Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although the time Bruce Lee spent in Oakland, California is often treated as a mere footnote on his path to stardom, these years had a substantial impact on the martial artist and man he would become. After many years of research, authors Sid Campbell and Greglon Yimm Lee (son of James Yimm Lee) continue their fascinating, up-close description of Bruce Lee's early life.

The Dragon and the Tiger, Volume 2 takes up where Volume 1 left off, detailing Bruce Lee's departure from Seattle and his adventure-filled return to Oakland. We follow him as he comes to better know Gung-fu extraordinaire James Lee and his circle of martial arts friends. As Bruce discovers James's numerous talents—as an author, publisher, martial arts equipment inventor, herbal pharmacologist, body builder, and phenomenal 'brick breaker'—he begins to make regular trips from Seattle to Oakland to learn from this exceptional man. Bruce Lee also begins teaching his Jun Fan Gung-fu and elements of chun to his newfound friend.

Bruce Lee and James Yimm Lee were both highly opinionated free thinkers and when Bruce and his new bride Linda Emery Lee moved to Oakland and lived with James Lee's family, they began to share ideas, insights, philosophies, friendship, camaraderie, and a deep respect for one another's special traits and talents. Although James was twenty years Bruce's senior, they forged a bond and became more like brothers than friends- young Greglon Lee even took to calling Bruce and Linda 'Uncle' and 'Aunt.' This rare friendship and further never-before-revealed details from the life of the young Bruce Lee unfold in The Dragon and the Tiger, Volume 2, a story the authors refer to as the 'Fusion of Two Fighters.'

Synopsis:

Bruce Lee's years in Oakland during the early 1960s are usually treated as a mere footnote on his path to superstardom, but this period had massive impact on both his film career and martial arts practice. Volume Two of The Dragon and the Tiger continues where the first left off, chronicling Lee's pivotal relationship with master James Yimm Lee and his development of the Jeet Kune Do style. Highlights include Doug Palmer's first-ever account of his friend Lee's trip to Hong Kong to train with the notorious Grandmaster Yip Man, as well as dozens of interviews with Bruce's students and glimpses of rare documents and family history. The Dragon and the Tiger reveals Lee to be an extraordinarily talented young man as well as a warm and caring person.
