jeet Kune Do was that Jeet Kune Do was a combination of Wing Chun, Boxingand Wrestling. Years later, students of Bruce Lee started publishing books and videosof the teachings of Bruce Lee to keep the art alive and so that those people that did nothave the privilege to train with Bruce Lee would be able to learn about the fightingstyle of Jeet Kune Do. So when you combine the teachings of former students ofBruce Lee with what Sifu Robert taught us and combine them along with this manual,you will be able to see that most of this manuals content is valid Jeet Kune Domaterial. If you follow the goals of this manual precisely, you should also achieve aconsiderable level of fitness as well. As you read this, let me know if you find typoerrors that I have missed and I will try to correct them as best as I can.]
