"bruce lee" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories

"Ever since his death in 1973, Bruce Lee's fans have wondered how the healthy 32 year old could have died so suddenly. Many explanations have focused on his medical history or drug consumption. But some say the cause of his death might have been Supernatural. Which brings us to conspiracy theory number one. Bruce Lee's family lives in the shadow of a family curse. Even before Bruce was born, the Lee family showed signs of misfortune. His mother gave birth to a boy who died in infancy. Which apparently made Bruce's parents deeply superstitious. According to some online sources, Bruce's family suspected that an evil spirit had been targeting the males of their family. So, once they had Bruce, they didn't take any chances with their new son. Allegedly, he was given a traditionally female nickname sci-fi, meaning little Phoenix. Perhaps they felt that maybe if the demons believe their child was a girl, they wouldn't punish him. Even Bruce's younger brother, Robert, wondered if evil had fallen upon the family. In a 1993 interview, Roberts said he'd been warned about a curse by a Chinese Feng Shui master. Apparently, Robert and Bruce's father had been buried next to a young boy, which was said to be a bad omen. The master told Robert that if they didn't relocate his father's body or build a wall between him and the boy, more tragedy would come to the Lee family. Following Bruce's death, this theory was relatively unknown, but a moment in one of Bruce Lee's films cemented the conspiracy in the public lexicon. At the time of his passing in 1973, Bruce had already shot several scenes for a game of death, while they did halt production, producer Raymond chow eventually resumed shooting without Bruce. On March 23rd, 1978, game of death premiered in Hong Kong, and then in the U.S. on June 8th, 1979. In the film, Bruce played an actor who was shot by a loaded prop gun. In the movie, it leads to a horrific moment on set. But 20 years later, a similar scene played out in real life. After Bruce's death, his son Brandon Lee followed in his dad's footsteps. In his early 20s, Brandon acted in mostly low budget martial arts movies and TV shows. But in 1993, he secured the lead role in a major comic book adaptation film called the crow. During an action scene, one of Brandon's costars was when to fire a prop gun. A crew member told the costar that the pistol was filled with blanks. But when the actor fired the prop gun at Brandon, a blank bullet was unknowingly lodged in the gun and flew out of the barrel with nearly the same force as a real bullet, striking the 28 year old actor in the stomach. It was about two minutes before anyone on set realized what had happened. Once the crew saw that Brandon wasn't acting and was actually hurt, they rushed him to the hospital. Doctors attempted surgery, but it was too late. Within hours, Brandon died. Theorists couldn't ignore the similarities between Bruce's game of death scene and his son's terrible accident. Which is probably why some people believe the leaves were plagued by some kind of curse. The family's history of loss is undoubtedly tragic. But I think we're looking for connections where there aren't any. Bruce's death isn't the only time a seemingly healthy young man died of an unexpected condition. As for Brandon, the unfortunate truth is, a movie set is a dangerous place, and events like this have happened before. In October 2021, cinematographer Helena Hutchins lost her life after a prop gun was fired on the set of rust. Which means safety issues like this are possible in Hollywood and need to be addressed on a production level. Especially since they're still happening decades after Brandon's death. So on a scale of one to ten with ten being the most believable, I give this theory a one. Absolutely. And while the connections are interesting, this theory is too far fetched for me to believe. I think we often look for explanations in the Supernatural just to feel like we have some sense of control. But the leads both worked in a physically taxing dangerous industry, so maybe their deaths weren't so coincidental after all. I have to give this theory a two. I think it's safe to say that evil spirits didn't play a part in Bruce's death, but that doesn't mean there wasn't more to the story. What many people didn't know was a few months prior to his passing, Bruce underwent an incredibly risky surgery, and the consequences may have been fatal. Which brings us to our second conspiracy theory. Bruce Lee died of a simple heat stroke. In 2018, author Matthew Polly released his extensive biography on Bruce Lee's life. In the book, Pauly makes the case for those who believe the inquest into Bruce's death was a sham. First, he noted that the British colonial government, which as we mentioned, ruled Hong Kong at the time, wanted a verdict that quelled the violent protests. They likely didn't care about the truth. Holly also said the British government interfered with the proceedings to reach that conclusion. He alleged that authorities manipulated testimonies and swayed medical officials to influence the jury's decision. To further bolster his theory, poly pointed to the fact that most experts couldn't agree on the cause of Bruce's death. Many attributed it to cannabis consumption, but others weren't so sure. In the middle of the trial, the courts delayed the proceedings and flew in an esteemed British pathologist named Robert Donald tear. He was the one who said Bruce died of a hypersensitivity to equagesic, the pain relief bill the actor took for his headache. Soon enough, one of the three other medical experts in the inquest fell in line with tear. After all, this conclusion was less likely to provoke more riots. But Polly didn't buy that explanation either. According to his interview with Betty, she claimed that this wasn't the first time he'd taken equagesic at her home. While the court asked Betty to testify twice, she only took the witness stand once, and her questioning was brief. Bruce's fans found it strange that the government didn't need to hear more from the chief witness in the case. The alleged tampering may have gone a step further, though, before the jury deliberated in the judge's explanations of their choices for cause of death, the judge appeared to blatantly advise them to choose death by misadventure, which is what ultimately happened. It was like he led them directly to the verdict the government wanted them to pick. On top of that, Paulie believed the courts had ignored the clear cause of Bruce's death, and operation the actor underwent shortly before his.

"Seemed anything but platonic. With the dark truth exposed, the actor's adoring fan base turned vicious. They didn't believe that a healthy 32 year old movie star died of natural causes. Instead, many blamed Betty for his passing. The actress received countless harassing calls and death threats. Some heard rumors that a hit had been taken out on her life. Betty sequestered herself in her apartment, terrified to show her face to the public, which only made matters worse. People demonstrated and carried signs that read Betty killed Bruce. As the vitriol festered, the police in Hong Kong found suspicious looking bags left out in public spaces. There were covered in Chinese characters that claimed Betty knew how Bruce died. Officials worried there might be bombs inside these packages. And they had good reason. According to Matthew Polly's biography of Bruce Lee, the stunt reminded the British government of the 1967 riots. At the time, Hong Kong was still under British rule, pro communist demonstrations plagued the city as rebels planted bombs throughout the streets. At least 50 people died in the chaos. Luckily, the small packages pertaining to Betty and Bruce were nothing more than decoys. But authorities worried that if they didn't do something quickly, the violence would escalate. As a result, officials called for a full scale inquest into the actor's demise. They had to put the rumors to bed, once.

"Descended on the hospital, everyone wanted to know how a physical marvel like Bruce Lee could die so young. To avoid a scandal, Raymond made sure that all the witnesses had their story straight. And that included Linda. But that meant he had to tell her the truth about her husband's death. That Bruce had died at Betty ting pei's apartment. Even though she was distraught over her spouse's infidelity, she knew the repercussions if the press found out, which is why she agreed to go along with the cover up. The next day, Raymond released a statement. He claimed that Bruce Lee collapsed and died at his own home while walking with Linda in his garden. At first, the public bought the story, but the ruse only lasted for three days. A Hong Kong paper learned that Bruce had died in Betty ting pays apartment and implied that the two were having an affair. In light of the coverage, Raymond adjusted his cover story. While he admitted Bruce knew Betty, he denied all extramarital activity. Instead, the producer only included the part of the night where they met with the actress to offer her a role in game of death. But the press wasn't sold, they didn't believe that Bruce and Betty were merely colleagues, reporters interviewed other tenants in the actress's building who claimed that Bruce visited frequently. Their relationship.

"Was hot in humid that day, but audio engineers turned off the air conditioner, so it wouldn't interfere with the recording. The room got hotter as Bruce performed as lines. Over time, his head started to ache, and he grew woozy. Bruce took a break and went straight to the bathroom. Inside one of the stalls, Bruce turned to the one vice that steadied his nerves. Cannabis. According to Matthew Polly's biography, Bruce Lee, a life, he was wary of alcohol and tobacco, but he enjoyed smoking marijuana and eating hash infused sweets. He would tell people that it calmed him down and expanded his mind. It was illegal in Hong Kong, but he felt it was harmless. Even though, at this point in his career, he was consuming it quite often. After a few minutes, Bruce returned to the recording studio, pale and covered in sweat. He kept reading his lines, but before he could get far, Bruce fell to the ground. He vomited and his body convulsed. The engineers froze, and sure of how to help the seemingly invincible star. An assistant ran to alert Raymond chow together, the studio team carried Bruce to Raymond's car and took him to the nearest hospital. Bruce's wife, Linda, arrived a few minutes after he was admitted. She was terrified to learn that her husband couldn't move or speak. A neurosurgeon diagnosed Bruce with a condition known as cerebral edema or the swelling of the brain. If left untreated, the condition could be life threatening. Luckily, Bruce was in good hands. The doctor gave Bruce medication to reduce the swelling and pressure. After more than two hours, he finally regained consciousness by the next day, Bruce was back to his usual self. The neurosurgeon who treated Bruce blamed the collapse on the actor's frequent hash use, but at the time, Hong Kong's medical field didn't have much experience or knowledge when it came to marijuana. So, Bruce traveled to the United States where he felt he could get a stronger second opinion. In Los Angeles, a neurologist examined the 32 year old further. He said Bruce's brain was functioning normally and that he appeared to be in good physical condition. The California doctor wrote off the collapse as a seizure with no known cause. Bruce took the second diagnosis as a clean bill of health. He resumed his normal regimen, shooting at the studio during the day and staying up late to work on his next project. It wasn't long until Bruce's hectic schedule ran him into the ground. Those that spent time with the actors said he looked exhausted and emaciated. Still, he kept up this tiring routine. Bruce was confident that enormous success was waiting for him just around the corner. In fact, he was so sure enter the dragon would be a hit that he began planning his next movie, game of death. On July 20th, 1973, just two months after his collapse at the studio, Bruce planned a dinner in Hong Kong with a friend and actor he wanted to hire. His name was George lazenby,.

Alec Baldwin Fatally Shoots Woman With Prop Gun on Movie Set

"Alec Baldwin kills a member of his crew with a prop gun. My friend Mark Davis reminds me that a prop gun, that ain't fire in anything. A prop gun is just that. It's a prop. It's a fake gun. It isn't capable of fire in anything. So they're using that term prop gun, probably inaccurately, but then again, all of this thing is weird. Every aspect of this is beyond bizarre. They are so careful on movie sets. There have been fatal accidents. Rural and Vic Morrow was decapitated? Making one of those I think Twilight Zone movies? Was it Brandon Lee Bruce Lee's kid who got killed on a movie set? So they're very, very careful. And yet somehow Alec Baldwin shot and killed the cinematographer on a movie that he was starring in and producing. Now, the investigation, of course, is underway. No charges have been filed, you know, you got to believe it's a horrible accident that will now follow Alec Baldwin for the rest of his life. He has to live with the death of this beautiful young woman who was his sin of photographer. I mean, again, none of this make it any sense. How does the shin of a photographer and his director get shot? And already, the family of Brandon Lee is tweeting out condolences saying no one should ever get killed on a movie set by a gun.

