Fighting Spirit , suggests that Grace had a Chinese mother and a German father. Grace Lee said her mother was English and her father was Chinese.
In the biography Bruce Lee: Bosman subsequently abandoned his family and immigrated to California. Lee had three other Chinese names: Lee Hoi-chuen had been touring the United States for many years and performing in numerous Chinese communities there.
Within months, Hong Kong was invaded and the Lees lived for three years and eight months under Japanese occupation. She was the half-niece of Sir Robert Ho-tung ,   the Eurasian patriarch of the clan.
As such, the young Bruce Lee grew up in an affluent and privileged environment. After Lee was involved in several street fights, his parents decided that he needed to be trained in the martial arts.
Lee began training in Wing Chun when he was 16 years old under the Wing Chun teacher Yip Man in , after losing several fights with rival gang members.
In , due to poor academic performance and possibly poor conduct, he was transferred to St. In , Bruce won the Hong Kong schools boxing tournament, knocking out the previous champion in the final.
In the spring of , Lee got into another street fight, and the police were called. The police detective came and he says "Excuse me Mr.
Lee, your son is really fighting bad in school. If he gets into just one more fight I might have to put him in jail".
At the age of 18, Lee returned to the United States. After living in San Francisco for several months, he moved to Seattle in to continue his high school education, where he also worked for Ruby Chow as a live-in waiter at her restaurant.
In March , Lee enrolled at the University of Washington and studied dramatic arts, philosophy, psychology, and various other subjects.
Lee had two children with Linda: Brandon — and Shannon Lee born Lee began teaching martial arts in the United States in It was basically his approach to Wing Chun.
James Lee was twenty years senior to Bruce Lee and a well-known Chinese martial artist in the area. Together, they founded the second Jun Fan martial arts studio in Oakland.
At the invitation of Ed Parker , Lee appeared in the Long Beach International Karate Championships  and performed repetitions of two-finger push-ups using the thumb and the index finger of one hand with feet at approximately shoulder-width apart.
In the same Long Beach event he also performed the " One inch punch. His volunteer was Bob Baker of Stockton , California.
Rhee taught Lee the side kick in detail, and Lee taught Rhee the "non-telegraphic" punch. Lee took several steps back and asked if Moore was ready.
When Moore nodded in affirmation, Lee glided towards him until he was within striking range. In eight attempts, Moore failed to block any of the punches.
Lee attempted another punch, and Moore blocked it as well. Moore claims that Lee never successfully struck Moore but Moore was able to strike Lee after trying on his own.
However, when viewing the video of the demonstration, it is clear that Mohammed and especially Moore were erroneous in their claims. According to Lee, the Chinese community issued an ultimatum to him to stop teaching non-Chinese people.
When he refused to comply, he was challenged to a combat match with Wong. The arrangement was that if Lee lost, he would have to shut down his school, while if he won, he would be free to teach white people, or anyone else.
Wong and William Chen stated that the fight lasted an unusually long 20—25 minutes. Forced to defend his life, Wong nonetheless refrained from striking Lee with killing force when the opportunity presented itself because it could have earned him a prison sentence.
A couple of weeks after the bout, Lee gave an interview claiming that he had defeated an unnamed challenger, which Wong says was an obvious reference to him.
Lee did not respond to the invitation despite his reputation for violently responding to every provocation,  and there were no further public announcements by either, though Lee continued to teach white people.
Jeet Kune Do originated in Lee concluded that the fight had lasted too long and that he had failed to live up to his potential using his Wing Chun techniques.
He took the view that traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalized to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting.
Lee decided to develop a system with an emphasis on "practicality, flexibility, speed, and efficiency". He started to use different methods of training such as weight training for strength, running for endurance, stretching for flexibility, and many others which he constantly adapted, including fencing and basic boxing techniques.
Lee emphasized what he called "the style of no style". This consisted of getting rid of the formalized approach which Lee claimed was indicative of traditional styles.
Lee felt that even the system he now called Jun Fan Gung Fu was too restrictive, and it eventually evolved into a philosophy and martial art he would come to call Jeet Kune Do or the Way of the Intercepting Fist.
