Bruce Lee, international icon and the inspiration behind most people starting Martial Arts training (including myself), died 40 years ago today at just 32 years of age
Bruce Lee. November 27 1940 - July 20 1973

My inspiration also (even though I practise Karate ) and an icon of the highest order!

Brilliant - and funny and charismatic. I adored him.

Saw all the movies so damned often I knew all the words.

And took up Karate.


Tragic that he died so young, and that his son died young too.

From your location I would say you are KUGB under Andy Sherry or at least at some point!

A good entertainer but not a proper martial artist!

Yes that was rather cruel, yet rather poetic. Given the film set in which he died on, and the nature of the story concerning the film.

One of my favourite films ever.

He was certainly not up to Bruce's athletic ability and martial arts skill. Bruce's number one priority was his own style of martial arts. He did absolutely everything he could to improve his fitness and skill.

Correct
We started with the KUGB then formed our own association.

Yes.
Well, to be precise, an ingredient called Equagesic in a headache tablet that he took, caused a swelling of the brain.

My bedroom wall was covered in 'Enter the Dragon' posters in the day. IMO, almost every frame of Bruce in that movie could be a poster.

I was too young to enter the cinema through the front door but by other means I still went to see this movie every day for a week

Nobody has come close to having the same screen presence that he had in the last 40 years and I doubt that anybody ever will.

He was Chinese. I'm a bit puzzled as to why you thought he was Indian.

It might be because he was a celebrity.
