The late BRUCE LEE still is the most famous martial artist of all time, but beyond his movie star status he was also one of the premier martial art innovators of this century. After years of study in Wing Chun, Thai Boxing, Karate, American Boxing and numerous other arts, Lee synthesized the martial art of Jun Fan Gung Fu & the philosophical system he called Jeet Kune Do. The system constantly evolved until his death in 1973.
Lee promoted only three students as instructors in Jeet Kune Do and Jun Fan: James Lee, Dan Inosanto and Taky Kimura. Since the passing of Sifu Lee, Sifus Inosanto and Kimura are the only living documented instructors under Bruce Lee.
