Lee's right arm was partly extended and his right fist approximately one inch 2. Without retracting his right arm, Lee then forcibly delivered the punch to his partner while largely maintaining his posture, sending the partner backwards and falling into a chair said to be placed behind the partner to prevent injury, though his partner's momentum soon caused him to fall to the floor.
His volunteer was Bob Baker of Stockton , California. Rhee taught Lee the side kick in detail, and Lee taught Rhee the "non-telegraphic" punch.
Lee took several steps back and asked if Moore was ready. When Moore nodded in affirmation, Lee glided towards him until he was within striking range.
He then threw a straight punch directly at Moore's face, and stopped before impact. In eight attempts, Moore failed to block any of the punches.
Lee attempted another punch, and Moore blocked it as well. The third punch, which Lee threw to Moore's face, did not come nearly within striking distance.
Moore claims that Lee never successfully struck Moore but Moore was able to strike Lee after trying on his own. Moore further claims that Bruce Lee said he was the fastest American he's ever seen and that Lee's media crew repeatedly played the one punch towards Moore's face that did not come within striking range, allegedly in an attempt to preserve Lee's superstar image.
However, when viewing the video of the demonstration, it is clear that Mohammed and especially Moore were erroneous in their claims. According to Lee, the Chinese community issued an ultimatum to him to stop teaching non-Chinese people.
When he refused to comply, he was challenged to a combat match with Wong. The arrangement was that if Lee lost, he would have to shut down his school, while if he won, he would be free to teach white people, or anyone else.
Individuals known to have witnessed the match include Cadwell, James Lee Bruce Lee's associate, no relation , and William Chen, a teacher of T'ai chi ch'uan.
Wong and William Chen stated that the fight lasted an unusually long 20—25 minutes. When Wong presented the traditional handshake, Lee appeared to accept the greeting, but instead, Lee immediately thrust his hand as a spear aimed at Wong's eyes.
Forced to defend his life, Wong nonetheless refrained from striking Lee with killing force when the opportunity presented itself because it could have earned him a prison sentence.
The fight ended due to Lee's "unusually winded" condition, as opposed to a decisive blow by either fighter.
In Cadwell's account, "The fight ensued, it was a no-holds-barred fight, it took three minutes. Bruce got this guy down to the ground and said 'Do you give up?
A couple of weeks after the bout, Lee gave an interview claiming that he had defeated an unnamed challenger, which Wong says was an obvious reference to him.
Lee did not respond to the invitation despite his reputation for violently responding to every provocation,  and there were no further public announcements by either, though Lee continued to teach white people.
Jeet Kune Do originated in The controversial match with Wong Jack Man influenced Lee's philosophy about martial arts.
Lee concluded that the fight had lasted too long and that he had failed to live up to his potential using his Wing Chun techniques.
He took the view that traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalized to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting.
Lee decided to develop a system with an emphasis on "practicality, flexibility, speed, and efficiency".
He started to use different methods of training such as weight training for strength, running for endurance, stretching for flexibility, and many others which he constantly adapted, including fencing and basic boxing techniques.
Lee emphasized what he called "the style of no style". This consisted of getting rid of the formalized approach which Lee claimed was indicative of traditional styles.
Lee felt that even the system he now called Jun Fan Gung Fu was too restrictive, and it eventually evolved into a philosophy and martial art he would come to call Jeet Kune Do or the Way of the Intercepting Fist.
It is a term he would later regret, because Jeet Kune Do implied specific parameters that styles connote, whereas the idea of his martial art was to exist outside of parameters and limitations.
After his match with Wong Jack Man in , Lee changed his approach toward martial arts training. Lee felt that many martial artists of his time did not spend enough time on physical conditioning.
Lee included all elements of total fitness—muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility. He used traditional bodybuilding techniques to build some muscle mass, though not overdone, as that could decrease speed or flexibility.
At the same time, with respect to balance, Lee maintained that mental and spiritual preparation are fundamental to the success of physical training in martial arts skills.
In Tao of Jeet Kune Do he wrote:. Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation.
JKD, ultimately is not a matter of petty techniques but of highly developed spirituality and physique.
According to Linda Lee Cadwell , soon after he moved to the United States, Lee started to take nutrition seriously and developed an interest in health foods, high-protein drinks, and vitamin and mineral supplements.
He later concluded that achieving a high-performance body was akin to maintaining the engine of a high-performance automobile.
Allegorically, as one could not keep a car running on low-octane fuels, one could not sustain one's body with a steady diet of junk food, and with "the wrong fuel", one's body would perform sluggishly or sloppily.
Lee's father Lee Hoi-chuen was a famous Cantonese opera star. Because of this, Lee was introduced into films at a very young age and appeared in several films as a child.
Lee had his first role as a baby who was carried onto the stage in the film Golden Gate Girl. By the time he was 18, he had appeared in twenty films.
