Well it was The Green Hornet that made Bruce Lee famous in Hong Kong and he returned to Hong Kong  ...

But do not blame it on Bruce Lee for his ability to use jeet kun do to best all gung fu fighters of his time.  You ought to see his calligraphy -- quite original I must say.

Jackie Chan, on the other hand, lacks Bruce's originality and real martial arts artistry and star quality.  He is primarily a comedian.

  It would be foolish to sing the praises of Bruce lee's fighting skills because he was just an actor pretending to be a kungfu master, not a professional pug like Ali, who would have beaten   Bruce Lee to  a pulp if Lee had called Ali out.

  Let me repeat it again. Kungfu is just fake. Many Chinese men are starting to call into question the usefulness or effectiveness of kungfu.

Think of it this way:

He's just one Old World Howler swinging aimlessly among the trees.

Haha, so true!!

Caught red-faced.

You said it "showcases special effects rather than Chinese fighting technique ...

"Special effects is software nomenclature for computer animation, and did not arrive until the age of personal computers."

Yes, caught red-faced by you!

The only one to be adjudged as 'foolish' according to your parlance is you.  

Bruce Li established the school of martial arts called "Jeet Kun Do."  His teacher Yip Meng was a specialist in Wing Chung boxing in the city of Fu Shan in Guangdong Province.  

Bruce went to La Salle College -- a middle school in Hong Kong with a rigorous academic curriculum teaching both English and Chinese.  That's why to say he didn't know the Chinese language is the same as saying an Old World Howler doesn't know how to use its muscular tail to swing from tree to tree.

Totally unnecessary to be hostile to Bruce just because he could squeeze a bedbug like you under his little finger

While Ali (Cassius Clay) might have been a great boxer, he wouldn't have lasted one minute against Bruce Li.  Bruce's just that good.  While I understand a piece of trailer-park trash would be too jealous to appreciate a truly great fighter like him, you don't really have to make it so obvious.  You are far too kekeqiqi.

Let me repeat it again. Kungfu is just fake. Many Chinese men are starting to call into question the usefulness or effectiveness of kungfu
.

Not only do you have a very shallow understanding of Chinese kung fu, you obviously know nothing about Chinese culture, of which kung fu is just a small part.  Although no one is stopping you to call him a fake, in the end it is YOU who deserves that title because no one else has so many untruths stored in a pea-sized brain.

Bruce Li established the school of martial arts called "Jeet Kun Do."  His teacher Yip Meng was a specialist in Wing Chung boxing in the city of Fu Shan in Guangdong Province.  It can be said that Wing Chun was the father of Jeet Kun Do.

Bruce went to La Salle College -- a middle school in Hong Kong with a rigorous academic curriculum teaching both English and Chinese.  That's why to say he didn't know the Chinese language is preposterous.

Totally unnecessary for you to be hostile to Bruce just because he could squeeze a bedbug like you right under his little finger

While Ali (Cassius Clay) might have been a great boxer, he wouldn't have lasted one minute against Bruce Li.  Bruce's just that good.  While I understand a piece of trailer-park t.rash would be too jealous to appreciate a truly great fighter like him, you don't really have to make it so obvious.

No need to repeat anything.  Even the deaf-mutes among us understand where you are coming from.  Not only do you have a very sketchy understanding of Chinese kung fu, you obviously know nothing about Chinese culture, of which kung fu is just a small part.  

Although no one is stopping you to call him a fake, in the end it is YOU who deserves that title because no one can challenge you in terms of your capacity to store so many untruths in a frothy pea-sized brain.
