Allen Joe and Bruce Lee – A Life-Defining Friendship
If you want to enjoy a great read about Allen Joe – the man who profoundly influenced Bruce Lee’s physical development and refined his expression of impact-posing – this fantastic book by Svetlana Kim and Dmitri Bobkov really delivers!
Written in a warm, articulate and insightful style and packed with content drawn from personal interviews with Allen and Annie Joe, this compelling volume highlights an era in Bruce Lee’s developmental history, which is often sadly overlooked by the mainstream media.
Allen and Bruce enjoyed a rich and mutually transformative friendship from their first meeting in the 1959, until Bruce’s untimely passing on July 20th, 1973. Read about their triumphs and tribulations during a period in U.S. history, when racial prejudice against those of Chinese and Japanese heritage was a national obsession. Both men elected to rise above the hatred and pursued a path of excellence, whilst adhering to the principles of tolerance, acceptance and racial agnosticism- a lesson which is still as relevant and topical today, as it was when this great friendship was formed…
