On November 27, 1940 in San Francisco, Lee Jun Fan was born in the Year of the Dragon at the Jackson St. Hospital in the Chinatown     District of San Francisco. He was later named Bruce Lee. His father, Lee Hoi Chuen, a Cantonese Opera Company performer was in America touring at the time.

In 1941, Bruce and his parents return to their home in Kowloon of Hong Kong.

Bruce begins his professional screen debut in the movie, "Beginning of a Boy". He appears in 20 more films in Southeast Asia during his later years of childhood lastly being in the film, "The Orphan" at age 18.

In 1953, Bruce was involved in many street fights in Hong Kong. Because of this, he becomes a student of Sifu Yip Man, a master of Wing  Chun Kungfu.

In 1958, Bruce, an expert dancer, is the victor of the Crown Colony Cha-Cha Championship in Hong Kong.

In 1959, Bruce is involved in more brawls in the streets resulting in police involvement. Bruce's parents decide that since Bruce has American citizenship, he should return to San Francisco.

After arriving in San Francisco in 1959, Bruce stays with an old friend of his father's working jobs around various Chinese Communities. After a while, Bruce moves to Seattle working for Ruby Chow, another friend of his father's. Bruce is living in a room above her restaurant while being a waiter downstairs. Later on, Bruce enrolls at Edison Technical School to earn his high school diploma. He also begins teaching kungfu is backyards and city parks.

In the springtime of 1961, Bruce enrolls at the University of Washington in Seattle. He has a major in Philosophy and continues to teach kungfu to students at school.

Roughly two years later, 1963, Bruce returns to Hong Kong after 4 years since his arrival in the U.S. in the summer. He goes back to Seattle to continue school at the end of summer.

On October 25 of the same year, Bruce takes out Linda Emery for their first date. The couple have dinner at the Space Needle.

In the memorable year of 1963 in the Fall Season, the Seattle based Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute is relocated into a building near the university campus. The address is 4750 University Way.

In the summer of 1964, Bruce moves to Oakland to open a second school. Taky Kimura, his good friend, takes over the Seattle based school as head instructor.

A day to remember, August 17, 1964, Bruce returns to Seattle to ask for Linda Emery's hand in marriage. After, they reside back in Oakland.

In Oakland, 1964, after several months of teaching students, Bruce is challenged by a leading Gung Fu practinioner in the Chinatown Community. If Bruce were to lose the challenge, he was either to close his school or put an end to his teaching to non-Chinese. At that time, Chinese didn't accept teaching non-Chinese their martial arts. In the 1900's, the Boxer Rebellion were severely beaten by Western Forces. The Boxer Rebellion desired the Westeners to be expelled from China. The Western Forces punished this rebellion and gave beatings to the Chinese Army. Therefore, Chinese are reluctant to teach Westeners their martial arts. Bruce accepts this challenge and wins in only a couple of minutes. But Bruce was upset though on why the fight took longer than usual so he begins to re-evaluate his style. Thus, the early concepts of Jeet Kune Do (JKD) were born.

On August 2, 1964 in Long Beach,California, Ed Parker, the founder of American Kenpo invites Bruce for a demonstration at his first International Karate Championships. It just so happened that in the audience was Jay Sebring, the hair stylist for Batman producer William Dozier who is looking to cast a part in a TV series he was developing. Sebring feels that Bruce has potential in becoming a part of this TV series so a film of Bruce's demonstration was given to Dozier. Dozier is amazed at what Bruce can do so he asks Bruce to fly down to Los Angeles for a screen test. 

A memorable date is February 1, 1965 when Brandon Lee is born in Oakland, California.

On February 8, 1965, in Hong Kong, Lee Hoi Chuen, Bruce's father passes away.

In Los Angeles of 1966, Bruce and his family move there where he begins working on a new TV series called "The Green Hornet" playing the role as Kato. Also, Bruce opens the third branch of the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute in the Chinatown district of Los Angeles.

From 1967 to 1971 in Hollywood, Bruce plays bit parts in various films and TV series like Marlowe and Longstreet. He also gave private lessons to well known actors and celebrities at that time like Steve McQueen, James Garner, James Coburn, Roman Polanski, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Lee Marvin for $250 an hour!

