The Bruce Lee Foundation, in conjunction with Network Entertainment and filmmaker Pete McCormack, has completed work on a documentary titled I Am Bruce Lee. This Bruce Lee documentary will be screened on February 9 and February 15, 2012, in more than 160 theaters located in 60 cities across the United States. The movie highlights the stylized action Bruce Lee popularized in his movies and puts it all in context by sprinkling in seldom-seen archival footage from Bruce Lee interviews. “My family and I are so proud of this film, which truly portrays the legacy of my father and his incredible story,” said Shannon Lee, who served as the film’s executive producer.

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend.
