Bruce Lee

Year 1940 is the year of the dragon, that year in a hospital in San Francisco-born Lee Hsiao Lung. Doctors who deal with the birth of the baby, gave her English name, Bruce. Thus the legend was born.

When I was 6 years old little Bruce was acting for the first time in a movie called "A Beginning Of A Boy". This is not surprising because his father Lee Hoi Chun is a film actor.

Bruce is a fragile children, including children who he even hard to eat. So when he was getting into fights in the style of the street he suffered defeat. At that time he was 14 years old. After discussion with his mother, he decided to study martial arts.

Types of martial arts which he learned was Wing Chun, he studied with Sifu Yip Man. He also studied with master kung fu Siu Hon Sung. Typically, it takes three weeks to master the 30 moments Siu Hon Sung, Bruce Lee only needs three nights only. Besides, Bruce Lee also received from his father's fencing skills. There is one unique thing, Bruce Lee is not only adept at martial arts. It turns out he was smart dancing cha-cha and even in 1958 he won the Hong Kong Cha-Cha trophy Championship.

Over time, Bruce Lee wanted to test the kungfunya expertise in real fights. And he was involved in a street brawl. Police give warning to the mother if Bruce did not stop ulahnya then he will be arrested. Then his father made the decision to send Bruce to the United States in order to become more accountable to U.S. $ 100 jawab.Dengan armed to the homeland she left San Francisco by ship.

Bruce was then decided to continue my study in Seattle and majored in philosophy. At the university he met a fellow Asian called Taki Kimura of Kimura had experienced a series of racist attacks. Based on compassion, Bruce Kimura motivate themselves to increase prices by way of his martial arts training. This was the origin of kung fu martial arts school and not long after the school had stood. This school is open to the public or for anyone interested. In stark contrast to Hong Kong.

In the new school was also Bruce's Jeet Kune Do techniques to create, cutting techniques of attack. Bruce believes the attack to cut better and faster than in the past to withstand attacks.

In 1967, Bruce starred in "A Man Called Ironside", as a martial arts master, Bruce often doing his own stunts without a stunt-man. His film career continues, until finally he could fulfill what is aspired to be paid is more expensive than Steve McQueen perfilm.

With particular consideration of Bruce decided to continue his movie career in Hong Kong. Starred in several films, now Bruce has been regarded as a national hero. Not satisfied with all that, he opened his own company because he wanted to write a screenplay, directed, starred in movies as well as next.
