True or not? You be the judge. This book is the most detailed version ever written of the fight between Wong Jack Man and Bruce Lee in 1964, a fight which many insiders say spurred Lee on to create his personal art of Jeet Kune Do (JKD), Most importantly, it describes the context within which the fight occurred, how it all happened, why it happened, and what happened afterward. It is also a glimpse into the kung fu world of San Francisco Chinatown in the 1960s. This fight has taken on an almost mythical status in the much studied career of the great martial icon Bruce Lee. Details unknown to the general public are revealed here for the first time ever and any student of martial history, Bruce Lee, or Jeet Kune Do should find this book a fascinating read. If anyone wishes to discuss this incident in an intelligent and thoughtful manner, this book must be read. Follow the author's careful reasoning as he takes the reader back in time to an incident which took place almost fifty years ago. The true-life story behind this match is easily as interesting (perhaps more so) as any fictionalized movie portrayal of this singular encounter. Eyewitness accounts, Chinese newspaper articles (with their English translations) and many old photographs make this meticulously researched book required reading for anyone interested in what actually transpired between Wong Jack Man and Bruce Lee in late 1964 and early 1965. These newspaper articles document the viewpoints of both Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man on the fight at the time. Get an inside look at what really happened and step back in time to the streets of San Francisco Chinatown in 1964!
