To Celebrate The Day

Posted by Michael on November 27th, 2014

In the United States it is Thanksgiving Day (and, yeah, we are taking the rest of it off). However, November 27 is something else worth celebrating: Bruce Lee’s birthday. Martial artist, philosopher, actor, filmmaker… Bruce Lee is still an international icon over 40 years after his death. To celebrate the life of The Little Dragon iTricks brings you this clip from Way of the Dragon (aka Return of the Dragon), featuring his legendary onscreen fight with Chuck Norris. This clip was selected because Bruce not only choreographed the actual fight but also wrote and directed the film (which has a great deal of comedy as well as kung fu).

Bruce Lee was not a magician, but he was a storyteller, entertainer and inspiration to many people all over the world.
