This is just my opinion, but it is based upon my experiences and observations.

I think that most styles (even so-called traditional styles)actually come closer to being JKD. The reason that I feel this way is because most instructors that I know make revisions to and change their martial art. Regardless of whether they teach wing chun, tai mantis, or hung gar, they make small changes in their systems in order to either make it more effective or to make it more competitive.

Bruce Lee's goal with JKD was to perfect his personal fighting skills. But JKD doesn't necessarily have to be aimed towards combat. It can be aimed towards improving performance in any area. After all, JKD is simply a philosophy, not a style.
