Be water…my friend!

Bruce Lee

Today is Bruce Lee’s birth day. He was born on November 27th, 1940. Yes, he was/is one of my life heroes. I wrote of him awhile back. Crafting Your Own Style, referring to his style or “flow of movement”!

His philosophy of life as it relates to the discipline of martial arts is indisputable, as was his skill. The following clip, very short (30 seconds), is indicative of this life philosophy. That is Bruce Lee speaking! It’s also worth a quick listen to!


Thanks you for stopping by today, and do go with the flow!

  1. What a wonderful and inspiring post. The grandmaster of Martial Arts. And the only person to have beaten Chuck Norris. Definitely makes him worth listening to. In all seriousness, he had some brains and it is a shame he went too soon.

    • He used Hollywood to make money and as a means to advance people’s awareness of martial arts. Also his dad was a professional performer (opera) and Bruce (his mom called him that – it means “strong”, when he was little) started acting as a child, partially a way of life for him. His main focus as he studied and perfected his style re”martial arts” was to teach. He was also very human and subject to many of the same needs and desires we all have. But in the final analysis he was far more than the movie personality that people associate with him Alastair, I have studied this individuals history quite a bit!
