Bruce Lee was the son of a famous comedian and actor who from a very early age was performing fake 'Screen Martial Arts' on stage and in some early black and white films. As Bruce got older he realised he wasnt any different from any other Hong Kong stunt man and there was no way he could compete with the likes of Jakie Chan who was prepared to jump of buildings n shit for real.
So Bruce decided to become a cha-cha dance teacher so he could get close to blonde American women. After years of hard dance training he finaly won the 1955 Hong Kong cha-cha dance championship. This was to be the only time Bruce competed in any kind of tournament.
A few months later Bruce got in a fight and had to be sent to America by his parents so he didnt get hurt .
When Bruce realised that no one in America knows anything at all about real Martial Arts he starts to teach a made up 'fighting system' that contains no moves, no form or kata that was realy a 'screen martial arts' system designed to be easy to teach actors with no fight experience to enable them look good in a fight scene. Many people have been fooled by the advertising agencies and people pretending to be instructors into thinking this was a serious fighting style and spend vast amounts of money buying books and tribute videos and TShirts and never understanding JKD for what it was supposed to be in the first place. Bruce eventually started to believe his own bullshit until eventually one day his brain started to swell and he died.
Oh yeah and he made a few movies in china to..
lol...Armchair Bruce Lee fans are usually 13yr old boys who get beaten up alot by 12yr old girls.
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.
