    Isn't Larry Hartsell supposed to be the authority on JKD Grappling?

    Yeah, I think it's Han Jae Ji.

    My Uncle Bob was a multi system bb under Wally and Bruce would give demos at their Judo team's tournament fund raising luaus. Bob said Bruce was amazing and once a 250 lb Judoka challenged Bruce's one inch punch. The guy flew back and got up bowing, "Arigato sensei."

    Re: Bruce Lee - Where did he get his grappling?

    Hi all, sorry if this is re-post material. I just recently met and talked at length with an ex-Army Ranger (Us Army). He was in service during the time when special forces were moving away from judo ground tech's and onto Gracie/BJJ techniques (late 80's early 90's?). In fact, he said Rorian and Royce were training them pretty regularly in the beginning. Interestingly enough, he said they pretty much train Muay Thai stand up now, but used to train ninjutsu standup fighting.

    Anyway, he mentioned that Bruce Lee had learned some (if not all) of his grappling from the Gracie's, and I thought he implied directly from them (ie, Helio Gracie). Is this Bullshido material? Can anyone substantiate this?

    Thanks in advance for the replies.

    PS- I am not a Gracie or Bruce Lee nut hugger.
    Rangers huh? I've heard of them. :D

    It was the mid to late 90's when Regiment went to bjj. When I got to 3rd Batt in 98 we were doing a little of bjj. Supposedly Royce had a friend somewhere in 3rd Batt or Regimental hq.

    Bruce trained with Prof. Wally Jay in the early 1960's because he saw the value of Prof. Jay's broad back ground in the fighting arts.This fact is in Prof. Jay's biogaphy at the beging of hs book Small Circle Jujitsu

    Bruce Lee had his ass kicked several times in real fights. For example, Gene Le Bell(a wrestler and judo guy) beat Bruce Lee druing training and made him tap out like a beotch several times.

    Bruce Lee got beat up by Wong Jack Man. A totally unknown guy off the street named Jack Man put Bruce in the hospital.

    Bruce Lee also got a back injury fighitng a muay thai person.

    Actually Bruce did fight with Gene but I dont know if it was a serious fight per say. That where Bruce learnt his wrestling from.

    As for the Muay Thai person. Was this the fight he had during filming The Big Boss in Thailand?