On April 19, 1969, Bruce's daughter Shannon Lee is born in Santa Monica, California.

In Los Angeles of 1970, Bruce injured his back while training. While he was injured, he starts to document his training methods and philosophy of Jeet Kune Do meaning, "Way of the intercepting Fist". After his death, "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" was published by his wife Linda Lee.

In 1971, Bruce returns to Hong Kong to arrange for his mother to live in the U.S.. Bruce didn't know though that he had become a superstar in HK since "The Green Hornet" was one of the most popular TV shows there. Raymond Chow, owner of the new production company Golden Harvest Productions offered a leading role to Bruce in the movie "The Big Boss". Bruce accepts while being paid over $100 000.

In July of 1971 in Thailand, the filming of "The Big Boss" begins. In the U.S., it was released as "Fists of Fury". When it premiered in Hong Kong, it broke all Hong Kong box office records proceeding to gross more than #$3.5 million in less than three weeks!

In Hong Kong of 1972, "Fist of Fury", called "The Chinese Connection" in the U.S., is released and once again breaks all the box office records in Hong Kong and grosses more than "The Big Boss". This further established Bruce as an HK superstar. 

In 1972, filming begins in Rome, Italy of his third film titled "The Way of the Dragon" and called in the U.S. "Return of the Dragon". Bruce directed, wrote, and starred in this film. Chuck Norris is Bruce's adversary in the final fight scene of the movie. Chuck Norris is a master of Tang Soo Do, a Korean martial art. This film once again breaks all box office records.

In Hong Kong of the same year, Bruce begins to work on "Game of Death". Bruce films several of the fight scenes at the end of the movie. First it's just a fighting match with what looked like a TKD master. Next was a nunchaku fight. After was the fight with basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Danny Inosanto was in there too.

In February of 1973, Hong Kong, the filming of "Enter the Dragon" begins. It was the first-ever production between the U.S. and Hong Kong film industries. Before when Bruce made up the idea of a Kungfu TV series, the part was instead given to David Carradine because Westeners were reluctant to have an Asian having the lead role. So Bruce went back to Hong Kong, in a way, disgusted, and then made some pretty big movies so Hollywood came calling back. "Enter the Dragon" was Bruce's masterpiece and I personally think so too! Because of this, "Game of Death" is never finished. Later on though after Bruce's death, they used phony Bruce Lee imitators for the beginning parts. In the movie "Game of Death", everbody would be hollering because of the phony Bruce Lee imitators but at the end when it was the real Bruce, everyone would cheer.

In April of 1973, HK, the filming of "Enter the Dragon" was completed. This was Bruce's final film and his masterpiece.

On July 20, 1973, HK, Bruce Lee dies of an apparent cerebral edema (swelling of the brain) because of an allergic reaction to some headache pills. "Enter the Dragon" premieres a month later to much success.

On July 25, 1973, HK, Bruce's funeral ceremony was held for friends and fans with over 25 000 people attending. Bruce was in the Chinese outfit he wore in "Enter the Dragon". The funeral was filmed at part of the footage was shown as a clip in "Game of Death" when Bruce was Billy Lo and pretending to be dead.

On July 30, 1973, Seattle, a smaller second ceremony is held. Bruce Lee was buried as Lake View Cemetery. Among the pallbearers were his students, friends, and brother: Danny Inosanto, Taky Kimura, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, and brother Robert Lee.

More videos will be coming soon..

Mind-blowing, isn’t it? If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it first, because that’d make what I have to say next even more astounding.

Most of us who watch someone so amazingly skilled at what he does would think that Bruce must have had all the right talents and all the right opportunities to get where he did.
 
 
While he did undoubtedbly had potential locked within him, did you know he faced massive obstacles to unleash that giant within? In fact, did you know that at one time, he was injured so badly he was told he would never be able to practice martial arts again for the rest of his life? How did he overcome that?
 
 
What would you say if I told you that you might also have that same potential locked within you? Then the only question would be; how do you explode that talent’s growth? If there’s anyone who’s been there, done that, and can give us clues to the answer, it’s Bruce Lee
 
 
6 Things You Didn’t Know About Bruce Lee’s Success
 

1) He never finished university. Growing up a teenage in Hong Kong, Bruce would get into fights. After a particularly bloody one involving a trip to the police station, Bruce’s family decided to send him back to America where he was born.

