Rare video footage from the vault of Taky Kimura of Bruce Lee doing a demonstration at Jhoon Rhee’s National Karate Championships. He was 26 years of age at this time. It took place at the Washington D.C. Armory on May 6th, 1967.
You will also see footage of Mr. Rhee, Mr. Joe Lewis and Mr. Ed Parker (of American Kenpo fame) during an awards ceremony.
The footage was originally uploaded to Facebook by Taky Kimura.
The quality of the video footage is poor but it’s a historical clip.
