In JKD we begin not by accumulation but by discovering the cause of our ignorance, and oftentimes this involves a shedding process.

After all, ultimately, knowledge in martial art simply means self-knowledge, and JKD can become intelligible only in the vigorous and constant process of self-inquiry and self-discovery.
