The booklet with Bruce Lee's revisions to Wing Chun Kung Fu sells for £52,000 ($80984 US dollars!)
Born Lee Jun-fan, Bruce Lee created his own "Jun Fan" style- making notes and revisions to the Wing Chun pamphlet. Lee called the adapted style Jun Fan Gung Fu, which means literally as 'Bruce Lee's Kung Fu'.The manual would be a real treasure for Jun Fan, Jeet Kune Do, and possibly Wing Chun practicioners.
Notes made by Lee include:
- 'grasp the opponent hard when he blocks your right punch, and kick him while jabbing him'
- 'from straight hand punch, bend and strike violently at opponent's temple.'
- 'Right hand block; left go over right and right pulls back immediately and punch out or back fist after swing'.
Bruce Lee was a renowned martial artist and film star, skyrocketing to stardom with films such as Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon. He died in 1973 at 32 years of age from swelling to his brain.
