The techniques look really effective, like something very aplicable for dangerous situations (which are not rare here), and really limited for sports as a lot of the best stuff is not allowed, it also looks like it may be a bit difficult to learn
Last, but most relevant to me, a tiny demonstration of Mande Muda pencak silat (a school with bits of all 21 base styles of indonesia, mainly cimande (think destruction, joints, limbs), cikalong (more joint manipulation), and harimau (that crazy ground stuff as well as other stuff) by Rita Suwande (who visited the pencak silat class here which was pretty freakin wicked, just I was up visiting my dad at the time.

What it seems to me is that involves alot of kicks, but does it in more natural and safer positions for the body (both in doing and in if they trap it) than Tae Kwon Do or such, and also focus heavily on evasion over blocking.
Some of that stuff seems real smart, and what I'd do if low to the ground.
haven't done it in about 4 months, just fell out of the habit
The basis for jeet kune do is wing chun, jeet kune do is essentially that + fitness + whatever works.
I have a cousin who does it a few hours from me, the instructor was one of lee's friends or something like that... you can tell from him what he learns it legit. There, they throw in filipino silat and pencak silat.
