How do you fight?

"I wanted a high position in life, I found it in modesty. I wanted leadership, I found it in giving advice. I wanted dignity, I found it in honesty. I wanted greatness, I found it in poverty. I wanted lineage, I found it in virtue. I wanted majesty, I found it in contentment. I looked for peace and found it in asceticism." - Uwais al Qarni

I would like to do JEET KUNE DO has any 1 done this.
You should consider Wing Chun, because much of Jeet Kune Do is centered around basic Wing Chun.
Bruce Lee never mastered Wing Chun it must be remembered as he only studied it briefly under Ip Man's senior student, so he wasn't even a proper Wing Chun student, therefore his later claims that it too had severe limitations should be taken in the context that Bruce Lee wasn't really a seasoned practitioner.
JKD was basically Bruce Lee's idea that martial arts should be constantly developing and evolving and not limited by traditions and rituals - which is a fair point, however ironically it became a martial art in itself - which I don't think Bruce Lee neccessarily intended. I think the borrowing from other styles can make it a bit confusing as a student too.
Wing Chun is a tried and tested martial art that developed in the backstreets and rooftops of Hong Kong street fights. I may be biased, but I honestly believe Wing Chun to be the most superior fighting form there is.
I'd suggest you look into WC first.

Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
