5 ways of attack

 Upon reading many of Bruce Lee's regarding Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee describes 5 ways of attack.  These are: single direct attack, attack by combination, attack by drawing, hand/hair immobilization, and progressive indirect attack.  
Single direct attack simply means a singular attack.  I.E. straight lead.  Attack by combination means putting together 2 single direct attacks.    I.E.  straight lead to hook punch.  Attack by drawing means that I create an opening for my opponent then I intercept when he attacks.  Hand /hair immobilization simply utilizes trapping to shut down a line.  Progressive indirect attacks utilize facts and feints in order to create openings.
We at New York Martial Arts Academy teach the 5 ways of attack as prescribed by Bruce Lee.
