You may know Jason Scott Lee as a Hollywood actor, but he’s also been a student of Bruce Lee’s martial arts system Jeet Kune Do for some 20 years. Since portraying the master in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Jason Scott Lee (no relation) has immersed himself in what’s been referred to as “the art of fighting without fighting,” and in this program, which beautifully illustrates both the physicality and spirituality of the martial arts, we follow him as he takes part in an intense boot camp at the institution that invented Kung Fu – Shaolin Temple.
