The letter by Chuck, I wander when it was written.
I know Bruce visited him in Los Angeles in June 73 when he had his tests done.
They both had dinner.
They're was no malice I don't think.
I seen photos of Chuck at the Seattle service and he went to the San Francisco Memorial with Steve
and Jimmy.
I think Bruce could be a bit thin skinned at times and took things personal.
Regards
Tony

It was written in 1972 "Bruce, I hope 1973 is a great year for you." Sadly Not!

I saw Chuck Norris in person in about 1979 at a tournament. He did a demo with his brother Aaron. He looked much  better there than in any of the on-screen appearances I've seen of him. Aaron seemed to be similarly skilled.

A question for Matthew Polly,

Hi MR Polly I real want to buy the book but then I saw something about the book:

Hardcover are 656 pages and softcover are 672 pages...can you explain that?

Regards,
Leon

Hi Leon,
1) The softcover shouldn't be available yet. Softcovers usually come out a year after the hardcover. 2) To answer your implied question: it will be exactly the same material in both version. There won't be any changes. 3) Softcovers are usually a bit smaller in size (dimensions) than hardcovers, so as a result they tend to be a few pages longer. 4) It'll probably be about US$10 cheaper than the hardcover, so if you are willing to wait a year it'll save you some money. 5) Authors generally get paid about US$3 for every hardcover sold and $1.25 for every softcover. So you spot me US1.75 and get the softcover if you'd like :)

Chuck turned down Enter the Dragon, so I'm not certain he was under a two-picture contract with Golden Harvest/Concord. But it is entirely possible. I've never understood why he did Yellow Faced Tigers/Slaughter in San Francisco. I thought it was to advance his movie career, but perhaps he was contractually obligated.

Bruce liked Norris the most of all the Karate Champions and highly respected his talent. Both men had big egos and thin skin. Their disagreement reflected in this letter is whether Lee should be considered Norris's teacher or not. Lee bragged to people that he had the 3 top karate champs as his students. They objected, believing their training sessions at Lee's home were not classes and Lee was not their teacher. It was a question of status and pride.

Another question for the Author Matt Polly. I understand that you'll be attending a conference in Wales (mid-week early July 2018), will you be attending (in uniform or otherwise) any other events in the UK? Any scheduled book signings in London?

That's a great question. As of now, I don't have plans for a book signing in London. Hopefully I will do a few interviews. It depends on what my publicist can get me.

By any chance do you plan on doing interviews on a specific movie from Bruce's career, or a specific topic about his life?
