"Jow Ga Meister?" Is that like Jagermeister?
Bruce had good solid crosstraining theory, but as good as he was, fighters in general have taken that example and run with it. He'd not be the myth if he came up today. There are certain times when things are just right, these myths are born...he was tough though.
EDIT: isn't jowgar a fungus, that grows in empty heads?:bowdown:

Wait, wait, wait I got it: The Shaolin Monks went back in time with their Chi Powerz and traveled to Ancient Greece where they found Pankration.
The thing was, these guys were t3h gh3y for not wearing whitey tighties that their mom wrote their names in marker on the back while the wrassled. (Besides, we all know Grappling in China was forbidden because the ground was filled with shards of opium smokey-thingies... and lava)
So they decided just to kill Socrates with a Chi Blast as he was enjoying some Hemlock Tea (Good for Rheumatism) and go back to Azn-Land to cultivate their Wushu Backflips S'more.
According to the temples take on things it was also to help them defend the temple against local bandits that would rob them of food and such, as well as excercise.