It is a term he would later regret, because Jeet Kune Do implied specific parameters that styles connote, whereas the idea of his martial art was to exist outside of parameters and limitations.
After his match with Wong Jack Man in , Lee changed his approach toward martial arts training. Lee felt that many martial artists of his time did not spend enough time on physical conditioning.
Lee included all elements of total fitness—muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility.
He used traditional bodybuilding techniques to build some muscle mass, though not overdone, as that could decrease speed or flexibility.
At the same time, with respect to balance, Lee maintained that mental and spiritual preparation are fundamental to the success of physical training in martial arts skills.
In Tao of Jeet Kune Do he wrote:. Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation.
JKD, ultimately is not a matter of petty techniques but of highly developed spirituality and physique.
According to Linda Lee Cadwell , soon after he moved to the United States, Lee started to take nutrition seriously and developed an interest in health foods, high-protein drinks, and vitamin and mineral supplements.
He later concluded that achieving a high-performance body was akin to maintaining the engine of a high-performance automobile.
Because of this, Lee was introduced into films at a very young age and appeared in several films as a child. Lee had his first role as a baby who was carried onto the stage in the film Golden Gate Girl.
By the time he was 18, he had appeared in twenty films. While in the United States from to , Lee abandoned thoughts of a film career in favour of pursuing martial arts.
However, a martial arts exhibition on Long Beach in eventually led to the invitation by William Dozier for an audition for a role in the pilot for "Number One Son".
The show never aired, but Lee was invited for the role of the sidekick Kato alongside the title character played by Van Williams in the TV series titled The Green Hornet.
The show lasted only one season of 26 episodes, from September to March Lee and Williams also appeared as their respective characters in three crossover episodes of Batman , another William Dozier-produced television series.
This was followed by guest appearances in three television series: Ironside , Here Come the Brides , and Blondie In the three worked on a script for a film called The Silent Flute , and went together on a location hunt to India.
The project was not realised at the time, but the film Circle of Iron , starring David Carradine , was based on the same plot.
In , producer Paul Maslansky was reported to have planned and received funding for a film based on the original script for The Silent Flute.
In , Lee appeared in four episodes of the television series Longstreet , written by Silliphant. Lee played the martial arts instructor of the title character Mike Longstreet played by James Franciscus , and important aspects of his martial arts philosophy were written into the script.
During a December 9, television interview on The Pierre Berton Show , Lee stated that both Paramount and Warner Brothers wanted him "to be in a modernized type of a thing, and that they think the Western idea is out, whereas I want to do the Western".
According to these sources, the reason Lee was not cast was in part because of his ethnicity, but more so because he had a thick accent.
If the situation were reversed, and an American star were to come to Hong Kong, and I was the man with the money, I would have my own concerns as to whether the acceptance would be there".
Producer Fred Weintraub had advised Lee to return to Hong Kong and make a feature film which he could showcase to executives in Hollywood.
Unaware that The Green Hornet had been played to success in Hong Kong and was unofficially referred to as "The Kato Show", he was surprised to be recognized on the street as the star of the show.
Lee played his first leading role in The Big Boss , which proved to be an enormous box office success across Asia and catapulted him to stardom. He soon followed up with Fist of Fury , which broke the box office records set previously by The Big Boss.
Having finished his initial two-year contract, Lee negotiated a new deal with Golden Harvest. Lee later formed his own company, Concord Production Inc.
Filming began in Hong Kong in January One month into the filming, another production company, Starseas Motion Pictures, promoted Bruce Lee as a leading actor in Fist of Unicorn , although he had merely agreed to choreograph the fight sequences in the film as a favour to his long-time friend Unicorn Chan.
Lee planned to sue the production company, but retained his friendship with Chan. Lee had shot over minutes of footage, including out-takes, for Game of Death before shooting was stopped to allow him to work on Enter the Dragon.
