To My Dear Friend Chris Kent,
Thank you so much for your kindness in sharing your book with me – You’ve unraveled the blinding fast motions of Bruce Lee’s mind-boggling, super-human explosions, and given to us simple mortal beings the ability and comprehension to go through the motions of succeeding in our aim for perfection, by opening our minds to understand the message that my friend, my teacher, gave his best to enlighten us – Walk on with humility, sincerity, and devotion, my friend.
With unending sincerity of brotherhood,

  - Taky Kimura, Bruce Lee's closest friend and most                        senior student

Sifu Chris Kent is one of the most knowledgeable and accomplished Jeet Kune Do instructors in the world. Sifu Kent is one of those rare fighters who can also teach the art. His books are highly organized, easy to understand, and contain tons of very valuable information. I cannot give them or Sifu Kent a higher recommendation.
 - Burton Richardson, world-renowned JKD, Kali, Silat                     Instructor and author



"Just wanted to say I recently purchased a copy of "Jeet Kune Do: The Textbook" by yourself and Sifu Tim Tackett. Wow, what a great guide to techniques and applications. Brilliant explanations on the dynamics of each movement or combination. On the back of your seminar at Impact Manchester this is like a kick in the butt wake up call to JKD. Really enjoying reading it (repeatedly). Thanks."

  - Julian Chambers

"The Jeet Kune Do from A to Z books vol 1and 2 are like a great reference source for JKD fundamentals! I found this Especially true if you live somewhere where you don't have access to a legitimate JKD instructor. Sifu Chris Kent's knowledge is second to none really when it comes to tactics and strategies related to Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do! The chronological approach Sifu Kent has to training will free you from the nonsense of some classical martial arts and set you on a path to a life-long ability to be much more effective in ones ability to defend yourself or your loved ones should the need ever arise!"
 - Joffrey Stone



To me, you are also an instrumental part of my growth in JKD,I learned a lot of things from your books and DVDs. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
 - Neil Shi (China)

"A great resource of information regarding JKD and philosophy explained with excellent detail and to the point."
 - Paul Church


"Encyclopedia Of Jeet Kune Do to me is the Bible of the art. Even more so than the Tao Of JKD because it covers the art from A to Z and all of the nuances of the art that aren't taught or spoken about on a mass scale."
 - Greg Cummings


"I have Jeet Kune Do Kickboxing and The Textbook and find them to be an invaluable reference tool for anyone in training and for helping a beginner or anybody grasp and understand Jeet Kune Do concepts. Tons of drills and great information. Enough to keep you busy for a very long time."
 - Jim Novak


“The books on Jeet Kune Do by Christopher Kent are a necessary addition to a martial arts library. They are thorough, well written, simple, easy to learn and well structured. Both beginners and advanced practitioners will find great information in these books. Any martial arts library is virtually incomplete without any of the Jeet Kune Do books by Christopher Kent.”
 - Juan-Carlos Shannon Melendez


“Like most I grew up on Bruce Lee films, trained in martial arts since I was 12 and finally settled on JKD. Having read most of the JKD books out there I personally find Sifu Chris Kent's books the missing link between practicing and understanding. Read, meet and own recommendations for understanding more about a core Sifu within JKD.”

 - Liam Lucking 

"I have been doing martial arts since I was 8, however when I was 14 or so your book JKD A-Z pulled me out of the world of traditional martial arts into the world of self defense. I now teach Martial arts in Indianapolis and would love to get a chance to train with the man who put me on this path."

 - Michael Valenti
