    Don't like the video? If you would be so kind as to
    FUCK OFF, it would be very much appreciated.
    You don't have to watch any of Dan's videos.

  2. I have been watching your channel for so long n you r doing great job.i like it very much. Keep it up.i used to watch octavio since 12 years.bruce lee was great.my childhood superhero.i wish i could get into tgis stuff but all of humans wishes never come true…may be few of them….😔.anyways i'm always happy to watch JKD and ur channel. thanks DAN

  3. I really enjoy ALL your videos and have learned a lot!
    Although I am not a JKD practitioner, I take a lot of the JKD concepts and apply it in my own martial art. That is why I consider Bruce Lee as an influential teacher for me.,even though I never trained with him or trained in JKD.
    I also use a form of broken rhythm that I teach my students. I call it "train the doggie". LOL
    By "setting" a tempo to my attacks, I "train" my opponent to react with the tempo that I have set. In a sense, I "trained the doggie" to react to that set speed ("Good doggie!" LOL).
    Then I suddenly change the speed to effecctively score on my opponents. 🙂
    Is that a "form" of broken rhythm? Or is it something else?
    I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

  4. I do boxing and i do music and yeah its more called conter rythm but that is almost the same. mix that with non regular punching combination and then you have a devastating option on your oponent because he canot anticipate!
    Great video!

  5. Rhythm in Roll….Rhythm in Release….Rhythm in Rate….Rhythm in Distance Control…..Heart rate sore in Stance (Toe in)….Heart rate lower in Dance (Toe out)….Good fighters bring what they got, but great fighters take away what they bring with rhythm……..Every Pro Boxing Club has Bruce on the wall and his teachings in the book…….Always be big love for the Dragon!!……..

  6. When I was 16yr's old my friend had a brown belt. I would always over power him, using broken rythems came naturally. I don't think we understood this at that time thanx.

  7. Only very very high level fighters ever understand and can master breaking their opponents rhythm. Even just discovering your opponent's rhythm is very high level skill already.

  8. Personally, I don't think that you have grasped the concept and practice of broken rhythm. What Bruce Lee discovered was that most fighting systems follow a predictable sequence of movement which each person trains until it becomes natural for him to move in that way. A good fighter will, very quickly, pick up the sequential rhythm and be able to intercept this, at will, without using a predictable pattern himself. This is a basic first principle of Zen, and not an advanced aspect of JKD. Advanced JKD allows a fighter to accurately predict every movement the opponent is about to do just milliseconds before it occurs. And that's Mastery.

  9. If Master Bruce was alive today, he would be very proud and glad that his followers and next generation students are doing a good job in incorporating and utilizing his very own created art which is Jeet Kune Do, and as such real and well define martial artists of any era; these disciples are not only creative but also helpful and very unselfish by openly sharing their good wisdom to others who are willing and interested in learning.

  10. Great coverage for this subject. Also the choreography with Chuck Norris in Return of the Dragon (besides this Game of Death vid) displayed the Muhammed Ali "Bicycle" type toe dancing that breaks the rhythm of always being "flatfooted". Love that Pak Sao drill too. I have seen various instructors use that drill; it was not around when I took lessons back in the 60's. All we had was the one where the partners bang their forearms against each other.

  11. this is very good technique but you do not want to get yourself into tunnel vision,

    say you are how to break your opponent's rhythm and he reads you and break your rhythm and he disorients you. how do you now tunnel vision in this case?

  12. hello my name is Jovani i am a 27 year old from Bethlehem, Pa I was hoping to talk to you about JKD and if you have classes. i messed up my arm 6 years ago and im really interested in JKD not only for me but my family. I want to learn because im scared one day i wont be able to protect them. as a man, husband, and father to 3 i need to know how to protect them and JKD is the way to do that. i know this is probably not the best way to contact you but its the only way i can find please get back to me. Thank you and have a great day

  13. This helps to see the basics of the JKD building blocks for us novices. Dan Lok is a great communicator. Thanks Dan.

  14. So broken ryhtm is an advanced tool , requiring flexibility in tempo and insight into your opponent's rhythm to break it, manipulate it and nutralize it. It's controlling movement. You've got to be fast, deceptive and insightful in seconds

  15. Hey,,,(Birhanu),this is the craziest jeet kune do fan,learner,Bruce Lee's big big fan(#1 fan in the world,,,,i have real reson for that),,,,,,,,Dan Lok ,,,thanks alot for all the videos,,,and training techniques,,,,,you are very blessed to be learned by Bruce Lee's original student,,,,,,keep it up….

  16. Broken rhythm.. flexibility, unpredictability, ability to read the opponent

    yes I have always believe this!

    when we walk, we stance, we move we all have our own rhythms and when we do things we love to do sometime we sing along and hym hym the beat along as well.

