This entry is a short tribute to the martial arts master and creator of jeet kun do, Bruce Lee. He revolutionized the world of martial arts by being one of the first asians to teach to american students, as well as becoming one of the greatest kung fu masters to date.
Here is Bruce Lee fighting Kareem Abdul Jabbar during the filming of The Game of Death.
Bruce Lee started his acting career in such movies as Golden Gate Girl, The Beginning of a Boy, The Birth of Mankind, and My Son, Ah Cheun. He later went on to star in five major martial arts films: Fists of Fury, The Chinese Connection, Enter the Dragon, Return of the Dragon, and The Game of Death, which he died during the filming of. He also starred in the television program The Green Hornet, and was scheduled to do another show called Longstreet around the time of his death due to cerebral edema (swelling of the brain). Doctors declared the death of Bruce Lee as "death by misadventure."