While in the United States from to , Lee abandoned thoughts of a film career in favour of pursuing martial arts. However, a martial arts exhibition on Long Beach in eventually led to the invitation by William Dozier for an audition for a role in the pilot for "Number One Son".
The show never aired, but Lee was invited for the role of the sidekick Kato alongside the title character played by Van Williams in the TV series titled The Green Hornet.
The show lasted only one season of 26 episodes, from September to March Lee and Williams also appeared as their respective characters in three crossover episodes of Batman , another William Dozier-produced television series.
This was followed by guest appearances in three television series: Ironside , Here Come the Brides , and Blondie At the time, two of Lee's martial arts students were Hollywood script writer Stirling Silliphant and actor James Coburn.
In the three worked on a script for a film called The Silent Flute , and went together on a location hunt to India. The project was not realised at the time, but the film Circle of Iron , starring David Carradine , was based on the same plot.
In , producer Paul Maslansky was reported to have planned and received funding for a film based on the original script for The Silent Flute.
In , Lee appeared in four episodes of the television series Longstreet , written by Silliphant. Lee played the martial arts instructor of the title character Mike Longstreet played by James Franciscus , and important aspects of his martial arts philosophy were written into the script.
According to statements made by Lee, and also by Linda Lee Cadwell after Lee's death, in Lee pitched a television series of his own tentatively titled The Warrior , discussions of which were also confirmed by Warner Bros.
During a December 9, television interview on The Pierre Berton Show , Lee stated that both Paramount and Warner Brothers wanted him "to be in a modernized type of a thing, and that they think the Western idea is out, whereas I want to do the Western".
According to these sources, the reason Lee was not cast was in part because of his ethnicity, but more so because he had a thick accent. I don't blame them.
If the situation were reversed, and an American star were to come to Hong Kong, and I was the man with the money, I would have my own concerns as to whether the acceptance would be there".
Producer Fred Weintraub had advised Lee to return to Hong Kong and make a feature film which he could showcase to executives in Hollywood.
Unaware that The Green Hornet had been played to success in Hong Kong and was unofficially referred to as "The Kato Show", he was surprised to be recognized on the street as the star of the show.
Lee played his first leading role in The Big Boss , which proved to be an enormous box office success across Asia and catapulted him to stardom. He soon followed up with Fist of Fury , which broke the box office records set previously by The Big Boss.
Having finished his initial two-year contract, Lee negotiated a new deal with Golden Harvest. Lee later formed his own company, Concord Production Inc.
For his third film, Way of the Dragon , he was given complete control of the film's production as the writer, director, star, and choreographer of the fight scenes.
In Way of the Dragon Lee introduced Norris to moviegoers as his opponent in the final death fight at the Colosseum in Rome, today considered one of Lee's most legendary fight scenes and one of the most memorable fight scenes in martial arts film history.
Filming began in Hong Kong in January One month into the filming, another production company, Starseas Motion Pictures, promoted Bruce Lee as a leading actor in Fist of Unicorn , although he had merely agreed to choreograph the fight sequences in the film as a favour to his long-time friend Unicorn Chan.
Lee planned to sue the production company, but retained his friendship with Chan. Enter the Dragon would go on to become one of the year's highest-grossing films and cement Lee as a martial arts legend.
Lee had shot over minutes of footage, including out-takes, for Game of Death before shooting was stopped to allow him to work on Enter the Dragon.
In addition to Abdul-Jabbar, George Lazenby , Hapkido master Ji Han-Jae , and another of Lee's students, Dan Inosanto , were also to appear in the film, which was to culminate in Lee's character, Hai Tien clad in the now-famous yellow track suit   taking on a series of different challengers on each floor as they make their way through a five-level pagoda.
In a controversial move, Robert Clouse finished the film using a look-alike and archive footage of Lee from his other films with a new storyline and cast, which was released in However, the cobbled-together film contained only fifteen minutes of actual footage of Lee he had printed many unsuccessful takes  while the rest had a Lee look-alike, Kim Tai Chung , and Yuen Biao as stunt double.
The unused footage Lee had filmed was recovered 22 years later and included in the documentary Bruce Lee: Apart from Game of Death , other future film projects were planned to feature Lee at the time.
However, at the time, Lee decided to direct and produce his own script for Way of the Dragon instead. In , Perfect Storm Entertainment and Bruce Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee announced that the series "The Warrior" would be produced and would air on the Cinemax and the filmmaker Justin Lin was chosen to direct the series.
The first season will contain 10 episodes. Lee is best known as a martial artist, but he also studied drama and Asian and Western philosophy while a student at the University of Washington and throughout his life.
He was well-read and had an extensive library dominated by martial arts subjects and philosophical texts. His eclectic philosophy often mirrored his fighting beliefs, though he was quick to claim that his martial arts were solely a metaphor for such teachings.
He believed that any knowledge ultimately led to self-knowledge, and said that his chosen method of self-expression was martial arts.
