Bruce Lee Vs Jet Li Vs Jackie Chan

Bruce Lee Vs Jet Li Vs Jackie Chan

Now this would make for an entertaining match until Bruce got bored and decided to end things. I am a fan of all three – Chan for his entertaining fight sequences in all his movies, they’re extremely creative. Li has more of an acrobatic style and obvious mastery of his art.

But…

Lee is the Master – onscreen and off as well. All the available arts available at the time weren’t enough for him so he went out can created his own style. Simply put, Lee is a Legend that all other martial artists aspire to.

    Bruce Lee is the greatest martial artist ever to grace the cinema.
    He beat Chuck Norris for goodness sake.

  3. hellatus March 16, 2009 at 6:42 am -      #3

    Well i think that Bruce lee will win considering he beat chuck norris and he is da mastah

  4. hellatus March 16, 2009 at 6:48 am -      #4

    however jackie chan has superior strength towards jet lee and jet lee has speed

    But bruce lee has both of those

    look at this www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLO1YIWQuXE

  5. monokid March 16, 2009 at 6:57 am -      #5

    If we are talking about them when they are in their prime, then i would say
    1. Bruce Lee
    2. Jackie Chan
    3. Jet Li

    Wooooo! My match-up posted!

    Bruce Lee has this in the bag! He reached a level of martial arts that has never been matched, never mind beaten.

  9. Aegis030 March 16, 2009 at 5:59 pm -      #9

    Jet Li is fast but in the end he’s just a dancer who acts.

    I know that Jackie does his own stunts.. I’ve seen him take hits from cars and smile about it. He’s fell several stories and come back to do it again. I imagine he could be dangerous if he chooses to.

    Movie martial arts isn’t real fighting, it’s choreography.

    Bruce actually fought people in real life. He’s fought really good people and won.

    I say Bruce could take ‘em both at the same time.

  10. Vicious 117 March 16, 2009 at 6:53 pm -      #10

    yes well as everyone before me has established, Bruce would take both of them, even at the same time….. even with tony jaa in the mix.

    so skipping details, here is how i think it will work
    (God Status) Bruce Lee

    2nd Jet Li
    3rd Jackie Chan

  11. DX March 17, 2009 at 1:48 am -      #11

    Who else? The master, Bruce Lee.

    1. Bruce Lee = a Legend
    2. Jackie Chan = more experience
    3. Jet Li = new generation

    and 4 and 5 but not mentioned

    4. Chow Yun-Fat
    5. Robin Shou

  12. cyborg pirate ninja jesus March 17, 2009 at 3:59 am -      #12

    i think its a bit of a stretch to say that he will take both at once

    its is just too much to handle for one person hu is a master

    but to take on 2 other masters

  13. Cpt Olimar March 17, 2009 at 10:04 am -      #13

    jackie chan has the best stunts, he does them all without stunt doubles, but he is probably not the best fighter of the three.

  14. Wraith March 17, 2009 at 10:39 am -      #14

    I think Bruce lee would Take it. Jet Li is a master, Jackie chan is a master Improvisor, but Jet Li isnt in his weight Class, and Bruce lee simply out classes Jackie Chan. So my vote’s for Bruce Lee. (however, I have to note that Jackie chan is my favorite of the three)

  15. Matapiojo March 17, 2009 at 10:58 am -      #15

    Why must I repeat myself. Tony Jaa pwns all.

    Flying Knee to the face = its all over!

  16. Marche March 17, 2009 at 10:59 am -      #16

    bruce lee or jet li,but im leaning towards bruce.
    bruce and jet would probably beat up jackie for being the nicest guy in every movie.

  17. x on March 18, 2009 at 9:17 pm -      #17

    Bruce Lee beats them both.

  18. Battra Boy March 19, 2009 at 1:40 pm -      #18

    Bruce Lee is a martial artist legend!

