Karate grandmaster Joe Lewis is a former World Karate and Kickboxing champion from the United States. He's sure his Karate in more powerful than Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do and tries to teach Bruce Lee a little lession. But it backfired as Bruce demonstrates in this video.
Here is the full story:

  • Joe and Bruce became great friends after this, Bruce offered Joe the role of Colt in Way Of The Dragon, but Joe refused to lose to Bruce in the movie, he wanted the fight at the end of the movie to be a draw, Bruce said no and they ended up arguing over that fact and the friendship was over. Bruce offered the role of Colt to Chuck instead, and the rest is history.

  • I do not know anyone who was not mesmerized by anything this man did. He was incredible to listen to, to watch. He was so photogenic. His whole persona was artistic- he did so much in such a short time. Nature takes people like this away from us almost to keep balance. Just too much kinetic energy. So incredible!!

  • That's an odd stance to keep, if you're looking to absorb the power of a blow to the body: feet lined up parallel, straight knees is the perfect way to get knocked down on your ass. I've seen this footage many times and I must say it hardly demonstrates anything. Try and do the same thing to someone in a proper stance, see if he you can make him fly like that.

  • Anyone notice Bruce's clever little trick with the chair? The first guy would have had same impact and slid just as far back if he fell on a chair too.....even notice bruce adjust the chair to let the guy know to relax and sit into the fall. Really makes me doubt a lot about his legend pulling off cheap tricks like this😂 Gob bless you all

  • Cheap trick. If you look closely, the man standing changes his standing position between the two men. With the first guy, he has a little wider stance making it easier to brace himself. With lee, he's standing straight up feet close together. My cat could knock a guy down in that stance.

  • Bruce Lee was a great showman, Joe Lewis was not. Notice how much time Bruce takes to set everything up, the chair right behind the guy, how close he is standing to him, Bruce hits him with spectacular effect. Conversely Joe is stood too far away has to raise his weight off his back foot to hit him and the chair is to the side.

  • in real life (i.e. boxing, MMA, muythai, kick boxing - the best contact sports EVER) there is no such thing as 1 inch punch... just doesn't work and never seen it happening in contact sports. The 1 inch punch i just witnessed is more like a 20 inch push, no damage and with no real application whatsoever because nobody gonna let u put your fist that close to their faces/bodies. This is just an exhibition for entertaining.

  • Lol firstly the guys who took the punches stood with their feet side by side which is the complete opposite way a fighter is taught to hold their stance . Secondly the karate guy who threw the punch threw a shit punch in mean there was no speed behind it ,it's as if he was a fucking novice . I have no doubt there was power in Bruce's punch as it speed behind it but for fucks sake at least test it on someone with a fighting stance.

You must get hit in the jaw and face and still keep fighting,just cause you have a 2 inch hit on a TRUE CHAMP LIKE JOE LEWIS ,yet all bow to Bruce,prove it to me ,BENNY DESERVERS THE CREDIT LOOK HIM UP

  • Props to Bruce for promoting Martial Arts World Wide, but Bruce was no master neither was joe. Joe’s karate reverse punch was terrible and Bruce’s 6 inch punch was a push punch and you can tell that joe was already leaning back away from the punch. I respect real martial artist who give years upon years ( decades) of serious training. Not some 18 year old kid who studied some Wing Chun for 2 years comes to the states and now is a master. I know many people will not agree with me on this matter and that is fine but I am entitled to my opinion. I enjoyed his films but that is it ...

The first dude walked away and held his chest. Joe Lewis gave Bruce eye contact before he walked away. Those men just experienced something that changed them and us forever. Long live Bruce Lee

  • Lmfao! So stupid... anyone can do this...have someone stand in a square square in front of a chair, hit them in the sternum and put a chair behind them to stumble into and you’ll get the same for joe Lewis, if you truly watch without bias, you’ll see first the major difference is the guys holding a pad which absorbs the power, but in spite of this, the guy is moved just as easily, and had he stumbled straight he would have hit the chair as well, but he veered off and that’s why he stayed on his feat...Joe’s punch was so much more powerful that he moved him easily even though the pad took all the impact

  • Joe Lewis: ''I never watched TV in the '60s, so before I met Bruce Lee, I'd not heard of him. I first met him at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. at the `67 U.S. National championships. I was defending my title, and he and Robert Culp from the `I Spy' show were there as guests. Bruce Lee approached me and introduced himself. That's how everything began. A few months later I was at Black Belt magazine's Culver City office to see them to complain about a misquote, and Bruce Lee was in their offices. when I went to my car he came running up behind me saying, Joe! Joe! Hi, I want to talk to you. And he spent about 15 minutes primarily pitching me on his system and trying to elicit my interest and I basically ignored him. I to this day, don't remember what he did or said to me.'' Lewis is the champion and is defending his title. Do you seriously believe he is going to take time out of his title defence to sit on the floor like a child and help a dude he only just met to do a demonstration that he knows nothing about? And wear a uniform that is not his karate style and wear a red belt instead of his black? and do this in front of his peers. Joe had a huge ego, he would never do such a thing.
