UFC fighter Dan Hardy finds inspiration at Bruce Lee's grave

SEATTLE - Dan Hardy was caught by an emotional punch he didn't see coming.

The Englishman who dyes his Mohawk red and bears the nickname "The Outlaw" was at a cemetery here, seated in front of the grave of Bruce Lee.

"I owe him a lot," Hardy said.

He stopped, clenched his jaw and waited to keep the tears from overflowing.

"He helped a lot through my journey here," Hardy said.

Turns out there is a soulful side to fighting, one that Hardy embodies quite poignantly. He spent years taking martial-arts classes as a kid. He traveled to Northern China to train for two months with Shaolin monks at the age of 20. And on Thursday he went to the grave of one of the most famous martial artists and, by chance, met Lee's close friend, Taky Kimura.

The result was an afternoon that was unexpectedly moving for Hardy.

"I don't want this to sound disrespectful," he said. "I kind of treated it as a bit of a sightseeing kind of thing, to see Bruce Lee's grave. But to be here, I kind of got something else from it."

Hardy, 28, has become one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's most exciting fighters, someone with heavy hands and a sharp wit. On Saturday at KeyArena, he will fight Anthony Johnson in the second-to-last bout of the evening and one that very well may be the most entertaining. ("UFC Live" airs at 10 p.m. EDT on Spike TV.)

But on Thursday, Hardy set out like a tourist to see the grave of a man who died nine years before Hardy was born. Lee's legacy, though, spans generations.

"To contribute so much, to be inspiring people that were born many years after him, is just amazing," Hardy said. "We all aspire to something like that."

For all the tough talk and head kicks of mixed martial arts, there is a spiritual side to this business. It requires discipline and demands respect, and somewhere at the core of every fighter is the desire to test and improve himself.

Hardy read books by Lee. He watched DVDs. And Lee was a large part of Hardy's training with his grandfather, who died last year.

Hardy began taking martial-arts classes at the age of 6 because he loved the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." He kept training as he grew up, moving on to taekwondo, then kickboxing.

Before training with the Shaolin monks in China, he had been an art student at Nottingham University, never leaving home for an extended period. Suddenly he was on the other side of the globe, in a whole different world.

"This was staying in an old castle on the side of a mountain, training in a forest," Hardy said. "It almost seems more like a movie that I watched than something I did myself."

It may be hard to see the UFC's eight-sided cage as the modern embodiment of ancient fighting traditions, but elements of different fighting disciplines are woven throughout the sport.

"The art is within the fights themselves," Hardy said. "I'm an athlete, but first and foremost I'm a martial artist."

Anyone who doubts that should consider the reaction of Kimura, who was one of Lee's closest friends and the best man at his wedding. By chance, Kimura was at his friend's grave Thursday when Hardy arrived and was only too happy to meet him.

It was a reminder, Kimura said, of just how strong his friend's legacy truly is.

"Even after all these years that Bruce has been gone, it just brings it back into focus again," Kimura said. "Because Bruce was a guy that was one of the greatest martial artists on the face of the earth."

It's that legacy that moved Hardy to tears Thursday.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck check out the new enterbay figures:

HD Masterpiece Bruce Lee 70th Anniversary Edition (Limited Edition) so realistic and from one of my fave movies all time!! Fists of Fury!





! 245 BUCKS WHAT THE!!

Bruce Lee : Behind the Scene Edition Real Masterpiece (Limited)




US$445.99 :shocked

Quote from: YesAsia
Enterbay swings for the fences with their latest Bruce Lee collectible. The Bruce Lee: Behind the Scene Real Masterpiece is a Limited Edition 1:6 scale action figure depicting the "Little Dragon" from his final, partially-completed film Game of Death. As expected, the figure comes clothed in the iconic yellow tracksuit Bruce wore during the climactic series of duels – but that's just the beginning for what could be the most impressive action figure of Bruce Lee ever made.

 Enterbay has developed a new poseable action figure body with a special rubber coating for a realistic skin-like texture. The figure can be displayed with or without shirt, and also with one of two heads! The "Battle-Damaged" head features an intense-looking expression with poseable eyes courtesy of Enterbay's "E-Vision" system. The alternative head depicts a smiling expression, the headsculpt perfectly capturing Bruce's charismatic, confident smile. In addition, the figure comes with seven pairs of interchangeable hands and two versions of his yellow tracksuit, one clean and the other "Battle-Damaged." Both suits are made with real fabrication for a more authentic feel.

 Rounding out the collectible is a treasure trove of accessories, including some props seen in the film, like Bruce's yellow nunchuks (with case), and also his green bamboo stick. The figure can be posed against a wooden background stage along with many "Behind-the-Scene" accessories, including a studio stage light (with working USB-powered led light), a 70s-style handheld film camera, a wooden Director's Chair, a vintage megaphone and a movie clapperboard. Comes with figure stand in deluxe numbered packaging, limited to only 5000 sets worldwide! Final product may vary slightly from pictured prototype. An officially licensed product of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC.


