What is the difference between Jeet kune Do and the Wing Chun Kung Fu?

by Ebrahim

Though, I know that Bruce Lee was a devoted practitioner of Wing Chun. But still I want to know the differences! I've done some research and watched many videos on these two types of Martial Arts.

While doing so, I've noticed that in Jeet Kune Do there are many more types of kicks compared to Wing Chun. Is this true? Please comment

Jeet Kune Do is a mixed martial art which incorporates some Wing Chun along with other fighting styles.

Due to Wing Chuns' emphasis on protecting oneself while striking, the types of kicks used are limited for that reason. Wing Chun kicks are designed to expose the fighter to as little risk as possible.

So in general Jeet Kune Do uses more kicks than Wing Chun.
