Response to Muay Thai's influence on Bruce Lee


Bruce Lee did write about Muay Thai in his Tao of JKD book, but from what I've read, he thought they were too one dimensional, not enough foot movement. But they did beat the Hell out of some Kung Fu experts that went to Bangkok in 1971 for some challenge matches. All the matches ended in first round KO's. But I believe he did use the power roundhouse kick used in Muay Thai in some of his demos.
