6-year-old Ryusei Imai went viral on the Internet last year with his spot-on mimicking of Bruce Lee’s “Game of Death” nunchaku scene.
The tiny fan of Bruce Lee went on to perform on television shows to showcase his unique capabilities at his young age.
Now, at 6-years-old, the little Bruce Lee impersonator is still going strong with his unbelievable workouts and routines. After doing some crazy striking, check out little Ryusei pull off the finger pushups like Lee was famous for doing.
In 2013, Lee was Named Number 2 on the Men’s Health magazine list of Fittest Men of All Time and also named one of the Fifty Greatest Athletes of All Time by Sports Illustrated.
From Lee’s website:
“After The Green Hornet series was canceled, Bruce encountered resistance while working in Hollywood and so headed to Hong Kong to pursue a film career. In Hong Kong he made 3 films, which consecutively broke all box office records and showcased martial arts in an entirely new way. Hollywood took notice and soon Bruce was making the first Hollywood / Hong Kong coproduction with a film called Enter the Dragon. Unfortunately, Bruce Lee died in 1973 before this film was released. This film catapulted him to international fame. Today Bruce Lee’s legacy of self expression, equality, and pioneering innovation continues to inspire people all around the world.”
“On July 20, 1973, Bruce had a minor headache. He was offered a prescription painkiller called Equagesic. After taking the pill, he went to lie down and lapsed into a coma. He was unable to be revived. Extensive forensic pathology was done to determine the cause of his death, which was not immediately apparent. A nine-day coroner’s inquest was held with testimony given by renowned pathologists flown in from around the world. The determination was that Bruce had a hypersensitive reaction to an ingredient in the pain medication that caused a swelling of the fluid on the brain, resulting in a coma and death.”
