Bruce Lee might be gone, but he certainly isn’t forgotten.
The legendary martial arts star and Hollywood actor is having a bit of a pop-culture moment, even though he passed away in 1973.
A new movie, Little Dragon, following Lee’s early years in 1950s Hong Kong and directed by award-winning filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, is gearing up for production. And on the small screen, Fast and the Furious and Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin is producing the crime-drama Warrior, which is based on an original concept from Lee himself. The show takes place in the second half of the 19th century, during the Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Lee fans will have plenty to look out for with those two projects coming, but in the meantime they can check out something very cool: Ultra-rare footage of Lee in a mixed martial arts-style competition taking on Ted Wong, who studied under Lee as one of his martial arts pupils.
The video is from the 1967 Longbeach International Karate Championships:

Lee remains a major part of the conversation when it comes to martial arts, and with these new projects—and the historic video—coming out, he should continue to get the attention he deserves as a fighting legend.
