    in real life he probably was but documentaries say he was 5'7.. possibly in the same way that Tom Cruise is 5'8 lol

    Ahh, ummm, yeah, yeah, I did mean the counter. It totally worked for me, though, just jumped over the guys leg and bam, tomoe nage, yeah, yeah, NAILED it, yeah, it had nothing to do with the fact that when I first tried the link it seemed to be broken. Nothing to do with that at all, why even mention it? What? Don't you think I can do it? Bruce did it, I can do it. I totally did it but it was a one off cause the guy now knows what I'm going to do and my camera wasn't working at the time, I have footage of the floor though where the camera fell over, but you can HEAR me nail it, I swear that is me nailing it...

    Just to clarify, he wasn't a chunner. He believed very much in cross training.

    Ha, this video came in handy today. My Judo club is preparing for a demo at some sporting event. Obviously, because this is a demo, we have to show stuff that's flashy and not entirely practical and I ripped this off for one of my moves (my partner is doing Bruce's part in this one).

    Dude, you are the biggest fucking idiot I've seen post today.

    1) There was no MMA when Bruce was around.
    2) He'd be pretty fucking old by the time MMA rolled around.
    3) Dan Inosanto, Bruce's student, has continued what he saw as Bruce's legacy and earned a black belt in BJJ, Kru grade in Muay Thai, etc, etc, etc...do you think Bruce would have just stagnated if he had lived on?
    4) By the time of his death, Bruce had pretty much thrown Wing Chun out of his collective mix. He was training what was largely Western boxing combined with fencing concepts. The last student Bruce ranked, Ted Wong, was a boxer, who became Bruce's personal sparring partner.

    Highlight as many words as you like, you just continue showing what an ignorant douche bag you are and display said ignorance every time you feel the need to comment on something you don't have a fucking clue about.

    dude, my first comment on bruce was sarcasm.. the second was explaining it to someone who took it too seriously.

    the third.. this one, is explaining it to another douche.

    oh and just btw I was aware that Bruce had forsaken the chun but what he was doing was still far enough removed from boxing to not resemble it

    don't take it too seriously. MMAMICKEY is just annoyed past the point of ration by how many dicks are still so excited over a mythically over-hyped dead guy... all the wasted erections that could have been boning his mom.

    actually, when I think about it the only 'evidence' I have is films.

    He had a bit of a kink for leading with the power hand, like a fencer.

    I swear I read that he was coming around to the idea of using a more orthodox boxing stance, but I can't for the life of me remember where.
