Alive - Dekker, Urquidez, Norris They all have very crisp, clean, smooth technique. Norris even trains his ground game, and as talented a MAist he is, you know hes good at it.

i would have to say primarily Donnie Yen...He comes from mainly wushu background but he himself is a JKD believer and doesnt have a form or anything, its simply just Donnie.

Jet Li too...he has incredible speed, technique and form. And in his movies hes oh so cool, especially with stopping kicks from coming his way.
and Tony Jaa, though he does alot of gymnastics, he presents a very Muay Boran looking art and shows wut the hell Thai ppl can do

haha Tommy Carruthers....hes amazingly like Bruce

Ali. Yeah, he didn't kick or grapple, but he motivated me to become a fighter instead of a brawler.

Call me jaded, but I try not to place the self-worth of a person on physical skills. What if you're a practicing martial artist and somehow you end up losing your legs after having a car crash or being shot? Will the loss of your skills be crushing and debilitating to your entire psyche? Friends, there are many other things in life that should be savored fully. This thing we do for a past-time, a living, or even a "lifestyle" is wonderful, but it only has so much meaning. In the end we are all only imperfect mortal human beings.

OoooooK for me it would be samo hung jackie and yun biao,plus tommy carruthers.If they lost their legs they would probably become more inspirational knowing them.
