Bruce Lee was beyond any doubt the greatest martial artist ever to have walked the earth. He introduced the West to the sport with Enter The Dragon – the last movie appearance of his life.
He invented his own martial art form called Jeet Kune Do. The name literally means ‘the way of the intercepting fist.’
The legend passed away at the age of 33 but left such an impression on martial artists worldwide that he is still revered by practitioners of the sport. Lee has even inspired countless video game characters!
Yep, that’s Chuck Norris
Thrashing the daylight out of Norris on screen? Check.
A statue was erected in Hong Kong to pay tribute to the legend in 2005 on his 65th Birthday.
