Bruce Lee - The Evolution of a Martial Artist


This looks great.

It's safe to say that there have been many, many books on Bruce Lee published over the years. Looking at his training philosophy, approach to nutrition and a whole lot more. Fascinating areas.


Joining the ranks is Bruce Lee - The Evolution of a Martial Artist by none other than JKD practitioner and historian Tommy Gong. As the book itself isn't released until June 1st (although you can pre-order it here), the Amazon page will give you a good idea of what's included :

Tracing Bruce Lee's path from wing chun student to jeet kune do founder, this biography chronicles Lee's physical journey--from Hong Kong to Seattle to Oakland to Los Angeles and back again to Hong Kong--as well as his voyage of self-discovery and actualization. The book draws on numerous conversations with Bruce Lee's childhood classmates, former students, and family friends, offering a unique insight into the life of the legendary martial artist.
