Chuck not only studied Okinawain Karate he is alos a practicioner of Tang Soo Do from Korea and I think 2 other art forms I do not recall...
Tang Soo Do, Karate, TaeKwonDo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I just don't know whether he did all this before he met Bruce Lee, or if he was influenced by Bruce to take multiple arts.

As for the reason Bruce died from that drug it iwas not a substance he was used to using and he had a reaction to some drugs they gave him in the hospital to help. It was the right drug to help him if he were not Asian. THe drug used was known to cause severe allergic reactions to people of asian genetics some like 75% of the time and they never tested bruce to see if there would be a reaction.
And, I don't think what you said is right. I've read in multiple places that that was just a cover so Bruce wouldn't look like a drug addict and his fans won't be disappointed or influenced.
Heat Gun Vaporizer
Here's one site I just found 15 minutes ago. Not sure how reliable it is, but this is the same info I've heard from many other sources.

As for Bruce being the first to use multiple styles. Thats been happening for generations before Bruce. Bruce as said was just the 1st to openly say it and do it was a high level of success.
Yeah, exactly.

Okay back to the original post.
I don't think there is much less drug use in Traditional Ma Verus MMA.But I don't agree with the Idea of the being no sense of reponsability in MMA,ppl are ppl and will do what they so,the sport isn't to blame.Just peoples bad choices to cheating and cheating happens in all sports.Also most ppl Dedicated to MMA have a sense of Dutie because thats what it takes to be an MMA fighter.

Now as far as MMA Vs. Traditional ma,we can all agree that MMA Fighters will by far almost always be Purist of just one style,unless you get the "lucky shot" chances are a MMA fighter just beats a purist fighter anyday.Unless the MMA fighter is just a mix of all striking or all grappling styles then the playing feild is more even.

It might be a matter of discretion (SP?) basicly people in MMA may not hide it as much, and precentage wise there just might be more use, that I don't know, but then again alot of MMA fighters are ALSO Tradationalist martial artists as well or at least got thier start there..
