The Following blog was written while I was teaching in Italy recently -- I'm going to talk about a problem that seems to be prevalent in the JKD world today. I see it here in Europe and I see it going on elsewhere. That problem is the continual negativity expressed by individuals or groups of individuals against other individuals or groups. This has gone on for years, and I honestly doubt that it will ever cease. All the talk about one big happy JKD family is just that, talk.
