BIRTH OF THE DRAGON
In San Francisco in the 1960’s, a legendary fight took place
between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man.
It occurred in front of a small number of witnesses,
no two of whom could agree on what actually happened.
But it changed the history of martial arts.
This story is inspired by that fight.