"Back then movies a rare. You spend mumps wasting for that new movie to come out. People go and watch movies and remember every single moment. Every line every character every stereotype. Bruce hates it is everywhere. Tv shows movies. Adverts posters asian actors who are lucky enough to make it play submissive dimwitted characters. Happy to be serving their white masters and asians. Bailey even gets movie roles in the first place. Brucie's the worst example of this on a date of all places a date with a white woman. Linda that's controversial enough. The goal to see breakfast at tiffany's and what he gets is a slap in the face not from linda. He marries linda. Eventually linda's mother isn't too happy about it and bruce's peres onto happy about at first but everyone comes around in the end. No this slap in the face is from the movie. Everyone knows orgy. Hipbones carbs from breakfast at tiffany's but might have forgotten her landlord. Mr you know. She is japanese not chinese. But it's an asian stereotype all the same. And that's half the problem or gives his told chinese japanese vietnamese. It doesn't matter that's just asian. Forget the different coaches. Forget the history. Forget the fact bruce. A chinese kid grew up in hong kong seeing japanese soldiers as his enemy in hollywood. They're all the same the other half of the problem. The bigger half is that the actor is a white american mickey rooney. He's a joke. A cheap lawf- ruini wears big false. Teeth looks clumsily into walls and doors never open his eyes wider than a squint. Speaks with an accent turned up to eleven. It pisses bruce of makes it more determined to be different in hollywood. But that's american dream. Bruce was chasing. it doesn't happen for him like he might have hoped he makes a name for himself. Bought his brief a moment in time in nineteen sixty six. He gets a role on the green hornet. Tv show as the title character. Psychic kato the green hornet lost one season but his groundbreaking the first time american audiences see much loss like that. The first time. I say an asian character but isn't a stereotype. Kato is a bad loss. Pure and simple. It helps green hornets. These are the bad guy. He's not done. He's goofy or clumsy. He's smart. He thinks before he punches thinks before he kicks. Unlike mr you know she. Kato is always incomplete control of his body of every situation. Kato talks as well. That's a victory for asian nectar.

"La lakers star kareem abdul-jabbar. Become his students but this starts to cause problems. What draws people to bruce is how different. He is and unique. Doesn't always go down. Well most teachers off a one form of martial arts and stick too rigidly bruce. He hates traditions. Starts doing something. That's unthinkable to. Most chinese people mix things up. He doesn't just teach swing chun he mixes it with kung-fu with judo. Taekwondo tai chi. You name it bruce. Learns about it and incorporated into his style. Why limit yourself to one. Bruce people each has strengths but each has flaws why not create a style. That takes the best of everything. That's the basis of mixed martial arts today but in the fifties and sixties when bruce's during this is unheard of blasphemy. It spits on everything. An entire community believes worst of all. He's teaching this new style. A style he calls jeet kun do. Two white guys black guys. Anyone who asks as well. As chinese students see bruce always hates the status quo and the status quo. In bruce lee's america is real. It's everywhere not just in his community. Not just about martial arts. It exists everywhere. He looks if even defines who he is because of what he looks like mixing with guys like mcqueen gives him thinking about getting back into movies. Hollywood he starts to realize this is where he could break the biggest status quo of all quick history lesson. America's relationship with china is complicated hundred years before bruce's born chinese is helped white americans achieve what they called manifest destiny with the greatest railroad ever built stretching from coast to coast thousands of them die building the america we know today but they don't get medals or money fame. They don't become part of america's story. Heroes like billy the kid or jesse james. They get hatred scorn and ridicule in eighteen. Eighty two. They're banned from the country altogether. Those laws are rolled back in the decades before. Bruce's boone bar stigmas like that contempt. You don't get rid of it. With legislation it burns deep. It can take generations to go away. The stereotypes grow silly accents. Big hats stupid. Lazy clumsy subservient and those stereotypes are at their worst on the silver.

That's what the book to say. Bruce lee the guy who was invincible in his movies indestructible pint.

Buddy the buddy they say every man wants misadventure. That's how they say he died. It doesn't seem right. The more you read about it the more questions you have even today. People aren't convinced they want different onces but might not be any. And that's the most frustrating part. The bruce lee is one of a kind. You only have to watch his movies to realize that. Like fists of fury the karate. School fight bruce lee versus a room of martial arts twins. So the old trying to attack him at once and he makes them old look stupid he starts kicks pivoting with his foot and kicking kicking right he can wherever he can whenever anyone comes within touching distance of him one guy thinks he's god sneaks up behind him what lee elbows throws him to the floor and then kicks the next two guys to the flow to every move is calculated martial arts meets chess. No one can bring him down so he earns a fight against the mazda. One on one bruce's kicks better his punches. A foster it moves like he's gliding like time has slowed down for him. He beats him. Hit the chest kick through a war. Right hunt left. Hand one final king. The mazda is on the floor defeated. Bruce he pulls on his jacket always the coolest man in the room. It's a movie box. Bursley makes it seem real and to him. It was real sure. There are cameras a script actors whatever. But here's the thing about bruce lee and his movies. You knew he could do every move in real life. He could fight anyway and anyone and he'd probably win every time he's not just a movie star either. He's been dead for nearly forty years but he still just as important as ever and the craziest thing of all he never gets to see any of this. He dies before he becomes world famous before he gets the see mixed. Martial arts turned professional. Before you have c- he dies. Before he can see the asian actors he inspired the ones who say.

One and bruce to focus more so in academics and were not pleased with his performance with bruce's behavior seemingly not improving bruce's parents decided to send him overseas to america in nineteen fifty-nine. Bruce made his faithful journey to san francisco. Bruce arrived on the shores of america on his own with a hundred dollars to his name. and nothing else. While bruce was born in america hong kong had always been home. Bruce had left all he'd known to take a chance in a foreign country. After arriving in america bruce shortly left san francisco and traveled to seattle to connect with a family friend. That agreed to give brusca job in a place to stay. Bruce was described as fun in playful. Always charming but also focused in determined. He'd loved dancing and acting but chose to put those passions on the back burner while he pursued his education. Bruce attended the edison technical school to earn his high school credits. Then enrolled in university of washington bruce's interest and passion for martial arts which used a combined mind body soul approach inspired him to major in philosophy. Bruce was able to fund is education and a ten school by teaching martial arts to willing students. It all began with a group of friends that recognize bruce's talent and paid him to teach them his techniques. This group along with others and bruises life who've recognized his passions for teaching martial arts encourage bruce to open a real school to the public. Bruce would go on to open his first school and in a romantic twist of fate. One of his first students became his future wife. As bruce continued to work at the school watch his students improve and watch his own life satisfaction increase. Bruce of voted his full time to learning and teaching martial arts. Bruce and his wife. Linda left seattle in moved to oakland california. Bruce realized it was time to expand his teachings and left his school in seattle to be led by one of his. Pass students in oakland bruce. Open a second school with james lee. Who was another martial arts pioneer. It's incredible to think about. But by the time. Bruce had opened his second school. He had only been in the united states for five years in nineteen sixty four. Bruce was challenged a one on one fight by members of an opposing school. They believed that it was wrong. That bruce was teaching his ways to non-chinese students and that was a part of their culture. That was only exclusive to those who were truly chinese. Bruce was described as someone who would never back down from a challenge. As you've grown. He'd become self-assured focused and confident in his fighting skills. Naturally bruce accepted the challenge and invited the men to fight at his school. Once the men arrived the terms were set. If bruce was defeated he would stop teaching his martial arts. Those who are not chinese. The fight began and was over quite quickly. It ended with his opponent giving up as bruce had him firmly pinned to the floor. Bruce was victorious. He had bested his opponent and retained his freedom to teach martial arts to whom he pleased. Though bruce had won the fight he was disappointed in his performance. What part of his triumph in fight was disappointing to bruce. You ask. He was unhappy with the fact that he was unable to win the fight in three minutes. This was his biggest critique of himself not meeting the insanely high standards he had set for himself. That alone speaks volumes about his character. As bruce's popularity began to grow within the martial arts teaching community. He set his sights on opening more schools in one thousand nine hundred sixty four all continuing to further his education and martial arts and develop personal fitness. Bruce was invited to give a demonstration at the first international karate tournament. Bruce's incredible performance was noticed by an acquaintance of producer. Named william dozier. William was just as impressed after viewing a film of the tournament. He called bruce and invited him to fly to los angeles for a screen test. After dealing with more than a few sudden life changes in transitions including the birth of his son and the death of his father bruce again began to pursue acting roles capitalizing on his amazing charm charisma and showmanship plus years of experience obtained during his formative years. Bruce was made for the big screen early on his career. All their bruce was a dynamic individual. He had to work harder than others to establish himself in hollywood. This was due in part to unfortunate stereotypes and racism that was present at games emigrants from foreign countries. During that time period bruce was also not a recognized face just yet making it difficult for directors to take a chance on him. Bruce did receive a few acting roles but maintained support. First family teaching private martial arts sessions during this time. Bruce was teaching his own discipline that he'd call jeet kun dough bruce's student population had changed as well in that he was teaching more so to those that worked in the entertainment industry. Bruce had more than a few note. Worthing students including steve mcqueen and kareem abdul jabbar in nineteen sixty nine. Bruce's daughter was born. And bruce continued to evolve and progress. His jeep kundu. The next year. As bruce began to work hard at his training. He suffered a tragic back injury. The injury was devastating including significant nerve damage. Constant pain and a significant loss of mobility. Anyone that has had chronic back pain understands just how much of a change this was for someone as fit in independent as bruce. The mental toll was just as devastating as the physical. As bruce was put on bedrest for a full six months while he was frustrated with his current situation bruce us the time to go inward and develop his mind against the daily limitations. Bruce studied philosophy regularly and enjoy developing his mind. Just as much as his body. Bruce wrote read and eventually created a recovery program for himself in order to get him walking again. Bruce created his own way when they were seemingly no way while recovering from his back injury. Bruce decided to visit his home in hong kong with his son. Who was five at the time. Word of bruce arriving in hong kong soon spread and he was contacted by producer who offered him roles in two films with his body healing. Bruce was not able to train and teach. He's been doing for so long. Bruce accepted the offer and decided that he would work his way up the entertainment industry in hong kong. Bruce left america in flew to thailand to begin filming for his first movie called the big boss in nineteen seventy one. This film was later called fists of fury and it was a huge hit before beginning filming on his second film. Bruce decided to move his family to hong kong to be closer to him. While he was working bruce's second film was an even bigger smash hit than his first. This wasn't a good luxury. Bruce gave one hundred percent of himself to whatever he dedicated his attention to. He didn't allow his physical state or the sudden change of pace disrupt his passion with bruce's third film. He had formed a production company with raymond. Chow the director with whom he made his first two films. Bruce was able to really express his creativity as he wrote and directed along with produced this film. This third film was another smash. Hit in his streak of blockbusters. Just that last. Bruce had been completely bedridden with a crushing back injury. Six months later. Bruce was living out his passion watching his dreams come into reality in nineteen seventy-two while bruce was filming his fourth movie in hong kong warner brothers reached out to make a deal for co-production writes on film. This was groundbreaking in hollywood at the time. Making it the first ever. Hong kong american partnership produced film bruce's success in hong kong had made waves in hollywood was listening.