    His skills will never be matched, never mind surpassed. :D

    Bruce Lee used Wing-Chung style of kungfu, a descending discipline of Shaolin. Jackie Chan uses the so-called ‘drunken fist’, which is actually unpredictable. Jet Li is just trying to be cool. So I think the unpredictable speed and accuracy of Jackie Chan is going to flabbergast Bruce Lee. It’ll take long before Lee gets exhausted, but at the end Chan will go for the finishing touch. Bye bye Lee, you get to be second.

    1. Jackie Chan
    2. Bruce Lee
    3. (why participating?) Jet Li

  24. Preston April 8, 2009 at 3:26 am -      #24

    Jet li broke martial arts record and not only that was raised in martial arts by the shalion temples of all sides and thats how he was discovered by his arts and surpassing his masters

  25. Sebastian April 16, 2009 at 11:59 am -      #25

    heres how its played out… jackie chan is eliminated… jet li holds his own for a little, then victoriously Bruce Lee wins because he is the best there ever was, is, and will be.(PERIOD)

  26. storm May 2, 2009 at 10:56 pm -      #26

    1) Jet Li
    2) Jackie Chan
    3) Bruce Lee

    Bruce is a legend and i mean no disrepect, but being the original and a legend does not make you the best.

  27. Battra Boy May 10, 2009 at 9:16 am -      #27

    Actually, Bruce beat Jackie in one of his films. Jackie was en extra.. Bruce kicks him and Jackie flies off the screen defeated. Bruce also K.Oed Chuck Norris. Jackie and Jet got nothing on him.

  28. Terror May 10, 2009 at 11:25 am -      #28

    Bruce Lee reached a level of martial arts that has never been beaten or matched? Says who? Other than being a great entertainer, and someone who honed his power and speed, what makes Lee so special? Are you guys buying into the “legend” or looking at reality here?

    I suggest you do a little studying on Lee’s true history instead of chomping onto the myths. Lee was just a man. He made mistakes, he lost sparring matches, and he had a lot to learn. He changed and evolved his views on fighting theory as he moved forward in his career.

    With all that said, in a real world fight, I do believe Bruce Lee has more real world application of his JKD than the other two. But it wouldn’t be a walk in the park, as martial arts would have very little to do with the fight. What you’d see is a bunch of punches, low height kicks, and attempted take downs. None of the fancy crap you see in Hollywood.

    Heck, there are plenty of modern fighters who would likely take Lee out. Again, he was just a man, who by modern fighting standards has some exploitable weaknesses. (Ground fighting was largely viewed as secondary decades ago, and was not trained to the extent it is today. This would leave him wide open for someone skilled on the matt)

    what a joke!!!!!!!!! during filming of bruce lee’s ‘fists of fury’ and ‘the green hornet’ he was asked to slow down because the camera couldnt pick up his movements!!! jackie and jet cant boast the same feat! bruce was on a whole new level THAT NO OTHER MARTIAL ARTIST HAS ATTAINED TO DATE< AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL!!! my vote is BRUCE TO ONE INCH PUNCH BOTH OF THEM INTO NEXT MILLENIUM

    @mr singh: “what a joke!!!!!!!!! during filming of bruce lee’s ‘fists of fury’ and ‘the green hornet’ he was asked to slow down because the camera couldnt pick up his movements!!! jackie and jet cant boast the same feat! ”

    Maybe because technology is better today then it was during Lee’s time. We can get pictures of a Sparrow flapping it’s wings now.

    jackie(much as i love him) would go down first. then between lee and li, there would be a ridiculously long fight. but then lee would snap his neck and leave him in the gutter.

    couldent Bruce Lee do a one finger push-up…O.o

  42. ahmad February 9, 2010 at 4:12 am -      #42

    i think Bruce is the best,but i think Jet li is strongest.And Chan is famous,too.

