Bruce Lee's birthplace was San Francisco, California although he was raised in Hong Kong, where he received his formal martial arts training and knowledge, during his adolescence.

Lee's Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, and sparked the first major surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West.

As a youngster in Hong Kong Bruce's street fighting had become a problem and so Bruce's father and mother decided that he should take a three week voyage to the United States.

So Lee returns to his birth-place to claim his American Citizenship with $15 from his father, and $100 from his mother.

He arrived in the United States and lived with an old friend of his father's and worked odd jobs around the various Chinese communities.

He later moved to Seattle to work for Ruby Chow, another friend of his fathers. Here he lived in a room above her restaurant while working as a waiter downstairs. He eventually enrolls in Edison Technical School and earns his high school diploma and begins to teach his Martial Arts.

It is a little known fact that Bruce Lee actually made 23 films as a child and teenager in Hong Kong, none of them having anything to do with kung fu, before he went to the States in 1959.

It wasn't till much later that he became famous for the 5 martial arts themed movies that have become cult classics worldwide.

Bruce Lee was famous for his devotion to martial arts and his great abilities in this field.

He was not only an exceptional martial artist, but also a serious body builder and he firmly believed that diet played a very important role in achieving his objectives.

However, he was not an expert in nutrition and gained most of his information from body building magazines and experimenting with different supplements in addition to eating a well balanced healthy diet.

The direction and tone of Lee's films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts films in Hong Kong and the rest of the world as well.

Bruce Lee became an iconic figure, particularly to the Chinese, as he portrayed Chinese national pride and Chinese nationalism in his movies.

Many see Lee as a model blueprint for acquiring a strong and efficient body and the highest possible level of physical fitness, as well as developing a mastery of martial arts and hand to hand combat skills

Jeet Kune Do originated in 1965. A match with Wong Jack Man influenced Lee's philosophy on fighting.

Lee believed that the fight had lasted too long and that he had failed to live up to his potential using Wing Chun techniques.

He took the view that traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalistic to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting. Lee decided to develop a system with an emphasis on "practicality, flexibility, speed, and efficiency".

He started to use different methods of training such as weight training for strength, running for endurance, stretching for flexibility, and many others which he constantly adapted.

Brandon Lee was born in 1965, and less than a month later Bruce’s father died. Grief-stricken, Bruce flies alone to Hong Kong to attend his father’s funeral, before using his advance from producer Dozier to fly himself, Linda and Brandon back to Hong Kong, to settle the affairs of his father’s estate.

After spending time with his grieving mother, Bruce returns to the United States in September of ‘65, and resides in Seattle, before relocating with his family to an exclusive apartment on Wiltshire and Gayley in Westwood, Los Angeles.

His fans in Hong Kong have taken action and want Bruce Lee’s home to be made into a museum, in front of the statue of Bruce Lee on the harbor-front and they accuse the government of not properly paying honor homage to him and his legacy.
