        Cool pictures, good questions. I hope our BL fans and JKD instructors may recognize some of these.

        Thanks for sharing.

          some more

          YouTube - BRUCE LEE - 3 MINUTES OF RARE FOOTAGES At the 3 minute mark you can see a few seconds of Lee in the same spot as some of the photos above until he gets interrupted by his son Brandon running over to play! I think it was Linda who was filming






          Just in case you want to see the other pictures in the series, etc...i found them here:

              Nobody knows what these stances are from? Perhaps it would be a good idea to ask guys who practice traditional kung fu for further info. It's risky though, as it seems alot of kung fu guys go crazy whenever you mention Bruce Lee!

              Anyways, I have done some research on what forms Bruce Lee knew, here is what I came up with:

              1. Chin Woo Association
              -Tan Tui
              -Gong Li Quan
              -Jie Quan (Jeet Kune)

              2. Bung Bo Kuen (Northern Mantis)
              3. Sarn Bo Jin (Three step arrow) -Southern Mantis
              4. Tiger & Crane Form (Hung Ga)
              5. Yang Tai Chi 108 Form
              6. Ip Man Wing Chun
              -Sil Lum Tao
              -Chum Kiu
              -Biu Jee

              If anybody knows these forms, do any of the above pics look to come from them? And if I'm missing any, let me know.

                  I'm not as familiar with BL and his teachers as you seem to be. I hardly consider myself a kung fu guy or even a "FAN" of the legend himself but I know that the little dragon went to great lengths to separate himself from TRADITIONAL Kung Fu.

                  I'd almost be surprised if these forms and photos of "stances" were not his own version of some traditional crane and mantis styles. The finger pose sort of gives it away? or not...

                    Looks like Kuntao or Silat to me? Few styles advocate or endorse crossing your feet in retreat or to change direction.

                    Just a humble observation...

                      From the little I know of Choy Lay Fut, their spinning backfist would take on this appearance as they twist completely around to make the shot. Plus the drawn-in arrows added by Lee further make me think this is a spinning backfist move.

                      And as far as it looking like Kuntao or Silat, it might take on that appearance but Lee would never have heard of the Filipino arts until Inosanto and of the Indonesian arts until Donn Draeger's books in late 60s and early 70s. This particular picture is circa 1957-1959 before he left Hong Kong for the USA.
                      Thanks for the input!
