Bruce Lee is the king! A true philosopher, fighter, martial artist, actor and human being. I especially respect him since he did not let the traditional Chinese views limit his outlook on life and his art. We 老外 or 鬼佬 or Non-Chinese owe Bruce Lee for introducing Chinese Arts unreservedly, for Bruce Lee had a grand foresight set on improving, developing and empowering every man and woman who was willing to open their minds. I just got a book titled 'Origins of CHINESE MARTIAL ARTS' illustrated by Jack Cheong (ISBN 981-229-268-3). One chapter was dedicated to Bruce "Three Legs" Lee. It gives a good account of the hero in an illustrative and light-hearted manner. Bruce Lee also had a deep grasp on what life is about - apart from Martial Arts ... A true spiritual dude! He said for example, learning a language has various levels, of which just knowing how to pronounce the words properly and the ability to write in such language is still NOT a true grasp of the language. Language is about spirit, feeling, expressing one's mind. This he also compared to Martial Arts, like an analogy. A good fighter isn't necessarily a true Martial artist. You just have to research this genius.|
Jackie Chan is obviously a talented individual, with a variety of acting and entertainment skills...and Jet Lee has an aura that captivates his fans world-wide. He is also a fluid and skilled martial art....but they can't compare with Bruce Lee I am afraid. All you need do is ask them - they have highly praised Bruce Lee too in interviews and on media publications.
Bruce Lee made me understand that Martial Arts is not limited to fighting....but expressing oneself truly! (When I heard others say these words, I used to feel this was waffles as Martial Arts is inseparable from physical armed or unarmed combat...... now I see, in fact, Martial arts has a such a wide scope that in some aspects, it has nothing at all to do with fighting! And I ain't talking about Tai Chi or Chinese medicine here. Research the genius to enlighten yourself!)
