In 1962 author Greglon Lee's father, martial arts expert James Yimm Lee, joined forces with the future superstar Bruce Lee (1940-1973) to form the Jun Fan Gung-fu Institute, now considered the birthplace of Jeet Kune Do. Their relationship was crucial in Lee's progression from unknown student to celebrated master, shaping Lee's ideology and outlook on the martial arts for years to come. Using extensive interviews with dozens of Bruce's students and contemporaries as well as anecdotes based on rare documents and family history, the authors present an engaging picture of Bruce Lee as an extraordinarily talented young man who was also a warm and caring person. This insider's look at Bruce Lee's formative years also outlines the development of Lee's legendary skills between 1962 and 1965, an era previously unchronicled.

About the Author:

Sid Campbell of Oakland, California, is the founding president of the World Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate-Do & Kobudo Association, and helped introduce the art of karate to the Western world. Ranked as 9th dan, Campbell has taught over 15,000 students, helped award 800 black belts, and supervises over 48 schools around the world.

Greglon Yimm Lee is a practitioner of Jeet Kune Do, a promoter of civic functions, and a co-producer of martial arts instructional videotapes. Lee is an active member of the JKD world and resides in Berkeley, California.

Synopsis:

While much has been written about Bruce Lee as a martial arts instructor and as an actor, very little has ever appeared about the years he spent training with James Yimm Lee, a talented kung fu stylist. This training period left a lasting impression on the "Dragon's" ideology and shaped his outlook on the martial arts for years to come. This title offers an in-depth account of the emergence of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do.
