    Bruce Lee is one of my heroes and I enjoy watching all his movies. If he was still alive today, he could take on todays top martial artists and kick ass. I thought it was cool how he oculd adapt to any fighting style, like in the movie "Game of Death".

    The best way to describe it is calling it a fighting philosophy. It can be used with any martial art you desire. It preaches adaption: Being fluent + adapting to your enemy/situation.

    This is also the reason why it will probably never be liked by karatekas or practitioners of other stance based martial arts, Bruce Lee was against rigid stances of any kind and didn't see fighting in different martial arts but fighting as a whole.

    One could say that his idea was ahead of the times because the whole MMA craze started well after his death.

    Happy now?

    The Big Boss is SWEET...

    What I love about Bruce's films is that he tried to avoid any real conflict. He was pushed into defeding himself or someone else. Bruce only really kicked major ass when seriously provoked. Why anyone would provoke Bruce Lee is byond my understanding.

    In the movies: Because it's a movie.
    Outside of the movies: Fighters usually want to test themselves and their opponents, it could also be about bragging rights.

    Bruce Lee was a real troublemaker in his earlier days, he liked to participate in streetfights and such.
