An Interview with Sammo Hung

An opportunity to converse with the legendary actor and martial artist, Sammo Hung, was presented.

At the interview, Sammo remembered his first encounter with Bruce. The latter was simply touring Hong Kong, when he dropped by the set Sammo was shooting on. After being formally introduced, the conversation quickly rose to Bruce's speed, and Sammo wondered if it was true or just a special effect due to the lack of social media back then. He had never seen Bruce Lee before.

Sammo put it right to Bruce and questioned if the rumors were true about his velocity. Without a moment of pause, Bruce saw fit to prove it and promptly showed Sammo. In Sammo's description, he was only halfway through his kick and Bruce's foot was already smashing against his face. At the conclusion of the story, Sammo affirmed the truth of Bruce's speed.

An Interview with Jackie Chan

In a recent interview, Jackie Chan opened up about his life, career, and his thoughts on the entertainment industry. The renowned actor and martial artist discussed his early beginnings and how he developed his style of action comedy.

Chan also shared his views on the changing face of the business and how he believes it's important to stay true to yourself. The star concluded by talking about his future projects and how he hopes to continue to entertain audiences around the world.

Jackie recounted the time he initially had the opportunity to interact with Bruce Lee. It happened on the set of Fist of Fury when Jackie was invited to perform a challenging stunt that required him to leap through a window. Being an ideal candidate for the task due to his physique being similar to that of a Japanese man, he accepted the invitation. Consequently, he and Bruce Lee were working side-by-side.

Jackie is more passionate about his recollections of Bruce's speed than Summo. He expressed that Bruce moved so quickly that if you turned your head away for a moment, you would have missed his kicks.

It's hard to believe that Bruce wasn't talented in this area, after Jackie's testimony. Therefore, it is safe to assume that Bruce had some impressive speed.
