  1. He taught martial arts for living before he ever considering acting.


    Senseis are considered professional martial artists.  I think that's pretty cut and dry.


    Last time I checked, not many actors develop their own style of martial arts, such as Bruce Lee did with Jeet Kun Do.


    I am afirad you are wrong again :-


    Lee has always aimed to be an actor since childhood, in fact, he was a child actor in Hong Kong.


    He was an actor before he was a ung Fu teacher, surely he was not teaching, or even giving out anyone pointers in Kung Fu as a child actor :(


    Lee was an acton actor and the first in his own class, very much depended on his obsession in his Kung Fu training as well as an highly displined acting background. As we all know he opened up the path for many other acton actors. So it is understanable that you could not have oftern find many in your checks. :)


    Before that he worked in other what we considered today as money jobs, he spent a lot of time fighting others in the company of his elder fellow kung fu student, they say Lee actually leant more Kung Fu form this elder fellow student than Master yip Mon himself, but I guess we could not find out the truth about it. He only started his own school of teaching after he left Hong Kong in the US, so I am afraid you are wrong in that one too :)


    Additionally, the film, "Game of Death", as you know, most of "bruch lee' in the film was not played by him (as he was dead in the middle fo the project), but the fight with the tall black sportsman you metioned, is indeed highly planed. It was NOT "real" as you put in one of your old post.


    There were even drawings from Lee himself about the going of the fight and how the camera should work.


    Have a good weekend everyone!

  2. Watch Bruce Lee in Game of Death and say that again.  Supposedly his fight with Kareem (one of Lee's students) was real and unchoreagraphed in that movie.  Kareem is twice Bruce's height, has incredible range, more weight and more strength.


    That statment is un-true :wacko:, expect that "Kareem" was indeed so much taller than Lee.



    I have no doubt that Bruce Lee was an expert martial artist, but remember that he was an actor, whereas Tyson was a professional fighter. In a boxing match i have no doubt that Tyson (in his prime) would beat Lee. However in a mixed martial arts match i would give the win to lee because he knew varying styles of combat with a mixture of striking and grappling moves.

    No no,you wrong.Before Bruce Lee be an actor,he is a best fighter and more professional than other,for example he make his muscle more quality not big.

    In 1964,Bruce Lee win the Karate of America on 24 years old,why this small thin Chinese man can win?Bruce Lee show his martial art is highly,quickly,powerful,nicety than anybody.

    You just watch the movie and you don't know the truce.


    I dont know how to define rather Bruce Lee was a profressional fighter. His father was a trained chinese opera actor, and in this profressional, you will be trained in Kung Fu at a young age, therefore, Lee was always aimed to be an actor, not a fighter.


    The closest Lee, has been a "profressional" fighter could be when, he involved with a lot of "roof fights", meaning that peole would duel with each other on the roof tops of Hong Kong, for whatever their reasons, sometimes its for money, sometimes just pride or gang related. But Lee did not depend his income from these roof fights, so its hard to say that Lee was a profressional fighter rather than an actor.


    He also did a lot of duels, sometimes un-official, therefore he carried an image of a thug before he became an international super star.




    Beside the comments on how great Bruce Lee was, there is also somthing I like to metion is that performance in front of the camera such as a movie, does not always represent the true combat ability of the fighting actor. While Lee's ability is highly valued, there has been other people he has challenged and has beaten him in his time. For example, during a martial art show in Wei Chei, he was "beaten" at the back stage by an older artist, although beaten is harder to define in the traditional chinesse kung Fu duel, as the respectable would "fight" but would not land the wining blow as it is the good manner to have such un spoken agreement as respect. On top of that, he was already famous in Hong Kong, and he image would be protected, such news would not develop too far.


    Beside, although Tyson is large, it does not mean he is slow, he can punch in a very good speed, with his mass, he is a fearsome foe for anyone without a gun (or somthing good) :lol:.

  3. Some of the lads I have spoken with are involved in martial arts, by that, I mean they have actual combat experienced.


    One of the staments they came up with is that, "You cant compare the two of different weights (range), and if they were to fight together, usually the heavier would win".


    (And I dont think they mean a far bastard)


    Although I have been interested in martial arts in the pass, I actaully have no combat experience (real ones), so after the talk, from wishing Bruce Lee the winner, I ended up beliving Tyson would actually win if the fight really does kick off.


