Remembering the Master: Bruce Lee, James Yimm Lee & the Creation of Jeet Kune Do
Blue Snake Books
212 pag. paperback 15 x 23 cm
Together, Bruce Lee and his comrade, friend, and mentor James Yimm Lee changed the world of martial arts forever. During the period known to martial arts aficionados as the Oakland Years (1962-1965), the two men lived and trained together, and their mutual collaboration evolved into the now-famous fighting art known as Jeet Kune Do. Remembering the Master chronicles this formative period in Bruce Lee's life for the first time ever. Family members, students, and friends share anecdotes and stories, while writings by prominent martial artists—including Al Novak, George Lee, Al Dacoscos, Leo Fong, Eric Lee, and David Cox—reflect on the men's profound influence and enduring legacy. Never-before-published photos from James Yimm Lee's own scrapbook convey a vivid sense of the people, places, events, and experiences of this exciting era.