When asked in about his religious affiliation, he replied, "none whatsoever",  and when asked if he believed in God, he said, "To be perfectly frank, I really do not.
Aside from martial arts and philosophy, which focus on the physical aspect and self-consciousness for truths and principles,  Lee also wrote poetry that reflected his emotion and a stage in his life collectively.
Lee's principle of self-expression was applied to his poetry as well. His daughter Shannon Lee said, "He did write poetry; he was really the consummate artist.
Linda Lee Cadwell Bruce Lee's wife shared her husband's notes, poems, and experiences with followers. She mentioned "Lee's poems are, by American standards, rather dark--reflecting the deeper, less exposed recesses of the human psyche".
The mood in his poems shows the side of the man that can be compared with other poets such as Robert Frost , one of many well-known poets expressing himself with dark poetic works.
The paradox taken from the Yin and Yang symbol in martial arts was also integrated into his poetry. His martial arts and philosophy contribute a great part to his poetry.
The free verse form of Lee's poetry reflects his famous quote "Be formless … shapeless, like water. Suffering from seizures and headaches, he was immediately rushed to Hong Kong Baptist Hospital , where doctors diagnosed cerebral edema.
They were able to reduce the swelling through the administration of mannitol. The headache and cerebral edema that occurred in his first collapse were later repeated on the day of his death.
On July 20, , Lee was in Hong Kong, to have dinner with actor George Lazenby , with whom he intended to make a film. The three went over the script at Ting's home, and then Chow left to attend a dinner meeting.
Later, Lee complained of a headache, and Ting gave him an analgesic , Equagesic , which contained both aspirin and the tranquilizer meprobamate. When Lee did not come for dinner, producer Raymond Chow came to the apartment, but he was unable to wake Lee up.
A doctor was summoned, and spent ten minutes attempting to revive Lee before sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Lee was declared dead on arrival , at the age of The autopsy found Equagesic in his system.
On October 15, , Chow stated in an interview that Lee died from an allergic reaction to the tranquilizer meprobamate, the main ingredient in Equagesic, which Chow described as an ingredient commonly used in painkillers.
When the doctors announced Lee's death, it was officially ruled a " death by misadventure ". These included murder involving the triads and a supposed curse on him and his family.
Donald Teare , a forensic scientist, recommended by Scotland Yard , who had overseen over 1, autopsies, was assigned to the Lee case.
His conclusion was "death by misadventure" caused by an acute cerebral edema due to a reaction to compounds present in the combination medication Equagesic.
Lycette, the clinical pathologist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, reported at the coroner hearing that the death could not have been caused by cannabis.
At the San Diego Comic-Con convention, Lee's friend Chuck Norris attributed his death to a reaction to the combination of the muscle-relaxant medication he had been taking since for a ruptured disc in his back and an " antibiotic " he was given for his headache on the night of his death.
The Last Hours of Michael Hunter theorized that Lee died of adrenal crisis brought on by the overuse of cortisone , which Lee had been taking since injuring his back in a weightlifting mishap.
Hunter believes that Lee's exceptionally strong "drive and ambition" played a fundamental role in the martial artist's ultimate demise.
In a biography, author Matthew Polly consulted with medical experts and theorized that Lee died from cerebral edema caused by over-exertion and heat stroke ; and heat stroke was not considered at the time because it was then a poorly-understood condition.
Bruce Lee personally certified only three instructors: James Yimm Lee, a close friend of Lee, certified a few students including Gary Dill, who studied Jeet Kune Do under James and received permission via a personal letter from him in to pass on his learning of Jun Fan Gung Fu to others.
Dan Inosanto continued to teach and certify select students in Jeet Kune Do for over 30 years, making it possible for thousands of martial arts practitioners to trace their training lineage back to Bruce Lee.
Prior to his death, Lee told his then only two living instructors Kimura and Inosanto James Yimm Lee had died in to dismantle his schools.
Both Taky Kimura and Dan Inosanto were allowed to teach small classes thereafter, under the guideline "keep the numbers low, but the quality high".
Between the three of them, during their training with Bruce, they won every karate championship in the United States.
There are a number of stories perhaps apocryphal surrounding Lee that are still repeated in Hong Kong culture. One is that his early s interview on the TVB show Enjoy Yourself Tonight cleared the busy streets of Hong Kong as everyone was watching the interview at home.
Bruce Lee was named by Time magazine as one of the most influential people of the 20th century. And he had of course training in western boxing.
He had training in fencing from his brother, that's Epee, that goes from toe to head. He had training obviously in Wing Chun.
And I believe he had traded with a Choy Li Fut man. Though Bruce Lee did not appear in commercials during his lifetime, Nokia launched an internet-based campaign in with staged "documentary-looking" footage of Bruce Lee playing ping-pong with his nunchaku and also igniting matches as they are thrown towards him.
The videos went viral on YouTube, creating confusion as some people believed them to be authentic footage. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