That only broadcasted three or four china's max. I forgot which one of his movies. I was watching but uncertain. It was the first martial arts movie. I'd ever seen. And i feel my never seen starring canadian actor at the time it would have been really hard to imagine that now so many are slater out to be still talking about the guy. Even more recent times. Bruce lee s played there rather important role in my life. My first book which was published. You need tell you when. I was in my early twenties and was about philosophy. Martial-arts featured image of bruce lee on the cover fuss foreword about fifty nine. Ers and i ended up featured on documentary. Diane bruce lee that broke old. Yo the ncaa cord for the commander is on spike tv and feature folks like you have see champion jon jones. Ufc white box legends. Like manny pacquiao rabo mancini and be a stars like kobe. Bryant doctors like i don't don't at mikio grappling gods like jean lebel my phd adviser and scholar extraordinaire. Paul bowman just to name a few anyways. Thanks to this documentary about bruce. Lee's life that. I had a chance to meet bruce daughter. Shannon and director pete mccormack. Who over time has become one of my very best friends. he's dantely. Piecework is fantastic. Both as a writer and director if you have a chance to check out lamentably series that he created for. Hbo canada coal spots on fire. You won't be disappointed. He storytelling skills are recycled on like nobody tell stories the way he does. And yes if you are an acute observer you may have naughty star rather heavy similarity between the titles of the documentary series and might bald coast not incidence. That's because i really liked the title and eye blatantly. Asked if i could steal it for my podcast. Mp being the absolute gentleman that he is agreed to let me use it. So here you go with history on fire to make it a whole. I am bruce. Lee experience even sweeter. The premiere of the show was the first time i went with my lady. So meriem wasn't even a romantic date or anything. Just what. I thought was a hang out with a friend. Well dino all these to say i'm extra excited to be tackling this topic because it's one that's super important to me in. I'm sure these may basel some of the nice folks listening. Maybe you know of bruce lee purely passing near metro theme is just of some athletic martial arts. Guy who starred in a handful of films in the nineteen seventies. Maybe you don't care about such things. Maybe you're wondering if this series history for you. If that is the case. I strongly recommend for you to stick with me and give it a try. If you are easy to produce to been out the you would see in gravestone sentence left by his friends and disciples that says your inspiration continues to guide us toward our personal liberation now. This is not exactly the kind of stuff you expect to see on the tombstone of some random action star to if nothing else. This should be your first clue that bruce lee was not just another athlete. Door and other all star he was of course he was all of the things but he was much more as well in a when asked about it. He swiped linda said what is this. something about. bruce leader continues to fascinate people. In all walks of life. I believe it is the depth of his personal philosophy which subconsciously or otherwise projects from the screen and his writings. these is a theme. We are definitely going to spend time on before the end of the serious. And i believe that you know some of you guys listening. I'm sure our bruce. Lee fans some of you are not and your game. You're wandering wise it even a topic. I'm pretty sure that by the end you'll be able to see why it's a big deal at the time when i'm at according is almost half a century pass since the death of bruce lee nineteen seventy-three yet five decades seemed to have done nothing to less his fame a while back. I've done a series about goto. O'connell the creator of judo and about how he motorists created modern Yards the way i see. No one is played half his role scanners no-one that he's except brutally because he's really not an acceleration to say. The millions of people have taken up martial-arts because of fame.

"Talk about one of the dumbest social media. Marketing lies out there that you have to be everywhere on every platform and you need to put out one hundred pieces of content today This is bad advice.

The podcast that helps you develop a lens for what makes legendary marketing legendary hosted by christopher lockhead three times. Cmo godfather category design and a high school dropout. The marketing journal calls one of the best minds in marketing and the economist calls off putting to some all right. So this thing that you hear all the time be everywhere on every platform there's new platforms coming up all the time we gotta get our strategy for this or strategy for that we got us putting out content content content content. You gotta be everywhere on every platform and you gotta do it a hundred to two hundred times a day all right. So there's a ninety nine percent chance that you're doing too much most of us do we get we're marketing people. We chase shiny objects. We come up with cool ideas. We wanna try shit experiment etc etc on episode ninety. We talked about the power of shaving. The dog shave that doggy down. Remember the sage. Words of bruce lee who said i fear not the man who was practiced ten thousand kicks once but i fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times in one of the reasons that many of us feel like. We're constantly behind on our social media. Marketing is dumb. Fuck advice we've heard about being on every platform and puking out all this content so let me share with you counter perspective. There's a legendary copywriter named ben. Settle s. e. T. t. l. e. There'll be a link to his website and the show notes or you can just google him if you like. He sells writing services. He's copywriter. he's got some books in some courses and some newsletters and things along those lines and he's got a very well known as well known cult. Figure a niche in the Copywriting world and if you check out his site you'll see why an ben settled does not have any social media. He's got a post out about why he cut it all out and essentially he thought it was a waste of time and so he cut it all out and i don't know ben personally but it doesn't seem to have affected his business and his profile is probably bigger now than it was a couple years ago when he cut all of his social media ties and he essentially said he thought it was a waste of time so he didn't wanna do it anymore. I don't know about you but to me. There's something very appealing about this approach. Part of me wants to go full bend. Settle in. But i have it so if this is too extreme for you or your company or your brand i get it. It's too extreme for me to probably But ben is onto something. It took me a while to realize that i should not be on all social media platforms and over time i've discovered which platforms Work and which ones don't for me so for example platforms that are tuned to sound bites and silliness. Not so much for me. I suck on twitter totally suck same thing on instagram. Yeah i like to post photos of the the hands or our cat being some pretty shit at the beach or whatever but like when i tried to do marketing podcasts and books and stuff on social media on instagram. I failed completely. I'm still not sure. I understand what a real is. And what a what a fucking this is into that is so the bottom line is on twitter and instagram. I cut it out. I still have accounts on both platforms. But i stopped trying to get anything done in terms of promoting podcasts or books or any of the stuff that i do. I have the accounts. I put photos of being upper. Whatever i do tweet. Some business stuff on twitter but my expectation is zero on both instagram and twitter there just for fun and Have never been on tiktok. I find it stupid fucking stupid. So i'm not interested. Hey if you like it by all means have at it. But you're not gonna see me on tiktok anytime soon. I gave pinterest discovered. Not for me If you a regular listener talked about clubhouse recently as i said a couple of episodes ago clubhouse it's interesting. It's great but the reality is hosting a webinar hosting platform with no video. So i've tried it a little bit. I wasn't that motivated or excited by it. Maybe try a little bit more. We'll see who don't know on that one Cora and facebook are like bees for me. there okay Better than facebook or corre as you probably know is a question and answer site and so i like both reading them and responding to them. I think that's very very cool. And when you respond to somebody's question It's a more powerful thing to just sort of posting something generically out there and hoping it catches. Somebody's i Facebook is all right for us. We've a small. Facebook group not really focused on it Check it out on a fairly regular basis and engage with people But a mistake that a lot of marketers make is they promote their facebook group We don't do that member. They're facebook's customers not yours when people go to your facebook page or your facebook group. Facebook controls what they see what they don't seem so the only thing we asked people to join is Is to go to a lock dot com and join our newsletter now our newsletter category pirates because with a newsletter. We have somebody's email. There's no tech giant in between the two parties. So when i joined a newsletter it's me and the newsletter provider when you join our newsletter same thing and when we send you something you'll get it and if you don't like it you can opt out but i don't like promoting a platform facebook because they control whether or not people see our post how they participate in our group and i think that's bullshit that's just me so with a newsletter there's no tech giant inbetween creator and consumer Now from social platform perspective. What has worked for me by a mile. The best is lincoln. And it's tune to my skills and what i'm looking for in social media first of all i like to write. So linked in is more of a longer form writing platform. Brevity is not my thing so tweets have never been what i'm good at and so Linked in is more optimized for long form written content. I also like real thoughtful dialog believe it or not that happens for me on a very regular basis on linked in a way that it's impossible on something like twitter and as a side note. I will not deal with anybody online. Who's got a fake name or you know his anonymous or any of that. I like dealing with real people. And on linked in most of the profiles there are real people. Most of them are professionals. Not morons and so you can have a thoughtful conversation with people on on lincoln and i deeply enjoy that now. We also have a youtube channel. By way of example it's mostly useless for us. Became clear to me early on that to be successful on youtube. You couldn't just drop of video of two people talking for an hour on the video on youtube and hoped to be successful that you need to create purpose built content for youtube. So we don't really do much. They're either however we did tripled down on audio podcasting and we tripled down on the newsletter for the reasons. I already talked about so what what tends to work for me is longer form content Podcasting and writing. So what is what's my point. What what does all this have to do with you I think when you think about your social media marketing whether you're doing it for yourself as an individual or for your category company and brand on a as an individual pick one platform that really works for you and tripled down on that platform. I'll tell you when. I when i just stop fucking around on all the other platforms and religious focused on linked in my life. Just got a lot simpler and much more effective. Frankly now if you're thinking about social media marketing for your category your brand and your company maybe instead of picking one pick three but just three be legendary. Those three maybe have a presence on others. I get that but only pick three for your company. Brandon category be legendary at those three create purpose built content for those platforms. Really figure it out and make it

