keseki - What some of the "experts" don't get is that real judo includes atemi (striking). (As Gene would be the first to educate you).

Everything Bruce did in the clip was 1000% legit judo.

The thread didn't say "Olympic judo".

We don't know how it would have really gone down. Bruce was a pro, and pros don't abuse their stunt people.

Yeah, Gene was good at "sport" judo and pro-wrestling, and knew a little karate, and had some pounds on Bruce.

But let's keep it real.




That clip is from a FUCKING MOVIE, like everything else Bruce Lee ever did. He was an ACTOR ffs.

Americans are so fucking dumb



GSP vs Matt Damon, who takes it? Damon kicked som serious ass in the Bourne trilogy. Phone Post

It was a TV program, not a movie.

Not all Americans are dumb. That is a stereotype.

I have met some intelligent Americans. Not all Americans are dumb.

What some people are forgetting is that the TV program was a scripted scene. It wasn't real. In a real "street" encounter, I think Gene would have done better. But that is only my personal opinion. However, Gene would not have gone toe to toe with Bruce, for the obvious reasons. Even "dumb" Americans know that.

I was under the impression it was a sparring-ish type thing between the scenes, after shooting one day or something. Bruce was definitely the type to challenge people. But if it were just part of the scene, rehearsal or whatever, and he wouldn't put Bruce down, that would make sense too.

In a real fight (not Judo) Bruce was bound to chop him as that was his focus and he had great experience in them.

What is amazing is that UG'ers lack the common sense to listen to Chuck and Gene on the topic. They will tell you he was a world class martial artist quickly.

anyone who points out that Bruce Lee was around 135 lbs, had limited fight experience and was mostly interested in his acting career = "Bruce Lee hater"

No doubt. Reminds me of a guy from work who told me that two green berets he knows can break people necks with their bare hands. He really believes they can just walk up to people and kill them by breaking their necks like in the movies. It's just weird how people want to believe in things even when it flies in the face of all reality, logic, and facts. Phone Post
