Response to When it comes to trapping....


Run me by who you have trained with from Chinatown era as you are saying none from then come close to Jesse Glover?Jesse Glover was with Bruce very early after he came to the States, his trapping was basic and crude using a lot of pressure.Later Bruce refined and improved all aspects of trapping and discarded certain things, Jesse was not around then to see that.People like Jesse Glover, Howard Williams...... knew only a handful of techniques and worked on them for many years nothing wrong with doing that but later students of Bruce Lee learned a lot more and saw Bruce progress and evolve over many years.You said Chinatown students, well Dan Inosanto was the main Instructor there he took most of the classes not Bruce Lee, despite some there claiming or talking like the only person they learned from was Bruce Lee himself.

Who did Tommy Carruthers learn all of the Chinatown syllabus from? It covers an awful lot of material,the trapping alone would take a long term to learn it all. Jesse didn't know it he wasn't around then, Ted Wong didn't know it all, Tim Tackett -Tommy Carruthers studied with him very briefly. So where did he learn it? The students of Instructors of people like Tommy Carruthers, Emil Martirossian, etc think they are great martial artists and what they are doing is practical for self defence today but nobody else really views them as great martial artists or amongst the best in the world - enough said! I seriously doubt people like Tommy or Emil, etc would claim they were or think that for a second.
