The JKD Nucleus

The JKD Nucleus is a group of martial artists and non-martial artists that goal is to preserve the teachings of Bruce Lee.  With Linda Lee Cadwell and Shannon Lee Keasler at the helm, the group consists of predominantly ex-students of Sifu Dan Inosanto.

The Nucleus is in the process of disseminating what they feel is Sigung Lee's art... the success or failure at this task is based solely on your interpretaion of what JKD stands for.  Personally, as a historical preservation group I feel their goal is a noble one, as a body of individuals whose intent is to further the art and science of JKD I feel they have fallen far short of their goal.
