What is Bruce Lee’s Kung Fu?

Written by Lak Loi, Master Your Life


Many believe that ‘Kung Fu’ just refers to Chinese martial arts and combative styles, systems, methods, and so on. This is INCORRECT!

The meaning of ‘Kung Fu’ or ‘Gung Fu’ is: –

“To develop expertise or excellence in skills and abilities through hard work and practice over time.”

That means you can have Kung Fu in anything, so long as you are excellent at it.

For example: –

•       Bruce Lee had the Kung Fu of martial artistry and gave the most exciting performances on the big screen, introducing martial arts to the western world with his blockbuster movie ‘Enter The Dragon’ in 1973, earning over $25 million dollars in the US, and estimated at over $200 million dollars worldwide;

•       Albert Einstein had the Kung Fu of physics, having discovered the theory of relativity amongst a plethora of other profound scientific discoveries, having won the Nobel Prize in 1921 for the Photoelectric Effect and his research in Theoretic physics; and

•       Usain Bolt has the Kung Fu of 100m sprinting having won Gold in the 2012 Olympics.

You get the idea, THAT’S RIGHT!

Here at JKD London, we are continuously striving to develop the quality of our Jun Fan Gung Fu – Jeet Kune Do teachings in our school, and the best way to develop excellence is to best understand the continually changing goals of our students to help be the pointer to your truth the best we can.
