Bruce Lee would have turned 79 today .
There are always some discussions about who knows better or more about him but I think that no matter what, Bruce Lee is a name you cannot forget, so let be those who only know the actor and still adore him for that.
The most important is that he is not forgotten, remember that we are 46 years after his death!
He left a mark on different kind of people , those who know the most about his art or the man that he was in life and those who know most about his movies and his appearances on screen.
I am part of the JKD world and very happy for it, but I started as a Bruce Lee- the actor fan and most of my family and friends from France only know him for that.
Bruce Lee was more than one man, he was also an actor and he worked very hard to get there and be recognized for it.
I do not judge people not knowing about JKD, I am always happy when someone asks me what kind of martial art I do and when I answer JKD, most don´t know what it is but as soon as I say “ the art of Bruce Lee” all people, and I mean ALL people , younger or older respond : ” OH wow !”. That does not only make me proud of what I do, that makes me happy that people still know and still are impressed by Bruce 🙂
I really hope there will be an event next year for the 80th birthday in San Francisco, we were there 9 years ago for the 70th, I would love to go back 🙂 I miss SF and this time I hope at least one word comes out of my mouth if I get the chance to meet Linda again 🙂
