The "Inside-Out" approach to personal and self , even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self - with your paradigms, your character, and your motives.

It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.

Learning is definitely not mere imitation or the ability to accumulate and conform to fixed knowledge. Learning is a constant process of discovery and never a concluding one. In JKD we begin not by accumulation but by discovering the cause of our ignorance, and oftentimes this involves a shedding process. Truth will not come until we have come to understand personally the whole process of the working of our being. 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.

So, in other words, they're paying me to show them, in combative form, the art of expressing the human body.
