In a Jeet Kune Do class it is often overheard that a good fighter limits his opponents tools.
What does this statement mean?
In simple terms, limiting my opponents tools simply means that I put myself in a position where I am able to strike my opponent without him being able to strike me.
One of the ways we are able to do this is with footwork. This is another reason why footwork is extremely important in the art of Jeet Kune Do.
If we are able to strike our opponent without him striking us. Then we are at a big advantage.
