A 135 pound philosopher and and hack. Never competed in a tournement, for a very real fear his theories would be tested to failure.
1.) To be renowned for your attitude without any superior abilities.
A recent issue of "Black Belt" magazine was devoted to Bruce Lee (born Li Jun-Faan and called Li Sai-Lung in Hong Kong movies). As Joe Lewis pointed out in that issue, Bruce Lee never competed in any full-contact bouts, so he was only an actor. His real ability is thus a subject of speculation. It is a sure bet that many men in history have been much better than Bruce was. Some are men you never heard of. Oyama Masutatsu popularized karate in the 1950's,and he could easily beat Bruce, if both men were in their prime. Mas killed a bull with his bare hands. Wang Hsu-Chin of China was a great martial artist that amateurs never heard of. Karate masters broke their hands on his hard body. The master of Toad style in the 5 Venoms becomes invulnerable, and Wang Sifu and I achieved a great degree of that. Bruce Lee would only hurt his hands and feet striking a Toad master. Bruce was only 5'-6" his cousin said and weighed 135# in top shape (125-150 at times and even 165 when bodybuilding), so there is no way he could beat men much bigger and stronger. Many wild tales have been told about Bruce, so many men see only the legend and have no idea what the real Bruce was like. Some think Achilles was a real man in the 1194-1184BCE Trojan war, but he was not really 13.5 feet tall and 2300#. One sees how tales grow ever more fantastic about a man who becomes a legend. By the time Bruce has been around as long as Achilles, he may be 13.5' tall too. Bruce would not give Oyama Sensei or Wang Sifu a decent workout.

a.) That poser is a real Bruce Lee, only thing he broke was the toilet and he needed his mama to do it for him.
b.) Men who worship other men, or fear women or visa versa are punished by both, and natural forces. Bruce Lee fans are on of many reasons people think rape in prison is funny.
Superiour master of Kung Fu
and other Wu Shu
, the only "Hollywoodized" martial artist who ever came close to Bruce Lee's mastery of Kung Fu is Yang Sze
(more commonly known as Bolo Yeung
, he starred in a number of Bruce's movies, as well as the slew of Van Damme
's kickboxing flix -- almost invariably as the bad guy.) Jackie Chan, Jet Li, and especially Brandon Lee, etc., did not come close.
Contrary to the haters' belief, Bruce Lee has had a number of high-publicity fights, including one with Bolo(although not taped.)
Bruce Lee's fighting style, and indeed his whole life, has lots of controversy around it. All that controversy aside, the success Bruce Lee attained cannot be forgotten.
The World's Greatest. Period.
Brucee Lee's without a doubt, The World's Greatest.
To attack someone with great martial art skill. (A sideways tribute to Jeet Kune Do founder Bruce Lee).
Keep it up, and I'll go Bruce Lee on your ass!
Bruce Lee was the greatest martial artist/philosopher that ever was and ever will be, no one will ever compare to him. The world is a sadder place without Bruce Lee and his kick-ass martial arts moves and his philosophy's.
We should all listen to what Bruce Lee had to say, he was a great man and a Greater teacher....
Greatest martial artist of all time.
Be formless, shapeless, like water. Now, you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put it into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or crash. Be water my friend
Philopher and martial artist. Founder of JKD
. The first asian man to make it big in hollywood, despite his fame coming after his death. Contrary to the belief of a few idiots, he was actually a real-life fighter. However, his actual fighting style was more upright than the movie style he performed. He also took quite a few hits and wouldn't take on hundreds of people at once.
Bruce lee ruled.
