Jeet Kune Do

Jeet Kune Do, or "The way of the intercepting fist" in Cantonese, abbreviated JKD, is a hybrid philosophy of martial arts influenced by the personal philosophy and experiences of martial artist Bruce Lee. Lee founded the system on July 9, 1967, referring to it as "non-classical", suggesting that it is a formless form of Chinese Kung Fu. Unlike more traditional martial arts, Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned and is a philosophy with guiding ideas. Named for the Wing Chun concept of interception or attacking when one's opponent is about to attack, Jeet Kune Do's practitioners believe in minimal effort with maximum effect and extreme speed. On January 10, 1996, the Bruce Lee Foundation decided to use the name Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do to refer to the martial arts system which Lee founded, it is referenced in the screenplay of the 1973 Warner Brothers film Enter the Dragon, when Lee is asked, "What's your style?", he replies, "My style?... You can call it the art of fighting without fighting." Lee believed that kata forms and martial art tournament matches alike were "organised despair".

He believed that in order to "fully express oneself, one must" "have no limitations". His system was new, included all possible forms of strikes: attacks to the groin, finger jab to the eye as well as biting; the name Jeet Kune Do was said by Lee to be just a name, he referred to it as "the art of expressing the human body" in his writings and in interviews. Through his studies Lee came to believe that other styles had become too unrealistic, he called martial art competitions of the day "dry land swimming". He believed real combat was spontaneous, a martial artist cannot predict it, but only react, a good martial artist should "be like water"—move fluidly without hesitation; when Lee began researching various fighting styles, he called it Jun Fan Gung Fu. Not wanting to create another style which would share the limitations that all styles had, he instead described the process which he used to create it: I have not invented a "new style," composite, modified or otherwise, set within distinct form as apart from "this" method or "that" method.

On the contrary, I hope to free my followers from clinging to patterns, or molds. Remember that Jeet Kune Do is a name used, a mirror in which to see "ourselves"... Jeet Kune Do is not an organized institution. Either you understand or you don't, and, that. There is no mystery about my style. My movements are simple and non-classical; the extraordinary part of it lies in its simplicity. Every movement in Jeet Kune Do is being so of itself. There is nothing artificial about it. I always believe. Jeet Kune Do is the direct expression of one's feelings with the minimum of movements and energy; the closer to the true way of Kung Fu, the less wastage of expression there is. A Jeet Kune Do man who says Jeet Kune Do is Jeet Kune Do is not with it, he is still hung up on his self-closing resistance, in this case anchored down to reactionary pattern, is still bound by another modified pattern and can move within its limits. He has not digested the simple fact. Again let me remind you Jeet Kune Do is just a name used, a boat to get one across, once across it is to be discarded and not to be carried on one's back.

JKD as it has survived since—if one views it "refined" as a product, not a process—is what was left at the time of Lee's death. It is the result of the lifelong martial arts development process. Lee stated his concept does not add more and more things on top of each other to form a system, but rather selects the best thereof; the metaphor Lee borrowed from Chan Buddhism was of filling a cup with water, emptying it, used for describing Lee's philosophy of "casting off what is useless". He used the sculptor's mentality of beginning with a lump of clay and removing the material which constituted the "unessentials"; the dominant or strongest hand should lead because it would perform a greater percentage of the work. Lee minimized the use of other stances except. Although the On-Guard position is a formidable overall stance, it is by no means the only one. Lee acknowledged, he felt the dynamic property of JKD was what enabled its practitioners to adapt to the constant changes and fluctuations of live combat.

He believed these decisions should be made within the context of "real combat" and/or "all out sparring" and that it was only in this environment that a practitioner could deem a technique worthy of adoption. Lee believed that real combat was dynamic. Circumstances in a fight change from millisecond to millisecond. Thus, he believed, pre-arranged patterns and techniques are not adequate in dealing with such a changing situation; as an antidote to this line of thought, Lee once wrote an epitaph which read:'In memory of a once fluid man and distorted by the classical mess.' The "classical mess" in this instance was what Lee thought of the "not too alive way of the classical kung fu styles". The following are principles, he felt them universal combat truths that were self-evident, would lead to combat success if followed. Familiarity with each of the "four ranges of combat", in particular, is thought to be instru

