    I guess.
    Being in constant training since he was four years old doesn't explain it sufficiently?

    Well...

    Oniw17, it wouldn't make sense that Bruce was a cocaine user because he never manifested the physical symptoms of being a cocaine user. For example, Bruce's resting heart rate was on average around twenty something beats per minute (extremely low!) In fact, at UCLA facilities where he got his June 1973 physical it was also very low. A cocaine user would have a higher than normal heart beat.

    Bruce worked out hard, but that's very possible without drugs. Look at Olympic gymnasts and marathon runners and such. They don't use drugs, yet they push their bodies to the limits. Bruce was no different... and he was a very serious, dedicated, and disciplined martial artist, which is why he pushed himself so hard.

    Bruce actually stopped working out the last few months of his life (as he was told to by physicians). He had become lethargic and a bit ill and had lost a large amount of weight for no apparent reason. He was under enormous pressure and he had definitely overworked himself. He became an insomniac the last year of his life and was experiencing frequent mood changes, depression, and anxiety attacks according to some loved ones. For those reasons, it is VERY possible Bruce used some sort of tranquilizer to relax him (and by very possible, I mean he DID use tranquilizers). I don't believe any were illegal (other than the marijuana, which actually isn't even a tranquilizer), but I do believe he became overdependent on them.

    I have his book (well, Linda's book, really - he did not want the book published because he did not consider it done).

    So start a thread on JKD in here.
    This thread has nothing to do with philosophy - his or anyone else's.
    That's a good point you made, one_raven. I agree, someone should start a JKD thread here and discuss Bruce's philosophy, which is very connected with Eastern philosophy. By the way, I also own the book you are talking about.

    Is it true that Bruce Lee's son died by the same cause? May be it runs in the family.

    Really?
    So which scene was being filmed at the time?
    Filming was taking place in the loft set (Eric and Shelley's apartment). The scene in question is near the beginning of the film, when T-Bird, Funboy and the others 'pay Eric & Shelley a visit' and kill Eric. Funboy (Michael Massee) points a gun at Eric and fires. The shot injures Brandon Lee who later died of his injuries.

    Claim: The scene in which Brandon Lee was fatally wounded was left in the final cut of The Crow.
    Status: False.

    Lee Jun Fan, one of Bruce Lee's names. He was also kown as Li Yuen Kam for a while, and also Sai Fung, a feminine name, which is a tradition to confuse evil spirits or something. The Nurse that delivered him gave him the name 'Bruce' but he didn't use it until he went to college.

    His screen names are various translations of 'little dragon', as he was born in the year of the dragon.

    no it was because he chased the brown dragon


    yeah he was given a girls name because the evil spirits wanted to molest him when he was younger. they should have used a coin sword to whoop the evil spirits ass.

    take that shar chi





    peace,

    Why dwell on his death or all the bad things he might have done. Instead we should focus on his teachings and learn from him. Isn't that what he wanted us to do?

    OK. The movie just ended. Apparently, he fell into a mysterious coma and died. So there you go.
