Ok we all know Bruce Lee, for pretty much creating JKD (which supposidly a mix of martial arts or some think a MMA.) In which I believe he took things here and there from each martial art to make one.

Now the clip above was showing a screen test of him (which most of you may have seen) but it also seems to show that he was a bit biased to Chinese Gung/Kung Fu.

I guess even his eyes were opened! =/

So Dmasterman, you decided to go ahead and register huh? Cool. Don't forget to review your dojo (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83).

He obviously doesn't know what he's talking about. Could you understand any of that jibberish?

A simple "I don't know" works too. =)

Several threads created in noobie town in rapid succession. All of them asking questions so stupid they make a brainless jellyfish say "this is bullshit." Troll job or some kid that skipped school and has nothing to do.

Guys, if you think someone's trolling/spamming/etc, REPORT THE POST.

Newbietown needs to be friendly up until the point where people are abusing the safety of this place.

Will do. I requested in one of the threads that you move it out of Noobietown.

I was biased towards filling my nappy with **** when I was 6 months old.

That does not mean it warrants character analysis now I am 33 - especially as I no longer do it.

Of course he would be demonstrating Kung Fu in that clip - that was what he did at that time.

What is your point?

To answer the initial post, Bruce claimed in his earlier days to teach Gung Fu (the typical, this is teh r34l Gung Fu mindset, despite doing nothing like it) and eventually later came to embrace the ideas that formed his JKD. And yes back then there was very much a heightened sense of nationalistic pride, so it is natural to say that Bruce would be biased towards things in China being better (and older!) than things coming out of Japan.
