I will assume from here on out that Mr. Lee mopped the floor with Wong, if only because that quote pissed me off. That's enough for me, as ultimately it is impossible to be certain.

good posts all
true about the EBM academy - they have successful san shou fighters and train groundfighting regularly."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."

Setting aside some of the mysticism of the article, I tend to believe it's account of the fight. Or at least an account where there was not a decisive victor and that the popular account "Linda Lee's" is constructed to play up the legend of Bruce Lee.
Perhaps the biggest reason for this is this fight's role in the development of JKD. Linda Lee cites this as a pivitol moment for Bruce Lee which caused him basically to tear down and reconstruct Jun Fan.
If here account is correct and he one decisively wouldn't that prove his existing principles? I mean, even if it took longer than planned, a decisive victory is still a decisive victory. The time elements could be solved by tweaking rather than wholesale reconstruction. However, if the fight was more or less a draw (as the second article suggests) that would better support the notion of going back to the drawing board.
This is the stuff of MA legend. I'm just curious about getting somewhere to a handle on a median story.
Let's step away from the Chi issues for a moment. Or does there presence negate any possibility of truth from the contrarian account?

I am with you Matt - except for the idea that WJM didn't use his d34dly shaolin kicks because he didn't want to injure Bruce."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."

Hearsay from Inosanto describes the fight as Lee chasing Wong for most of the time then finally catching him and throwing a few punches for the win.
After that fight, Lee started working on his conditioning because he was so winded from the pursuit.
