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.

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.

Pedantry mode activated.
In The Karate Kid, Mr. Miyagi does NOT catch a fly with chopsticks. Daniel catches one during the scene in question, which causes Mr. Miyagi to angrily huff "You have beginner luck!" while slamming his chopsticks into a cup and storming off.
Pedantry mode satiated.
was it really necessary for the off color snide remarks after every bullet point? one or two sure i understand ... maybe its just the British accent and mono-toneish speak and spell pentameter that just took away from the whole reason i wanted to listen to this video in the first place. your jokes and "Witt" just ended up making this video come off as a farce more than praise or actual evidence that Bruce was more than human. bad show sir. bad show
I saw Bruce Lee in person In Washington DC at the Jhoon Rhee International Karate tournament in 1968. I was 10 feet away when he did a 20 minute demonstration included his one inch punch. He was unbelievable and cocky with incredible hand speed. His two finger jab too the eyes would have ended his opponent before it began. I am now 75 years young.
That is unbelievably lucky. To see him live, in his finest form is a privilege beyond anything a person, whether or not a fan of movies or martial arts could ever experience. I've been to his grave in Seattle, and I can tell you that the energy there is both incredibly peaceful and a powerful experience upon reflection. I bow to you, and bow deeply to Mr. Lee.
In Enter the Dragon he fights the boss at the end who has a claw hand.
There is one part where the boss gets up off the ground and Bruce gives him a roundhouse kick to the head. The kick is just so fast it gives me goose bumps just thinking about it
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.
