The Year of the Dragon 2012!

Happy Chinese New Year, one and all! Celebrations officially begin today to welcome the year of the water dragon, and festivities around the world see reading of fortunes and happy people taking time to gather together in honor of this momentous occasion! In my mind, however, we also celebrate the astrological time of the year when one superb and legendary martial artist was born. He was called Lei Seil Loong or "The Little Dragon", and it may not be familiar to most people at first, but you know him better by his American and Screen name... BRUCE LEE.

Bruce Lee, 2012 The Year of Dragon

In commemoration of the Year of the Dragon and the founder of Jeet Kune Do (The Way of the Intercepting Fist), this YouTube video by one hungmanfay showcases the man who became a legend through his passion and determination as a martial artist. I found this to be extremely well done, and it pays tribute to not only the man called the Dragon, but the year he was born in as well. Enjoy, and Kung Hei Fat Choi!

"I always learn something, and that is: to always be yourself. And to express yourself, to have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate him". - Bruce Lee