The second event the long beach international karate championships would make him famous the first event. The chinatown is a place outside. China hong kong taiwan with a large concentration of chinese people. San francisco has a chinatown to before. Bruce lee came to san francisco. There were two major martial arts schools in chinatown there. Each of these schools was headed by a revered master for more than two decades. Both these schools prohibited students from fighting on the streets. This was in stark contrast to the hong kong of the nineteen fifties where students from opposing martial arts. Schools often fought on the streets. So bruce lee who grew up using his martial arts techniques street fights considered these schools in chinatown ineffective and weak because their techniques were never tested in street fights then nineteen fifty-nine immediately after he arrived at san francisco. Bruce lee tried to prove to one of these chinatown masters. The style was superior. Obviously bruce. lee's comments were not taken lightly. A few months later. Bruce lee moved to seattle but even after he moved to seattle he was very vocal about the inefficiency of traditional kung fu styles. An example of this can be found in the only book he wrote chinese. Kung-fu the philosophical art of self defense. This book which bruce lee published in nineteen sixty three has a section called difference in gung fu styles in this section. Bruce lee dismantles the techniques illustrated by one of these chinatown masters in his earlier book then he demonstrates how his style is superior to the slower half cultivated styles of that master. Bruce lee's book which was sold for five dollars in chinatown led to disdain among bruce lee and other chinatown masters. They considered him a dissident with bad manners and he considered them old tigers with no teeth. The nineteen sixty four. Bruce lee moved to oakland which was very near to san francisco by this time. His contempt for traditional styles had increased and he had become even more vocal about it. He started giving public demonstrations explaining why his style was superior and would work in a street fight then he would methodically explain why other traditional styles wouldn't work in a street fight once during such demonstration at a theater in the heart of san francisco's chinatown. Bruce delivered. A one inch punch to a spectator but instead of being knocked back the spectators stood still even though. Bruce lee knocked the spectator back with a second one inch punch the spectator claimed that he wasn't prepared for a second punch. So the crowd started laughing. And booing bruce lee. This annoyed bruce. Lee who invited anyone onto the stage. Who thought he was better than him. He then announced that he was the best man on the stage and also in san francisco and would welcome anyone who thinks otherwise for a dual then nineteen sixty three around the time. When bruce lee's book was published another martial artist named wong jack man showed up in chinatown. Unlike bruce's wing chun which specialized in short range combat wong style focused on acrobatic long range attacks as wong was slowly becoming famous in chinatown in nineteen sixty four due to unknown reasons. He fired against bruce. This fight between two twenty three year old martial artists from hong kong happened in closed quarters with only a handful of witnesses therefore there are two versions as to what caused the fight. And what happened in it. According to bruce and his wife. Linda's version chinatown was not happy when their schools started attracting many non chinese students so they asked him to stop teaching non-chinese students when he refused to comply. They sent wong jack. Man to fight against bruce lee. They said that if he won he could teach anyone he wanted but if he lost he had to shut his school down. Bruce lee commented that the paper given to him had the names of popular chinatown masters. But he wasn't afraid so the fight which was a no rules barred match where anyone could hit anywhere began. According to linda there were thirteen people in the room. According to her the fight lasted only three minutes. During which time bruce completely dominated won the fight ended when wong started running and bruce pounced on him and pinned him to the ground. Wong was already beaten badly and was completely demoralized so he surrendered immediately when bruce lee pinned him to the ground bruce lee later revealed in an interview that even though he won the fight against an unnamed opponent. He was disappointed that he couldn't end the fight sooner and that his hands hurt from hitting his opponent's head repeatedly as he ran. Moreover according to linda bruce lee also ended up tired at the end of the fight. This proved to him. That wing chun wasn't as effective as he thought it was. He also realized that. Wing chun had very few kicking techniques so bruce lee decided to improve his techniques therefore he abandoned his wing chun style which took several years to learn and created his own style. The ccording to wong jack man. He invited bruce to a fight. Only because of bruce's open declaration that no one in san franscisco could beat him. Bruce insisted on fighting in a closed room and keeping the result secret so they fired inside a closed room. According to wong there were just seven. People had expected the fight to be serious but sportsman so he tried to set up some safety rules for the fight. However bruce intended it to be a no rules barred fight. Moreover when wong attempted to shake hands. With bruce bruce wayne to hit wong's is thereafter. Bruce repeatedly used attacks aimed at wong's is throat and groin. Wong was left to defend himself because it was obvious to him that bruce was trying to kill him yet. Wong refrained from using his signature deadly kicks which were his strongest weapons because he was afraid to go to prison. If he ended up killing bruce for the same reason he also refrained from delivering a decisive blow. Even though he had bruce's head locked under his left arm. Three times. On the contrary bruce came back into more ferociously every time wong released a headlock. According to wong the fight lasted for twenty to twenty five minutes and ended. When finally bruce became exhausted. Bruce's version had two witnesses his wife and his friend james lee who had brought a gun in case the fight got out of hand ones version to had a witness even though nobody saw him locking bruce lee's head under his left arm the biggest piece of evidence supporting bruce's version is that wong said that the fight lasted for twenty to twenty five minutes despite both of them being kung fu masters in their own. Right who might have had extraordinary stamina a fight. Lasting for twenty to twenty five minutes seems too far fetched to be true. The biggest piece of evidence supporting wong's version was the fact that a mutual friend saw one working at a cafe the very next day the only change he could see was a scratch above one. I which one claimed was inflicted during the handshake. If bruce had indeed beaten up long so badly how could he go to work. The very next day three weeks later. Bruce gave an interview claiming that he had beaten an unnamed challenger in return wong published his own version of the fight in a chinese newspaper and invited bruce for a public rematch if he wasn't satisfied with one's account of the fight however bruce responded to provocations never responded moreover some people claim that bruce lee also tried to learn kung fu from one's master but was rejected. Why would he try to learn a style of martial arts which he himself deemed was unworthy the ccording to linda. The premise for the fight. Was that the chinatown masters. Were against bruce lee teaching non chinese students however no proof supporting lynn. Zack were found. Moreover these to chinatown masters whom she accused already had a handful of non chinese students and wong himself was not against teaching non chinese students. The courting to bruce. Lee the fight against a worthy opponent didn't go as he had planned. Moreover the victory was clumsy and not quick enough but are these reasons strong enough.

"Championship the same year. Cha-cha is a cuban dance that is practiced internationally thus by the time he turned eighteen. Bruce lee had already become a meticulous martial artist. An excellent dancer. An accomplished actor. Even though bruce lee was becoming a talented young man his aggression was getting out of control. Despite yip man's teachings of harmony and self control the teenagers aggression and love for fighting had not decreased. Moreover his academic performance was getting worse too so he was transferred from lasalle college. A reputed private school to a strict school but even that did not stop him from being aggressive on the contrary his street fights became even more frequent and one such fight in nineteen fifty nine. Bruce lee beat up the wrong person which completely changed his life when he was nineteen years. Old bruce lee ran into an opponent with an organized crime background. Even though the opponent was no match for him and bruce lee won easily. The opponents family became furious and started searching for him. Even a skilled martial artist. Like bruce lee wouldn't stand a chance against a powerful criminal organization so fearing for their son's life bruce lee's parents asked him to go to the usa. Hong kong was a familiar place for bruce lee and he had many friends there moreover he was the boxing and dancing champion so he was sure that he could build a better future if he stayed in hong kong the usa on the contrary will be a completely new place. He had no friends there and would have to build his life from the beginning. So bruce lee was initially reluctant to go to the usa but ultimately he gave up due to the pressure from his parents and agreed to go to the usa. He decided to become a dance master in america and make a living by teaching people cha-cha in april nineteen fifty-nine with just one hundred dollars in his pocket. Bruce lee boarded a steamship and set sail to san francisco where his sister and family friends were on the steamship. His tickets only gave him passage to the lower deck. But people soon heard that he was the cha-cha champion of hong kong therefore the ship's crew upgraded. Bruce lee first class so that he could teach their first class passengers. Cha-cha after landing in san francisco. Bruce lee stayed there only for a short period. During this time he worked as a dance master and taught cha-cha after a few months. He moved to seattle to work as a waiter in the restaurant owned by ruby chow ruby. Chows husband was a friend of bruce. Lee's father so she gave him a job and a place to live by this time.

So bruce lee opened the lead jun fan gung fu institute in seattle in nineteen sixty two by nineteen sixty three. His school was big enough that he could support himself only by teaching kung fu so he gave up working at the restaurant and doing other odd jobs. One of his students in nineteen sixty three was linda memory a freshman at the university. Linda had seen bruce earlier when he had delivered guest lectures on chinese philosophy at her school.

"But. You talk about several things when it comes to shrinking a battlefield. First of all, it's creating niche. If we've talked about at at at length already and then creating that person combining, we've talked a little bit about we can exhibit combined existing niches that can make them more focused and define niche. You also talk about reframing a reposition, but the one element that I really loved that you do is opposition. When it comes to shrinking the battlefield. So. Talk to us about. Using opposition as a way to shrink our battle because I found this fascinating. Yeah and I love this example. I'm really pumped that you asked about that one because there's a bunch of a bunch of ways to create a niche or combining reframing all this stuff, and they're all there on the book, and that's awesome. But the one that's one of my favorites to talk about is doing the opposite, right. So how do you shrink the battlefield? If you'RE GONNA choose to focus on a certain group of people or a specialized segment of your market or something like that? Like how do you? How do you choose the right one? Well there's a great example from Jackie Chan Right Jackie. Chan. Is this martial arts you know really really famous and martial arts, but he is very different from everybody else like if you grew up a Bruce Lee fan like he did. Bruce Lee was the legend of the icon like he will never be surpassed. And how do you grow up as young martial artists? In China, how do you grow up Bruce Lee Shadow and expect to make anything of yourself in that community and in that that line of work? So Jackie Chan looked at that problem and instead of getting discouraged, he looked at it gwent. How can I do the opposite of what Bruce Lee does. Okay. Well, Bruce. Lee. Is Like A mazing. Super Fast, invincible. Well, what if I did the opposite and I was more vulnerable immuno even and showed myself getting her like did my own stunts and like showed showed the real thing happening Bruce Lee's films are pretty straightforward. Right What if we did something comedic? What if we did something that was almost slapstick? So he starts asking themselves these kind of questions. Just how can I do the opposite of the person who is the dominant name or the dominant brand in my space ends up coming up with his own blend in crates, his own genre. Basically of this kind of con- comedic martial arts. I don't even know what you'd necessarily call it But he invents his own fighting style that goes along with that expands into movies, ends up being like one of the highest paid actors of all time. One of the biggest stars in the world. And it all started by doing the opposite. And we can do the same thing right whether you are the florist whether you are a brick and mortar. Business owner whether your real estate agent whether you're coach consultant, which is the world that Iran and more taking what you know think about you know again, contrasting with Gary v like if you're in that space and you WANNA teach people how to market their business. Good luck. Just going on being another Gary v because you end up just being overshadowed by him and delivering the same message to the same people. got. Gary. V. So what are they? What are they need you for? But if you go out and you do the opposite, it gives you a chance to cut through with a message that actually speaks really really deeply to a smaller group of people and plus fun like figuring out how do the opposite you end up coming up with some really fun and interesting combinations. He may end up creating a niche that you dominate for the next thirty years. It's really

"Be Water" ESPN 30 for 30 Director: Bao Nguyen.

