This cool vintage shirts showcases one of the most legendary martial artists of all time, Bruce Lee. Lee was the son of a Cantonese opera star, and although he was born in San Francisco, he spent much of his childhood in China, eventually becoming a child actor in the Hong Kong film industry. Lee studied a variety of martial arts growing up and later moved to the United States to attend the University of Washington. After he moved to the States, Lee began teaching martial arts, and he eventually became the instructor of several notable celebrities such as Sharon Tate, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and his future Way of the Dragon co-star Chuck Norris.

Although Lee was making a living as a martial arts instructor he still had dreams of becoming an actor. He landed a few supporting roles in the US during the late 60s and early 70s, but he struggled to land larger roles in a Hollywood that was largely dominated by white actors. Lee returned to Hong Kong where he found more success and got his first starring role in The Big Boss . The commercial success of the film propelled him to stardom and he continued to appear in several more films, before he also became involved in writing, directing, and choreographing fight scenes.

One of Lee's most memorable films was Enter the Dragon, released in 1973 just a month after the actor's unfortunate death. Even after his passing, Lee remained a major pop culture figure whose influence on the film industry is undeniable. He brought Western attention to Hong Kong action cinema, and also helped to change the way Asians were portrayed in Western films.
