DGK X Bruce Lee Yin Yang Jacket
The words that define Bruce Lee are endless. Most people identify Lee as one of the most influential martial artists of all time; elevating the perception of the arts to the western world while inspiring millions globally. His story is a classic tale of the underdog; an unknown artist overcoming insurmountable odds and stereotypes to change the world.
Bruce Lee created the Core Symbol as a representation of the culmination of his own self cultivation. This symbol is the final in a series of four that show this progression.
The Stages of Cultivation are: 1. Partiality: The Running to Extremes; 2. Fluidity: The Two Halves of One Whole; 3. Emptiness: The Formless Form; 4. Jeet Kune Do
The final symbol (Core Symbol) that represents Jeet Kune Do and Bruce Lee’s approach to life is a full yin yang symbol surrounded by arrows. The arrows represent the constant interplay of the complements of yin and yang. Finally the Chinese phrase surrounding the symbol translates to: using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation.
