Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1962 author Greglon Lee's father, martial arts expert James Yimm Lee, joined forces with the future superstar Bruce Lee (1940-1973) to form the Jun Fan Gung-fu Institute, now considered the birthplace of Jeet Kune Do. Their relationship was crucial in Lee's progression from unknown student to celebrated master, shaping Lee's ideology and outlook on the martial arts for years to come. Using extensive interviews with dozens of Bruce's students and contemporaries as well as anecdotes based on rare documents and family history, the authors present an engaging picture of Bruce Lee as an extraordinarily talented young man who was also a warm and caring person. This insider's look at Bruce Lee's formative years also outlines the development of Lee's legendary skills between 1962 and 1965, an era previously unchronicled.

Synopsis:

This book sets the stage for Bruce Lee's Oakland Years' journey, leading the reader chronologically through the factual events that culminated in Bruce and James Yimm Lee's meeting and becoming the best of friends. Bruce and James' ideas and philosophies changed the course of martial arts, particularly in the Greater Bay area.
