Four decades after Enter the Dragon was released, Warner Bros. has created a special edition of the Bruce Lee classic that has been remastered and will include plenty of bonus features.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition gift set on June 11, 2013. The best-known of Bruce Lee’s films has been remastered and will be packaged with bonus materials, including a featurette titled No Way as Way and commentary from a variety of luminaries. The set also will include collectible art cards and an embroidered patch. Enter the Dragon was a theatrical hit 40 years ago, when it grossed $25 million domestically — the equivalent of $180 million today. The title has sold more than 450,000 units on DVD and Blu-ray since 2004. In 2004 Enter the Dragon was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” On July 20, 1973 — a month before the movie premiered — Bruce Lee died in Hong Kong. He was 32.

To Master the Supreme Philosophy of Enshin Karate, Look to Musashi's Book of Five Rings for Guidance!

In the martial arts, we voluntarily subject ourselves to conflict in a training environment so we can transcend conflict in the real world. After all, we wouldn't knowingly train in a style that makes us weaker or worsens our position. The irony of all this is that we don't want to fight our opponent. We prefer to work with what an opponent gives us to turn the tide in our favor, to resolve the situation effectively and efficiently.The Japanese have a word for this: sabaki. It means to work with energy efficiently. When we train with the sabaki mindset, we receive our opponent's attack, almost as a gift. Doing so requires less physical effort and frees up our mental operating system so it can determine the most efficient solution to the conflict.In this essay, I will present a brief history of sabaki, as well as break down the sabaki method using Miyamoto Musashi's five elements
