he World Jeet Kune Do Federation was born of the idea to bring the authentic teachings of Bruce Lee to the public in a way that was unprecedented.

The way we envisioned was on a massive scale where no one was excluded, more teachers were trained, and real JKD would be available in every corner of the world. To make this possible boundaries had to be broken, technology had to be developed, and prejudice and ignorance had to be disbursed. When JKD was developed Bruce Lee had to break down many barriers just to be able to teach at his schools.

For us to take the lead in a martial art system that was taken over since the death of Bruce Lee by infighting between instructors and students would certainly be a painful and daunting task.

Carter Hargrave felt that since he had been given so much from Lee's teachings that he would spearhead the effort to do the seemingly impossible, bring authentic original JKD to general public on a global scale, and at the same time try to "be like water" and spread calm and understanding in the arts teachers and students. "Jeet Kune Do should be the most popular martial art in the world, and if I have my way it will be." (WJKDF President Carter Hargrave)
