View Full Version : Bruce Lee showing off his technique?

04-19-2001, 05:21 PM
I posted this on the Jeet Kune Do forum buts its a little dead over there ;)

I agree with someone else that he didn't show off enough of his technique in his movies. Is there anything I can get on him a video, mpeg, ect that shows him really showing off his technique?

if he did you would have seen it 10,000 times in all those interview and documentaries that we have all watched.

Try iisports (http://www.iisports.com/iisports/)

There's a video called Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do at the above link.
It shows Bruce's old training sessions & so forth.

Hope this helps!

I have that video. It's not bad, but I wouldn't chalk it up as showing off. As was mentioned, it was a lot of the same stuff we've seen in documentaries.

Interesting to watch, but not likely to wow you.

i hate to be the one to break to to all of you... but, b.l. WAS showing off in his movies. (what would you call, single handedly defeating a small army? ala enter the dragon.)

if you mean, fancy moves... fer cryin out loud... he did wing chun!!!

to him, showing off entailed taking his shirt off, and showing how hard he can hit.

Seems like a pretty apt way to show off.

I have glimpsed some clips of some of Bruce's sparring matches, as well as some of his chi sao matches with his students. I think he was quite the showoff in chi sao (extremely quick and pulling off daring techniques that were quite unorthodox by wing chun standards). But all these films are the personal property of Guro Dan and a few other instructors at the Inosanto Academy and I highly doubt that they have been widely distributed. I'd like to take a closer look at them sometime myself, and I may ask someone if i could possibly get a copy.