In 1964, at the end of his junior year, Bruce decided to drop out of university to head the Seattle branch of his Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute, and dedicate himself to expanding his martial arts schools, joining the ranks of people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, people who never finished university and became massive successes later on in life.
 
Not to say that Bruce was an idiot! In fact, he had been a philosophy major before he left the University of Washington. And not to say you shouldn’t go to university either! But Bruce never let the lack of a degree stop him from achieving his heart’s desires.
 
 

2) He almost never practiced martial arts again. In 1970, with The Green Hornet series in which he co-starred in cancelled and finances tight, Bruce failed to warm up properly during one of his weight-training routines and severly injured his back.

The doctors told him to rest in bed, and to forget kung fu: he would never kick again.

To someone whom once said that everything he learned, he learned from martial art, this would be a devastating blow. With financial worries bearing down on him, Bruce could only lay flat on his bed for the next three months, and for another three months be confined indoors.

But even then, he refused to let this stop him. If he couldn’t work out his body, he could work out his mind. In those six months he wrote furiously, penning down his own thoughts and methods of the martial arts which he so loved.

In six months’ time, he had written eight, two-inch volumes of notes. And in all that time, with evidence to the contrary, he refused to believe that he wouldn’t heal; he was an avid believer that our thoughts create our reality.

After those six months he started working out again, moderately at first, and resumed teaching afterwards.

And even though his back would remain a source of pain throughout his entire life, you wouldn’t think it to see the man blazing faster in his movies than any able-bodied person.

3) His greatest achievement came from a less than perfect victory. Bruce Lee’s greatest contribution to the martial arts world was his philosophy and martial system of Jeet Kune Do. But he didn’t make up this martial art from thin air.

In fact, the catalyst that gave birth to one of the most efficient martial arts in the world came from a less than efficient fight.

In the 1960s, Bruce Lee was challenged for daring to reveal the secrets of Chinese martial arts to non-Chinese. He won the fight, but found himself unusually winded afterwards, and was disturbed in thinking back that even though he could have ended it in one, the fight had taken three minutes instead.

Before that time, Bruce had been content with modifying the traditional martial art of Wing Chun. But because of that less-than-perfect experience, he pursued more sophisticated training methods and rigourously dissected the martial arts for the very best that he could find, and in time his own profound and deadly expression of the martial arts was born.

4) He had his opportunities stolen from him. Did Bruce have it easy from the get-go, especially with someone that had such astounding skills you’d think Hollywood would have been banging down his door to sign him on?

Hardly.

After the cancellation of The Green Hornet series, Bruce couldn’t find much more television work. In 1969, a movie project called The Silent Flute, which he had put in massive effort and pinned high hopes on, fell through.

With his back still hurting, and financial disaster on the horizon, his wife Linda had to work, while Bruce stayed at home to watch the kids and rest his back.

During that time, Warner Brothers contacted him with what looked like a glimmer of hope; they wanted his help to develop a TV series based on the martial arts. He was deeply involved and gave them numerous ideas…many of which were used in the ensuring TV series Kung Fu, starring not Bruce Lee, but David Carradine.

Later on, Warner Brothers admitted that despite his heavy involvement, they had never even considered him for the role.

Ironically, this was the final straw that pushed Bruce to accept an offer by a Hong Kong film producer named Raymond Chow to make the movie that would propel him into superstardom; The Big Boss.

Bruce turned setback into success, when he met Raymond for the very first time Bruce told him; ‘You just wait, I’m going to be the biggest Chinese star in the world.’

5) He practiced incessantly. What do you think was the price of his eye-popping feats and unbeatable athletism? Exercising two times a week and a bottle of beer in front of the TV after?

Bruce Lee trained religiously every single day, there are training records that suggest he practiced kicks…upward to a thousand times a day!

6) He was an avid reader. He had a vast library of books and loved scouring the bookshops for more. He not only had a appetite for books on martial arts, but he also devoured books on the personal growth writers of his day, pioneers like Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Peale and Clement Stone.

