      • Fight History

        Bruce Lee engaged in a number of street fights as a teenager in Hong Kong and he won the 1958 La Salle High School Boxing Championships. The following is the most salient list of Bruce Lee's street fighting exploits after returning to the United States in 1959. Every single one of these fights were either confirmed by Bruce Lee or were witnessed by a reliable reporter or reporters.

        1) In 1960, Bruce Lee and the late Skip Ellsworth fought two opponents in a pool hall. Ellsworth was a student of Bruce Lee.

        2) In 1960, Bruce Lee and Ellsworth fought two opponents in a parking lot.

        3) In 1960, Bruce Lee and Ellsworth fought three opponents outside a movie theater.

        4) In 1961, Bruce Lee fought a Japanese challenger at a local YMCA. The fight took place on a handball court, Jesse Glover was the referee, and the late Ed Hart was the timekeeper. Bruce straight-blasted the challenger into a wall and front kicked him in the face as he was slumping to the floor. Glover and Hart were students of Bruce Lee.

        5) The late Ronald Kealoha and his friend, George Santos, witnessed Bruce knock out a challenger inside a boxing ring at the Seattle National Guard Armory. According to Kealoha, the challenger ended up in the hospital. Kealoha was a student of Bruce Lee.

        6) During a visit to Hong Kong in 1963, Doug Palmer witnessed Bruce side kick a challenger in the knee to quickly end the fight. Palmer was a student of Bruce Lee.

        7) Bruce Lee's much publicized 1964 fight with Wong Jack Man in Oakland. The late James Lee and Linda Lee were present at this fight and both of them stated that after fighting for about 3 minutes, Bruce took WJM to the floor and ended the fight.

        8) In the late 1960's, Bruce Lee toyed with a "huge truck driver" in a road rage incident which occurred in Los Angeles. Dan Inosanto was a passenger in the car that Bruce was driving. Inosanto was a student of Bruce Lee.

        9) In the late 1960's, Bruce Lee ended a fight with one of Vic Damone's security staff with a side kick to the jaw. Bruce Lee confirmed that this brief encounter took place to the publisher of Black Belt magazine.

        10) Director Lo Wei and several members of the film crew witnessed Bruce Lee defeat a challenger on the set of the Big Boss.

        11) Bob Wall witnessed Bruce demolish an extra on the set of Enter the Dragon. Wall was a point tournament champion and he stated that Bruce knee trapped his larger opponent, performed a lop sao on one of his arms, and proceded to punch his opponent several times in the face with his free hand.

        12) Several members of the film crew witnessed a separate fight between Bruce Lee and an extra on the set of Enter the Dragon. Bruce broke the extra's ribs with a side kick.

        13) In 1973, an intruder climbed over a wall on Bruce Lee's property in Hong Kong and challenged him. Bruce told the late Herb Jackson that he was "popping mad" and that he ended the fight with a side kick to the intruder's chest. Jackson was a student of Bruce Lee.

          • Thread hijack in progress:

            Here's my reasoning (taken from a double check I did on the DBMA Assn forum) -- what's yours?
            ===================
            Quote
            Which is correct?

            a) Who did Bruce Lee fight? or

            b) Whom did Bruce Lee fight?

            Why?

            b.

            Know the difference between who and whom. They are both pronouns but who is used as the subject of a sentence or phrase and whom is used as the object of a verb. What follows is a quick way to determine which pronoun to use in a particular question:

            2) Use whom when referring to the object of a verb.
            To whom it may concern:
            To whom did you talk today?
            Whom does Sarah love?

            3) Use who when referring to the subject of a sentence or phrase.
            Who brought the paper inside?
            Who talked to you today?
            Who went to dinner?

            4) Ask yourself if the answer to the question would be he or him. If you can answer the question with him, then use whom. It's easy to remember because they both end with "m". If you can answer the question with he, then use who.

            Example: A suitable answer to the question, "To [who or whom] did the prize go?" is, "It went to him." (Almost no one would say "It went to he.") The correct pronoun for the question is whom.

            Example: A suitable answer to the question, "[Who or Whom] went to the store?" is, "He went to the store." (Almost no one would say "Him went to the store.") The correct pronoun for the question who.

            or

            if you can replace a word with "he" or "she," then it is the subject of the sentence and you should use "who." If you can replace the word with "him" or "her," it is the object and you should use "whom." You might need to rephrase the sentence to make this work.

            • That was a clear and concise explanation, I will print it and use it in my next courses when that topic comes around!

                You miss both descriptively and prescriptively champ. Move on.

                • Well, in the absence of your participation on the merits, I shall.

                  Thank you "Just the facts" for your post on whom Bruce Lee fought.

                  The Adventure continues!

                  • points to ponder

                    BL was a martial arts instructor and an actor. He created, before his untimely death, an approach to martial arts training and fighting that is followed, to a greater or lesser extent, by thousands of martial arts practitioners.
                    He was an innovator in the martial arts and some of his theories anticipated the "mma craze" of today. His ideas concerning the use of the right lead are still of value to this day. Beyond this, I do not believe that it is necessary for me to think that "Bruce Lee in his prime" could have defeated anyone and everyone this side of Godzilla! The idea that Bruce could have "taken" everyone and anyone arises from the fact that his movie persona could beat 100 guys at once. And that is all fantasy- BL was a man like other men.
                    Why aren't posters on these forums asking who Uyeshiba, Hwang Kee, or
                    Chogin Miyagi "really" fought? Some grandmasters, founders, and system-inheritors like Ch'ang and Oyama fought full-contact and their matches are part of indisputable history. Others are clouded in mystery, like the exploits of Master Pai Mei from Kill Bill 2. My question is-if not for the movies, would anyone care if BL fought full-contact? For me, what he did accomplish was enough, and I am str8 wing chun and not a jkd follower.

                    • I think he was enamored of the Prussian Empire too. I mean, sure, Mas was a super badass, but half of that comes from being totally insane. Don't fight guys that attack rocks, its just a bad idea. Or guys that fight bulls without swords.
