Quick Quote

This excerpt comes from Zen in the Martial Arts by Joe Hyams (ISBN 0553225103).

“I’m going to tell you something very few people know. I became a martial artist in spite of my limitations. You probably are not aware of it, but my right leg is almost one inch shorter than my left… and I wear contact lenses. Since childhood I have been near-sighted, which meant that when I wasn’t wearing glasses I had difficulty seeing an opponent when he wasn’t close up. Originally I studied wing chun because it is an ideal technique for close-in fighting… Instead of trying to do everything well, do those things perfectly of which you are capable.”

-Bruce Lee
