I am pretty sure you have heard of Jason Scott Lee right? Well I did myself. I watched some of his movies back when I was a little kid. One of my favorite movies he played was Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. At that age, I was so into Bruce Lee. I even ended up believing that Jason Scott Lee was Bruce Lee. I do have to admit: among all the people who played Bruce Lee, Jason Scott Lee is probably the best Bruce Lee clone I have ever seen. But does that mean he is a Martial Artist? Absolutely not. I heard he is a certified instructor of Jeet Kune Do which I believe it is completely garbage. How could you claim to be a practitioner of Jeet Kune Do if Bruce Lee did not even allow you to use that label? Is that not disrespectful? Claim your own label for Goodness Sake! That's one of the main problem I have with these so called Jeet Kune Do practitioner. Despite the fact that I am criticizing him for using the Jeet Kune Do label, I have to say that I respect him more than most of these so called Jeet Kune Do practitioners.
First, he is very athletic. Before playing in the movie Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, he was trained as a gymnasts. Therefore, he has a solid foundation to even perform these techniques. You do not see many people who are athletic in the Martial Arts. They are too lazy to even do one pushup. However, Jason Scott Lee is strong enough to even walk on his hands. Does he take steroids or anything? That I do not know. However rather than judge, we should strive towards achieving his fitness level without having to take muscle enhancing drugs or supplements.
Second, I believe the combative techniques were very well performed. It may not be close to the level of Bruce Lee and Shi Zu but very well done. He was required to yell almost like Bruce Lee because he was playing as Bruce Lee. That's what actors do: they pretend to be somebody they are not. Thus, he would need to appear to be Bruce Lee as much as possible.
Finally, I have to respect because spiritually, he is at a way higher level than any MMA fighters! If you listen to this video you will understand what I am talking about.
Jason Scott Lee may not be a martial artist, but he is definitely closer to the real Martial Arts than anybody who participate in competition sports.... All I can say is listen to him in the video and give your feedback. That's all I am expecting. I do not expect to agree with me but I do expect you to learn from the video and determine whether or not there is some truth to what he is saying. Enjoy.
