The Way of the Non-Intercepting Fist

English: The image of Bruce Lee on the wall

It’s a name that enables people to break into big grins and warm smiles. It’s the perfect icebreaker and a bridge that creates strong yet human bonds without the bondage. And how appropriate! As in life so it was with the films he made- a central theme and a running parallel to his own life and the times in which he lived and grew up in, Bruce fights bondage more than anything. This innate sense of miscarried justice and blatant suppression of what he called the “little man” drove him to right the wrongs and to bring about a sense of ‘ground lost to the bullies’.

An epitaph he worked on stands over the cross in a grave by a cemetery.
It reads: “In memory of a once fluid man now distorted by the classical mess”. I’ve always dug Bruce. There is no sense of ‘hatred’ in Bruce as we understand the word and the emotion. If one is in a mood for poems and recitals, YouTube Bruce Lee and watch the poetry come alive in motion. Or you could simply go for the double whammy – watch and listen to the man himself talk about his art in that priceless footage from the show “Around the World with Pierre Berton”. Bruce was not just merely an exceptionally well-gifted proponent of the martial arts but a true ‘philosopher-warrior’ and a man well aware of his flaws and shortcomings.

He left no room for accusatory fingers or jabbing jaws, preferring to enjoy that pleasure himself. There is constant reiteration on the need and relative lack of the idea, practice and cultivation of ‘Truth’ and its dialogue and interplay with one’s sense of self. In the course of that legendary interview, Bruce tells Pierre: “Being true to yourself. Not lying to oneself. To express myself honestly. Now that (big infectious Bruce grin) is not easy”. This is what makes and sets Bruce Lee apart from the herd and makes him the endearing enigma everyone and anyone could connect with and understand. 

He never bought the hype and the hoopla surrounding his person and image. On the contrary, he was the very antithesis of that projection as he took a position of mocking irony and oxymoron on the terrain wherein many lose the footing and the grounding to discover one-way tickets down the sudden, steep and rapid declines unto oblivion and quite often, personal tragedy.

If the dead talked, we would have some rousing tales, inconvenience regretted notwithstanding. Talking about the quest for truth and living the honest life with yourself as Bruce did:

“To me, ultimately, martial arts means honestly expressing yourself. Now, it is very difficult to do. It has always been very easy for me to put on a show and be cocky, and be flooded with a cocky feeling and feel pretty cool and all that. I can make all kinds of phony things. Blinded by it. Or I can show some really fancy movement. But to experience oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly, now that, my friend, is very hard to do.” And then he kicked ass again with the surety of who he was:To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

"I Am Bruce Lee"- The Ultimate Docu on Bruce Lee 

The statue of Bruce Lee on the Avenue of Stars...Probably “the best Bruce Lee documentary ever made”, this autobiographical-documentary features rare and never-seen-before footage and photographs about the legendary actor-martial artist. ‘I am Bruce Lee’ features brand new interviews with those closest to him, particularly with Bruce’s wife and daughter. It has lots of never seen before archive footage including rare footage from “Enter the Dragon” and clips from his appearance in the TV series “Here Come the Brides”. 
In Hong Kong, teams visited the memorial statu...
In Hong Kong, teams visited the memorial statue of martial artist and film star Bruce Lee on the Avenue of Stars. 
The filmmakers have also managed to get their hands on previously unreleased (and believed to be lost) color footage of Bruce at Ed Parker’s Long Beach Karate Tournament.

Despite his tragic and sudden death on 20th July 1973 at the age of 32, Bruce Lee’s enormous influence on martial arts, entertainment and popular culture lives on to this day. Utilizing rare archive footage, photos, movie clips and brand new interviews with members of his close family, as well as with numerous stars from the worlds of sport, music and acting who have been inspired by Lee’s legacy, I Am Bruce Lee goes more deeply into the true story behind the legend than any ever before. The film also examines Bruce’s connections to the establishment of Mixed Martial Arts as we know them today; acknowledging that if Gene LeBell is considered the Godfather of MMA then Bruce is without doubt the modern-day Father of MMA.

The film also shows extensive footage of Bruce training in the back garden of his Bel Air home in Los Angeles and at Bruce Coburn’s house (including Chi Sao training in Wing Chun that have never been seen before) and the first official release of Bruce in Seattle practicing Chi Sao.

Bruce Lee's headstone along with his son's, Brandon Lee, who died from a bullet firing accidentally during the filming of the movie The Crow.
 ‘I am Bruce Lee’ is directed by the award-winning documentary filmmaker Pete McCormack whose previous films include Facing Ali and Uganda Rising. Among those being interviewed are Linda Lee Cadwell (Bruce Lee’s wife), Shannon Lee (Bruce’s daughter), JKD instructor and close friend of Bruce, Dan Inosanto (Game Of Death), world champion kickboxer Bob Wall (Way Of The Dragon; Enter The Dragon; Game Of Death), Richard Bustillo (a former JKD student of Bruce Lee), actors Mickey Rourke (The Expendables; Iron Man 2; The Wrestler) and Ed O’Neill (Modern Family), NBA All Star Kobe Bryant, Taboo from Black Eyed Peas, actress and MMA fighter Gina Carano (Haywire), legendary stuntman and former wrestling and judo world champion Gene LeBell and UFC World Champion Jon Jones. It’s a gem of a treat for the Bruce fan and a wonderful introduction for those who have probably never seen him beyond the image of an incredible fighter, for hidden behind the art is a man who epitomizes the very essence of the ‘warrior-philosopher’.

The guy was certainly a master or a wannabe master with whom
she had the sex change. Beau Dickson, whose name has not been crossed.
Lets face it, how he does it all. Over 5 million fleshlight toys have been coated to protect from
the porous nature of wood. So it seems like a vast underestimate.
