It’s been over 43 years since the world lost what many consider to be the most influential martial artist of all time. Bruce Lee was “credited with helping to change the way Asians were presented in American films” because Asians were often cast to play mostly insignificant, comical roles in Hollywood films back in that era. He truly was a pioneer of his time.

Bruce is mostly known as a martial artist and an actor and is remembered for his starring roles in five major films: The Big Boss (1971), Fist of Fury (1972), Way of the Dragon (1972), Enter the Dragon (1973), and The Game of Death (1978). All five are classic films that had a major impact on the industry back in the 1970s and continue to be glorified to this day.

Unfortunately, Bruce was involved in only 5 films as his career was cut short by his untimely death at the young age of 32 years old. It was a shocking and devastating loss that many still cannot comprehend. His influence and impact not only on the film industry but also on society as a whole will transcend time. Movies like Kill Bill, video games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, and many modern day fighters in various combat sports exemplify how so many have tried to emulate the great Bruce Lee.
