Seeing the lost footage of "Game of Death" was awesome ... the explanation of the 5 levels in the pagoda ... each floor contained a different "stylist" which Bruce had to fight.
Top floor ....Kareem Abdul Jabbar from the LA Lakers who is 7 feet tall --- the "no stylist".

The show was on twice last night ....
Maybe Maciej can refer us to where we can obtain dvd of show.http://www.karateforums.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=3433&forum=2

I saw that last night with my dad. My dad and I watch the show and talk about it. One thing came up was that Bruce Lee did alot for the martial art and for the Asian community but he was not an actual fighter, meaning he never actually competed. Although, he did teach some of the great fighters like Joe Lewis and Chuck Norris, he never competed himself.

In the Game of Death, the fight scenes were only one techique, no combinations. In actual sparring or fighting, throwing combinations would be more beneficial than throwing one techique. Then we were reminded that it was only a movie, when we noticed the rubber nunchucks.

Kareem Jabbar's kicking technique were alittle sloppy, especially his spinning side kick.

The documentary was good and the interview of Bruce Lee was informative.

Yes agreed .... and the footage of that fight sequence was slowed down they explained in order to view the techniniques. Kareem seemed to lack power aside from this fact.

Note: I got image to work this time!

I happened to catch the special...Very entertaining...It shed some light on the man, his life, and I really enjoyed the footage of the awesome sidekick that he threw at the exposition. He had some power. Good show!
