Bruce lee appreciation

I love Bruce Lee, he's such an inspiration. His life and work really inspired me to lose 20kg of weight a few years ago. I'll never forget his influence.
Bruce Lee was one of the reasons I took up Martial Arts myself! :D Me and my brother used to constantly watch his films when we were younger! I'm still saddened that he didn't get to finish Game of Death :no:


“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Bruce Lee was a legend to say the least, he definitely influenced virtually every martial art fan today.
Oh gosh yes! I'm a big fan of Bruce and all he's accomplished. Hehe he's been a pretty big influence on me as well, not only for his films and words of wisdom...and he helped to get me interested in taking a karate class. It was a rather low time in my life and after seeing the documentary for him that came out, I Am Bruce Lee, it really spoke to me. It lit the fire under my ass to go improve myself. Thanks to that, and finding the Thunder Bay Karate School, I received my green belt after a year and a half working for it. I had to stop cuz of moving but I hope to someday get back into it and hopefully get my black belt. If I had the chance to thank him for changing my life for the better, I certainly would love to. Thank you for just being you, Bruce. You have made such an impact on so many people...much more than you might know.
