I saw this movie twice and it’s amazing to think about the fight that occurred between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man.
In Bruce Lee’s books it talks about how Bruce was upset that it took him three minutes to defeat his opponent with his wing chun style. But would time really be that much of a motivator to change Bruce Lee’s life around? He’d fought many people before.
Could it be that Wong Jack Man won the fight? Or even more interesting, could Wong Jack Man have inspired Bruce Lee to overcome his limitations? Bruce Lee was all about technique before he created JKD.
I can’t stop thinking about this. I think it’s because I am fascinated with these moments of epiphany.
As an Aikidoist, I know that Morihei Ueshiba had a similar revelation where he also experienced a moment of enlightenment that changed his whole perspective to create a peaceful martial art.
New Update As of September 28, 2017
I now realize why people are upset at the production of this movie after understanding how Bruce Lee made movies and what he tried to convey. How they depicted Bruce Lee didn’t represent who he was at all.
