Hello everyone! We've been experimenting with a bit of a podcast for our Biographics channel (a few people were asking for audio versions so they can get Biographics while doing other things)! Fair warning: none of these are new biographies, but rather me having a bit more of a free form chat around the script. I'd love to know what you think, if these are useful, wanted etc :). Thanks, Simon.

You do realize that there are little girls today 12 and up to 16 that could destroy Bruce in a real life? Also Bruce Lee was apparently never in a real fight. My daughter to could do the three inch punch at 10.
As I have a problem believing anything so incredible, I'm wondering if there is any kind of hard proof for anything that is stated here. Hear say and a few Hollywood movies are clearly not proof and testimonies from family and close friends is not what anybody would consider irrefutable proof. I wish all this is true though, I really want a world where 'magic' is real...
Enormously many in the past , born , lived and left leaving a piece of memory , where as Bruce Lee 1ly , appeared , lived outstandingly
and left , by leaving his existential
force nature in memory of time even beyond millennium ?
I am not surprised that he was told to slow down, this has happened again when Jackie Chan faced off against Jet Lee. The director had to keep telling the actors to slow down, and even then they still had to slow the footage down a lot, but when you watch the seen you are blown away by the speed....imagine if they hadn't slowed everyone and everything down. Another note: Jackie Chan frequently was a stunt man for Bruce Lee......just saying...
I do not believe that as i am a woman and a scientist, im better then him. he is a pathetic person with low self esteem and short lived. what doesnt kill me make me stronger , he die so easily. weak. he just an actor. bruce lee sucks.
Ventsislav Stefanov Nah what video ?
U don’t seem to understand what elite level fighters are lol , one things for sure Bruce was not one .. he was a great thinker , great actor and a hard worker for sure tho.. all u have is “what if’s”
Ventsislav Stefanov he struggled against his limited novice level sparring partners , he did not challenge himself he never went against elite competition point blank fact.. don’t let ur love for a person blind u
+victor martinez I guess that's a matter of perspective. For me personally I wouldn't want to see footage of him beating someone in the ring or hospitalize someone in a street fight to prove that he's a superior fighter. People with such skill and power can do some serious irreversible damage, so trust me you don't want to test that.
Keep in mind that a true 'Master' martial artist is not just made of the physical, but the spiritual as well. So though Bruce was disciplined and trained like no other, that alone would not get him to the level he was at. He was most likely also gifted and born with an edge, but he most likely also had some power from the spirit side.
To clarify number 3: They had to increase the film speed for ALL his fight scenes. Regular film speed is 24 frames per second. At that speed his arms and legs would disappear and reappear so they had to increase the film speed. No other martial arts film star is anywhere close to that fast.
Yeah I don't believe most of these. Lee was a businessman/physical fitness guru(with multiple medical problems) who knew how to work the media and crowds. I'm not saying he wasn't great at physical fitness, but he's not going to hold his own in an MMA match. And the 1" punch is not what you think. Look at how the person being punched is standing. Physics. And he couldn't be punched? Weird considering there's a mock sparring match video of him proving his lack of real time ability.
Bruce Lee is Legend. No one contests that. And he inspired Chuck Norris.
But Chuck Norris lived much longer, made many many many more films, and Chuck Norris jokes are wayyy funnier......
In short, both have their place in history and legend.
Bruce Lee! My HERO and Mentor. What a MAN and what a HUMAN BEING! Super HUMAN! Yes! Super Fast.Absolutely. Unbelievably STRONG! Most definitely. A Master at Fighting Tactics!