  43. C.A.W. February 12, 2010 at 2:53 am -      #43

    The main difference between these three martial arts is that Jackie Chan is primarily an actor first and a martial artist second, while he does know many Chinese styles and is quite proficient in them, his training was geared so that he could make his fight scenes appear more authentic. Bruce Lee and Jet Li however were trained as martial artists first and their acting came later, and both have mastery in several forms of Chinese style individually aswell as the ability to combine styles to varying degrees of profiency. Another thing is that while all three are great martial artist in their own right, Bruce Lee brings something that neither Chan or Li bring. Lee unlike many traditional martial artists, who focused solely or at least largley on the techniques and learning the spiritual aspects of their arts without a large regard for athleticism. This was an ideal that Lee rejected and focused much of his training in bringing his body to the peak of physical fitness. Through his training he was able perform feats of strength and speed that have rarely been matched in either the strength or speed aspect but not both. While there may not be a huge disparagment between the skill levels of the three artists, their is a recordable disparagment between Lee’s level of physical level that he has over the other two as well as his ability to combine that with his already high level skill level.

    While many of the styles that each know have some level of take down techniques and subission moves none of them had any real training in ground fighting. So while many contemporary fighters are far more proficient in ground style like Jiu-jitsu, someone like Lee would not be completely defensless considering the skill he has with his physical prowess would make stepping into the ring with him a daunting feat for any fighter.

    personally in this match i could see bruce going down first.

    he is good but wont be able to handle them both at once..

    they will gang up on him to take the strongest out of the picture…and then i suppose jet will win

  45. gungfu1 February 22, 2010 at 4:25 am -      #45

    Great Topic…..but the ground fighting posts & single style about Bruce Lee are not true! Bruce is crowned by the MMA as being the father of Mixed martial arts because he was truly the first famous person to realize it’s advantages. If you really study his history he wanted to find the best in every style and use it in his own way. He studied Judo/wrestling under famed champion Gene Lebell…..the guy who wrestled bears! Genes methods are used TODAY by famous mma champs! He demonstrates these abilities in the beginning of Enter the dragon! Bruce is the ONLY guy here who studied many style’s…..wing chun with yip man, kali & escrima from the philippines & malaysia under best friend Dan inosanto. See Bruce use the double sticks in Enter the Dragon & question that ….LOL! Then there is Bruce’s Power & speed via his physical abilities. Anyone who knew him will tell you he was that impressive. Kicking a 300 lb. bag and breaking the chains, could punch at 500th’s of a second! This is all true….no hollywood BS! He has a real reputation of wasting guys in real fights and this is accounted for by the champions he trained. You can read about it how he trained Joe lewis, Chuck Norris, and Mike Stone. This list goes on and on. Bruce hands down!!!!! As far as Jet and Jackie….I know masters who would say the young Jackie because of better form and power…but today Jet has the power!

  46. mybunkey March 10, 2010 at 5:21 pm -      #46

    As much as I like Bruce Lee and I think Jackie Chan has got to be near bullet proof in reality based on the real life stunts he does and sometimes pays the price of failure for. He’s up and going within minutes where other stunt men would be calling it a day. JET: He is on a playing field of his own. The story of directors asking Bruce to slow his moves down so they could be filmed: Watch Jet! There are moves where all you see are traces! Jet’s moves are more believable in most of his films. He does pack a powerful punch and it blows my mind how he can fight using only one hand in many of his fights against all but the real challenges for him. I studied Jujitsu for many years (I hold a 1 st degree black belt) and watched his moves carefully. A legend is difficult to overcome, but not impossible to surpass. Roger Marris was a legend who was soon placed in the shadows by Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa. It was been found later that they both were on steroids but the damage has been done to the legend! Jet Li is a new generation. I saw him in Lethal Weapon first as a villan and was impressed but had the “BOOO” mentality because he was the bad guy! I saw him in the” Protector” and realized he was a person you could really like and was easy to warm up to. I never got that feeling with Bruce. I liked Bruce, but never really felt connected with him. Jackie Chan was easy to relate to and was an instant hit with me. He was warm and funny. He made what he did believable in the majority of his performances. If I were to line them up in terms of how they would fair in a real fight: I would have to give Jet top honors
    Bruce second and Jackie third. Jackie I think could take the most abuse of the three.
    Watch “Unleashed” Jet does an excellent job in his performance. Watch the commentary where he is interviewed. Jet is a very down to earth person as well as quite humble. He can play a serious role pretty well and you can see the improvement in each succesive movie he does. Unfortunately they didn’t do that with Bruce. The directors never let you know the Bruce Lee who was behind the posturing, boxing and bouncing and, the distracting noise he would make to throw his opponent off guard. Romeo Must Die has a few funny scenes…the football scene will get you laughing and will bring him closer to your heart. None the less, GOD BLESS THEM ALL. I pray that Jackie continues to make movies. I pray that Jet continues to do the same. You know that Jet has a heart…..he has established a fund for victems of natural disasters after have been a survivor of that massive sunami that hit South Asia killing thousands in it’s wake.

