By Ruan Van Zijl

The famous martial artist, philosopher, and actor Bruce Lee was born on the 27th of November 1940 in China Town, San Francisco. He lived a short and very powerful life. He is remembered as the figure that popularized Kung Fu around the world. He grew up in Hong Kong but later moved to the United States to study philosophy at the University of Washington. He taught martial arts for some of Hollywood’s leading men at his martial arts school.

It was at this time that his acting career flourished as he first starred in The Green Hornet. He later starred in some of the most famous martial arts movies of all time including Enter the Dragon and Way of the Dragon.

He passed away in 1973 from a cerebral edema after he had an allergic reaction to pain medication when he was only 33 years old.
