He was an international movie star as well as the original gold standard martial artist, but Bruce Lee was also a philosopher. His pocket notebooks contained everything from dance routines, to uplifting self-affirmations and deep life-shaping wisdom's. While known for his classic films, his crowning achievement is the art known as Jeet Kune Do.
In a note to his students, Bruce Lee wrote “the art of Jeet Kune Do is simply to simplify.” He believed in honesty in all actions and championed a freedom of expression that had never been seen in the world of martial arts. Jeet Kune Do was designed for combat, but its tenets can be applied to the challenges of everyday life; “using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation.”
