How well do you remember your first time? How old were you?
My first time was quite a while ago, but I remember it in vivid detail. I was six years old at the time. I remember not knowing exactly what was going on, but loving every second of it. The movements, the sounds, the raw energy of it all. It was the most amazing thing I had ever experienced up to that point in my life.
That was my first time watching a Bruce Lee movie. I was hooked then and there, and I still am today.
Like any 80’s baby, I was obsessed with Karate/Kung Fu. In the 80’s we had the Karate Kid movies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the cartoon, Kung Fu for NES (THAT GAME WAS THE SHIT!), and of course The Last Dragon with Leroy. The early 90s then brought us Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat, Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles movies (complete with crappy Vanilla Ice music).
However as much as I loved the Turtles, Bruce Lee was always it for me. No matter how many times I watched his movies I was always amazed. The speed, the power, the funny noises. What’s not to love?
If you like Bruce, you’ll love this…