He believed in personal development so much so he once penned down this prophetic personal affirmation in 1969, 2 years before his first hit movie The Big Boss:

I, Bruce Lee, will be the highest paid Oriental superstar in the United States. In return, I will give the most exciting performances and render the best quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting in 1970, I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1989 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. Then I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

So What Was The Key To Bruce Lee’s Amazing Success?

At the beginning of this article, I asked you the question: what if you already had the same potential for greatness as Bruce Lee (in anything, not just martial arts) locked within you, how would you unlock it?

Who better to answer you than Bruce Lee himself?

Dedication, absolute dedication, is what keeps one ahead-a sort of indomitable obsessive dedication and the realization that there is no end or limit to this because life is simply an ever-growing process, an ever-renewing process.

Thank you, Bruce.

To end; let me share with you my all-time favorite Bruce Lee quote that says it all:

Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function of and duty of a quality human is the sincere and honest development of one’s potential.

I have come to discover through earnest personal experience and dedicated learning that ultimately the greatest help is self-help-doing one’s best, dedicating one’s self wholeheartedly to a given task, which happens to have no end but is an on-going process.

Facts About Bruce Lee

FACT: Bruce Lee injured his back causing damage to his sacral nerve in 1970. The injury was due to overtraining and lifting too heavy during “Good Mornings”, a weight training exercise, not during a fight as many people believe. Although doctors told him he would not be able to continue his lifestyle in the martial arts, through determination he fully recovered and went on to star in four and a half films made between 1971 and 1973.

FACT: Did you know that Bruce Lee used the focus glove for martial arts training as far back as 1962? In fact, it was Bruce Lee who popularized its use in the martial arts. Focus gloves are now used by almost every martial artist in the United States.

FACT: Bruce Lee trained on a 300 lb. heavy bag to improve his kicking power.

FACT: Bruce Lee was far from being genetically perfect, as most people believe. Bruce Lee wore contact lenses and actually failed his physical exam in 1963 and was deemed physically unacceptable by the U.S. Army Draft Board.

FACT: Bruce Lee was introduced to the football shield for kicking by student Dan Inosanto. At first, he rejected the idea, but within a few days he had developed a series of drills and the kicking shield became a mainstay of Jun Fan Gun Fu Jeet Kune Do training. Today there is a shield in almost every martial arts school in the USA.

FACT: Bruce Lee was one of the first Chinese Gung Fu teachers in the United States to teach non-chinese. Si-gung Lee did not allow racial discrimination to enter into his choice of who he wanted to teach. He chose to see people as individuals, and regardless of what the chinese community at that time wanted he stood his ground, even though he was challenged to fight as an ultimatum to stop teaching people other than those of chinese decent.

FACT:Although Bruce Lee started his acting career at age 6 and was known worldwide as an actor, he considered himself a martial artist first and an actor second.

FACT: Bruce was so fast, he once broke five boards with a speed break on Hong Kong TV, as they were held stacked dangling between his assistant’s thumb and forefinger

Bruce Lee Said : “If I should die tomorrow,” he used to say, “I will have no regrets. I did what I wanted to do. You can’t expect more from life.”

Bruce Lee. The very name conjures images of lightning-fast punches, rock-hard muscles, whirlwind footwork and a blazing intensity that demands attention.

If you’ve only known The Little Dragon from his movies, you’ve been missing out. Catch rare footage from his first American screen test, his demonstration at the International Karate Championships of 1964, of 2-finger push-ups (yes, doing push ups on 2 fingers), his infamous one-inch punch, and sparring sessions that, to me, make his movie fighting look slow

The Mystery of Bruce Lee’s Death

By: Jake Seal

Bruce Lee, dressed in the traditional Chinese outfit he wore in the movie Enter The Dragon, was laid to rest in Lakeview Cemetery in Seattle in late July of 1973. But long before Lee’s sudden and tragic death in a Hong Kong apartment at age 32, rumors were rife throughout the Orient that he had been wounded or killed in fights.

“One day, I got a long-distance call from Hong Kong’s largest newspaper,” Lee recalled. “They asked me if I was still alive. ‘Guess who you are talking to?’ I replied.”

