Bruce Lee-The One Inch Punch

I thought the students in my classes would enjoy this video. Bruce Lee was one of the greatest martial artist actors ever, but most especially, of his time. If this video is enjoyable to you please check out some of Bruce Lee’s other work. His most popular movie is Enter The Dragon.

He is also known for his work in the Green Hornet.
