“The Bruce Lee show was such an honor to perform in front of the legends daughter Shannon Lee.  At this event Shannon was first exposed to the love and respect of her father’s legacy in the break dancing world” said Salvador Live.  “The Bruce Lee paint show inspired me to take on the different personas Lee played on movies like Kato and also reveal the legendary yellow suit, that was first wore by Bruce Lee way before kill bill! I also had the opportunity to speak on the impact her father left and how the flow of movement inspired B-boys to explore further.
And that’s because the origins of the dance come from kung Fu. Overall it was an honor and one of my first big important events.”

He was introduced to the film industry by his father and appeared in several films as a child actor. Lee moved to the United States at the age of 18 to receive his higher education at the University of Washington in Seattle, and it was during this time that he began teaching martial arts. His Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, sparking a surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West in the 1970’s.
