    This is amazing.

    I can't believe we just caught an echo from 2006.

    I hope Balrog keeps his promise and comes back every year.

    Which is funny cause Der is not mean. He is a Buddhist Monk for Cthulhu's sake. He is one of the nicest men i have communicated with.

    I don't know, it has been ages.
    We should definitely do some direct mailing or advertising in Black Belt Mag.

    Is he still a monk? I thought that was a passing phase.

    He's teaching Jeet Kune Do in Maryland.

Electronically, of course.

    Any advice you get on this board.....well, you might as well go talk to one of the monkeys in the zoo.

    See ya next year.
    You just couldn't let Bullshido go could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You won't kill Bullshido out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness, and Bullshido won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and Bullshido are destined to do this forever.

    I'm going to make a deductive leap here, but the biggest controversies in Bruce Lee's history tie back to the 1967 Ed Parker tournament where Lee and Vic Moore "sparred" and speed tested each other. There has been a rift between Lee and Moore students ever since (in fact, this year is the 50th anniversary of the feud).

    This is of course the background for the climactic bullshit in "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story"...I think in that movie, Vic Moore gets replaced by the kung fu dude, who Bruce Lee defeats, proving to the world his Jeet Kune Do is the shizzit. The whole affair with Moore was essentially whitewashed and replaced with Gong Sau to the Death (part deux), I believe in order to distance the mythical Lee from the warts-and-all Lee.

    Nah, dude. I think the Johnny Sun fight in "Dragon" was supposed to be the Wong Jack Man fight. In the movie and in real life, it was about Chinese people being pissed that Bruce Lee was teaching Kung Fu to non-Chinese. In the movie, Bruce got his back injury from the fight, but in real life the drama came from the fact that it took Bruce a really long time to beat him up with Wing Chun. After that, he got into the whole JKD thing.

    Wasn't there a write up on Fightland where they dispelled that bullshit myth about the CMA people out of San Francisco being pissed about Bruce Lee (One Inch Punches Be Upon Him) teaching the white devil the Lord's Gong Fu? With pictures of those same CMA people training white people at least as far back as when Lee first left Hong Kong for the US? IIRC the feud was actually because Bruce Lee (OIPBUH) was actually a complete **** and constantly throwing challenges around and disrespecting the CMA guys in SF.

    Which fits, sort of, with why that opium head Yip Man "stopped" training him. Allegedly (according to William Cheung) he was kicking all the senior student instructors asses and they pressured Yip Man to ban him or they would take away his stipend and he wouldn't be able to buy dope anymore.

    California seems to be the place to be if you want to be a martial art myth with not much substance that goes world wide.

    The first Johnny Sun fight was supposed to represent the beef with Wong Jack Man, and the second fight was at Ed Parker's tournament...which would represent Vic Moore vs Bruce Lee.

    They basically took several of Bruce Lee's "fights" and other notoriety and turned it into a recurring character (and his brother). I think that might have been done to remove controversy from the movie...rather than dredge up Bruce's real life beefs, they got creative and made a kung fu master (at least it made the movie more interesting).

    The whole back/traction thing was bullshit, in real life Lee injured himself doing this barbell exercise:

    He is not nice, he is foul little demon from hell who tempts perfectly respectable English ex-pats into nights of drunken debauchery and then complains when you cock-block him with the slutty barmaid
