Seni Show steps up the pace.....
THIS YEAR marks the 35th anniversary of the death of legendary martial artist Bruce Lee.
But the memory of 'The Little Dragon' will burn brighter than ever at top combat sports exhibition Seni '08.
The world's leading martial arts expo will showcase a unique Bruce Lee Zone when the exhibition starts at London's Excel Arena on April 26.
It will feature the first Bruce Lee Museum as its centrepiece and personal appearances by some of the people closest to the great man - his widow Linda Lee Caldwell, his daughter Shannon and Richard Bustillo - a personal student of the martial arts great.
When ‘Enter the Dragon’ became a Hollywood blockbuster, the action film genre changed forever and that was largely down to the diminutive Chinese actor.
Despite being small in stature, Lee was big in attitude, and was able to spin, jump and kick his way through villains with lightning speed, balletic grace and an array of martial arts moves the like of which the West had never seen before.
Lee's ‘Gung-Fu’ style became a global phenomena and by the time ‘Enter the Dragon’ was released, he was already an iconic figure.
His untimely death at the age of 32 immortalised him in pop culture alongside such names as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, and his art of Jeet Kune Do is taught in dojo’s and gyms across the World.
The Bruce Lee Museum will be at the heart of Seni '08 and will feature 35 unique items and 35 unique photos celebrating the life and times of the legendary ‘Little Dragon’
Alongside the museum there will be an hour long Q&A where the panel will be discussing all things Bruce Lee from his Jeet Kune Do, to his personal training regime, philosophy and of course his film career.