"From. nyu You received your MFA from the School of Visual Arts also in New, York City how important are those degrees to supplement your ability as director? I mean I, think for. You know film, school and Education, the most important thing I take away from it is like building a community and finding like minded people who love films and you kind of carry on that love after you graduated in your work together on your on your feature, your future projects and and I mean obviously the education is important, but I think the relationships you take away from it or more important now. Is there I mean I know? For those who see the documentary, they know kind of what influence you partially to really loving a certain aspect of Bruce Lee, but is there any other driving forces that really kind of? Propelled you where you are today whether it's a filmmaker or an actor or a movie itself. I remember seeing a hoop dreams when I was pretty young. I was about ten or eleven, and it was just A. He's the first time I really saw documentary like a feature length documentary, and it's such an epic story right also an intimate at the same time, and I think it's informing me of like the type of story said I'm interested in the type of storytelling I'm interested in and also kind of the power of sports in the drama of Sports, and and how you can use sports as a way to talk about bigger issues in society, and so I think that film definitely played a role in how I. How I became a documentary filmmaker and I mean it's not a directly to to be water I. think he can maybe see. Some of the piano correlation. Oh absolutely, absolutely and you know. You've done some really creative and really great projects, but we documentary like be water that you're connected. Do personally that you? Again for anyone that has seen it. For the thirtieth. The world seated at this point. You know you really have a fondness in a your linked emotionally to the person you're you're you're making the documentary on become something else at that point? Right because it's still such a beautiful work of art, but because of your connection because of the way Bruce Lee moved you. Does. It become something else at that point bow. In your for me when I'm making it film. Tired of want to infuse my own voice in the not literally. You don't hear me speaking as a narrator anything like that, but I think that films at I'm kind of drawn to are the ones that feel personal and honest and authentic, and you can really feel the directors hand. Especially in a film, we were talking about such an icon that maybe anyone else could have done a certain style of Bruce. Lee Fill of documentary about Bruce. Lee But I wanted to make sure that this felt like my film, and by kind of going deep into my roots my parents Vietnamese refugees. They left Vietnam on a boat. We're living in Hong Kong refugee camp for for six months and then. Went over to America the very similar story to Bruce's in terms of coming to America. And not having connections, not really having any money, and that was sort of the Bruce Lee that I felt like I didn't know too much. About Bruce Lee as the immigrant American as Asian, American as the other American. So, I tried to infuse like what lessons I learned from my parents, and for my own upbringing as a child of immigrants and use that to make the films feel personal and have that touch point in a way. So yeah that was that was always the intention and I hope people. Felt that kind of personal filmmaking style. Even though we're talking about an icon like briefly. Yeah, I can't even imagine what it's like. Because you talk very very early in a documentary about you know, it's the very first time you recognize yourself. Somebody on screen. That isn't stereotypical or lacking the respect. They deserve I. Mean I can't believe I mean it. Had to be an. You've answered this such a passion project just because of the effect man had on you and millions of others as well. Yeah I mean I could say that. I was in like one of those huge Bruce Lee fans at went out and collected everything and. Watched every single movie ten times over, but as a symbol, and as an icon for representation for kind of hero, and fighting for the underdog, definitely left a mark on me and again it was just trying to unpack that that that iconography that mythology that I felt. Everyone knew, but they didn't know the person, and and that being said I agree responsibility, obviously telling the story of someone like Bruce Lee but I started to think of it more as a privilege that I'm privileged to have the opportunity to tell lead story into. You know mess it up in many ways and I once. I understood it more as a privilege recognized. It made it less of a daunting task I

Allyship With W. Kamau Bell

"Recently with the whole awfulness around our president's handling of covid nineteen in the awful things he said about it. That I'm not GonNa say I'll let you guys decide if you want to say it, And just to see that there were hate crimes being committed against Asian Americans, and I was talking about that on instagram and I was shocked at the number. Of Black, people people representing themselves black. who were like? That's what they get. And sort of about how could they never ride for us? Why should we ride for them? and. It really confused me one because why would you think you are a fan of mine and also think that I would agree with that? Or have any time for that? Too. I was like sort of like in my mind like sort of like I don't understand where that comes from of course thinking about the Asian Americans in my connection to a Bruce Lee comes up and so I really started out is just sort of like my love for Bruce, Lee. Way To go there. I'm a black guy who loves something Asian American. You know. And and as I was writing it, and this is what happens to be harbory works I just start to dig into my own love for it, and but halfway through I was like Oh. This is deeper than I thought. Like I have a career guy who's anti-racist and I'm looking at Brucie's life with Mike I had never framed him as an anti-racist 'cause. Even I was looking too much of the kicks and punches. Right really got deep for me as I was writing it and like, and then to sit and watch in. You know my talk about it. I'll get caught up like like Fisa fury that scene where he says we are not sick. Men always felt like it applied to me as a black kid. like it never was never like. That he's talking about some Chinese. Japanese. Not since I was like no I. Get that feeling as be feeling like the the oppressor cannot oppress me into thinking I am not good. And I was playing fisa fury as I was writing it and I really got caught up in it in his report. Outta me, and then I posted. It just like on medium which had never posted before dislike. I don't like I don't know who's GonNa WanNa read this I. Don't know what's going to happen. I'm just GONNA. Put it up and just sort of feel like I got it out of my system. And then I was really overwhelmed by all the Asian Americans. Who felt like it spoke to them because I really wasn't even writing it. I wasn't trying to convince asian-americans anything. Well that's the beauty of it because it was so like organic and natural, and then kind of flowed into all those heavy subjects that that that it just show that how much you know that you care about this subject, and also the empathy also for what was going on with us in so that was the first time I. Think there there is Kinda like you know ally, ship, or or censorship in this situation I think that one of the things which as an Asian American who has been really I think. Reflecting on myself on my community on the role that we stand in. At this moment. Reading that that a did two things one is, it may be very very consciously fact that. As much as you wrote it in reaction to people who are saying. Hey asian-americans have not stood for US wide. We ride from them. There is a sense in which it. It forced me off of my own privilege to start thinking. Where are we in that in that conversation and have we been doing the kinds I mean? The very fact that that Bruce Lee. Did his work here in America As somebody who went out of the way the color outside the lines very through figuratively and literally somebody who brought in. The African American community, the lat next community as some of his very first pupils for an art that hitherto had been seen as something. Purposely obscured right from from other populations of color the fact that he actually went out of his way to befriend and elevate people of a wide range of races, and especially I think embrace the black community early on as a community that he had shared struggle with is something which I don't think we. Even looking beyond the kicks and punches. Think enough about. and. For me, it is, it has been an extra is saying to myself. Are we doing enough and answering. No, we are not. So, I want to say come out. It was a very profound moment to me to read that essay well. Thank you?

Be Water - The Life and Legacy of Bruce Lee

"Welcome to Jalen Jacoby the after show just watched. Be Water. The story of Bruce Lee and we are joined by the director bow win bow. What a masterpiece! Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. Well I WANNA. Start this where the film started with test footage of a young bruce leak getting camera tested for Hollywood film. Why did you side to sort of cold open with that? I think this is like a version of Bruce Lee that we're not used to seeing these kind of like Ansi anxious, not his confidence self right away doesn't know what's going on. This is his first screen test for Hollywood that he's been a part of even though in his past life in Hong Kong, he was a child star. At the same time the footage shows justice charisma as as the screen tests continues. You can just see him about to what this guy's asked. Right, onscreen and so I think it showed all the different layers that I wanted to tell the story, of Bruce from kind of Bruce's insecure, having vulnerabilities to his rise in tow like being this bad ass. Martial artists and I think within just that screen tests. There's that many layers. As a huge Bruce Lee stand myself. I applaud the work you did with this. Because I remember in my childhood making the ghetto noon Chucks or wearing the Bruce Lee shoes as we call them. Go on to see two movies and stuff like that and really mimicking a lot of what he did. What was your goal when you decided you were going to make this documentary? For me. I came in later generation. I was four in ten years after enter. The dragon came out so I wasn't going to see them in the movie theaters with Mike Chinatown up in Harlem I was watching Bruce Lee on syndication on Saturday night television, and at the time I didn't know who he was really, but I just remember like as a little kid. I wasn't used to seeing faces that look like me unscreened right, and if I did see them, they were using negative. They were like a psychic or Like a servant or a villain sustaining someone like Bruce Lee with all his energy all his. ONSCREEN CHARISMA I was like that's the first time I see a hero that looks like me, and that's when I kind of knew the mythology of for sleep, but I didn't know who was person, and that's one of the reasons I made. The film is kind of unpack that mythology in figure out how bruce turned into Bruce Lee.

Finding Simplicity in Complex Times With Julia Hobsbawm

"Good day. Now welcome to episode two hundred sixty two of live happy now. This is Paula Phelps. And I'd like to thank you for joining us once again this week. Today's world has become increasingly challenging. So it's fitting that this week we're talking about simplicity. How do you find more simplicity in a complex world? Well that's complicated in this week. Author and social commentator. Julia Hobsbawm looks at how we can live a simpler more creative and productive life. Her new book the simplicity. Principle six steps toward clarity in a complex world looks at how we can become more focused and less distracted. It's something we can all benefit from learning. So let's hear what she has to say Julia. Welcome to happy. Now thank you for having me a pleasure to be with you. Will you have a wonderful topic to talk to us about? And it's a great time to talk about it too because our lives seem very complex. And so you're talking to us about the simplicity principle. I guess to start. Can you tell me what made you want to take on this issue? Yes it is a funny time. I think a good time to be talking about symptoms tedious. When all lives became both Bruce Lee simple through lockdown but also a lot more complicated with the ramifications and implications of life next began writing seven. Right is go around. The connected age in the digital age in all the complications of that role. And I wrote a book fully connected and that book really seemed to resonate with people that were worrying about overload and then I thought well what's next for the people concerned about now. I thought it was in the end that people feel they have almost limitless choices. Limitless possibilities windows within windows and APPS and meetings and opportunities and the world was becoming so full of potential that it was also getting really complicated. And I thought what is it that we really want. We want all these opportunities. We want to be innovative and entrepreneurial allies at least I do but equally we want to not feel like we're going a bit nuts and the truth is I think we all did feel even before corona virus. That life was just really getting complicated spell. I wrote the simplicity principle to really say. Can IT BE SIMPLISAFE Walk to simplicity? Look like what's wrong with complexity in the first place and you know what a successful at like and that's what I came up with the book and why is complexity so difficult for us well in some ways complexities natural human beings a curious and you only have to look the way we like sports. That have complicated rules or hobbies have intricate ways in which you do something. Even a jigsaw puzzle is complicated. The human brain itself as an organism as about as complicated objects if you like in the world so there's nothing unnatural about impact city and everything from viruses and weather systems to ecosystems all complex. The problem I think comes down to the fact that the human being that we own all inside systems and jobs digital worlds. We're actually a bit more basic. We need sleep. We need dressed. We honked overload our brains without stressing out tuning out venturing out. And when we do that things happen which might not make light operate smoothly in other words. You want your pilot to fall asleep at the controls because they're exhausted or you don't want somebody to miss. As arguably authorities have missed the signs of endemic coming because s what the systems to warn each other and take action. Were too complicated so really. What I'm saying is at the very least. We need to balance on the spectrum. Between what is simple uncomplicated? But in an ideal world we would also give the human body and the human mind more of what we now know that needs which is simple straightforward reset nut chewing respecting the complexity respecting. That things are not straightforward. This is not a book about being simplistic. I think of things at simplistic is a bit like it's stupid. You know him wants to be stupid but simplicity is actually what sophisticated and the person who taught me. That actually was the late great my Angelo. Who I have the pleasure and privilege of working alongside for a good few years when I was a lot younger. And you want me to keep it simple. And she taught me that when you can connect with what you want and what you're Abou- and what's real and what matters sat is smart but it might also be simple as what I've tried to create is a bit of a blueprint for how to get to that simple. It's right in the middle of everything that super super complicated and one thing that makes your approach so unique and so effective is. There's a lot of books at tells. Here's how to simplify. Here's what you need to do but yours isn't just about that. You really look at how the world can open up for us when we live a simpler life all of that. So can you talk about the research that you did to discover these result? Yes I wanted to write a book. That was a like a bit of a business book on a business woman. And I'm a business writer and so I wanted to give it a magic number. Because lots of the best business books do say who it intense steps seven steps in the four ways in the and so on and I want to really structure it so that it was incredibly useful but I also wanted to a homage if you like to the philosopher and all of we're on a quest to find meaning and I think more and more we want meaning in our lives and so I thought how do I do this and so I alighted on the idea that I would write about simplicity and the human brain I would dig into the research around. Neuroscience and present some case studies at pupil could relate to as some data that says. Look this is why the human brain needs to keep it simple but I would also structure the book a little bit like a cross between a business book recipe. Frankly so that. If you like may acquire impatient to say all right I buy it. I'm into simplicity versus exte- when the line begin how do I stop that? It would be easy to pick up. The book died in and to find something within five minutes of. Reading the book that you could relate to and do that's what I want and to feedback Sephora has been quite good because I think that most of us now want just quick wins. You know we want hacks and simplicity as well as wanting to look at the deeper meaning and I think the coronavirus crisis is a really good moment to reset and rethink. What are we wanted to?

