    Just curious..has anyone here actually read The Tao Of Jeet Kune Do ?
    Bruce Lee was mainly responsible for the mass explosion of MA pop culture, not responsible for aiding in the progression of martial arts.
    However, I remember reading his book years ago and he did advocate the mixing of various MA styles in it.
    That book was published in 1973, edited by various people and dedicated to ' The Free, Creative Martial Artist ' by Linda Lee - keeping with the spirit of the book.
    .
    The martial arts renaissance that we have been going through in the past 15 or so years was initiated by the FIGHTERS that stepped up to test themselves against other world class FIGHTERS. After Royce mopped up the place, FIGHTERS everywhere rushed to catch up with the Gracies, and thus the rennaisance began. I give credit to the FIGHTERS that FOUGHT against each other in FIGHTING tournaments. It is an insult to those FIGHTERS to say that without Bruce Lee, there would be no UFC.
    I get your point..and I understand your annoyance.
    And the Gracies are infinitely more important the sport of MMA than Bruce Lee.
    I started a thread on this very topic years ago...more to delve into the history of style vs style matchups than anything else.

    Yes.

    We will disagree on this part. Contrary to erroneous belief that racism stopped when desegregation started, he taught marginalized people who were excluded from both American and Asian Dojos. He also advocated cross-training, during a time period when it was a no no, which I would call martial arts progression. No, not to the extent of being called the MMA creator or other hyped bullshit, but people have a tendency to give him more credit than he deserves or not enough.

    I figure this clip will be referenced a lot:



    With that said, James Cagney and Frank Sinatra are the real godfathers of MMA:

    Without getting involved in the Bruce Lee thing (being a JKD'er and pseudo nuthugger) I would venture Gene Lebell had far more of an input into the MMA landscape after the Milo Savage debacle and arguable guys such as Inoki who "worked" against all manner of opponents (Karateka, Judoka and *shudder* the Ali match)

    Just think of what they'll credit Gina Corano with in 50 years... aside from an amazing fucking ass.