  47. Ramrod March 24, 2010 at 10:41 pm -      #47

    I think the fights would b close. They all know various styles but id giv Bruce Lee the edge cause he studied all fighting styles, taking and using only the most effecient moves. Then creating his JKD style which is not only physical, but mental and spiritual. That being said along with his superior physical conditinning, a true balance of strength and speed.. Bruce would beat both of them

  48. Darwolf March 25, 2010 at 1:44 am -      #48

    I think the fight will go Jackie and Jet going after Bruce. Bruce taking a few hits then his shirt comes off then Jackie and Jet would get beat down. I mean Bruce before he done movies he fought in the back streets, underground and roof tops of Hong Kong.

  49. Brack April 17, 2010 at 10:19 am -      #49

    I find it interesting that everybody seems to be comparing the American movies starring these fighters. Some of the most amazing “fights” at least on film can be found in their Asian movies. I am primarily referring to Jet and Jackie. However, everything I have read would lead me to believe that it would be Bruce, Jet and then Jackie.

    Big fan of all 3 though.

  50. yusuf June 1, 2010 at 10:46 am -      #50

    It will be good if we ask jet & jacky for their opinion

  51. zane June 6, 2010 at 11:17 pm -      #51

    Bruce dedicated his life to physical conditioning and learning he wouldent use flashy cool moves, but efficient ones that would knock someone down and maim them, he was more interested in that then blocks and twirls ” like water flowing, or a sculpture where the unessasry is chipped away”, he fought real masters and gangs and has records still to be beat. while i think jet li is cooler and jackie is hilarious, hands down bruce lee destroys them.

  52. the Werewolf June 23, 2010 at 10:21 pm -      #52

    Ican’t stand this any more blah blah blah blahhhh. Face it peaple Bruce is the master and could beat the two

  53. Gloria June 24, 2010 at 4:19 pm -      #53

    It’s sort of hard to compare them because they’re all meant to do different things. For instance, Bruce Lee and Jet Li are most experienced in actual martial arts, while Jackie Chan is more involved in stunt choreography and improv. I respect all of them though. :)
    Btw, it’s interesting to note that Jackie Chan was Bruce Lee’s stunt double in a movie before. :O

  54. manu June 29, 2010 at 6:51 am -      #54

    they are the reasons to have martial arts becom popular

  55. Thomas Gregg (T-DAWG) July 20, 2010 at 7:44 pm -      #55

    oi man, i mean people. Bruce lee is the man, the legend, the everything. Jet li is Alright but, if Bruce lee was out of the game (the versing stuff) i would go for him. and Jackie chan, he can kick but (hardly, because he gets kicked and punched back in movies ALL the time.

  56. Leon July 21, 2010 at 4:01 pm -      #56

    1- Jet Li
    2-Bruce Lee
    3- Jackie Chan

  57. A July 31, 2010 at 11:28 am -      #57

    Someone said Jet Li is a dancer who fights! My God! Check your facts in wikipedia.
    Jet Li actually learned several types of Wu Shu and won prizes before coming to film.
    My vote goes to Bruce Lee though not only because he is a myth, a legend but also he portrayed martial arts for real, no tricks. Also he has fought real life fights in his early life like a street fighter. But the one he fought in San Fransisco to establish his school was not well, as said in his documentary by his wife.

