the Bruce Lee karate thing

Hi again! On the familiar clip of B.R.talking to Johnny Carson about Bruce Lee being his favorite person and his fascination with karate in general,does anyone know what got him into that? Was it to shape up;to be cool or what?Of course working out would give a person extra energy during performances to be sure!I know Elvis also did that!Now DON'T BE CRUEL!

Re: the Bruce Lee karate thing


Hi Larry, I think that we all know that Buddy was a Karate and self defense instructor in the Marines. If he brought this yen with him when enlisted is not clear. That is what he did while serving during the war. He liked the aggressive attitude of the thing very much because it fit his nature. What do you think??
