Bruce Lee - sparring
As far as known the only existing image in which the martial arts legend is in a fight.

"Do not fear the man who has 10,000 kicks ... fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."

Behold with your own eyes in color why Bruce Lee is such a legend. The speed of this man is almost inimitable, even on screen, while you have no idea what his next move is going to be.

The images are exceptional, because Bruce started to act quite quickly and as a result no longer participated in tournaments, because of the contracts he had to sign from film companies for fear of possible injuries.

A lot of people therefore wondered how he would do it in a real fight. Well, that question has been answered. This week a remastered video of a fight between Lee and one of his top students appeared, filmed during the 1967 Longbeach International Karate Championships.

In it we see the moves of the legendary martial arts master late at full speed.





No one doubted Lee's unparalleled skills, but it's cool to finally see them put into practice against a real opponent.

Lee mysteriously died in 1970 at the age of 32. Still to this day, he has a huge influence on the (Asian) film world. Therefore, as a closing what some awesome Bruce Lee facts:


1. Bruce is not Bruce
Bruce's family did not call him Bruce at all. His real name is actually Sai Fon which means little phoenix and is a maiden name. The family was afraid that evil spirits had a plague of boys. He got the name Bruce from a sister in a hospital to avoid confusion with his American papers. Lee is American of Chinese (and partly German origin).


2. Chuck Norris has admitted rationally that he would lose Lee in a real one-on-one fight.
As in Way of the Dragon.





3. Lee lost only once
Lee only lost a fight once when he was 13 and went so badly that he immediately started training with Wing Chun-master Ip Man. Incidentally, these were private training because his fellow students could not handle that he was American.

The Wing Chun master Ip Man also made awesome films with Donnie Yen in the lead:





4. He was known for his one inch punch
Lee can hit so hard that he could ram an adult man on a chair from just one inch (3 centimeters) away. Not surprising when you consider that he did push-ups on one finger. He was also absurdly fast. His films were normally recorded at 24 frames per second. But because he was too fast in front of the camera, he was filmed at 32 frames per second so he could be slowed down and you could see his moves.










5. Lee was seen dead in Game of Death, he died before the film was finished
Because Bruce Lee died before the recordings of his latest film Game of Death were completed, the film company invented a scene in which his character dies. There are actually images of his funeral in the film, including a close-up of his open chest and body. Freaky.

Couldn't find the scene unfortunatly






6. He was a philosopher and poet
Lee was a philosopher and graduated from the University of Washington specializing in the philosophical principles of martial arts. In addition, the smart was also a sensitive person and passionate poet. Below is one of his poems.

"Down the Western Hill
Down the Western hill the bright sun sinks
Making yellow gold or all the air.
On a lonely hilltop, away from the distant fog,
A golden dragon stands staring, with
Dreams that fade and those in the bright West."


7. His son Brandon Lee died on the set of The Crow
Like the death of his father, the way Brandon died was controversial. During a scene in which he is shot as The Crow, there appears to be a real bullet between the blanks. It is claimed that the scene was actually used in the film. The incident was eventually dismissed as an accident.

[Image: crow.jpg?quality=95&w=650]


There is no actual footage of Lee’s death — or at least none that has ever been found in the darkest corners of the internet. Those involved with the film say the footage of Lee’s fatal shooting was destroyed without ever being developed.

– Brandon Lee’s death was largely due to cost-cutting measures. Gun-play was a common place on the set with Lee telling one interviewer that during a scene he was shot “60 or 70 times.” The scene that took Lee’s life was rather simple compared to the previous action sequences, calling for a .44 Magnum revolver to be cocked and pointed at the camera. To achieve the close-range of the camera shot, the bullets loaded had real brass caps, but no powder.

The mistake happened when the freelance arms-master, James Moyer, was told by Carolco Studios he would no longer be needed and that the prop-master could finish the remaining scenes. After the closeup shot, the props-master dry-fired the gun, which knocked the slug off an empty cartridge and into the gun’s barrel. The gun was then loaded with powerful blanks that when fired by actor Michael Massee, propelled the slug out of the barrel and into Lee.

8. Jackie Chan was once beat up by Bruce Lee
True story.

The whole story about Bruce Lee is BS. He was an actor. Like van Damme or Segal. Fantasy hero of tiny Asian.

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
He would have been a force at the 135lbs division . As Is he would handle many of the top 135-145 lb fighters. He would need a year wrestling defense and get up to blue belt in bjj to be a champ

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
Wasn't Bruce mostly 125? My memory could be wrong. His fight skills got him into the acting door and not the other way around.

Bruce had a decent Judo background.


He could pick up styles much quicker than the average person, so a years Judo Training for him would be like 5 years for most people.

He was also pals with Gene LeBelle who worked with him on the set of Green Hornet. Gene would teach him submissions and wrestling moves during breaks between filming.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

According to Dan Inosanto, Lee was around 165 at his heaviest when he was experimenting with heavy lifts. But he didn't like how the added size compromised his speed so he quickly dropped back down to 140 or so.

He was like Serpentor from GI Joe but made of the DNA from Gene LeBell, Jack Dempsey, Ip Man and Steve McQueen.

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
bruce might have been a movie star, but you can physically see how fast he moves. he is faster than ANYBODY ever in the UFC

his strength was also uncanny

I don't recall ever seeing anyone in the UFC do 2 finger pushups or one armed pullups

but most importantly, he created an entire theory which eventually became MMA

that's why even UNCLE FESTER said bruce lee was the father of MMA

RE: Bruce Lee - sparring
He understood core training before anyone had a concept of what that was.
He has been dead for over 40 years and Is still the benchmark of power, speed and technique!

His books were amazing too. Especially when he talks about Dempsey and western boxing. Bruce learned Filipino Kali from Dan Inosanto, imagine him with a machete coming at you.
