The transcript below is from the video β€œBruce Lee Real Fight with Enter The Dragon Stuntman” by BruceLeeRealFight.

Linda Lee Cadwell (Teacher, Martial Artist, Writer & Bruce Lee’s Wife):

During the filming of Enter the Dragon, I was frequently on the set. Bruce was very open about bringing the family on the set.

Welcome to BruceLeeRealFight channel. Was there a real fight between Bruce Lee and a stuntman during the filming of Enter the Dragon in 1973? The answer is absolutely yes. You can find the entire story in one of our previous videos in this channel. This story was witnessed by a few people who happened to be there, including Bob Wall, Jim Kelly, Ahna Capri, Peter Archer and also Bruce Lee’s wife Linda Lee Cadwell. If you are wondering what actually happened when the stuntman from Enter the Dragon challenged Bruce Lee on the set, let’s listen to the interview of Linda.

Linda Lee Cadwell (Teacher, Martial Artist, Writer & Bruce Lee’s Wife):

There was one extra on the set who, I guess thought he would just see if Bruce was really a martial artist or was just an actor who was faking it. And between takes when the extras are sitting around, standing around and Bruce had a little time on his hands, one of these extras was goading Bruce all the time, like teasing him, like saying, you know, you’re not any big stuff. I bet you can’t do a sidekick and da da.

Linda Lee Cadwell (Teacher, Martial Artist, Writer & Bruce Lee’s Wife):

And normally, this kind of thing did not phase Bruce at all because he had evolved to that stage of being a martial artist that did not need to prove himself to every person that came along issuing a challenge or teasing him or picking on him or anything. So he did not always feel the need to react in the way that the person would be hoping that he would. But on this occasion, and I happened to be there on the set that day, and on this occasion, this kid was trying to show Bruce up and say he was a paper tiger.

Linda Lee Cadwell (Teacher, Martial Artist, Writer & Bruce Lee’s Wife):

And Bruce felt that it had reached the point where if he did nothing and said nothing, he would not be able to inspire the rest of the extras to cooperate with him in the fight scenes and do what they needed to do to complete the movie. So he felt he needed to take a leadership role and to show this young man that he was going to have to eat his words. But he did it in a nice and playful way and he called the guy down from where he was sitting up on a wall, throwing jibes at Bruce and he said, hey, come on down here.

Linda Lee Cadwell (Teacher, Martial Artist, Writer & Bruce Lee’s Wife):

So he brought him down and in the martial arts vernacular, I guess you would say he played with the young man. And he said they got in a stance and he said, okay, go ahead. Try and throw a kick. Anyway, they had a little back and forth there and by the time it was over, in about 30 seconds time, the young man was a true believer and Bruce accomplished this in good nature, did not hurt the young man but certainly showed him that he was a true martial artist and very skilled and knowledgeable. So everything went smoothly after that.
