To all those that do not know what Bruce Lee was all about and to the others that want to know how he would do in a fight against Ali, this post is for you.  Bruce studied Ali more than any other fighter and implored Ali's footwork into the art of Jeet Kune Do--The Way of the Intercepting Fist. 

This was Bruce Lee's form of Marital Arts which is based on disabling an opponent regardless of size.  Bruce would use anything to stop a fight from going longer than 10 seconds. The video above took place several years before Bruce founded his own form of Marital Arts. Bruce did not believe in Karate competitions and referred to them as "Dry land Swimming."

He had one goal, which was to disable his opponent. When Bruce was a youngster in Hong Kong, his parents were visited by the police so often as a result of the constant street fights he would be involved in, that his parents advised him to leave Hong Kong as they knew Bruce would wind up in jail, and or kill someone.  Bruce fought everywhere and anywhere, including on roof tops in Hong Kong where there were no rules. 

Many people do not know that Bruce was the lightweight boxing champion of Hong Kong.  He also was the Cha Cha dancing champion of the same city.  After Bruce came to the U.S. and began teaching Chinese Martial Arts to Americans, the Chinese were very angry and sent their best man to fight Bruce.  The deal was that if Bruce lost he must stop teaching Chinese Martial Arts in America.  Bruce was very disturbed with the results of the fight because it took him 3 minutes to disable his opponent. Bruce wanted to do it within seconds.

Bruce was a MASTER of martial arts and even worked out with Chuck Norris for 2 years as the two had great respect for one another.  One time, Bruce and Chuck went at it in a motel hallway till dawn.  The top Martial Arts Masters in the U.S. would come to Bruce for training and I was an eyewitness to this.  I am in my late 60's now and when I was much younger, my Sensei was the student of Taky Kimura.  Google his name and you will learn that he was Bruce Lee's top student at Bruce Lee's training location which was in Seattle Washington.  I was given permission to watch my Instructors training Sessions with Taky and consequentially met Bruce Lee. 

Bruce said I was welcome any time to come and watch my instructor train.  Bottom line, Bruce lee had the heart of a child, a wonderful sense of humor though he took his martial arts to a level that was beyond comprehension.  I was an eyewitness to how good he was and I have seen him train against men near 7 feet tall and 300 pounds.  Bruce was so fast that they would just shake their heads in amazement. Bruce taught that to disable a man much larger than yourself, one needs strike the vital areas with the speed of a snake. If you don't have the speed, then you need to learn to be deceptive. Bruce would practice for hours on end against large targets in kicks and punches that would immediately disable his opponent by smashing a knee cap, pulverizing a groin area, or a kick to the mid section to take the wind out of his attacker. 

The more research you perform about Bruce and when you learn the inside secrets of what this man was all about, you will not only be amazed, but you will want to learn what Bruce taught.  Bruce was part German and part Chinese.  This combination was very interesting and gave him the looks of a movie star; it also provided him with a very bad temper and anyone that knew him understood not to push buttons that would irritate him. contd.

contd. Bruce saw martial arts as the purest and most honest way of a man expressing himself. He saw it as a way of life and not as a way to win belts or start fights. As for fighting Ali, Bruce would need to stay away from Ali's jab and right cross by utilizing his amazing speed. The only way Bruce beats Ali is by landing a kick to the groin, or knee, thereby disabling him. Bruce Lee was all about disabling an opponent whether the person be 5 foot 2 or 7 foot 2.

This is why he took on Kareem Abdul Jabbar as a student and incorporated Jabbar in his final movie, "Game of Death." You will notice in the movie how Lee incorporates every possible tactic, including deception,  to be able to fight a man as huge as Jabbar.  Also, watch the fight scene between Chuck Norris and Bruce in the movie, "The Way of The Dragon." Chuck is beating Bruce, but when the music starts and Bruce begins to dance like Ali, you will see how Bruce is exposing the rigidity of conventional martial arts styles.

Once again, the more you learn about Bruce, the more you will understand that his very brief existence on this planet gave the world a freedom in Martial Arts that was light years ahead of his time.
