Lamar Davis Demonstrates Simple Trapping and Compound Trapping


In this exclusive jeet kune do video, pulled from Lamar Davis' DVD collection Jeet Kune Do for the Advanced Practitioner, the second-generation Bruce Lee student explains and demonstrates the concepts of simple trapping and compound trapping.

"A simple trap is where a single trapping movement is used to accomplish your goal — which is to clear the line and hit the opponent," Lamar Davis says. "A compound trap comes into play when you try to clear the line with the first trap, you attack, and your attack is defended by the opponent, making it necessary for you to trap again."

Training Safety for Jeet Kune Do Techniques

In this exclusive jeet kune do video, Lamar Davis stresses the importance of safety in training while preserving execution follow-through. "When I train this [simple trap], I punch past the head ... so that I get to train penetration without hurting my partner."

How Compound Trapping Works

"If [my opponent responded to my first trap] with a defense — let's say he crossed the centerline a little bit — then that means I didn't get in here," Lamar Davis explains. "So what I have to do is trap again. I pull [his left arm] across [his right arm] to shut him down completely so I can land my backfist."
