Philosophies and Physique

What most people don’t realize when it comes to Bruce Lee is that his brilliance did not only lie in his movies or his martial arts, but his philosophies as well. When it comes to martial arts, Bruce Lee shied away from martial arts as a sport. He was this way because he believed that martial arts utilized as a sport denied the art from its fullest potential. It isn’t the ultimate martial art unless there is no holding back. In other words, he wanted an art that he could “use.” No holds barred, no holding back, and anything goes – that was Bruce Lee’s philosophy.
Another aspect of Bruce Lee for which he isn’t conventionally acknowledged is his incredible strength and lean, shredded physique. For years now, Bruce Lee has been the inspiration of many physique champions and body builders. In addition, many of his physical feats are the stuff of legends. For example, Lee is well known for the one-handed push-ups or thumb push-ups and the infamous one-inch punch that could send individuals weighing far more than him flying at least ten feet away. For a mere 135 pounds, Bruce Lee’s strength is absolutely frightening.
