Actual footage of Bruce Lee engaging in unscripted combat is quite hard to come by. While we can appreciate the work he’s done on screen in classics like TheWay of the Dragon which boast stellar choreography, raw footage of him engaging in combat remains to be seen. Luckily, a video has been unearthed of him doing exactly that.
Despite the recent controversies surrounding Bruce Lee and the remarks about him made by Quentin Tarantino, he really was one of the absolute masters of martial arts, featuring in some outstanding performances on the big screen. He is best known for some of the most note-worthy martial art films of our time such as Enter The Dragon and Fist of Fury and many, many more.
However, despite his acting in action masterclass films such as those mentioned above, actual footage of him engaging in combat is extremely rare to find which is almost definitely a sad fact for those who consider themselves hardcore fans.
Fortunately for us though, a video has recently been discovered that shows him sparring against one of his best students, Ted Wong, that really is incredible to witness.
In the video, we can clearly see the same skills that he exhibits in his films in full force: his lightning-fast agility, his incredible precision, and his quick reflexes. Bruce Lee truly was a master of the art.
