Martial Arts

A martial art, often referred to as a fighting system, is a system of codified practices and traditions of training for combat, usually (but not always) without the use of guns and other modern weapons. Today, people study martial arts for various reasons including sport, fitness, self-defense, self-cultivation (meditation), mental discipline and character development, and self-confidence. The therm "martial art" does not mean only a way of fighting, but it can be interpreted as a life philosophy. A real martial artist should find in his own martial art a way by 'honestly expressing himself'. The most important example of Martial Artist of the 20th century is Bruce Lee. Through his films he made occidental people know martial arts fascination.
"With nothing but his hands, feet and a lot of attitude, he turned the little guy into a tough guy." -- Time


The Time
"In an America where the Chinese were still stereotyped as meek house servants and railroad workers, Bruce Lee was all steely sinew, threatening stare and cocky, pointed finger — a Clark Kent who didn't need to change outfits. He was the redeemer, not only for the Chinese but for all the geeks and dorks and pimpled teenage masses that washed up at the theaters to see his action movies. He was David, with spin-kicks and flying leaps more captivating than any slingshot".

Bruce Lee Divine Wind
In a lifetime comprising a mere 32 years, Bruce Lee revolutionized the world of martial arts through his profound teachings and philosophy, and created a legacy through his work in motion pictures, that has evolved into a Legend. Thought by many to be the ‘Greatest martial artist of the 20th Century’, Bruce Lee didn't believe in classic styles of fighting, like judo or Karate, but he proposed a new style, a style with no rules, a style with which a martial artist could express himself, "totally and completely".

Lost Interview
"...like water: if you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup; if you put water into a body, it becomes the body; if you put (water) into a tea-pot, it becomes the tea-pot. A water can flow or it can crash:be water my friend!", "...I do not believe in styles anymore, I do not believe that there is such thing as like a chinese way of fighting or a japanese way of fighting or whatever way of fighting...", "...here I am as a human being, how can I express myself, totally and completely", "...martial arts have a very deep mean...I think that martial arts mean honestly expressing yourself"