Alicia Silverstone Talks Parenting

"I've heard that he's a super super kid as well. He's very chill. He's doesn't have too many tantrums. And also your way of parenting is is very kind as well. I'm always I have three boys and they're wild. They're also within three years of each other and I find that sometimes it's really hard to teach them not to kill each other without yelling at them. So you're not having three boys and three years. What are your some other some other tips tricks up? I mean I will definitely say I have no idea what it is to have more than one child. I have one child so I you know maybe if I had another one everything that I'm saying we go out the window but I don't think so because I think that while he's super chill in his soul like he's really he's such a good little guy so sweet and loving. He's also a wild animal beast. Because he's like Bruce Lee in the kitchen. I'm like I'm trying to cook. And he's Bruce Lee. He's just watch you know he's he's he's never taken a class in his life. He's just like chopped kicking like going crazy so I think he's really athletic and really strong and really awake Really Alive and not one. Part of him is suffering from this food. Choices or lack of protein is people would say when everyone's having too much protein. Our kids are having the right amount of protein protein for your body. So he's getting everything he needs. There's zero sign of any deficiency. You know he's really doing well but in terms of how I speak to him. You know we really communicate so well and yeah. There's never been a need for me to yell at him. I remember one time. We are the pool and this was a long time ago. I think it was that we are having friends over some kind of little party and he. I said something to him because I think he splashed me or something and I said no thank you and whatever I said I said I think he hurt me back on it. You know how they always elbow you. I mean I'm constantly being elbowed in the BOOB. You know need in the chest. I mean everything. I'm just abused by his body use. No me too but whatever it was he did something that made me have a gut reaction of like no and he goes to me and he I saw his face drop and he was just like mummy. You yelled at me. I said I yelled at you. Baby I don't think you know what a yell is because I hadn't even barely raise. My voice. Slept for a hand felt like a lot because he's not used to it. Yeah and he goes. You were so serious. I said I spoke with a serious voice right. He said Yeah I said why do you think that is he? Goes because you want me to stop. It hurt me. I just wanted you to understand it hurt and it was my reaction. I that's not a yell my love. I don't Yell at you yell at me practice yelling you want to hear what a yellow but so so. I put all you have to say to him. Honestly I've always. There was a moment where we had to serve. When they're so young that you have to sort of hold them down her second like hold them till they come down and you're just go. I know baby. I know you're so upset right but as a other than that like all I have to say to him is no thank you and he goes. Okay Mama and sometimes I have to repeat myself. You know like bear please. I asked you to do this. Can you do remember and he goes. Oh Yeah and they don't forget again on the way there he forgets because these eight. That's amazing but no it's really note. There's no yelling. How do you hold that up with having twenty four hour seven day a week exposure n n I know you I mean I? It's you've had a lot of practice with it. Which I think is the is the most I mean your your mental pathways. Primed for patients and soothing. This so curious for so many MOMS by organ. Listen to this and be like I want. I want to be them. Yes in but I'm just so frazzled. All the time teach will I do? Think that the The most important foundation part of this whole thing is Mama sleep right zone Mike if I don't get a good night's sleep because I didn't eat as well as when I eat perfect food. My sleep is perfect. I wake up Mike. Bring it. What do you got? I'm ready right but if I don't eat well and then I don't sleep well. I am so extra sensitive and I'm really sensitive person to begin

The Adoption of Cryptocurrency

"I wanted this like so think. Last last week we talked about adoption over that was probably the prior week in in all like there's always a main theme of the show in. It's just weird. That like everything that we said would happen is happening. But it's like we're fighting the happening of it. That's what you mean by that. You said you said that before. We started hearted added to what you mean by the. I don't know what you mean by just now what do you mean for example. I said that you know Many many moons ago we said that You know mining is going to get to a point where we're going to see really strange. Entities Gidon into the mining game name because if now is a path to profit for them right and we. We talked about a month ago or a month and half ago about like certain states. In Russia Russia are like saying a state sanctioned mining who can hook in a straight up to the nuclear power plants. The nuclear power plant was commodity mining. Yeah and then in Iran. They're basically saying like hell. Yeah mine mine away. Because we don't like sanctions and that's clearly happening but there's not much other nation states can do about it at this point. It's just it's just happening. And you know in the US in Wyoming there's now to municipalities that are sanctioning mining and kind of giving them a free go and giving them money to build more mining farms ends overseeing Komo And then you know for for for just felt like years of my life. We talked about institutional money coming into the space in. Its here now. It's actually building the foundation of where the price goes. Now take that what. What what metrics say what Beck search tell you that institutional money is? He's here now like why ever say walking every single month coin based releases a blog that says look at how much our institutional volume is growing in Corolla Colonel Lot. It's Paul W on the growth is correct that like the rate of growth is great but the overall amount across the entire ecosystem because this is still really small so a drop in the bucket compared to like traditional finance like we cannot stop realizing that that's the case we're moving in the right direction for their a fast but we're still small. I get that but right now comparing comparing this space to traditional finance is is a exercise in futility I think it's an exercise in futility because that's not the end game of the space right now we're kind of shoehorned shoehorned into having to compare ourselves to a dollar or a euro or yaw or ruble but that's not the end game of this never been the. I'm game of the in game of this this for this to be the line in the sand that things are compared to i. Don't I don't know about that. Why I mean why? Because that was the whole impetus of like hey. We don't need those systems when we could just use bitcoin. We don't need those systems when there's a network of smart contracts that could serve those systems everything should be compared to this new truth and not that other truth that that's kind of the in game if it's not the in game. This is just a cute side project for somebody. Body like Jeff Bezos to make a lot of money off of because that's not the game off off off it off. Yeah I gave you that. There's a little bit of that in terms of like eventually. Hopefully this becomes the standard that people build on and relate themselves else to including Fiat like nations-led currencies. I believe that's already happening like you see like a river. We interviewed the Guy Bill de decentralized market or decentralized them exchange and he said that the coolest thing happening for us right now is that small nations are actually using the lighting network to finance themselves and we can call. We'll be excuse me we're GONNA be elitist incites it's microfinance but they're doing these transactions at subsidy to get a few dollars in their pocket to fucking buy bread like. That's that's an inkling of what we spoke to many many moons ago in. It just doesn't feel like I know institution money's in their gym and I hooked up with trading view which is like okay if you're one of those guys that wears the three P. suits and does coke in the bathroom at lunch. You're probably overusing TRAE. You're getting like in Doug. I'm not judging you for doing coke understand looking at that many numbers you gotta be spry gotta eat a Nice Bagel. Some coke took a job that will but of the saying that everything we spoke of is now here and I don't think everything is it's starting to be here. Why do you feel like we're fighting it? Why are we like? What makes you think we're fighting it? Because I don't it's like for example we we ranted and raved about about side chains. We got him now the going. But then everybody's like l. that's a fucking federated blogging blahdy Blah. That's a piece of Shit Shit and I'm like it's not though there's like five major exchanges doing very high volume bitcoin transactions in that aside chain that is audible. Now yes it's federated but that's literally something we rant and rave about in its here in. It's working and now people you're like will man arguing school. Buses are painted yellow and blue. And it's like fuck you guys one at school buses so safer for the kids. They're all one color but you're mad because they're blue and not yellow. What the fuck a little over the top? I would say there's A. There's a few things things that contribute to that one is Like this ridiculous infighting that's happening thing between everyone that's inside the space based on what project thereon against the projects that do something similar in a slightly different way but basically you covering the same issue and this like the venom that could spread that gets. That's under the guise of trolling. But it's really just I you know US versus them. Mentality of everyone tried to the same thing. I feel like most people who are deep in the weeds. Have the people were deep in the weeds up becoming a lot of like the people other people in new entrance look up to and into being influencers whether they want to or not and there's just like venomous US versus them infighting that's that's detrimental to the space. As a whole and of time. I think people have lost a lot of the initial ideology of why we're doing this. Or what the end goal was and they make compromises and concessions to try and get something out the door in marketing push go a little hyperbole. What they're offering as opposed to like what they're really doing and and vitually the technology will get better so that it'll make them obsolete to like? I think a lot of the things we have now is because the technologists technologists and scale well enough not fast enough. You don't have the Innovation Shit to like do it. The way we want to make these interim companies that do it the way we can that makes a lot of compromises like for instance just like coin basis so big because the most the technologists and scale and so you have to have these these centralized things that sit on top that allow the people who want to use the stuff to use it at the convenience they want but ah at a more constrained set of like trust and delegated responsibilities like that and we're like well that's not. That's not what I signed signed up for when I enjoyed bitcoin and people are coming in. It's like why Jordan bitcoin big money who gives a shit say it. It's getting bigger and you're getting more people who have different a different views or cares and mixed with people building things that make concessions because they have to get get something out the door and then there. Oh Jeez that are trying to build something that doesn't make concessions but it doesn't work very well but they have a bunch of funding from early days and they're like well what do you do it like. There's so many different things going on. But it's gotten so much bigger like if we were to look back where we started. I if we woulda to had all of this back then maybe we would have been right and we were saying like it's just around the door like adoptions just around the door saying that when we started waited like deductions about to happen. Guys it's just right there. Were almost there just a few more things and it's been five years. We're still like we're actually really. They were so far away. It's the things that get adopted. This is one the things that I've I've finally come to peace with the things that get adopted. Have a ridiculous a torrential amount of funding. Let's just about like crooked. There was this there was this camp. There was a policy like down the street from the Wright brothers doing the same thing but the Wright right brothers older sister was basically financing their entire marketing campaign literally created a newspaper just to talk about their shit and distributed it within the cities and this update fuck man like weakest lie to like. We're doing the same shit. Where'd you learn that? I had to watch the documentary on it when I was in college. How's my engineering degree? We had to write a documentary in report. Because you know there's always that one professor dislike you will watch a movie about my fucking Hebrew and write a report. What about it so I can tune with my core values will euro year? I'll do the same thing. We're going to be derided book reports fucking Bursley like like. You're teaching a class on finance. You shut the fuck up. Bruce Lee knows everything about finding really lots documentary But Lega and then the same thing basically happened with Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison right the same exact thing. Thomas Edison is an bodied him out because marketing and money and the government like Thomas. Edison fucking politician Bro. I got this new electricity to well. How about this and The thing that spawned everything. We're talking about. Do you mean bitcoin. It didn't have all too crazy marketing and backing to get to be the thing. That's mainly adopted at this entire space. Very true it's actually the first thing in his street. St Paul One of the first things in history that that is probably the case. Like it's almost the exact opposite that's very true so it has to be like a reversion has got to a certain point everything that builds off of it kind of goes back in the old ways. Because that's a there's I don't think there's anything in the CRYPTO currency space. That will redo what Dick wanted because the cats out of the back right like you can't you can't redo proof of work that way it's going to get co opted to early because there's too much attention attention and understanding and experience and and and money in the space to not co Ogden. If there's a bill you could've you could've eagerly screwed things up in the early days if there was enough money attention and resources a dedication to doing

