Bruce Lee (1940-1973)
Bruce Lee was an actor, martial artist, philosopher, film director, film producer, screenwriter, the founder of Jun Fun Fan Gung Fu, founder of Jeet kune do, a cultural icon, and most of all the greatest martial artist of our time. Bruce initially trained in Wing Chun Gung Fu, but later rejected the classical martial arts favoring a more scientific approach. In 1967 Bruce Lee coined the term Jeet kune do "The Way of The Intercepting Fist", also known as JKD. This was his personal expression of martial arts based on his research and philosophy. The direction and tone of his films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts action films around the world. Jeet kune do is only one of Bruce Lee's many legacies that he left the world.
