    Yes, the camera can't pick up on a non-kick!!!! Incredible.

    Also watch his bag work.. He punches like I did before boxing. Very impressive!!

    You admire Bruce Lee? A guy who purposely challenged traditional Karate dojos, instead of legit fighting gyms?

    Note a single report of Lee challenging boxing gyms, because he respected those guys abilities as fighters and knew he would get smashed.

    That's ironic concidering that Lee did not believe in kicking to the face in real combat, only in movies because it looked flashy.

    apparently he changed his philosophy about that after training with Chuck Norris, who showed him there is a time and place to kick high. Besides not kicking to the head was in the context of street fights, not sparring or sport fighting. He sparred and trained Joe Lewis who was a full contact champion.

    There is no indication that Bruce Lee changed his mind. He kicked people in the face in the Green Hornet... Long before Chuck pushed for it.

    Chuck Norris did not say that Lee changed his fight philosophy. And like I mentioned, he kicked people in the head before that.

    He was very fast, though.
    That is one of a multitude of requirements to excel in the full game, but he had God given quickness.

    I agree about the non kick. I would like this vid more if he at least extended it a bit.

    I have identical muscle fiber speed in my hands. I don't think that makes me special. Plenty of people have that.
