Cause of Death[edit]

A couple factors which may have contributed to Bruce Lee's death.

1. "Removing the venom" from extremely poisonous snakes does not necessarily mean that it was done thoroughly enough and that all the venom was removed or that the "venom sacks" didn't heal back.

2. One common symptom of poisonous snake bites is brain swelling. Could have been exacerbated by the blows to the head during training.

3. Like cannabis, if a poison settles into the body fat, it can be released again at a later date, weeks or months later when a person is hungry or fasting and the body processes fat cells. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.10.216.88 (talk) 09:05, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

4. Chuck Norris is better than Bruce Lee. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.156.137.205 (talk) 14:14, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Accuracy issue in "Long Beach International Karate Championships"[edit]

[1]

Aircorn please explain why this is undue and unreliable? I can't see a reason for undue if the source is reliable (if the source is correct then the rest of the section is factually inaccurate and should be deleted). I'd like to see an explanation on why the source is unreliable. Banedon (talk) 06:23, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

  • pls see Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources .... if reliable published sources do not include the information that you have found only at some random website, then that information is—by definition—not important enough to include.--Moxy (talk) 11:03, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
    The source is less the website than the video given in the website. In that video, someone who is clearly Vic Moore talks about the incident and makes his claims. The video is recent (dated 2013), so there is reason why Uyehara did not mention it. In any case, if the source is unreliable, then the article Vic Moore is in trouble because the same source is cited there, and that article comes under WP:BLP.

The first sentence lists him as a "philosopher"...[edit]

Come on now. (Also the reference link is broken) 69.201.166.50 (talk) 08:52, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

"Chinatown"[edit]

Is there a reason why "Chinatown" is listed as his place of birth? Shouldn't it be removed? "San Francisco, California" should be sufficient. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Satanstorm (talkcontribs) 16:10, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 July 2016[edit]

"Bruce also instructed several World Karate Champions including Chuck Norris, Joe Lewis, and Mike Stone. Between the three of them, during their training with Bruce, they won every karate championship in the United States.[92]", Bruce Lee Wikipedia page.

The above statement is wrong. Both Chuck Norris and Joe Lewis were champions before they met Bruce. Chuck was a champion before he met Bruce in 1972. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R3G81YnV38 The above video is a direct interview of Joe Lewis. He stated clearly that Bruce had no credentials and only came to workout with him[Joe] and Chuck to hype up his profile so that he can brag and claim later that he trained with champions. This is directly in contrast to the claim on the above statement in Bruce Lee's Wikipedia page. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mcl81ldNODc On the video above, Chuck said that he was a professional fighter but Bruce was not. If anyone was a student, then it's got to be Bruce because he was only training and not a practical fighter. Besides, who studies 2 years of wing chun and then teaches real professional fighting champions how to fight? That is not real history but created make believe history. It is better not to mention it at all or to say that they trained together at one point. The facts are not reflecting the statements above. Dmiller9141 (talk) 22:54, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
