Nokia N96 Bruce Lee Limited Edition

Bruce took to wearing track outfits around the 68 or 72 Olympics. Not sure this is not photo-shopped.. Some of the ping-pong ball tracking is strange.

Not sure this is not photo-shopped.

I'm 100% convinced that it IS. Entertaining anyway.

Actually he was very fast, there were a series of tests of his eye hand speed and it was significantly faster THAN US HUMANS.

I watch the movie a couple times before I felt I could "see" the error in the timing of the ball & nunchuck (sic).


Bruce Lee's Physical feats

Lee's phenomenal fitness meant he was capable of performing many exceptional physical feats. The following list are the physical feats that are documented and supported by reliable sources.

Lee's striking speed from three feet with his hands down by his side reached five hundredths of a second.

Lee could spring a 235 lb (107 kg) opponent 15 feet (4.6 meters) away with a 1 inch punch.

Lee's combat movements were at times too fast to be captured on film at 24fps, so many scenes were shot in 32fps to put Lee in slow motion. Normally martial arts films are sped up.

Lee could perform push ups using only his thumbs

Lee would hold an elevated v-sit position for 30 minutes or longer.

In a speed demonstration, Lee could snatch a dime off a person's open palm before they could close it, and leave a penny behind.

Lee performed one-hand push-ups using only the thumb and index finger

Lee performed 50 reps of one-arm chin-ups.

From a standing position, Lee could hold a 125 lb (57 kg) barbell straight out.

Lee could break wooden boards 6 inches (15 cm) thick.

Lee performed a side kick while training with James Coburn and broke a 150-lb (68 kg) punching bag

Lee could cause a 300-lb (136 kg) bag to fly towards and thump the ceiling with a side kick.

In a move that has been dubbed "Dragon Flag", Lee could perform leg lifts with only his shoulder blades resting on the edge of a bench and suspend his legs and torso perfectly horizontal midair.

Lee could thrust his fingers through unopened steel cans of Coca-Cola, at a time before cans were made of the softer aluminum metal.

Lee could use one finger to leave dramatic indentations on pine wood.


Besides that,, Bruce is the only person to ever beat Chuck,, in "the way of the dragon", 1972..

There is a little more going on here than pure fitness level.

I know because I have experienced first hand one of these punches from one of Bruce Lee's protege's... the power is simply amazing and has taken several people almost their entire life time to be able to re-create it.

Also make no mistake this is no push, if you experienced this without any sort of protective padding between you and the strike it would break your sternum.