Cleveland Institution of Engineers

The Cleveland Institution of Engineers is a regional engineering institution in the Teesside region of England. It aims to serve the regional scientific and engineering community through a wide range of technical lectures and visits and by acting as the professional body for materials scientists and engineers; the CIE is one of the oldest institutions of its kind in the world and has been in continuous existence since it was founded in 1864. It is affiliated to the Institute of Materials and Mining and a founder members of the Cleveland Scientific Institution The Cleveland Institution of Engineers is the oldest Institution of its kind in the World, it was founded in 1864 by a small group of Engineering pioneers from the Steel and Railway Industries of the Cleveland area. The first meeting was held in the home of the first secretary, Thomas Whitwell, on 21 September 1864 and the motion was carried that:- "A society be formed, the object of which shall be meeting together at regular intervals, of the Engineers of the Cleveland District for the furtherance of the Science of Engineering" 42 members of the Engineering community joined the Institution at the outset with a membership fee of one Guinea.

The Institution was instrumental in the industrial and academic growth of the area, in helping to set up the Constantine College, now Teesside University. Throughout both World Wars and the Depression, the Institution continued to provide a regular programme of lectures and scientific excursions and to this day provides the Engineering and Scientific community of the Teesside area with a wide and varied lecture programme on all aspects of engineering. From 1864 until 1942 the proceedings of the institution's technical meetings were published. Copies of the complete series of proceedings and the institution's minute books until 2001 are kept at the Teesside Archives in Middlesbrough. In the 2013/2014 session the institution celebrated its 150th anniversary, with the main events taking place in the autumn of 2014. To mark the occasion a stained glass window with the institution's emblem was unveiled in St Cuthbert's Church in Marton, Middlesbrough during a dedication service on 23 November 2014, led by the Very Reverend Paul Ferguson, Bishop of Whitby.

St Cuthbert's churchyard contains the vaults of the Vaughan families. In the last half of the nineteenth century, industry in Cleveland developed at a rate never again repeated. In 1830 the Stockton-Darlington railway had been extended to Middlesbrough and the port established to ship coal. During the 1850s there grew an iron industry based on the accessible deposits of phosphoric ironstone in the Cleveland Hills, a fledgling engineering industry stimulated by the demands of the burgeoning railway network and the ironworks themselves; the Durham coalfield was a source of excellent coking coals and the railway provided affordable bulk transport. Large scale production of steel from local ironstone via the Bessemer converter was made possible by development of the Thomas-Gilchrist process at Bolckow and Vaughan's works in Middlesbrough and Eston in 1878-79. Conditions were thus ideal for the rapid growth of a thriving engineering industry supported by cheap, locally produced iron and steel. Labour was attracted from all parts of the country and Middlesbrough grew becoming a municipal borough in 1853, a parliamentary borough in 1867 and in 1888 a county borough.

It was in this period of rapid industrial development and municipal growth that the Cleveland Institution of Engineers was formed, on 15 September 1864, at a meeting of seven local industrialists at Thomas Whitwell's residence in Church Row, Stockton-on-Tees. The chief promoters of the Institution were Jeremiah Head articled to Robert Stephenson in Newcastle. "They had studied together and when they found themselves working in the Cleveland district, they were anxious to draw to themselves kindred spirits to discuss engineering problems as they presented themselves for solution." Thus began The Cleveland Institution of Engineers which since that time has been an important forum on Teesside for the presentation and discussion of industrial problems and developments. The three chief promoters at the formation of the Institution each served as Secretary and Vice President in its early years and each one subsequently became President: Jeremiah Head from 1871 to 1874. In August 1878 in the second year of his presidency Thomas Whitwell was accidentally killed by scalding steam at W Whitwell and Company's Thornaby Ironworks and a brilliant career was extinguished.

Thomas Wrightson served as President for a second time in the 1914 session, the fiftieth anniversary of the Institution's founding. Throughout most of the twentieth century the name Head Wrightson signified a major engineering manufacturer and contractor trading internationally and based on Teesside. Although, unlike his brothers Arthur and Howard, Jeremiah Head was not a direct partner in the Head Wrightson organisation he had married Rebecca Ingram Wrightson, Thomas Wrightson's sister. By 1868 the principal partners in the enterprise were Arthur Head and Thomas Wrightson and Arthur Head was appointed chairman when the business became a limited liability company in 1888.
