Response to Re: In a boxing ring - Ali, On the street "probably" Lee


Whether it be Ali, or Tyson or Chuck Liddell, these guys fight under rules and regulations, so to put Lee in with these guys would totally restrict what he actually practised. The Bruce Lee we all know and love is from what we can see in his movies which were of course fictional, no hiding that fact AND in fact Lee would be the first to agree with that statement.

With the way Lee trained outside of the movie fighting style, was basically a direct and speed related principal, to attack the nearest target with his nearest weapon, and no matter how big or strong an opponent may be, a finger jab to the eye or a crippling kick to the knee-cap would incapacitate Goliath.

So to compare Lee with the competition fighters (of whom I am a great follower such as Benny Urquidez) is not really worth trying to discuss, because it would be a bit like comparing a tennis player with a squash player - two different things all together. But remember one thing: Speed Kills!! and Lee = Speed.

On a last note, lets remember that Lee was a mortal human being, but one that strived for maximum potential in his martial art, which for him wasn't about rules and regulations. In other words, the best weapon for an exponent of JKD is a Colt 45 :) .....if the situation calls for it, then use it, because its not about championship belts or trophies, its about survival.
