Hey guys it was very tiring to dig out something new on martial arts and recently i found very old video footage of "Bruce Lee playing table tennis" with Nunchakus, its really great to see him...
It's been posted (twice) and it's been deemed and proven a fake... (sorry :idunno: ) hate to bust your bubble on that one.
Lee was GOOD but not THAT good. :uhyeah:

It's still pretty amusing though. Although I wonder what the JKD practitioners think.

I am curious: fake in that the guy was not Lee or fake in that the footage of him was superimposed where the original opponent would have been?

Not doubting you on the fake part; just curious as to how it was engineered.

"Bruce" was played by a lookalike, and the ping pong ball was computer animation (like the Forrest Gump movie)

According to Sifu Dan Inosanto (who taught him nunchucks), Bruce wasn't really into them. Sijo Bruce Lee's focus had been on unarmed combat, and he just learned the chucks for the movies. I understand he was using prop plastic chucks for most of the scenes (for his and his opponent's safety).

if you look at some of the scenes in his movies, you can see the nunchakus bend. Same thing with the escrima sticks.

Ha, but as the Queen of England said once, "If it was not true, then it ought to have!"

Can you imagine someone being THAT good?
