They're also a fair bit lighter for extra speed (and less pain when hit lol!)

Bruce learn mainly from Cheung, rather than Yip Man.
He only knew the one of the three empty hand forms, the wooden dummy form (but not the fresh air one), he did some sticky hands. He didnt do the emergency form which teaches you recovery and the sword form which is for power development and chi.
Not dissing him (for all you BL lovers) just saying that he didnt learn even half of the WC syllabus.

However, according to Cheung, Lee was a very good dancer. He reckoned that they both did the cha cha and it helped with their footwork. Maybe swing helped with nunchakus?

I have heard a lot of strangeries about how Bruce Lee learnd to use the nunchaku...
Nunchaku come from okinawa, it's an okinawan traditional weapon, this is sure...
Now we have to understand who brought the nunchaku from okinawa to U.S., the answer is George Dillman. This is history, not the mine opinion. George Dillman teached personally the use of nunchaku to Bruce Lee in one of the their many exchanges of knowledge. The nunchaku was unknown in the world outside okinawa before George Dillman. George Dillman Have also the bests instructional videos on nunchaku, you can find these at www.dillman.com

Bye bye

Um, got any real proof of this? (the whole George Dilllman brought sacred nunchaku knowledge to the heathen West).

While I may concede the Dillman may have taught Lee (Lee travelled in a big circle of ppl),

play nicely kids..... there's no need to incite riots or other mindless acts of violence

Ok Reiki,
I didn't want to do a war, I wanted only to help somebody sharing that I know. But now I prefer to leave this thread... it's not useful for anybody

bye bye