  58. kingofkungfu September 28, 2010 at 2:04 pm -      #58

    Overall jackie chan has the most talent, he can do everything, even yuen woo ping said “when making a film dont exspect the fighters to do it in one take, unless ur jackie chan” – which is so true.

    In a fight (real fight) probably bruce lee, but jackie is great at picking up anything and using it as a weapon….. overall jackie chan is defo the biggest star out of all 3 you just have to watch his work from the late 70′s until late 90′s.

  59. Mr. Mon October 15, 2010 at 3:17 am -      #59

    Ok, here we go. Drumroll please…JACKIE CHAN. No doubt. Now to explain.
    Jackie Chan Grew up doin this since he was six. His training was literally abusive. He started filming as a stuntman. He still does all his own stunts. He is also, I believe much faster than the other two. Jet Li, although very cool, is a tad bit slower. (and I admit, I don’t know much about him). And Bruce Lee…(please don’t send me hatemail) he’s very over rated. How many of you knew that he NEVER mastered a single martial art form? Not one. He grew impatient with his material and his teachers quit working with him. He then took what he did know and made his own style. The guy guy didn’t even use his nunchucks correctly. Lee lost my respect and his credibility knowing this. Sorry folks.

  60. Mr. Mon October 15, 2010 at 3:18 am -      #60

    Look forward to your comments. Ha.

  61. jason December 5, 2010 at 12:04 pm -      #61

    no offense to jackie or jet but bruce #’s! that is unless the fight takes place in a hardware store, then bruce and jet are hamburger, :-) lol!

  62. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 1:36 pm -      #62

    Really? Your gonna let a hardware store determine the out come? Neither Jackie or Li need random objects to win a fight. I’ll go ahead and say that Bruce is good, but the only thing that made him a legend is Hollywood. They painted a picture for him that was way too large.

  63. jason December 5, 2010 at 2:18 pm -      #63

    yeah he just created his own style of kung fu, he’s def overrated! DUMBASS!

  64. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 2:27 pm -      #64

    He created his own style because he could never master any others.

  65. jason December 5, 2010 at 3:02 pm -      #65

    funny thing that he defeated wong jack man who was considered a master in several forms of gung fu. Aso many of his contemporaries regarded him as one of the all time greats including bob wall, chuck norris, and yes even jackie chan! chan says, “bruce lee is the best”, and “when bruce lee kick you don’t shut your eyes, bc when you shut your eyes you cannot see bruce lee kick,… that’s the fastest you can be.” It’s not just his skill and innovation that make him a master, it’s the fact that every master has a philosophy and Bruce’s was powerful and unique. His physical condition was unparalelled also. And as for the claim that he mastered none and couldn’t use nunchucks I’d like to know where that info came from bc I can’t find it anywhere on the web. If you’ll check out wikipedia, and look for videos with jackie chan talking about bruce lee on metacafe and youtube you’ll see corroberation for my claims here

  66. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 5:10 pm -      #66

    And the funny thing about that is that the match was never filmed. Also, it is still unclear on who won. Some say Lee, some say Wong Jack. Some say there won no winner. Lee even contradicted himself when describing his “win”.
    I think that Lee could have beaten Jackie in his own day. But Jackie has lived longer to gain more knowledge and experience. Not to mention he actually finished his training to become a Master. And Li same thing definitely. He was beating people twice his age when he was only 11 with his Wushu.
    And of course he got praise from people. No one wants to mock a legend. I could go more into that, but I won’t.
    With the nunchucks, it’s not something you need to read. It’s something you see in his movies.
    And lastly, the part where he never mastered an art…just look up some bios. It will show you that his teachers got tired of his lack of patience and refused to work with him(as I already said). It was after that that he began his own style.

  67. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 5:15 pm -      #67

    My ultimate point is this. Was he a bad martial artist? Absolutely not! He is the reason we have martial arts movies in America. He was cool, fast and flashy. Not to mention ripped like no other. But I do not think that he was quite what people think of him.

