I think it’s safe to assume that Bruce Lee was one of the main reasons we all started loving martial arts. I can recall many afternoons during my childhood watching Game of Death, Enter the Dragon or Fist of Fury sprawled out on my couch drinking Ecto cooler AKA green high fructose corn syrup. Bruce Lee beat up a prime Chuck Norris and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Think about that, talk about reach advantage. OK, sure they were movies, but does anyone really think Bruce Lee could ever lose a fight against anyone anyways? I sure don’t. 6 months of sprawl training and Bruce Lee is your champ. I Don’t care about the weight class, Bruce wins.
So it’s pretty darn cool to see martial artist’s such as Dan Hardy paying their respects to the grave of Bruce and Brandon Lee before he fights at UFC Fight Night in Seattle tomorrow, Chuck Norris jokes will come and go but no one will ever laugh about The Dragon. The guy who made generations of kids throw a kick and go ‘whhhhaaaaaaaaa!’
