Ya bigred, slow down, you'll have a cyber heart attack, (if those exsit) When you pick fights, it's not testing yourself, it's a weakness, cause you're trying to prove something to yourself... If you really think you need pratise, get a punching bag and spar for an hour, or ask a friend to where a whole lot of pillows....... This art comes with alot more than fighting.

Gene LeBell taught bruce lee basic grappling skills and basically tied bruce in a knot every time they rolled.

No offence I think you are watching to many films or you think your a charcter out of mortal combat.Wake up and smell the cornflakes. A true martial artist is always humble and has nothing to prove.Yes I agree your trianing gives you a little edge in a street scenrio.But I would talk my way out of a fight or only fight as a very last resort.And only then to defend my self or to protect a friend.

I'm sure that's the way any of us would use your skills, simply for self-defence. And I don't believe Bruce Lee used to 'pick' fights with people.

From what I've heard from over the years is that B.L never had 1 competetive fight. For all I know he may have had a glass jaw. (funny how dojos fill up when he's movies have ben on telly)

one time on the set of one of his movies, a kid was cocking off so "bruce kick the shiit out of him" thats a quote from one of bruces students.

and before that. bruce had around 4 accounts of assult and battary against U.S solders.

so dont tell me that bruce didnt pick fights or at least tryed to ignore them,

At the end of the day big red he was a great Kung Fu actor and i dont know anyone who doesn't like Bruceys films, And so what if he used to pick fights with people some people are like that (however i done a search on the net couldnt find anything about him attacking soldiers and etc.

My two favourite things about Bruce Lee are 1 His Films and 2 His book, anyone read it although most of it is his own philosophy some of it is actually pretty good and he's obviously spent time looking at different arts and talking about the good points from them. He also talks about learning "flashy kicks" to amaze the camera and audience!

So my view is excellent actor, alright writer. But as for picking fights with people that might've been him but I dont think he'd last five minutes with a good MMA fighter........... but we'll never know...... ________________________________________________

As for...

a kid was cocking off so "bruce kick the shiit out of him" thats a quote from one of bruces students.

If your instructor got into a fight, would you tell your friends the truth or build it up to something like that? I think most of us would exaggerate ever so slightly, plus, has this quote done the round of chinese whispers?

Just a few things to bear in mind. --------------------------------------------- Robsco! - The Site Administrator 'I'm sure your style is impressive on other planets, however, your weak link is that this is Earth'

No true martial artist would walk around looking for fights. Bruce Lee was a true martial artist. Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.

sorry man but that doesnt make you the best martial artist in the world. When you learn what you learn from the street you will pick up the methods of fighting and thinking that martial arts try to steer people away from.

Also Bruce Lee is Kung Fu actor, nothing more. Did you guys know that biceps his big would actually worsen his ability to perform kung fu? Biceps arent used in kung fu strikes.. The guy is all show and Big Red, you definately need a change in attitude you rookie.

Bruce Lee was not practise kung fu when he set up his own dojo.He practised keet june which is basically using what works and taken from different form of M.A. Yes he did pick fights in his youth in Hong kong before going to the states.
And this is not a racist slante agaisnt anyone who is chinese.But i,ve been to Hong Kong and there is a lot of kids on the street that do look for fights.But in saying that all you have to do is go into any town centre in the UK at the weekend and you can get all the trouble you want.

But as M.A. actors go i have always been a fan of Steven Seagal.He seems to be very humble and focused.

Jeet Kune Do, i beleive and he was a practitioner of Kung Fu and Wing Chun and devised his own art which he taught out of his dojo's he also closed every last one them because he didnt like what was being taught!

Try not to hang around them chinese crack den's you wont get your arse kicked as much.

And as for Steven Seagal what a fat man.........