In a controversial move, Robert Clouse finished the film using a look-alike and archive footage of Lee from his other films with a new storyline and cast, which was released in However, the cobbled-together film contained only fifteen minutes of actual footage of Lee he had printed many unsuccessful takes  while the rest had a Lee look-alike, Kim Tai Chung , and Yuen Biao as stunt double.
The unused footage Lee had filmed was recovered 22 years later and included in the documentary Bruce Lee: Apart from Game of Death , other future film projects were planned to feature Lee at the time.
However, at the time, Lee decided to direct and produce his own script for Way of the Dragon instead. The first season will contain 10 episodes.
Lee is best known as a martial artist, but he also studied drama and Asian and Western philosophy while a student at the University of Washington and throughout his life.
He was well-read and had an extensive library dominated by martial arts subjects and philosophical texts. His eclectic philosophy often mirrored his fighting beliefs, though he was quick to claim that his martial arts were solely a metaphor for such teachings.
He believed that any knowledge ultimately led to self-knowledge, and said that his chosen method of self-expression was martial arts. When asked in about his religious affiliation, he replied, "none whatsoever",  and when asked if he believed in God, he said, "To be perfectly frank, I really do not.
Aside from martial arts and philosophy, which focus on the physical aspect and self-consciousness for truths and principles,  Lee also wrote poetry that reflected his emotion and a stage in his life collectively.
His daughter Shannon Lee said, "He did write poetry; he was really the consummate artist. The mood in his poems shows the side of the man that can be compared with other poets such as Robert Frost , one of many well-known poets expressing himself with dark poetic works.
The paradox taken from the Yin and Yang symbol in martial arts was also integrated into his poetry. His martial arts and philosophy contribute a great part to his poetry.
Suffering from seizures and headaches, he was immediately rushed to Hong Kong Baptist Hospital , where doctors diagnosed cerebral edema. They were able to reduce the swelling through the administration of mannitol.
The headache and cerebral edema that occurred in his first collapse were later repeated on the day of his death. On July 20, , Lee was in Hong Kong to have dinner with actor George Lazenby , with whom he intended to make a film.
Later, Lee complained of a headache, and Ting gave him the painkiller Equagesic , which contained both aspirin and the tranquilizer meprobamate.
When Lee did not come for dinner, Chow came to the apartment, but he was unable to wake Lee up. A doctor was summoned, and spent ten minutes attempting to revive Lee before sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Lee was declared dead on arrival , at the age of The autopsy found Equagesic in his system. On October 15, , Chow stated in an interview that Lee died from an allergic reaction to the tranquilizer meprobamate, the main ingredient in Equagesic, which Chow described as an ingredient commonly used in painkillers.
These included murder involving the triads and a supposed curse on him and his family. Donald Teare , a forensic scientist, recommended by Scotland Yard , who had overseen over 1, autopsies, was assigned to the Lee case.
His conclusion was "death by misadventure" caused by an acute cerebral edema due to a reaction to compounds present in the combination medication Equagesic.
Lycette, the clinical pathologist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, reported at the coroner hearing that the death could not have been caused by cannabis.
The Last Hours of Michael Hunter theorized that Lee died of adrenal crisis brought on by the overuse of cortisone , which Lee had been taking since injuring his back in a weightlifting mishap.
In a biography, author Matthew Polly consulted with medical experts and theorized that Lee died from cerebral edema caused by over-exertion and heat stroke ; and heat stroke was not considered at the time because it was then a poorly-understood condition.
Bruce Lee personally certified only three instructors: James Yimm Lee, a close friend of Lee, certified a few students including Gary Dill, who studied Jeet Kune Do under James and received permission via a personal letter from him in to pass on his learning of Jun Fan Gung Fu to others.
Dan Inosanto continued to teach and certify select students in Jeet Kune Do for over 30 years, making it possible for thousands of martial arts practitioners to trace their training lineage back to Bruce Lee.
Prior to his death, Lee told his then only two living instructors Kimura and Inosanto James Yimm Lee had died in to dismantle his schools.
Both Taky Kimura and Dan Inosanto were allowed to teach small classes thereafter, under the guideline "keep the numbers low, but the quality high".
