A famous person in your country (New):
When you mention a famous person in your country, the person off the top of my head is bruce lee. He has always been my favorite star ever since I watched his movie – Enter the Dragon – for the first time at the age of 15.
And the reason I like him is not because some cliché like his philosophy of Chinese martial arts, or because he overcame racial odds, and broke the box office record even after his death, not all that.
The real reason is that: he kick ass on the big screen. I really like the way how he fight with the opponents with great agility and wildcat strike. He had a very strong lower back, probably even stronger than some pro boxers, so he was able to lift an object 3 times his body weight from the ground to his stomach. He was a confident and cool badass, very strong and very powerful, and I think that was what I was looking for when I was a teenager.
I’ll give you an example, I think it was one of the scenes in the movie Enter the Dragon, where he initially deflected the attack from his opponent using forearm, and then simultaneously responded by landing his fists on the opponent face. Then he landed even more fists on his opponents’ face, chest, and stomach, following a side kick. He then finished it with a powerful fist on the face. And the whole fight was done less than 10 seconds, it’s just amazing how he did that in less than 10 seconds.
