See below the only ‘real’ fight of Bruce Lee, as revealed in amazing shots. He effortlessly WINS one of his students.
The video shows Lee and his student, Ted Wong, sparring. Wong accepts many times punches in the head, while both wear protective body armor, as it is required. Bruce Lee was famous for his amazing athletic body and his ability to fight both in the ring and outside it.
Apart from the fact that he was a star of Kung Fu films, he also created his own martial art: the Jeet Kune Do. The style was designed to be fast and able to work both in a match up in the ring and on the road.
Lee sparred regularly with his students, but only one of his matches was recorded.
“This is the only recording of Bruce Lee in a real MMA fight. He’s fighting Ted Wong here, one of his top students,” wrote Beerdy.
In the video, the two men seem to wear dark protective things. Beerdy claims that those were the “State Rules” at that time.
It is not clear where the video was filmed, but it was likely in California, where Lee had his school for Jeet Kune Do, and where Wong studied.
Wong tries repeatedly to get close to Bruce Lee, who keeps his distance at all time and moves like lightning to deflect and disarm Wong whenever he gets close.
The thick gloves may have helped both men in this case. Beerdy says though that Lee would prefer not to wear it.
“If not for those rules I can guarantee you that Bruce would have fought bare-knuckled,” he claims.
Wong was taught only from Lee and from no other teacher. He continued to teach a “clean” version of the unique way of Lee’s fighting. Beerdy also wrote a number of books on martial arts and entered the Hall of Fame of Black Belt magazine. He was the “Man of the year” in 2006, when he was 69 years old.
Beerdy has released another video a few hours later, in which he claims that the war artist Richard Bustillo, who died this year, was present during the fight.