If ever I had some sheflspace, i'd put this with a Guan Yu figure :brucelee:

Bruce Lee Museum Put on Hold

Efforts to build a Bruce Lee museum in the late kung fu movie star’s hometown of Hong Kong have been stalled again.

Fans have been calling for an official tribute to the screen icon for years. Their hopes appeared to be answered two years ago when the Hong Kong government and the owner of Mr. Lee’s former home reached an agreement to convert the property — a two-story house currently used as an hourly love motel — into a museum.

But the Hong Kong government said Sunday that negotiations with the owner, businessman Yu Pang-lin, have broken down.

“Despite our efforts, we are unable to reach a consensus with the property owner over the scope of the restoration,” the government said in a statement.

The statement did not elaborate.

An operator who answered the phone at Mr. Yu’s offices in the southern Chinese city Shenzhen on Sunday said that his staff wasn’t in.

Wong Yiu-keung, president of the Hong Kong Bruce Lee Club, said Mr. Yu made unreasonable demands, such as wanting to set up his own offices in the museum.

“Mr. Yu made such a high-profile gesture by donating the property, and yet we now realize those are not his intentions. We are very disappointed. I don’t understand why he backtracked,” Mr. Wong told The Associated Press in a phone interview.

Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, who was also involved in the project, didn’t immediately respond to an email sent to a publicist for the Bruce Lee Foundation seeking comment. Shannon Lee had also been raising funds for a museum in Seattle, where her father studied and taught martial arts.

The Hong Kong government said the Bruce Lee artifacts it had collected for the planned museum will be used for an exhibit at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum that is expected to launch in late 2012.

Mr. Lee became a source of Chinese pride by portraying characters who defended the Chinese and the working class from oppressors in films like “Return of the Dragon.” He died in Hong Kong in 1973 at age 32 from swelling of the brain.

The late actor has been honored with a statue on Hong Kong’s Avenue of Stars, a waterfront promenade featuring the hand prints of the southern Chinese territory’s noted actors.

News of the shelved museum plans was first reported by the South China Morning Post on Sunday.

Bruce Lee’ signature fragrances launched

Shannon Lee, daughter of legend Bruce Lee along with French company, Chkoudra Paris and the local partner Shaikh Mohd. Saeed Establishment, launched Signature Bruce Lee fragrances in Dubai.

The fragrances are targeted at men and will be manufactured in France to be distributed in many countries.

Chkoudra Paris, which specialises in prestigious brands and licences, has partnered with Bruce Lee Enterprises to create the first perfume collection under the Bruce Lee brand.

Speaking at the launch, Lee said, "I am delighted to be associated with Chkoudra Paris and launch our product across other regions. Globally we will be announcing several new initiatives, events and plans for 2012 to keep the powerful legacy of my father, Bruce Lee alive.”

Targeted at the male audience, the brand has currently three fragrances: ‘Be Water’, ‘Don’t Think, Feel’, and ‘Anger Blinds’.

"The main values for the perfumes are derived from Bruce Lee’s real life personality. The product will be competitively priced to reach out to the masses, especially people who actively practice sport, quality conscious connoisseurs and fans of Bruce Lee," she added.

Lee is the highly active CEO of Bruce Lee Enterprises seeking to preserve, perpetuate and educate people about Bruce Lee’s life example, philosophies and Jeet Kune Do, a martial art and life philosophy founded by the legendary martial artist.

Bruce Lee was named as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Important People of the Century as one of the greatest heroes and icons.

Mahmoud Chkaoudara, CEO of Chkoudra Paris, said, "We are honored to have established a relationship with Bruce Lee Enterprises and are looking forward to spread the signature Bruce Lee fragrances across the globe."

"‘Some people are born strong’, is the idea behind the new Bruce Lee fragrances. The fragrance ‘Don’t think, Feel’ is designed for self confident men full of inner strength. This is a sentimental fragrance that emphasizes originality and style."

"The second fragrance ‘Be Water’ is created for men who want to differentiate themselves by being calm and reactive like an echo. This perfume is a dedication for men wanting to be remembered as charismatic, stylish and elegant," he explained.

The third fragrance ‘Anger Blinds’ is a unique perfume that is aimed at the trendy and sensual audience, he added.

Shaikh Mohd Ali Saeed, CEO of the Shaikh Mohd Saeed Establishment said as per a recent study the Middle East fragrance market, currently valued at $3.5 billion, will be one of the fastest growing segments of the industry worldwide in the next five years.

“In addition to increased demand for generic fragrances, we believe that celebrity perfumes will set the pace for rapid market expansion. Men’s perfume category is projected to grow at a rapid pace, underpinning today’s male’s desire to both look and smell good," he remarked.

“With a mixture of both traditional Arabian perfumes and well known international brands, the Middle East Fragrance industry is at a significant point in its growth trajectory," observed Satish Chandwani, head of Sales, Shaikh Mohd Saeed Establishment.

"We have seen the market grow over the years and we strongly believe that the Bruce Lee Fragrances brand will be a big hit amongst the male audience," he added.
