Masters of the Martial Arts

To become a master of anything, a person must dedicate their entire life to it. You must live and breathe the very thing you wish to master.

The goal of this page is to introduce you to some people who have done that very thing.

These people include such fighting masters as Bruce Lee, the late great martial artist and film star of the early 70's.

Mas Oyama, a great karate master who could defeat any person who challenged him with a single blow and he fought bulls without any weapons.

The great Yip Man, first instructor of Bruce Lee and the man responsible for bringing Wing Chun Kung Fu up to the level it is today.

So scroll on down and check out this page of Martial Arts Masters!

Bruce Lee - Martial Arts Master / Movie Star

Who was Bruce Lee?

Bruce Lee is such an icon that almost every single person has heard of his name. Bruce Lee created his fighting style called Jeet Kune Do by taking the best from every system he could learn, analyzing everything down to the last period, and using what worked in a real situation for real people. The style known as Jeet Kune Do is a very advanced system of solving problems that you may face! It may not always be with your fist either! Jeet Kune Do is more of a way of life, but not in a monk sort of way!

Many people today still practice the Jeet Kune Do style of fighting and life that Bruce Lee is responsible for creating.
