Good to see that someone sees what has been addressed. When it comes to Lee, most Martial Arts enthusiasts are usually too far on the extreme ends of the spectrum when they view his influence. Either they view him as a sham or fake because he became famous through Hollywood/Hong Kong movies, or they view him as the second coming embodied who came down and set all the TMA practitioners free of their styles while completely re-inventing the combat arts as we know it. The truth is that he falls someplace in between.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
