If you liked the writing in this video, you should click over t the author's new youtube channel, Fact Fiend: https://goo.gl/FmIHRC. Karl Smallwood one of our most popular writers is now producing his own videos. He is British, kinda like our narrator, but a bit different. Go see what I mean.
Bruce lee had major back problems because of his intense work out.also the real reason he died was of all the injections he took for for the pain that’s why Bruce looked so orange in enter the dragon and also Bruce lee died in his side chicks house and they covered it up lol long story Bruce was just a man like any other
Facts are with evidence, not of a verbal testimony because most of the
time there is an exaggeration in a testimony that could ruin a fact. So
if ever Bruce did all that amazing things leaving no trace of evidence,
then that was not consider as fact. It was just a legend or else fantasy.
I remember all those ads in the back of magazine's when I was kid of Charles Atlas and his perfect
physique through his technique called "Dynamic Tension". Bruce had the most physically and
impressively conditioned body ever though.
All nonsense lol. I've seen people do one finger one hand pushups and one hand pullups and over the bars.all of them were small guys. One inch punch wasn't one inch, he used fingertips and then made a fist(depends on size if hand). He has no real fight record. Everytime you say "there are stories of..." it becomes worthless as alot of time the corroboration is from pupils if his. The frames per second is complete nonsense, everyone knows that if you slow film record then speed up film it makes movements faster(timelapse). All the real videos of him kicking, he doesnt have much power. All the "demos" of him are just that, demonstrations lol. It's an act. Chuck Norris even said that if they fought, he(chuck) was a real fighter. Meaning bruce was an actor and would have got whooped.
1” punch is standard in higher grades in Yip Man lineage schools which are affiliated with Ving Tsun Athletics Association in HK. It takes a while to be able to learn, but it is just physics. 1 finger pushups just take practice. As for the rest...unreal!
I love Bruce Lee but he uses balance more than power. He slightly pushes the target back right before the punch. That slightly unbalances the target. Then, with just a bit more force, the target has lost all balance and falls back. If the power was as great as assumed, his targets would have broken ribs, punctures lungs and/or heart attacks. I can the heaviest semi truck and first put it on a cliff where it is barely balancing and tap it with one finger and the truck will plummet off the cliff. He was awesome but he was also a showman. His reflexes and hand-eye coordination were insanely quick... superhuman. And I know, if someone was firmly standing/balanced or even leaning slightly towards Lee, his 1 or t inch punch may hurt but wouldn’t push the target back as much as in these clips.
I’ll debunk every single one:
10. What about it? Dragon flag is done by a ton of people.
9. How do you this isn’t just another Bruce Lee myth?
8. No.. He couldn’t even get a 50 kg. Heavy bag flying in the air. Watch his training videos. He wasn’t that powerful.
7. A lot of people Can do this is as well.
6. Bruce didn’t invent the One inch punch nor is he the only one who could do it.
5. If Bruce fought a Pro boxer he’d be dead.. Bruce, not the boxer. Please compare Bruce training videos to Those of Mike Tyson.
4. Again.. how do we know this isn’t just another fanboy myth.
3. Bruce was too fast for the cameras. This is because Frame rate and shutter speed were much slower back then. In reality He wasn’t faster than a pro fighter.
2. Unless the guy had really weak bones or people confuse a Hook with a slap, then this is a myth.
1. Scott Adkind kicks are more powerful. Again, watch Bruce’s training videos.
I love Bruce, but respect him for what He was.. not something He wasn’t.
Mr. Lee was an extraordinary figure and Martial arts owes a lot to him bringing it to light when he played in the TV series "The Green Hornet". As did George Reeves did in the TV series
I for one wanted to be superhuman like they were.
If you want to see real fighting watch
"Benny The Jet"
He fought world wide and not for TV. There are many videos of all his fights. He retaired "Undefeated".
In fact the best Bruce Lee fight scene was against "Benny The Jet"
Of course being a Bruce Lee movie he won the fight by killing his opponent.
Did you ever stop to wonder why there are no real fight videos of Bruce Lee fighting? I have only found one.
Of the many schools he had who are the great students he produce? Danny Inosantos was already a Black Belt with a great foundation when he and Bruce Lee met. I don't mean any disrespcts after all Bruce Lee is a legend, whats more he devoted his life to being the best he could be which was awesome!
No one can take that away from him. I too am amazed by Bruce Lee, just as I am amazed by David Copperfield.
When master Bruce Lee die he has five weak points, the ultime limit is when a grandmaster of kungfu has only one point.If you have only one weak point you will be almost imposible to be beat, but those secrets are imposible to get.
I believe every thing in this video but it pisses me off that the video dude didnt show an actual video of Bruce Lee performing any of these acts he is describing...a bunch if still shots really? Your dumb...
