Birth name: Lee Jun Fan.
Bruce Lee was a American and Hong Kong actor, martial
artist, philosopher, film director, screenwriter,
practitioner of Yong Chun and founder of the Jeet Kune Do
concept. He is considered by many as the most influential
martial artist of the 20th century, and a cultural icon. He
became an iconic figure, particularly among the Chinese, as
he portrayed Chinese national pride and Chinese nationalism
in his movies.
While Lee initially trained in Yong Chun, he later rejected
well-defined martial art styles, favoring instead to utilize
useful techniques from various sources.
