I guess all of us guys are familiar with Bruce Lee. I was browsing some stuffs on the internet when I reached a page which talks about a chapter of his life.
To give you an insight, here's a brief review of the life of the legendary martial artist.
Bruce Lee was not just a Hong Kong American martial artist but also an action film actor, martial arts instructor and a filmmaker. He was considered the most influential martial artists of all time, and a pop culture icon of the 20th century.
Mr. Lee was born in Chinatown, San Francisco on November 27, 1940 to parents from Hong Kong and was raised in Kowloon until his late teens. He was introduced to the film industry by his father and appeared in several films as a child actor. He moved to the US when he was 18 to get his higher education. He went to University of Washington and he began teaching martial arts. His Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, sparking a surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West in the 1970's. The direction and tone of his films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts films in the United States, Hong Kong and the rest of the world.
On July 20, 1973 (at the age of 32), Mr. Lee died in hypersensitivity to either meprobamate or aspirin as to what the autopsy explains.
