James “June Bug” Livingston Jr. started boxing in 1970. His first fight was in 1971 in which he had lost his debut match. In 1972, he boxed in the Golden Gloves and won the 112lb championship as well as the A.A.U 112lb championship. In 1973, he won the open class 112lb Open Championship as well as the A.A.U championship once again. June Bug went on to the National Golden Gloves and lost in the quarter finals. In 19723 he once again boxed his way into the finals that he lost. He was chosen to be a part of the USA Boxing Team and won the Gold Medal. In 1974 he won both the Golden Gloves and the A.A.U Championships.
June Bug had 209 bouts winning 196 and only losing 13. He had a tremendous career and is truly a legend in Trenton’s long history of boxing.
I had the privlage of knowing June Bug for many years. He always brought a smile to my face. The last several years of his life June Bug along with Ron Harris and Terrance Miller helped develop Primal Gym’s tremendously successful boxing program.
For this I am eternally grateful.
In honor of June Bug on June 30th we are having the 1st Annual June Bug Livingston Memorial Championships.
Rest in Peace Brother.

Primal Radio featured interviews with Top Athletes, Coaches, Celebrities, and Entertainers along with irreverent and opinionated talk of the world we live in.
Today, only a handful of people in the world have studied Jeet Kune Do under my husband, Bruce Lee. Bob Bremer is one such student, and we are fortunate to have his recollections of Bruce’s teachings recorded in this volume. In the 40-plus years that I have known Bob, his legendary status among JKD practitioners is well-deserved. To my knowledge, Bob has always strived to pass on only the techniques and aspects of Bruce lee that he himself experienced without branching out, elaborating, embroidering on or interpreting anything beyond Bruce’s teaching. I respect Bob’s approach to teaching Jeet Kune Do, for Bruce had much to offer that did not require updating, revising or adapting. With Bob Bremer, you get the real deal.
Tim Tackett was among the first of the second-generation students, and I have known him nearly as long as Bob. Throughout the years he has studied Jeet Kune Do, Tim has also had a well-respected career as a high-school teacher, drama coach and published writer. Together with Bob, they have been passing on Bruce’s art of JKD in Tim’s garage to small groups of privileged students. This practice harkens back to Bruce’s beginnings in the early ’60s, when he taught his art to only a few friends for no compensation. In the ’70s, this was continued during Tim’s first years of Jeet Kune Do training in the original “backyard” group, and the tradition still exists in Tim and Bob’s Wednesday Night Group.
It is of utmost importance that the thoughts and recollections of Bruce’s original students are recorded for the benefit of martial artists who are interested in Jeet Kune Do teachings because they come directly from Bruce Lee. I appreciate the time, effort and primarily the love that Bob and Tim have put into transcribing their experiences. With the publication of this book, the art and philosophy of Bruce Lee will be preserved for the benefit of generations to come.
