The most famous cinematic martial artist of all time, Bruce Lee revolutionized the martial arts film industry with movies like “Fist of Fury”, “Game of Death”, and his Hollywood breakout film, “Enter the Dragon”. Lee grew up on the streets of Hong Kong eventually learning the style of Kung Fu called Wing Chun under the tutelage of Ip Man before later combining it with other combat forms from around the world to develop his own martial arts philosophy, Jeet Kune Do. Having taught non-Chinese students in San Francisco when most Chinese martial artists esoterically restricted their wisdom to their own ethnicity, Bruce Lee adapted to a multicultural society and emphasized never limiting oneself to specific styles or mindsets. Following his tragic and untimely death in 1973, his legacy has influenced not only the martial arts world but also popular culture as a whole. So here are my favorite Bruce lee fight scenes.
