From orient to occident

Hello everyone,

After India, I propose we keep our trip around asiatic culture. How many of us have dream of fighting as well as a ninja?

Oriental marrtial arts are often called Kung-fu. What’s interesting about that is that Kung-fu is not really a violent martial art. Matter of fact, it was first originated on the need orientals had to hunt and to defend themselves.

Old orientals cultures were known for their “mastery of the Qi”. And to mastery it, they created different martial arts like Shaolin Kung-fu, Tai-chi, etc. The perfect example of it would be the manga “Dragon Ball” where Son Goku master the power of his Qi to defend himself, he calls it “Kamé Hamé Ha” (check the link^^).

Bruce Lee brought oriental martial arts to occident. He opened the way for other chinese stars like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. But as well to occidental stars like Jean-Claude Van-Damme, Steven Seagal or even the immortal Chuck Norris.

People often discuss which one between Bruce and Chuck is the strongest, well, i hope the video below will help you answer this question.

Althought Bruce Lee is dead now, he is still immortal for a lot of us. Without any doubts we could say that he was more than a human, he was a superhuman.

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”
