Bruce Lee was a fan of training: according to his widow Linda Lee, there was the moment when Bruce was not engaged (even while watching TV, he sat down on the string). Of all the muscles of his body Li paid the most attention to the abdominal muscles, which are used effectively with any movement, and thus are of great importance in the martial arts.
In an attempt to improve the strength of your abdominal muscles, Lee invented the exercise, which is now in his honor called the flag of the dragon. If you have not guessed, this is one of the most difficult exercises – because Lee was not some layabout. Stallone may popularized this exercise in Rocky 4, but Lee was able to do the exercise so that it can support all the weight of his body on a horizontal position over the bench, and only his shoulders rested on the bench.
Imagine that someone had to fight with Lee, and then before the fight he would have seen how Bruce hovers in the air. Even the stern soldier would run with such speed that would move ahead of time.
Catching the rice with chopsticks
Remember the scene from the movie “Karate Kid-» (Karate Kid), in which Pat Morita (Pat Morita) catches a fly with chopsticks? Yes, Bruce Lee went on. It is said that Bruce is so wondered development of his reaction, he threw rice into the air and trying to catch a falling risinku. Apparently, if you can catch a small risinku falling on the ground, it will be easier for you to fight with the big guys. Martial Arts!
Although this sounds useless, self skill and dexterity required to perform such a stunt made him clench his fists constantly about women to their hips were not separated from the body and do not instinctively ran to him. At the very least, it seems.
He was too strong for conventional boxing bags
At the time, Lee used a variety of fitness equipment designed specifically for him by his close friend James Lee (James Lee). Some of them have been collected on request of the Li, the others were collected due to the necessity. Punching Bag Lee second example causes.
According to an unknown source, a boxing bag to make fun of other bags, far surpassing them in size. Conventional boxing bags weigh about 30 pounds, and some even go up to 70 pounds. Lee bag weighed 140 pounds! And it was filled with metal. This is not because Lee was a braggart, he just could not use a lighter non-metallic bag without having to break it. According to some stories, Lee could hit a punch bag so hard that he fell down from the ceiling. Maybe he did not knock the bag from the ceiling, but once he hit the bag so hard that cause seizures in humans. Seriously.
Push-ups on one finger. Pull-ups on one hand.
How many times you could have wrung out right now? If your answer is anything but “so much that the earth would have thought that I’m trying to breed with her,” you’re really playing a Bruce Lee.
In his youth, Lee loved to show off during training. One of his favorite tricks was push-ups on one finger. The exercise is performed exactly the way you think, and Bruce served him just to prove that he can. And what tricks you like to show on the parties? You can bet that your tricks now you seemed pitiful.
Bruce incredible power was not limited to his fingers – he just could not catch up on one hand, and according to some sources, he was able to catch up so 50 times and not get tired. Of course, this exercise is not exclusive to Bruce, but the fact that he was doing it just because he could bring us some pride that we live in the same world in which there were his biceps.
This is one of the most famous skill Lee and surprising. Lee had a strong hand so that he could knock down an adult male from a distance of about 2.5 centimeters.
This skill is so impressive that the scientists interviewed many masters of martial arts to learn how this is possible. There is even a rare video clip in which Lee performs inch putt on a wooden board, apparently to trees, peeking movie, knew their place.
There are also stories according to which Bruce used the impact on school children – it is very much appreciated training future generations. Lesson No. 1: Do not zli Bruce Lee.
It was impossible to strike
Bruce Lee, who became a star for the fact that he is very good at fighting with people naturally are often called in for a fight in the street, because people in the 70s were shockingly stupid.
Fighting usually ended the same way: Bruce simply dismiss them as a fight with passers-by had no meaning. Sometimes, however, were too willing intrusive and Bruce Lee had to show what’s what. During his life, Lee fought in the street three times, and none of his opponents did not even hit him a blow – he was too fast. When he was offered a fight on the set of “Enter the Dragon”, Bruce escaped all the blows of the enemy and pinned him to the wall. He then taught the fool.
Teach a person who is the instigator of street fights, the best way to fight – the logic of this is not clear. But we will not argue simply because of the fact that in the afterlife excuses to Lee did not particularly want to.
He could pull a coin out of a person’s hands and replace it with another
Speed Lee is so legendary that many cheetahs hang a picture of him in his lair, and Usain Bolt (Usain Bolt) has to watch movies of Bruce in slow scrolling.
One of the most interesting of speed Lee is his ability to pick up a coin from the hand of man. Usually this is happening so – Lee gave a coin in the hand of the man, and then departed on two feet. After that, he told the man, so he closed his hand as soon as he sees that Bruce moved.
When people notice the rapid movement of Bruce Lee, he closed his hand and felt it round object. However, complacency quickly resolved when people noticed that Lee is smiling and holding a coin. After that, it turned out that Lee had time to replace the coin to the other in just a second. It was the last thing fans saw before their head exploded with anger. It is no wonder that Lee died young – it is clear that for him going to two times faster than for others.
He was too fast for the cameras
The fact that the movement of Lee was so fast that it had to use a camera with a larger number of frames per second, repeated very often. This is the truth. However, for some reason, people miss the most interesting aspect of this.
When first encountering this problem, Lee starred in “The Green Hornet» (Green Hornet), and noticed that all the scenes in which he fought, looked as if he just stood still and dropped his hands in front of him. For some reason the producer of the series considered that a minor character with magical powers, is not very interesting – so he asked Lee to move slowly, which helped, but Bruce still looked blurry. Lee was so fast that when he had to slow down, he looked like a blur. This is the first time that such a proposal is described by something other than an eating zhirdyaya.
He dislocated his shoulder slap Man
If you say that someone has superchelovecheskie ability to show his worth with a hand that will be immediately noticeable as far as it exceeds the average person. But if this is Bruce Lee, that’s probably to show how it is superior to the master of martial arts.
As previously mentioned, Bruce needed special training equipment, capable to cope with his power. However, sometimes he sparred with people stupid enough to come close to Bruce Lee to within striking distance. This distance was the way the entire area of the State in which at any point in his life lived Bruce Lee.
In one of these sparring Bruce dislocated arm of her partner. When he was reproached for this, Bruce was embarrassed as he said “it was not even a hit, and a slap.” Read it again: Bruce was so much stronger than ordinary people, that he could dislocate his shoulder something that he considered a light slap. What happened when it did not limit the force of its impact? Well …
From his punches people literally flew up in the air
Despite the time that he paid training and development of its strength, Bruce Lee rarely showed his true power. Mainly due to the fact that, as history shows, it could hurt people just standing next to them.
However, Bruce had one trick that he liked to use. One of the most favorite things Bruce was his training shield, which he always carried with him. His favorite “prank” was to ask a person to hold the shield and let it hit. In the days when Bruce Lee was alive, the owners of funeral homes in advance just in case the headstones were prepared with these words. Force, which he put into the punch, varied, but some of his punches people raised in the air.
Given that Bruce could not force people to overcome Earth’s gravity simple stroke, it is not surprising that God noticed this and asked him to come to paradise as a personal bodyguard.
