zodiac-pig

We are now in the year of the Pig, for those who wonder, you are a Pig if you are born the following years:

1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

I am not a firm  believer of the horoscope “science”   but I like to read the chinese horoscope  because some of the things  I read are actually happening … so that makes me want to read it every year 🙂

The Pig is the twelfth animal in the Chinese zodiac after the Dog, and before the Rat.

Mikael is a Pig and I am a Rat 🙂

Let´s see what this new year brings us and Happy New year to everyone .

location :

Fort Mason Center

The World of Bruce Lee 2016 & The Green Hornet 50th Anniversary is a Photo Exhibition ( non profit event), organized by Randy Wong

For more info , here is the Article taken from the World of Bruce Lee Facebook page :

“On the crest of his meteoric rise to world fame, Bruce Lee died mysteriously on July 20, 1973, at the age of 32, having only completed 4 films, with his 5th and final film, “Game of Death” half-finished before his untimely passing. The “World of Bruce Lee” Exhibition represents the collection of Randy Wong, and is a photographic tribute to the legendary icon.

In 1978, Randy Wong joined Norman Borine in launching the “World of Bruce Lee” museum in Los Angeles, CA, in the hopes of creating a permanent memorial to the legendary martial artist and movie star, to preserve his memory and legacy for future generations.

Borine and Wong operated the original “World of Bruce Lee” museum from 1978-1980, garnering the support of Grace Lee, Bruce Lee’s mother, Linda Lee, Bruce’s widow, and several of Lee’s closest friends and core students, Dan Inosanto, Taky Kimura, Ted Wong and Herb Jackson. During this period, Borine and Wong collaborated with Grace Lee on her family’s pictorial biography entitled “Bruce Lee, The Untold Story” (1979).

Wong contributed to the making of the A&E biography “Bruce Lee, The Immortal Dragon” (1994), and with his business partner, J.R. Goodman, both were privileged to work with Van Williams and Wende Wagner of the classic 1966 TV series, “The Green Hornet”, in which Bruce Lee portrayed Kato, the Green Hornet’s lethal crime-fighting partner.

Randy Wong also had the honor of working with Ahna Capri and Jim Kelly, both of whom co-starred with Bruce Lee in his timeless martial arts masterpiece, “Enter the Dragon”.”

JKD vs JKD concepts ?

I have never nor would I ever take part in the little war going on between us and concepts. In Martial arts what you learn from the begining is respect , I respect that other people have their own beliefs and train the way they do, this is why there are so many different styles. Now the fact that there are two different JKDs is the reason why people “fight” to claim they train the correct one and the other is wrong.

I will not extend too much on the subject  because it is not “worth my time” ( and I quote Ted  by saying that ). Why having some endless discussions and attitudes?  Just do what you do , put your energy on being the best you can be and follow your own path.

Now I will have to add that the little war is not only crossing through the two styles , within styles are also some conflicts, this is a question of power, ego and stupidity and this is a shame. I have excluded myself from some groups, discussions and FB people because of that, the most important is my training, I have no time for childish discussions and ego trips and again:  put your energy in your training instead !