Matthew Polly on 'Bruce Lee: A Life'

"Talk Bruce Lee with Matthew polly. The book is Bruce Lee. We live by Matthew polymath. UGALI joins US now. I love this book I knew I was GONNA love it. I love your story which I wanNA share with our listeners. At the end of this. Because you're about is unique it guys. It gets But Bruce was somebody is I've seen in in some of your lectures who became more famous. This guy's pursuit of fame and fortune. which was clearly a driving driving factor in his success unfortunately he died before he understood the iconic status that he would reach Although that was starting to happen certainly back home and then and carried over over here so just to set it up for the listeners. Bruce Lee born November twenty seventh nineteen forty in San Francisco which I know will surprise. People his father was a theater performer. A comedic actor with his own amazing story where he was singing outside of a restaurant and some travelling theatre groups saw him and then took him in and he traveled with them His background ground isn't the one hundred percent Chinese. As you mentioned you had a Dutch Jewish grandfather which chain who changed his name so that was kind of hard to figure out. I know for years. There's people thought he was a German descent as well. That was not the case. It's actually English in that led to a bunch of problems that he was not a hundred percent Chinese but he was a child star. Matthew and I think that's kind of the foundation of for those of us that didn't understand it. His father was a performer and Bruce's a performer. For a very long time at a very young age twenty films by the age eighteen eighteen. How much do you think that kind of set up his own aspirations for himself once he started travelling going back to the United States? I think that's the key I found in researching the book because the image of Bruce's this martial arts master who kind of accidentally gets into movies. It's almost as if he's the real person onscreen as opposed to an actor playing characters and when you realize that. His first appearance was when he was three months old and his career starts in earnest at six. And you see him play all sorts of roles that have nothing to do with Kung Fu movies. You realize that. He was an actor following in his father's footsteps and in many ways I think he was driven by that kind of Eto Eto conflict to outdo his father who was quite famous in Hong Kong when he was growing up it. was you know anyone that's trying to do this. This kind of stuff to become famous right. Hey I wanna be a big movie star. You have to be wired a certain way and him having that kind of success early on and he was actually like would incorrect me at any point throughout this offer anything but he was he was starting to have some major roles there where he was he was a star so I think he wants. He goes to the United States. We're going to into here. It's almost like look. I expect to have the same level of success as observed may have sounded at that time. That's right I think it gave him a real confidence confidence and some would say arrogance that he was somebody who was sort of fawned over from a very young age he was on said everyone. Buddy was cute. You know by the time. When he was ten he was he started in a very successful movie then? His career took a little bit of a dip but the last film Within the orphan was a huge huge hidden was the first film that ever played in an international film festival. So Bruce Lee thought of himself is an important person. He was a celebrity in Hong Hong Kong and so when he came to America he didn't feel like somebody. Just knock off. The boat was desperate to like just survive. He thought he should be a big deal here. Too Who and I think he needed that because the kind of racial barriers face were so high and it'd be hadn't had that kind of fundamental competence. He never would have achieved what he did so before he leaves for the State's he's in school. He's a terrible student. But and I cannot express this enough in you. Hammer it in the book and this is something that I kinda like. This was not some fake martial arts guy that maybe we grew up with in the eighties. Nineties that Bruce Lee was legitimate streetfighting. Getting bad ass. That would fight anybody. And he was training Would would not necessarily different styles. It was more traditional styles in it mon who was somebody who would become famous himself or was famous at the time. I people didn't want to train. When can you share with us? Just how real of a Guy Bruce was and that when he was much more concerned with fighting almost anyone who wanted to fight him even if he wasn't winning more than he was trying to be a student some pretty boy on on film. That's right. Hey what's interesting is from a very young age. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and he was the kid who was always going around saying you you got you got trouble with me like he was starting fights he wasn't this wasn't self defense. This was self offense and the only reason he took up martial arts is because he got into so many street fights he finally found the guy who was better than on him and this guy studied under if mon the style of Wing Tongue and Bruce Lee only took it up because he wanted to be better than the guy who had beaten him and a fight because he couldn't couldn't stand the idea that he wasn't the Best Street fighter in the neighborhood and so- martial arts him with simply an extension of streetfighting. It wasn't the other way around. He wasn't bullied kid got picked on and started studying martial arts the kind of classic tale that we're all sympathetic to. He was a genuine sort of rough around the edges. Tough Guy who'd like to start things off and martial arts. was an extension of his sort of aggression And in fact he was so aggressive that the only reason he ended up going to the states wants because the police were going to arrest him. If his parents didn't do something about his constant streetfighting yet did he. Did you know that there's different pieces of great going through stuff and then reading the book and like man. Bali really cleans it up as much as you possibly could. But did he was he actually was was there a hit on him from the triads for beating up like the son of a gang member. That's yes I think that the story that One of his friends from a high school tells Unfortunately that friend tends to tell tall tales And he's the only one who says it so I think what happened was that he he beat up somebody who was important but not a try at number because in general tried members settle things themselves. They don't go to the police for so Basically a he beat up the kid of a well to do family who didn't have access to thugs to sell it themselves and so they went to the police. Did he pull a knife on teacher he did. He had a teacher the PE teacher used to when they were running around the track would take a along we'd essentially long switch grass and switch the kids on the back of the legs if they were going to slowly And it hurt. And and they didn't like it but Bruce Lee brought a switchblade in his pocket his shorts and one day when the teacher whipped him he turned around. Flip the blade open and charge the P.. Teacher who immediately ran away and Bruce Lee was chasing across the field the PE teacher with a knife in his hand so this isn't like like he was kind of a bad boy. This is the genuine article. Yeah absolutely so nineteen fifty-nine he goes to the states he graduates I believe a technical high school. He enrolls in Washington Drops out not immediately from from time. Line that I have. But but what was going on with him kind of his his moved to the United States his thoughts. I know he's working in a restaurant but now he's practicing martial arts arts and he's kind of entering that first whether or not people thought it was bullshit not because I think there's some real truth in the book where it's like. At times he could have been a little annoying with his philosophical Stuff but he's clearly figuring himself out to these transitional years before we get to kind of the Hollywood chapter and understanding how important he is a martial arts. Yes so what's fascinating about. His story is when he got to America he he he had that kind of instant. Almost instant immigrant turnaround story. Where he he decides? I want to be a success here. The way my life was going in Hong Kong was bad Leading towards the dark place. How can I change this so so? He didn't become a student but he came a much more dedicated student. He got into the University of Washington. He Fell in love with philosophy And took that up as one of his main interests But I think the more important thing was he because he came from Hong Kong. which at that time? It's not a major film industry with basically like the Nigerian film industry like it was popular in the region but no one else watched their films. He never thought thought it was possible to be an actor in the states and so he decided that the way he was gonna make a living in America wants to teach Kung Fu to everyone in opening sort of chain of Kung Fu Kinda CTO JOE's across the country to be the Ray Crock of Kung Fu and so it was at the University of Washington where he realized he could get Caucasian students interested in signing up for his classes and that made him sort of the first. I come through instructor to teach a kind of non Chinese audience. And that's what's interesting is that he mentally gave up the idea of being an actor for about four or five years but it ended up catching up with him anyway so for awhile. All he thought about was martial arts and martial arts instruction and man that led him to rejoin his acting career. There's some really revealing stuff about how ahead of his time. He was when you think about nutrition. The exercises working with weights. I mean this is somebody who was was as wiry sinewy as as you I can imagine is as far as his physique but it wasn't all genetics like he was eating these basically smoothies before they were called smoothies. Right like peanut butter bananas eggs even raw hamburger meat and he would just drink these things and he was doing all sorts of exercises working with dumbbells. Concentrate like at this point. It feels like this is when he's deciding that whatever I'm going to be. I'm going to be physically tuned as perfectly like he feels like the first of the closest thing we have to an actual superhero as he's learning his craft in obviously supplementing with everything that he can get his hands on that he thinks is healthy for him. which again felt like very? Maybe you could say it's the sixties a lot of people doing that kind of stuff but at least reading this stuff. I'm like I feel like I see these posts from girls doing dead lifts on Instagram all the time and he was doing and sixty. That's right well what what's interesting is. It was such a niche thing in America the sort of weightlifting craze and some of the magazines that were the equivalent of say muscle and fitness at that time. But Bruce who's instantly gravitated towards those and it would have been easy. You know took thirty or forty years before that overtook American culture in general But at that time time for such a small group of people who are into protein shakes vitamins but bruce immediately gravitated towards I think partly because he grew up. He almost died as a a a baby During the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and so he grew up physically more frail than the other boys and this it's always bothered him and I think he saw this as a way to make for a childhood deficit but then clearly he realized something that no other martial arts at at the time realized. which is this kind of weightlifting? Regimen could really enhance your skill level. in the same way that athletes of that era didn't lift weights alert. Do any of the things that they do now and so he was really kind of on the cutting edge of the modern

Kale Yeah, He Did It!

