How Bruce Lee Died
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Bruce Lee’s death.
When Bruce died and for many years after, people wanted to know how he died. Papers, articles and movies were made that speculated he died because of an analgesic causing water on the brain while some the possibility that he was taken down by demons.
But while these popular forms of media concentrated on the loss of one of the greatest martial artists in the world, martial artists around the world did what they do best. Still, to this day, anyone who partakes in the martial arts world, no matter their chosen style, takes something from Bruce Lee.
From where do they take this inspiration? From the seemingly mysterious media-created whirlwind surrounding his death? No. From his life.
His workout routines. His diet plans. His physique. His speed. His attitude.
Or perhaps his continual search of what it meant to be a human being.
Whatever it is, on this day that Bruce Lee died, I, along with many other martial artists across the globe, celebrate his life and what it means to BE.
