When Bruce Lee is preparing to fight the martial artist chosen to stop him from teaching the "Guai Lo", their warmup is obviously derived from The Way of the Dragon (1972): Lee is exercising his flexibility, while his opponent, like Chuck Norris, is instead practicing a series of "rehearsed routines."

[Bruce Lee drops the message the Elders sent him, interrupting their game]
Bruce, I know that you like to be called Bruce. You have been charged with violating the martial arts code. We've had several complaints from Wu Zuolin and Wong Jack Man and many others. You've been teaching the gwai lo, this must stop.
I'll teach whoever wants to learn.
Bruce, we do things differently here. One of the things we do not do is teach our secrets to white, blacks. They are the enemy.

If you're looking for a good film about Bruce Lee, this is not it. Sorry, but despite Jason Scott Lee and Lauren Holly giving very good performances, this film is about as historically accurate as a tabloid story on Madonna's intact virginity.
What has been described as the director's 'artistic license' is in plain English another Hollywood huckster exploiting Bruce by manufacturing numerous inaccuracies to sell a film and line his pockets. Bruce would be outraged at this blatant deception! You should be too.
Don't reward money grubbers for ripping off Bruce Lee's legacy. If you want to know about the real Bruce, see the films Enter The Dragon, Return of the Dragon, and The Chinese Connection (aka Fists of Fury). Also read his books such as the Tao of Jeet Kune Do, the Tao of Gung Fu, and the series entitled Bruce Lee's Fighting Method by Bruce and M. Uyehara.