"The long awaited day is finally here and for those of you who have been listening and following the podcast and stay one. You know that joe inga bronx firefighter has come an enormously along way to be toned up at the starting line today in six months he has figured out how to navigate eating plan strong wrong and staying plan strong in what i would consider the most hostile environment on the planet which is a firehouse where he is surrounded rounded by foods that are off plan accrue guys who are less than enthused about his food choices so i've gotta give joe major major kudos it has been super exciting to cochin and watched joe from the sidelines as he's grown and matured and and now ultimately decided to own this plan strongly style now before i share the actual triathlon with you today today. I want to invite you to drop in on a recent conversation that i had with a plan strong brother. His name is james lightning lightening wilkes and he and i talk about protein and specifically what this lifestyle does and eating this way <hes> <hes> can do to fuel your performance and i think it will help explain to you a little bit why joe and for all of you at home why you're able to do a a triathlon a five k. a. marathon and recover so well for those of you that don't know james is the producer of the much anticipated upcoming film the game changers it is gonna launch <hes> globally in over two thousand theaters on monday a september sixteenth and it is going to be nothing short of a game changer. James is a former m a fighter later turn plant strong crusader and as you're going to see in the film he discovered the truth about plants while he was recovering from two you need injuries that took him out of the ring for several months and what he learned launched him on a quest to expose the most dangerous myth on the planet and in the process james has become one of the greatest experts on protein and the power of plants in the world. Let's listen in. I think that <hes> one of the things that you address. It's probably the primary thing is what i think you you guys have dubbed the world's most dangerous myth what is the world's most dangerous myth well. I think the underlying with the most dangerous myth is real men eat meat. There's there's all these myths above that you need me for protein or too strong strong to be healthy but especially in that male demographic that real many meet methods is really strong. <hes> <hes> and i mean you look at your her year. Background is mixed martial artists. <hes> probably one of the most masculine subliminal you know face to face combat sports and here you are you you get injured and now you go on the search for the truth and nutrition following. I think some of the principles that you learned from from bruce lee right exactly i mean you know he was always in search for truth and combat which i was on the same path right and his philosophy was research experience absorb what is useful reject what is useless and add what is specifically around raleigh just listening to and this is what i used to do as a listen to what was written about in bodybuilding magazines fitness magazines or online you really got to cut through all of that and start looking at the research wjr and when you look at the research is really quite clear. Especially in the last ten to fifteen years has been a better understanding of the components that are in animal foods that are bad for you and the components plant foods that are beneficial <hes>. It's really very clear that are applying based is optimal not just the health but also athletic performance. I think one of the one of the great saying i heard originally from you was to drop the the bro science right that you're going to hear at the g._m. Yeah you're gonna hear all sorts of stuff at the gym but that's just again stuff people have read online and then <hes> perpetuated in the gyms so what what's bro science. What are some of the things that these guys in the gyms are are being told well one of the biggest things obviously is you know how much protein you need but more specifically it's like weady protein protein from and there's this really strong myth and this pro science that you have at protein from animal foods whereas in reality you know all protein originates implants can't animals are just the middleman and basically animals are doing you a disservice. They're taking all of those beneficial nutrients that you could be getting and in return giving you all of these inflammatory molecules so it's all about the package right you can get protein in animal foods. You can get a protein implant foods the original source but the package which it comes with fiber fell late <hes> these antioxidants versus an animal foods. You've got these inflammatory compounds like <hes> t._m._a. Oh and agee's new five g. All these things that it was fun to learn about these lost sort of ten fifteen years in the literature heme iron he mind yeah exactly you say him. I say him <hes> yeah so we're starting to realize that even the he minded self is inflammatory and even the animal protein protein the amino acid profile of animal foods is also yeah. I think what is so fascinating to me. Is that in america erika. We've had the discussion about good fats bad fats. We've had the discussion about good carbs. You know kinda bad carbs but really what's never been put on. The table is good protein. Bad protein is just like well protein. You can't get enough of it. The only way to get it is from animal products vary products and it's like that's why to me. It is truly the world's most dangerous myth because everybody's convinced that you know if <hes> if i don't get enough protein amana wither up i'm adine ivine <hes> or i'll be hospitalized for protein deficiency in you. I mean you you guys delve into that in a beautiful a film it's not just the protein is when you start eating like that. You're reading obviously animal foods which are the leading cause of of death in this country in the western world up primarily due to what people are eating so it's not just the proteins that package and everything that people are eating so the leading cause of death in the western world a priority caused by what people eat right and so it's killing more people than anything else and it's also really bad for the planet and also you'll the animals also dying as well so it really is the world's most dangerous man i could not be more excited about the game changes film. I know it is going to move the needle and helping people wake up to what is marketing hype in what is factual actual if you think about joe and the overhaul that he has done in his life the idea of training for any athletic feat seemed virtually impossible people at the beginning of his journey he had zero energy he had tried and failed numerous times to adopt a regular fitness regime in the the past but he would either injure himself or he be so sore for a week or more that he would then abandon the idea and move on but during our time together he was able to consistently put one foot in front of the other and his fuel source was so clean and plan strong long that he has not had any setbacks along the way and his recovery time has been accelerated immensely so when thinking about joe's joe's experience. I want you to now imagine professional athletes. If joe can train and get stronger in recover faster while on a plant strong diet just think what that could mean for these professional athletes well wait until you see the game changers because we show on on the big screen real impactful and visual results with some pretty reluctant experimental subjects including pro football players yes and with my help a group of new york city firefighters from brooklyn. Now let's turn this over to james and hear what he he has to say about what he's learned about blood circulation and how it's affected by what we eat you another thing to me. That was so brilliant about the way you laid out. The game changers was what you did with these n._f._l. Athletes the receivers for the at the time the miami dolphins and you were able to show again what can happen with with your blood in just after eating a a meat vate meat-based meal versus a veggie based meal <hes> <hes> can you talk a little bit about that. Show i mean so that you can draw the blood offer meal and separate it out using a centrifuge and it's called post-prandial post-prandial i._p. May which means fat in the blood after eating and you can really see a difference when the when there's not much fat in the blood is sort of looks like olive when he separated out and when they found the blood it looks much more like elmer's glue in so <hes> so once translucent right and when you can't see exactly and so with the animal animal based foods you can see within an hour or so and then getting locked up for six or eight hours you can see that the the plasma in the blood when you separate out the red blood cells from the plasma very cloudy and when the happens reducing endothelial function. It's been up to fifty percent on ultrasound. You're going to see reduction of the arteries on dilating openness much which means less blood which that oxygen must nutrients to the muscles and all the organs in the body so you just not functioning as well right the plant based meals. Don't have that effect in the doctor that helped you. That was dr robert vogel. Who's the co. Chairman woman is the coach of the cod clues <hes> committee on cardiovascular health right right. I mean again incredibly powerful scene and i'm just will open up. I think people's is tremendously another thing that we did and this was utilizing myself as we went into a firehouse firehouse right right in <hes> in new york city and i think we had about thirty five thirty five new york city firefighters and we wanted to show them what what happened with their weight their blood pressure and their lipid panel in just seven days right. I mean you've been getting those results over and over again right outside of that just keeps each replicating itself. You go plant based for a week during this whole plant based foods and you're seeing a drop in allie-allison you're dropping total cholesterol improved blood blood pressure dropping triglycerides. It's you know so if you didn't if the experience hasn't been done and it hasn't been tested you would think it's almost unbelievable to happen in such a short short period of time. It's amazing how your body has the ability to heal itself and much better when you're putting in the right fuel. So why did you in. Joseph and louis decide that doing this with a bunch of firefighters would be good for the film. I think it's a great group of rio brioni meet with you know like we talked about before and you know so firefighters athletes soldiers those types of people that traditional additional sort of male role models and so we thought it'd be a good group and you. You are <hes> going out to that talking. Put him on that trial a great thing to film and i think it it worked out really well yeah yeah well. I was honored to be part of it. Thank you for that

'Be Like Water' is Your New Mantra

"Be like water making its way through the cracks so my two cents on that is to really fight to be malleable in life with the good with the bad and i have had my share of the good and the bad <hes> personally professionally on my own with my spouse with my family. Many of you have as well so that's the challenge right so water. We've seen it look at the rain. It comes down your sidewalk goes into the cracks at finds worded get somewhere through the odds of falling from the sky thousands of feet in the air hitting your sidewalk to finding a path to go down the cracks but it finds a way in a lot of the times in our lives. It is supra warming just like a huge rainstorm where it's like. Where's that water to go that overflows the cracks and and you know it'll be hard at times. Sometimes it'll be crystal clear. I've had times recently with my children have a twelve eight and six year old boys. Sometimes it's super super heart of where that water with emotions going to go because it's it's super full because of what is going on whatever situation is sometimes. It's like hey look at them. They're upset. They're scared they don't understand. Let's let's bring get down. Let's let's talk through this. Let's work through it. Let's be like water rights as a personal thing sue professionally same thing right. Something could be going bad could be going off the rails at work whether you're on the street wearing those cargo pants and boots whether you're in a cube farm. It doesn't matter stress levels rules vary. There's different things that bring it up but the thing is how do you look at that situation. How do you look at those around you and how do you adapt to their face in their body language and how they're talking to you in the crack other voice or the fear in their eyes when they don't know what to do. You're there because they called nine. One one be like water give but adjusted the object and shout find a way around through it powerful stuff bruce. Lee was a genius man he he had a lot of folks in a super. You're talking about brazilian jiu jitsu of benefit for going on a year now so super new but being forty five have been around life for a bit right so i can apply that life to what to do on the mat store to do here my home to how i apply that and so when you think about that you knew find her around something through something and so when i first started this is your positioning power does not dictate seem success right so you just gotta blasts is through people or you're going to work through there. You're going to adapt. Do you have an ability to adapt to who are at the time and your teammates and support and it's our we're not the same exact people at any given point in time right.

Today and you're writing a story and all of a sudden. The shirt sturt squeezing on you. How do you feel really good question. I wasn't able to test out the shirt unfortunately lately but i imagine that <hes> that would freak me out a little bit. I feel it'd be like a surprise every time. I don't know how i feel about that. You feel about the bruce lee. The bracelet was okay. <hes> it was a little finicky so i think i if you want something more consistent. You might want to stick to something else but but <hes> i personally can't imagine wearing something solely dedicated to this one thing but <hes> you know what you want and your relationship. There's no need to you. You know think about what other people think about you. The products that you looked at what was your favorite. The friendship lamps were by far my favorite <hes> they are lamps that you can just touch them and <hes> they will pop up wherever your significant other jose with a fun color. <hes> may really pretty. It's not invasive into you your everyday life <hes> it fits in with the decor because it's very minimalistic and i thought it was just a lot of fun to play around with and the stupidest okay probably the pillow talk speaker. <hes> it's a speaker that you put underneath your pillow and it plays your partners heartbe <hes> <hes> wherever they are they're sleeping and they have the wristband on and it's not stupid because the concept it's <hes> the thing that i didn't like about is how difficult it was to integrate into everything everything so. It must connect your phone through the headphone jack well. I'm an iphone user. I don't have a headphone jackson's okay. I have to get a dog or something else and then <hes> i and then there's some other complications with a and it just didn't seem like all that trouble to go through when you can if that's something that you want to do you can call them facetime and fall asleep that way you could also record joe's heartbeat the next time you see him. I'm going to skip out on that but you know you do you. That's what's you're into. That's good for you. <hes> okay so you look all these products and the one you liked the most was the lamp regulated by it. <hes> it's a little pricey. It's one hundred fifty dollars per se <hes> maybe as a gift for a special occasion but it's not something that i would buy ah on on the whim just because i wanted to do it but there are other options on amazon who which are similarly priced so. It's not something you want to buy directly from the the developer. There's other people you can buy through amazon from two. It solved the problem. Any of these products solve the problem. The problem is i wish i was in the room with with that person. I would say yeah. I think it's i think it's a different way to show that this. This is what how i think of it. It's showing that you're thinking of that person because texting and phone calls and face timing is such a you know everyday thing that it's a different way to shows instead of. Tell that you're thinking about someone so i would say yeah. I think that it was kind of nice to be like this. Is something different that not everybody has.