  68. jodarius December 5, 2010 at 5:45 pm -      #68

    Bruce lee had attained the rank of master in multiple forms of martial arts, including Wing Chun, a devastating form. He studied ground techniques and submission, which neither Jackie and Jet studied. All three studied from early childhood, so they all had been immersed since childhood.

    Bruce could hit faster and harder than most professional heavy weight boxers. His stamina and power outclassed both of these two. Bruce was more than hype, he was a master.

    Mr. Mon, are you a martial artist? Do you have the knowledge to state Bruce misused his nun-chucks and failed to master his arts?

    As to Jet winning WuShu tournements, WuShu is designated as a theatrical martial art. He did however master several form of gung fu as well, but being a master of WuShu does nothing for true fighting.

    I read of an exhibiton where Bruce and Muhammad Ali faced off, Bruce landed 14 hits to Ali’s 0. This was him facing a man who hit people for a living.

    first of all the only formal martial arts training lee recieved was from his father in wu style tai chi chuan, from sifu yip man in wing chun gung fu, and in western boxing (he knocked out 3 time english champion gary elms in the 3rd round). any other training he had was informal. nowhere can I find any evidence that a teacher “quit working with him” as you say. and who says he was a master of any style other than his own? why would he need to be. Just bc he didn’t recieve the formal training that li or chan recieved doesn’t mean he wasn’t a master. He saw no reason to conform to a particular style . Einstein never completed high school, yet you would never question his genius. you say that chan is faster but chan himself says lee is faster. I have searched about 1/2 dozen or so bios and have yet to read a single statement claiming that a teacher quit working with him. every statement made by teachers or other martial artists is giving praise. it seems the only person who considers lee overrated is you. I’m no expert in how to properly use nunchucks so i can’t say he was doing it “right” or not, but haven’t you ever heard the phrase “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” maybe he was doing it his way, or maybe it was a flippin movie choreagraphed to look cool. all i know is you haven’t provided a single shred of evidence to support your opinion. give me a quote, a website, a book something other than your word. are you a martial arts expert, are you a master? if not i need something more than your opinion, bc every expert opinion i can find says that bruce lee is widely regarded as the greatest martial artist of the 20th century, and one of the greatest ever!

    Alright, I’ve been doin a little bit more reading. I may be getting swayed a bit more into liking Lee. Ha. I’m also finding that there are a few different stories on him. Alot that I have not seen yet. The Wikipedia source says that Lee’s instructors quit teaching him for racial reasons. The source that says it was because of his impatience I cannot find, which makes what I said pointless. But yes, the more I read the more I am learning awesome things about him.

    But I do believe that if you put them together in their best peak, Lee would not come up on top. Reason why is time.

    And it looks like Lee did receive formal training under a man named Yip Man and Wong Shun Leung. (Wikipedia).

    And I am a student in both Gung Fu and Tae Kwan Do(Uchido). The BEST way to hold them is at the top, where the rope or chain begins. It provides the most control. Lee held them at the bottom or middle.

    Soooo…is Lee totally awesome? Looking more than I originally thought. Ha.

    actually in case you have forgotten what you said is that chan is “much faster than the other 2″, and lee is “very over rated”, and that lee “never mastered a single martial art form”, and that “the guy didn’t even use his nunchucks correctly”, and “his teachers quit working with him”. none of which you have supported with a single shred of evidence. opinions are opinions and everyone is entitled to one, however solid opinions are based on facts and can be supported by facts. you have only proven to me that you are a jackie chan fanboy. I like all 3 of these guys (and given the choice would probably watch a jet li movie before either of the other 2). but the question was who wins in a fight, and based on all evidence i’ve seen there is no question lee wins. you post statements that are false in order to support an opinion based on an emotional response, and where i’m from we call that bullshit! sorry but i’m gonna call a spade a spade. still ” Look forward to your comments” mr. mon??

