Happy Birthday to Brandon Bruce Lee!

Brandon and Bruce leeBrandon Bruce Lee, born on February 1st 1965, would have turned 48 years old today.

And it’s been nearly two decades since his tragic death during the filming of the movie “The Crow”.

He was the son of the martial arts legend Bruce Lee and his wife Linda Emery and was born in Oakland, California.

Shortly after his birth, the Lee family moved to Los Angeles and when Brandon was 6 years old (1971) they moved to Hong Kong.

He moved back to the United States when he was 9 years old following his father’s tragic death.

While he started training with his father at a young age, he didn’t start studying martial arts seriously until his teens, and sought out his father’s student and confidant, Dan Inosanto, for training in his father’s art of Jeet Kune Do along with the other arts taught at the Inosanto Academy.

Happy Birthday, Brandon!

May you rest in peace.

    Happy Birthday to Brandon Lee…It is so sad that, Bruce Lee’s death itself and Brandon Lees tragic death are probably through conspiracy and assassination. I would have suggested Brandon Lee, to avoid from working in film industry…Any way, May his soul and his father’s soul rest in peace. Amen

    Happy Birthday Brandon Lee! It’s so sad that we have to live without him and Bruce Lee because we wanted to see them in action today and kick butt like in the old days! The fact that they’re cursed is hard to believe because both of them are the greatest legends who have ever lived now and since they were born. Bruce’s death was shocking but it’s reasonable that he died that early so we can understand that, but Brandon’s death was tragic for the fact that he got shot on the set. If they were alive right now, we will never have to suffer living without them anymore. Still is something people can never forget but I still respect them. They’re awesome back then, and they’re still awesome right now. R.I.P Bruce lee and Brandon Lee: beloved son and father of martial arts.