    Broken rhythm is new for me.. broken rhythm is really hard to read. 😃

  17. if i remember chuck noris interview he never said bruce lee shut him down though . He said that bruce lee liked to use one of his moves after acting with him lol :-D. But man its sad that bruce died would have loved to see what he evolved into in so many years. He would have taken martial arts further.

  18. This is perfect and beautiful to watch and learn. The Greatest, most Skillful Boxers alongside other Martial Artists often exercise this.

  19. If I am not mistaken, I never seen a tutorial or lesson like this or the way you teach here in you tube. What I mean is You are one of a kind. Keep up the Good Heart Boss.
    Thank you very much.

  20. Is lat sao exercise a broken rythem cause when you doing punch perry punch perry then suddenly for example hook or punch to stomach or lowkick is doing that stuff a broken rythem

  21. this is really cool and fascinating, im not advanced enough to execute this easily but- technically what you are doing rhythmically/musically is 1 and 2 rest — 1 and 2 rest – rather than 1-2-3 1-2-3 then when you go faster you are moving in between the 1 and the AND as in 1 E AND 2 – so literally twice as quickly gives you the in between punch.

  22. Exactly, mix things up, never get stuck in a pattern, because when you do, you become predictable. Don't be a marching band's metered tune, be Jazz.

  23. AWESOME video!! In my early training in JKD (and to this day), my brother and I were using these EXACT 3 beat concepts. This is an empty hand straight punching form of hu bud that I learned from Dan Inosanto (not in person) a long time ago. May I suggest here (for others) to not limit your training. Open up your mind. If you use your imagination, you can come up with endless variations of this excellent training method – including varying the type of 3 beat responses to your partners punch. For example: Once you feel comfortable with Mr. Lok's drills, instead of using the left pak sao (parry or slap block), right cover, left downward slap pattern to the outside of your partner's punch, you could use a left Tan sao (palm up block) to the inside of your partners punch, to a right pak sao, to a left tan sao. It's a little more difficult to do, but the variation will make you that much more efficient. You can also change the punch your partner throws: low straight, long hook, backfist, etc. All the same concepts of the broken rhythm would apply. By experimenting with the different ways to apply this drill, you make it more challenging and less monotonous and repetitive. As I wrote, there are endless variations in which you can do this drill. You can also do a 2 beat (left pak, right cover) switch to left lead punch, back to the 3 beat rhythm on the left or alternate left and right lead using just the 2 beat rhythm. Thank you Mr. Lok, for making this excellent video.

  24. i understand the point sir…..hey i love this song…or music at the background…can someone please tell me his source?

  25. This was truly enlightening and inspiring. Thank you. You have stoked the fire while teaching me to be like water.

  26. im used to broken rhythm, I just didn't realize it was the key to my success. It always feels like your intercepting.


  28. Wow, I really liked this video and I'm not even a martial arts guy! You can use this concept for a variety of sports. Consider a volleybal attack (my thing), jump high and therefore having the ability to smash at your chosen point instead of the 'standard rhythm'. I call it a buffer. But changing that position is actually changing the rhythm.. and will almost be a successful 'beat' every time when applied. Interestingly I regularly clap my hands when I explain the pace of the attack. And how about a discussion that turns into dominant situation when somebody rants and forgets that everybody on the table has his or her own equal piece to bring in. Change the rhythm. Thank you Mr. Dan Lok, what a lesson learned today!!

  29. The human brain is very adaptable, if you create a rhythm for the other person to follow, you can easily beat him if you break it and time the strikes differently. I’ve seen people do it in street fights and in the UFC. You just have to be watching the weapons, not predicting when they’re going to strike.

  30. This sistem challenges momentum, it breaks the tradition of patterns, to create a window of opportunity for the figther ,thank you!!

  31. There is nothing extremely advance in this video that retains to jeet kune do. This at most basic level training for broken rhythm.

    Lets not make something unattainable by making in "advance" out of something basic.

  32. In dancing you have down beats and up Beats… you dance on the down beats… dancing on the upbeats breaks the Rhythm…. rhythm is always counted 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8… the upbeat is the an count. Between the downbeats!

  33. Another technique is action vs. Reaction…. the time it takes to react from an action it's called lag time… Bruce Lee use feints for the opponent reaction, and make his hit before the opponent could take action!

  34. Another technique Bruce Lee used to do was bounce up and down to throw his opponents timing off…. somewhat like the Muhammad Ali Shuffle!

  35. How to change a rhythm count… 1 2 and 3… 1 and 2 3…1 2 and3! Right left right… right right left.. left right left… left left right… that's the hand rhythm… then you can bring in the foot rhythm!

  36. BROKEN RHYTHM IS THE HART ❤️OF JKD .!!!!! ADD , SPEED . AND ( THE OPPONENT IS IN TROUBLE . ) .!!!!!! . 😎👍🙏🏾🚨…GOOD TEACHING . !!!!! . 🙏🏾…..

  37. Great instructional video as always.
