Bruce Lee is easily regarded as one of the history’s most formidable fighters. From his status as a movie star to his recorded feats of a 2-inch punch, blindfolded sparring with a karate master, and the amazing 2 finger push up, Bruce Lee was truly a great martial artist. Even the other greats have recognized him as the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time.) Mike Tyson himself, one of the best heavyweight boxers of all time, said in an interview that Bruce Lee was “the ultimate warrior.”
From his stints with Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris, and Sammo Hung, Bruce was truly one of the pioneers of spreading martial arts around the globe. He broke traditions by teaching his craft to people of all genders, cultures, and races.
A recent viral video of the karate master reveals the only known footage of Bruce Lee in an actual fight. This video showcases what martial arts were like back then. Both participants are strapped and padded in protective wear and headgear.
Bruce’s unfortunate opponent is supposedly Ted Wong, one of Bruce’s very own students. Ted, who was known as one of Bruce’s top students, was a martial arts practitioner up to his time of death in 2010 in Hong Kong when he was 73 years old.
In the video, Bruce can be seen in an auditorium-like setting where a rectangle is marked off for the two fighters. As they begin, you can see the fighters feeling each other out before attempting a strike.
Bruce nimbly dodges out of the way and lands a flush counter strike. His head snaps back and Bruce extends his arms out as if asking his student if he wants to keep on fighting.
Later on, in the short video, Bruce dodges out of the way and lands two straight punches to the face which stuns and stumbles his student. At the end, Bruce strikes with such precision, force and speed that he catches his student flush in the face, ending the fight. This footage is more evidence that proves Bruce is the greatest of all time.
