RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
Usually when you look at old clips of athletes they look slower

the old boxers look slower than the new guys, the old tennis players look like they are moving in slow motion compared to the new breed

bruce lee is ONE HUGE anomaly as his speed is VISIBLY faster, smoother, and BETTER than anyone even today!

show me one person that can move like Bruce. Anderson Silva is the only one that comes even remotely close but the economy of motion STILL isn't there with the SPIDEY

There is only one problem with Bruce Lee - he didn’t accept being large !

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
the just be large shit is the dumbest shit I've ever heard of in my life

people are defined by their limitations, if you lack one thing you make up for it with another thing

that's just how life operates and it contributes to diversity

imagine if 5 foot 6 or 7 bruce lee listened to Dong Johnson's advice. he'd just be on suicide watch lol

ridiculous defeatist mentality

work with WHAT YOU HAVE, instead of what you wish you had

that is actually a BRUCE LEE SAYING

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
I know.. you were being facetious lol. Was just adding to your comment.

Bruce was short, esp. for a fighter.. but that didnt' stop in

and most importantly his proportions were perfect. you couldn't really tell he was short

Bruce lee's swag was unprecedented.

complete belief in himself both mentally and physically. he exuded it. bigly!

DJ has issues and lot of self hate for asians. Sad

Growing up as only Asian male with no other role models - Bruce lee was truly a godsend . He represented a true alpha male ! Hyper masculinity mixed with Eastern mysticism and American Swag!

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
yeah he wasn't just a role model for asians, but for everyone

he could have the swag because it wasn't just about the body or " be large"

it was his thoughts and his outlook.. it was deep which gave him the inner confidence

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
just put it this way if you could be reborn as someone else.

would you rather be 6 foot 2 Dong Johnson

OR

5 foot 7 Bruce Lee?

the answer is clear.

lol

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
Bruce's adaptation of western boxing and fencing to his martial arts was amazing. He was one of the first to call out bullshido.

I'm sure a lot of you read his books and started your path to martial arts in the back yard like me. Stolen martial arts books from barnes n nobles and the early ufc's is how we learned. The glory days. lol.

Thanks to Bruce. I have lupus but Bruce said work out for at least 20 mins 3 times a week or prepare for a lifetime of pain. No matter how you feel you gotta grind 20 mins 3x a week. I know I paraphrased but Bruce was so important to so many of us.

My father would draw, paint pictures and my house was covered with images of Bruce. He was a hero in my house. He was a good father, husband, and son. He had a humble arrogance and demeanor that was truly unique.

Bruce lasts because he was more than muscles and physicality.. he had the mind to back it up.

not the deepest thinker, but relative to other actors quite deep
