Bruce Lee passed away today, July 20th in 1973. He was 32.

While I think that people over hype the Bruce Lee image, might as well remember him today, on the JKD forum... Whatever the circumstances of his passing away, obviously he had made a strong enough impression as his legacy continues.
We are seeing the generation of warriors that he hekped create pass away with the passing of the likes of Ted Wong, and Wally Jay who helped teach Bruce Lee joint locks and grappling.

I went through my tai chi form this morning. I'll do the my Siu Lim Tao form this evening.

Practice...

 If it wasn't for Bruce I'd probably still be doing Tae Kwon Do.

Grateful for his teachings which have had a positive impact on my thinking/training.

Wish I could say I would break out my 'chuks in honor of him, but I don't have a pair anymore sadly.

How exactly does someone die at 32?

Lots of ways "someone" can die at 32... what's you're point?

A Hong Kong English teacher put out a hit contract on him, is what I heard. Dunno, might be just a rumor though. Still, 32 is pretty young, seems suspicious.
