i knew bruce lee studied lots of other arts but i thought his teacher was yip man?? i thought he was solely a wing chun teacher, maybe i am wrong??

was just wondering because he was so good at using nunchaku i figured the person who taught him to use them would be quite well known but i cannot find info in any of his books!!

neway, thanx for the reply

Bruce Lee knocked around with a lot of MA guys in US, such as Jhoon Rhee, Chuck Norris et al. He studied a number of different things, hence JKD.

bruce lee was taught by yip man who knew bruces father after bruce was beaten in a petty school gang fight. he never finished the training learning only 2/3s of the sticking hands. he went back to later to yip man to finish his training.

any nunchucka... he was introduced to them by probably his best known student (and probably the main reason we have jkd) dan inosanato who had lots of experience in kali and with other weapons. it was probably inosanto who trained lee in them but lee naturally surpassed most of his teachers quickley.

buy bruce lee: fighting spirit for any info on his life.

I heard that it was Fumio Demura who taught him to use them. However bruce by no means mastered them, but rather was taught a few tricks by Demura so he could use them in his movies.

I remember reading in an old Black Belt magazine article that Dan Inosanto taught him to use them. Take it for what it's worth.

Bruce Lee never learned how to use Nunchaku. He knew what looked on film & learned a few tricks. I understand that he was introduced to the weapon by Fumio Demura. Dan Inosanto taught him some Escrima.

BTW: the nunchaku he uses have chain that are Waaaaay too long.
