    Need some help identifying this (Bruce lee - game of death)

    Hello, I'm interested in identifying what exactly Bruce is doing just before/after his famous lat spread in the game of death.

    To me it looks like some essence of Hung Gar Kuen, the fist shapes lead me to assume that as they look something of Tiger Crane

    Any input would be appreciated
    thanks

    Shows off (bellows) flexing V-frame twice. Yes looks like tiger/crane style which Bruce would sometimes show when describing animal style influence in TCMA.

    generic kung fu.
    the flex was pure ego.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Thanks a lot for the responses

    I enjoyed hearing varying input on this.

    Looks like some tiger crane style mixed in with some of his own ideas

    Ya, Bruce was notorious for making stuff up on the fly especially on the movie set. Whatever looked cool on camera. He was never stuck with a single ideal or style, but the most simple solution that would overcome the obstacle and the scene is very cool. I wish he would still be around to watch and learn from.
    Bruce Lee is MMA
