MMA Video: Impact of Bruce Lee on Combat Sports

| by

Roots of Fight has released its latest short film featuring a “fighter’s” look at Bruce Lee and the influence his philosophy/art Jeet Kune Do has had on the culture of combat sports. The new film, Bruce Lee JKD, features combat sports luminaries describing Bruce Lee’s impact on the fight game and how Lee was the first man to practice mixed martial arts.

“He was the first one to create mixed martial arts because he took the first forms of fighting and made his own form, Jeet Kune Do,” says UFC middleweight contender Mark Munoz, “Which is about taking each style and make it part of your own.”
