Roots of Fight revisits Bruce Lee’s impact on the evolution of mixed martial arts with a new mini documentary featuring rare footage of Lee and a capsule collection. This mini-doc Features commentary from some of MMA’s finest, including Paul Lazenby, Eddie Bravo, and Ralek Gracie.
The film examines the evolution of Lee’s style from Wing Chun to his opening Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute, to his ultimate realization that the best fighter, the most complete fighter has no style at all.
“I do not teach karate because I do not believe in style,” said Lee. “When you don’t have style, you can say, here I am as a human being, how can I express myself totally and completely.”
Lee went on to develop Jeet Kune Do (the way of the intercepting fist) a form of Gung Fu that he believed to be a philosophy rather than a style.
“The attitude that you build your own style using whatever works for you,” says Paul Lazenby, “That very thought is the cornerstone of modern mixed martial arts.”
