Beerdy – Bruce Lee Central:

Hey everybody, it’s Beerdy here. What’s going on guys? Okay, so we all know about the big fight between Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bruce Lee in the movie Game of Death. But before the movie happened, Bruce Lee sent the script to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and he read it and he liked it. But he had a few questions. So, he called Bruce Lee and he said, “Bruce, I like the script but there’s a problem here. In the script, you write that your character is gonna fly kick me in the head. Do you know how tall I am? That’s not possible.” And Bruce Lee was like, “Really? We’ll just see about that.”

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:

“I really looked up to Bruce. The one thing, among many, that I learned from him is the philosophy of Jeet Kune Do is being able to adapt. Having the fundamental skills available to you so that you can react to any situation…. (Lee) hoped that he could inspire someone, not to learn how to fight, but through the art of fighting, learn how to be a better person.”

Beerdy – Bruce Lee Central:

So, Bruce Lee calls Dan Inosanto. He says that, “Meet me up at the filming location and I’m gonna bring Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and we’re gonna have a little session there.” And he brings his home camera with him and Dan Inosanto is filming this. And this is the only footage in existence and it’s Bruce Lee showing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar that he can indeed perform a fly kick over 2 m. And there’s no trickery here. There’s no CGI.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:

β€œI first met Bruce when I was a student at UCLA looking to continue my martial arts studies, which I started in New York City. We quickly developed a friendship as well as a student-teacher relationship. He taught me the discipline and spirituality of martial arts, which was greatly responsible for me being able to play competitively in the NBA for 20 years with very few injuries.”

Beerdy – Bruce Lee Central:

This is simply Bruce Lee performing a fly kick at over 2 m high, okay. That’s pretty insane! And this is the only footage in existence. I’ve AI enhanced it as much as possible but this is really old footage and it’s not really good. But you can clearly, now after I enhanced it, you can clearly see Bruce Lee and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and you can see that amazing insane, insane fly kick. Here we go guys!

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:

“I was in public with Bruce several times when some random jerk would loudly challenge Bruce to a fight. He always politely declined and moved on… He felt no need to prove himself. He knew who he was and that the real fight wasn’t on the mat, it was on the screen in creating opportunities for Asians to be seen as more than grinning stereotypes.”