Thus, when Lee actually did die, speculation abounded as to the cause. The rumors ranged from Lee being killed by Hong Kong triads (gangsters) because he refused to pay them protection money - �something that was common for Chinese movie stars to do at that time �to his being killed by an angry martial artist’s dim mak (death touch) strike. Some people claimed Lee was cursed�he had just bought a house in Hong Kong that was supposed to be haunted�or that he had died while mking love to actress Betty Tingpei, or that he had angered the Chinese martial arts community by teaching foreigners, and that he had been killed in a challenge match.

Many Chinese believed Lee was the victim of too much gum Ilk (intensity) in his training, while others cited drug use as the cause for his sudden demise. Still others believed that Lee’s fate was sealed at birth, that it was in the stars. And, finally, there are those who think Lee’s death was staged, and that he is merely waiting for the right time to return to society.

The facts of the case are this: Lee died after falling into a coma. The coroner’s report was inconclusive, and medical authorities came up with five reasons for Lee’s untimely death. However, they all agreed that it was caused by a cerebral edema (a swelling of the brain caused by a congestion of fluid). But what caused the edema became a matter of speculation. For the most part, the course of events on that fateful July day in 1973 can be pieced together. According to Lee’s wife, Linda, Bruce met film producer Raymond Chow at 2 p.m. at home to discuss the making of Game of Death. They worked until 4 p.m., and then drove together to the home of Betty Tingpei, a Taiwanese actress who was to also have a leading role in the film. The three went over the script at Tingpei’s home, and then Chow left to attend a dinner meeting.

A short time later, Lee complained of a headache and Tingpei gave him a tablet of Equagesic�a kind of super sapirin. Apart from that, Lee reportedly consumed nothing but a couple of soft drinks.

At around 7:30 p.m., Lee lay down for a nap and was still asleep when Chow called to ask why he and Tingpei had not yet shown up for dinner as planned. The actress told Chow she could not wake Lee. The ensuing autopsy found traces of cannabis in Lee’s stomach, but the significance of this discovery is debatable. Some believe the cannabis caused a chemical reaction that led to the cerebral edema, but the coroner’s inquiry refutes this theory. In fact, one doctor was quoted as saying that the cannabis being in Lee’s stomach was “no more significant than if Bruce had drunk a cup of tea that day.”

Dr. R.R. Lycette of Queen Elizabeth Hospital viewed Lee’s death as a hypersensitivity to one or more of the compounds found in the headache tablet he consumed that afternoon. Although his skull showed no injury, his brain had swollen considerably, from 1,400 to 1,575 grams. None of the blood vessels were blocked or broken, so the possibility of a hemorrhage was ruled out. All of Lee’s internal organs were meticulously examined, and the only “foreign” substance to be found was the Equagesic.

Chow came to the apartment and could not wake Lee either. A doctor was summoned, and he spent 10 minutes attempting to revive the martial artist before sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. By the time he reached the hospital, Lee was dead .

Foul play was immediately suspected as having a role in Lee’s passing. Chow appeared on television to try to settle the public furor that quickly developed. He explained what happened, omitting only the fact that Lee had not died at home. The press soon uncovered the truth, however, and demanded to know what Chow was trying to cover up. R.D. Teare, a professor of forensic medicine at the University of London who had overseen more than 90,000 autopsies, was called in and declared that it was basically impossible for the cannabis to be a factor in Lee’s death. In Teare’s opinion, the edema was caused by hypersensitivity to either meprobamate or aspirin, or a combination of both. His view was accepted by authorities, and a determination of “misadventure” was stamped on Lee’s death.

Strangely, an early death was a conceivability that Lee had contemplated with surprising frequency. According to his wife Linda, he had no wish to live to a ripe old age because he could not stand the idea of losing the physical abilities he had strived so hard to achieve.

Now he's a born- again Christian and married with a child. lost my virginity to a guy I used to hang out with — to se what it was like — but that did absolutely nothing for me. .... He invited me over to watch a movie. nine months I HAD MOVED from Minneapolis to Wisconsin, where I went to school, and met David online. 25 Jul 2016 The story has a happy-ish ending, though.
