Speaking of Foshan Kung-Fu, we have to mention Bruce Lee. He learnt martial arts movements from Ip Man, and he was native to Foshan Shunde. He was also the first global promoter of Chinese Kung-Fu and the first Chinese protagonist in Hollywood.
The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, The Way of the Dragon, Enter the Dragon...Bruce Lee can complete the difficult martial arts movements without special effect assistance. In his 32 legendary years, he starred in films that broke box office records in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. He put Kung-Fu on the screen of the world, which made him a hero and idol in the 20th century.
As the root of Bruce Lee’s Kung-Fu, Foshan has numerous martial arts schools and profound martial arts culture. In 2004, Foshan was awarded the title of “City of Martial Arts”, which is the only city in the country to win the title.
