Bruce Lee’s First steps in Wing Chun

Recommended Posts

andrewsmith

A year after beginning kung fu Bruce Lee took up dancing the cha-cha, mainly because of his interest in his partner Pearl Cho, although it also served to develop his balance and footwork. Unable to do anything by halves, Bruce kept a list of over a hundred different dance steps on a card in his wallet. Along with fellow wing chun student Victor Kan, Bruce spent many evenings at the Champagne nightclub at Tsimshatsui, where they went to dance and admire the talents of the resident singer Miss Fong Yat Wah. A sharp dresser, Bruce insisted on ironing his own clothes. As he left the apartment each evening, he paused for a moment in front of the mirror to check his hair and flash the confident smile that never failed to charm the girls.

bruce always said he hated fights with rules, hence no sanctioned fights.

it sucks for all of us that bruce lee died but his wife linda once made a point about it.

 

she said "bruce lee died very young.  people will always remember him in his prime, not some old man". 

thats true.  when we think of bruce, we think of those abs, those kicks, those wings and in the best shape of his life.

before him, most martial arts movies were more ballet than hard hitting action.

he change all that with his fight scenes which were based on his fighting philosophy.