  72. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 6:42 pm -      #72

    Yes, I definitely like Jackie Chan the best. No doubt. But to explain why I don’t think Lee would come on top is, like I said, time. I think Chan and Li have more experience having lived longer. They have had more advanced material to learn with. Including Lee’s Jeet Kune Do.
    And I never forget what I’ve said. I also have no problem admitting when I’m wrong. When I said those things I of course said them with the knowledge I then had. Now I know more, and that’s thanks to you. So thanks. Ha.
    All in all, you know your stuff. Good work. You wiped the floor with me. Ha.

    Lee takes this one. Hits too hard and too fast and knows too many techniques as well as a better striker due to learning boxing from Muhammad Ali himself.

    Jackie is really just a dancer. He’s pretty good and fast but current events makes him way to old too take any real hits. Plus he’s slowed a lot in his old age. He’s over 50 after all.

    Li is the second best in this match. Chinese Wushu Champion multiple times. However Wushu isn’t the greatest for striking and is more of a spiritual form of fighting though I’d give it him if he had a Blood Guard. He too is also slower in his old age.

    actually the proof is in the pudding so to speak. We have had mma for 20+ years now. In the begining we had all styles seperate now we have a melding of all styles bc fighters learned not to limit themselves and to take what works from each discipline which is exactly what lee taught. Hell if you think about it lee could be the father of mma. He was certainl about 30 years ahead of the curve. I don’t mean any offense to jet li or jackie chan they are certainly great in their own right but bruce took it to a whole new level. I challenge anyone to simply pay a visit to good ole wikipedia and read about each then decide.

  75. Mr. Mon December 5, 2010 at 10:38 pm -      #75

    I do 100% agree with ya there Jason. The best martial art there can be is the mixed kind. There are ALOT of awesome materials to learn. That’s actually what we are doin. If you can take the best of all styles and put them together, your’e unbeatable. And with the reading I’ve been doin today(thanks again Jason. Ha.) Lee was definitely doin that. I think I may have been converted.

    anybody who knows what it means by Jeet Kune Do(art of intercepting fists), then you must knw what it means then decide upon this.Master Brucelee, after studying phylosophy for quite a long time later he came up with this game, where the fighter fight by trying to understand his enemy and then destroy him by intercepting his her fist… this is what master lee said… “Having no way as the way, having no limit as the limit”. he used to tell Chuck-Norris, “be water, water can take any form any where. there is no way like Japanese way of fighting nor chines way of fighting is the best, unless a person has four legs and three arms that’s when he/she can fight different”.. With all this you can’t tell me that Jackie Chan or Jet Li is the best than Bruce Lee. Master Lee used to study and practice, Jackie and Jet Li only practice.. BRUCE LEE THE BEST OF ALL.

    “Bruce Lee used Wing-Chung style of kungfu, a descending discipline of Shaolin. Jackie Chan uses the so-called ‘drunken fist’, which is actually unpredictable. Jet Li is just trying to be cool. So I think the unpredictable speed and accuracy of Jackie Chan is going to flabbergast Bruce Lee. It’ll take long before Lee gets exhausted, but at the end Chan will go for the finishing touch. Bye bye Lee, you get to be second.”
    somone needs to do there research a little better bruce lee developed his own martial arts mixing dozens of martial arts “jeet kun do” mixes the best parts of every martial arts. jackie chan on the other hand doesnt know any one form of martial arts he was taught everything he knows for the sake of performance. you can in fact see traces of drunken fist in his style but he doesnt actually know a specific martial art. meanwhile bruce lee was a fighter since he was young.

    oh and not sure if this record still stands but at the time bruce lee was the youngest person to ever win the ed parker tournament

  79. Rhododendron September 24, 2012 at 3:34 am -      #79

    I’d got with bruce only because muhamed ali isn’t in the match(bruce said that was the guy he saw as his superior and he wanted to one day fight but was afraid he’d lose)

  80. ka-tet19 September 24, 2012 at 3:37 am -      #80

    in a boxing match maybe ali could take him. i wouldnt put him in a match in which lee could use his entire martial arts though like an mma match.

  81. Mr. Mon December 10, 2012 at 4:49 pm -      #81

    Why is Ali even in this discussion???
