Today - on his birthday - we remember the iconic Bruce Lee, who permeated culture in such a way; he had a grip on human potential. He’s ingrained in so much of our unconscious movement. He turned Hong Kong into a backdrop of wonder, his nunchucks an extension to the gears in his mind. His very name became an aspiration, an association to some golden beyond. If there were no Bruce Lee, there’d be no UFC. It was imagination that wondered what style beats what.
All of the contributions that Lee made to the martial arts, to film, to race relations, to culture — indeed, to the single-file forces of tyranny coming at a kid on the playground, if even in imagination — it all goes into the man. Bruce Lee is, was, and will continue to be, a legend.
The arrangement of his tenses, like his movements, remain pretty fluid.
Happy birthday, Bruce.
