Although Ying-Chieh Han was the official fight coordinator, Bruce Lee took control of his own fight scenes almost immediately. When there was some dispute, he would disrupt filming by some little strategy such as 'losing' one of his contact lenses while filming in the ice-cutting factory where there were thousands of tiny ice chips on the floor.

When Chao-an and "The Boss" face off, when "The Boss" pulls out his knives for attack, he slashes Chao-an once across the stomach, and once across the back. However, when slashing at his back, a sound effect implies that he misses, when a scar can be seen on his back seconds later. See more »
Uncle, is this it?

Throughout this film you see a constrained Bruce Lee. Lo Wei is deliberately holding him back in order to introduce him to audiences and to save the best of his fighting for the second film. What we see here is a humane Bruce Lee who has feelings, a sense of humour, enjoys sex and is in control of his temper. He strikes up a good friendship with Shu Sheng who life is eventually claimed by the antagonists. When Bruce witnesses the mistreatment of his family in the workplace, he still holds back. Until...they break his necklace. At that moment, he explodes into action with centrifugal force, picking off each opponent with pin-point accurate kicks. It is a work of art that is akin to 'Samson and Delilah'.