    But as they have said as well, its all depends and the answer would remined un known.

  4. Thanks for the head up.


    I am currently training the dogs pretty hard, its actaully rather difficult by not knowing Japanese.


    However, I like to share some of the tricks I have taught my doggies and the command I am currently using, and what they do.


    My aim here is to TRY not to have two or more command sound a like, so my pets do not get confused.


    Sit: Sit (but I have to start saying the S for a while in order to increase its effective rate, so I say, " Sssssssit".

    Down: Down

    Jump: Jump

    Hand: Pawpaw (Paw Paw)

    Tracing tail: Spin

    Lay down on its left: Lay Down

    Roll up on its left: Tummy

    Roll up on its right: Roll left

    Roll up on its right: Roll up

    Shake its butt: Wiggle

    Shake its buff the other way around facing me: Shakeit (shake it)


    Also, they must have must have heard me screaming and shouting bad words any other time, I hope they dont pick them up :rolleyes:


    Also, something worth metioning is that, I taught both of my dogs using the same vioce commands, but one would find certain command confusing (blue ?) while the other would learnt it perfectly and never mistaken.


    Having read somt of the FAQ, think I will try to delete all the mirror actions, because more command meaning that they might get confused, and taken up the limited memory space of the good virtual pets.

  5. Impressive info on the game o:)


    About the vioce command, I dont mind it, but I dislike it as it oftern mistake the command I am given.


    I mean, I taught my dog "roll right" and "roll left", it just can not ID the difference.


    Also, even the most basic command of "sit" it can not rigister quite often.


    I wonder if the game is designed to listern to Japanese command rather than English as well.


    If you have trained your dog with good detailed vioce command, would you mind giving me a bit of advice here?


    I mean, what are your vioce commands per actions?

  6. My sister in law just sent a Nentendo DS together with the pet game, Nintendog (Shiba verson).


    I can not read Japanese, but I was able to guess what was going on, I got to say that this game is highly detailed, very well done!


    It will respond to your vioce command, and you can teach it new ones every few days, so you can get quite personal with this virtual pet.


    When there is a UK/US verson out here in the UK, I might get another one with different types of dogs.


    Anyone planing getting the game?

  7. Below is a long complain letter to a British ISP who has placed me in a rather strange position and I wounder if anyone has a simular experience, enjoy.






    14th June 2005.


    Dear Bulldog,


    I am writing a complaint letter regarding my experience with Bulldog since October 2004.


    For the last few weeks I have been exchanging emails and communications with the Bulldog Customer Service and the finance Department. Unfortunately, I found that all the replies do not satisfy the chain of problems I am currently having with Bulldog, and I feel that my case would require a higher degree of attention from you in order to achieve a clear understanding.


    My complaint letter is regarding to my experience and problems with two different accounts with Bulldog, each have their own problems and one is not connected to the other. Most of these problems are based on the lack of attention and communication from Bulldog. Therefore I would greatly appreciate if the customer service department would try to understand the whole of my letter in detail rather than following the tradition of making up your own assumptions and providing unsatisfying or even irrelevant answers and explanations.


    Regarding to Account: BDOL******.


    I was overcharged on my billing from your finance department, and I must say that I am shocked at how your company would function in such a way that would break contract with your customer.


    When I called Bulldog to apply for an account for the first time in October, your sale team told me once my connection is established I can "try" your October package for three months for free. This October package include the phone line rental and the 4mb broadband connection monthly rental in a total sum of

  8. Long ago I asked sombody to produce a web site for me, we booked and paid for a year time for the the web address/domain name, all was fine.


    Now that its a few months after the year since I have first launched the web site, and the domain name time has expired.


    I am asking another web desinger to make the web site, but when we looked up on the same domain name, domainname.co.uk said that its already taken and still belong to the last web desinger, wtf?


    My current web desinger said that we will need the old web desinger to tranfer it away or somthing, does anyone know whats going on and whats need to be done?


    Thanks a lot.

  9. Even if you are a weaponmaster you can spam force waves like a jedi master.


    The level you reach at the end of the game can make even an 8 WIS character get the FP of a powerful consular.


    The force power were not just so much about how much FP you have, but due to the higher wis and cha that a Consular would have typically, the force power DC is higher and therefore the enemy would find it harder to resist (save).
