Exit The Dragon

Forty years after the death of Bruce Lee, he still remains the most recognizable martial arts star (and perhaps Chinese movie star) in history. As a new five year exhibition dedicated to his life and legacy opens in Hong Kong, his star shines as brightly as ever. Since his death in 1973, films have been made about his life and death, television shows have been created around him, snippets of unused footage were used to anchor films and there was even a cartoon to capitalize on his fame. Outside of the world of entertainment, his writings remain in print and the single martial arts school he founded has spread to have branches all over the world. Sadly, his death would not be the last tragedy in the Lee family. His son Brandon followed Bruce’s footsteps with both a career in action films and an early death.

Four decades after his death, Bruce Lee’s movies still entertain us, his career still inspires us and his writings still teach us.
