- This web page was set up 2 honour a great man, Bruce Lee, a place where can all come to show our respect and appreciation for all Bruce lee has done in his short life!
Bruce Lee was one of the most infleuntial and famous Martial artists of all time and to many the greatest martial artist period!! Many see Lee as a model blueprint for acquiring a strong and efficient body as well as developing a mastery of martial arts and hand to hand combat skills. Lee began the process of creating his own fighting system, or a concept rather(Lee was explicit stating that it was not a martial art) known as Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee's evaluation of traditional martial arts doctrines is nowadays seen as one of the first steps into the modern style of mixed martial arts. 30+ years after his death his legacy lives on!
He was an amazing Martial artist he had a flawless physique, he was an actor, a loving father and husband and a philosepher and he was takin from the world far to soon!

**These are not Movie quotes!**
"If I tell you I"m good, you would probably think I"m boasting. If I tell you I"m no good, you know I"m lying."
"Be formless... shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle; it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot; it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, and it can crash. Be like water, my friend..."
"Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it."
"The more relaxed the muscles are, the more energy can flow through the body. Using muscular tensions to try to "do" the punch or attempting to use brute force to knock someone over will only work to opposite effect."
"Mere technical knowledge is only the beginning of Kung Fu. To master it, one must enter into the spirit of it."
"There are lots of guys around the world that are lazy. They have big fat guts. They talk about chi power and things they can do, but don"t believe it."
"I"m not a master. I"m a student-master, meaning that I have the knowledge of a master and the expertise of a master, but I"m still learning. So I"m a student-master. I don"t believe in the word "master." I consider the master as such when they close the casket."
"Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there."
"Jeet Kune Do: it"s just a name; don"t fuss over it. There"s no such thing as a style if you understand the roots of combat."
"Unfortunately, now in boxing people are only allowed to punch. In Judo, people are only allowed to throw. I do not despise these kinds of martial arts. What I mean is, we now find rigid forms which create differences among clans, and the world of martial art is shattered as a result."
"I think the high state of martial art, in application, must have no absolute form. And, to tackle pattern A with pattern B may not be absolutely correct."
"True observation begins when one is devoid of set patterns."
"The other weakness is, when clans are formed, the people of a clan will hold their kind of martial art as the only truth and do not dare to reform or improve it. Thus they are confined in their own tiny little world. Their students become machines which imitate martial art forms."
"Some people are tall; some are short. Some are stout; some are slim. There are various different kinds of people. If all of them learn the same martial art form, then who does it fit?"
"Ultimately, martial art means honestly expressing yourself. It is easy for me to put on a show and be cocky so I can show you some really fancy movement. But to express oneself honestly, not lying to oneself, and to express myself honestly enough; that my friend is very hard to do."
"Use no way as way; use no limitation as limitation."

* Bruce Lee's striking speed from 60cm (24 inches) away was five hundredths of a second.
* Bruce did one-hand push ups using only 2 fingers.
* Bruce was able to break a 70 kg (154 lbs) bag with a sidekick.
* Bruce's famous "One Inch Punch" was able to knock back and off balance a 200lb man into a chair, using only 1 inch of striking distance. The target stands with their feet squared and is unable to turn to a sideways stance because of the chair being in the way, thus being knocked off balance.
* Bruce's last movie Enter the Dragon was made for US$850,000 in 1973 ($3.74 million in 2005 currency.). To date, Enter the Dragon has grossed over $100,000,000.
* Bruce was able to hold a 57 kg (125 lb) barbell at arms length in front of him (with elbows locked) for several seconds.
