Jeet Kune Do, the Art of Bruce Lee

The Hong Kong Bruce Lee house is gone.

Bruce Lee called the mansion The Crane’s Nest.

 

I read about this in a FB post from FB friend John Little. I realized I knew very little about this story so I thought I would write about it here.

Bruce and his family lived in this house on 41 Cumberland Road from 72 to 73 while working on “The Way of the Dragon,” “The Game of Death” and “Enter the Dragon.”

Bruce died in Hong Kong on July 20, 1973.

Yu Pang-lin a Chinese businessman,  bought the house in 1974, after that the house was modified to be more private as it was  used as a “ bordel”,  I did not know that.

What the new owner did with the house has not much to do  with Bruce I would I say, but the thing is, this is Bruce Lee we are talking about,  he spent his last years in this house with his family , it should mean something.

I think that this house could have been used for something far more dignified and if not as a tribute or museum as it was planned in 2008 , it should have been something better that this degrading place for dirty men ( excuse my French ! )

Anyways, Yu had planned to sell it in 2008, but thanks to fans protesting , he did not do it at the time.

In 2018 his grandson announced he  was  planning on renovations to make the house a Chinese Study center but experts found the state of the house “extremely bad” and that it would be dangerous for students.

Because of the extensive damages the cost of the renovation would exceed  building a whole new one,  this is why the decision was taken.

Bottom line and my opinion, had it been preserved the right way from the beginning, this would not have happenned, too bad the house was sold to someone who obviously did not care at all.

 

This is before the demolition:

Happy Chinese New Year

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 .

Annie

I was just informed about the passing of Annie Joe , I was not aware she was sick and I definetely did not expect this to happen this year.

I wrote not a long time ago how energetic and full of life she was, but  I understand that losing your life partner especially at that age is a factor.

I am deeply saddenned I had hoped to meet her again , this comes as a sad news and a sad beginning of the year .

Annie,

you brought joy in every people who ever met you and I will miss you very much

Rest in peace together with your love , we will always have you both in our hearts
