This is to do with the manipulation of appearances, the power of suggestion, or indeed seduction, or what Baudrillard called the lure Baudrillard 1990; Chow 1995. Some of us will also know or have known a supposed martial arts master who taught or teaches many classes and even many styles but who never spars even privately with their own students. All such characters inhabit realms of uncertainty, unverifiability or unverified-ness.
All conjure with fear and desire as deterrence and attraction. Martial refers to military warfare, and all such matters are murderous, monstrous, machinic and morbid. This is so much so that when it comes to martial arts as we think of them today, surely it has to be said that the artistry is the thing.
The parameters of an art of fighting without fighting could easily range from tricking a bully off the boat to any kind of deception, pose, distraction, simulation, manipulation and pretence. Yet, Bruce Lee — as he himself, his family, friends, estate, aficionados and heirs, all keep claiming — would continually strive to honestly express his real and true philosophies and ideas in his film and TV roles. Clearly, however, like the Bible, Bruce Lee is often perhaps necessarily read selectively, and without a rationale for that selectivity.
Why do we select the bits that we do? This is because the idea of the one, the totally knowable and accessible totality, is a fiction. This is why I prefer instead to regard the inevitability of selectivity and incompleteness as a kind of necessary and inevitable principle. We have to accept that we only ever pick out and pick up bits and pieces of culture or of a text or practice, even if we think we have the whole thing. There will always be different senses of the whole, dependent on which bits and pieces are picked out and picked up in which kinds of ways for what kinds of reasons.
We combine different bits and pieces paratactically in different configurations. And what we pick up or pick out inevitably both reveals and conceals.
So, what do I say? I want to say ingenious — that Bruce Lee was an ingenious martial artist. I think that this is all the more so given that he is gone and everything remains uncertain, yet his shadow or wake still stretches or flows far and wide and influentially. As if in frustration comes the question: ok then, who would have won in a fight, Bruce Lee or Muhammad Ali? Crucially, in this theoretical physics, we come to the fact that Ali was a world champion heavyweight boxer with an enduring international career while Lee was as light as a feather and had not fought competitively since one tournament in high- school.
Consequently, I want to say that it is obvious who would have won. However, history also records the occasion when Ali the boxer fought Inoki the wrestler. It was a flop reputedly because of a misunderstanding of the nature of the event Miracle 2017. When the penny dropped that everyone else believed that this was meant to be a real contest, all kinds of last minute rule changes were brought in, ostensibly to ensure that the most valuable commodity Ali was protected from possible damage.
The rules imposed on the fight resulted in the embarrassing spectacle of Inoki having to try to throw kicks while lying on his back, as this was all that the rules really allowed in terms of kicks Miracle 2017. This is the same as to say that even Ali — the world class competitive boxer — would and did, for one reason or another, shy away from truly open contest, outside of the rules and realm of the boxing ring.
If reality is really what concerns us, then we really must remain aware that there are considerably more complex factors to consider than decontextualized and effectively abstract matters of physical size, speed, reach, style and skill Collins 2009.
Miller 2008 , plus myriad other considerations, must all be weighed and measured in what remains our irreducibly fantasy fighting league.
To disagree with this is actually to move ever further from the real world that is nonetheless being fantasized and fetishized. At the very least, given the strength of what we might call the forces of or impulses to concealment — forces relating to preserving or enhancing commercial, physical, pedagogical and other performative capital — asking who would have won seems a 21 little like asking which pole of a magnet would have won if we had pushed two equal yet opposite poles together when each of the poles operated in different realms and had careers and reputations to maintain.
Certainly, the sense of always holding something back, of there always apparently being more, in reserve, has always been appealing to me. But is it why I am into Bruce Lee: Because he was always and remains to some crucial degree unknown, and now — because he died so young — unknowable?
I have cut it for two reasons: first, because, to skip the working out, the short answer is basically: yes, I think so, at least a bit. I actually dispute the thesis that his untimely death somehow caused his appeal. It certainly created an openness that allowed for evermore imaginary identity work. But it does not in any way explain his attractiveness.
Nonetheless, his death is supposed to be the unsettled matter, of course Bleecker 1999. It is supposed to involve mystery or conspiracy, even though there are really only a couple of credible possibilities and both boil down to the same thing: Bruce Lee had some kind of allergic reaction to something.
Miller 2000; Preston 2007.
Put bluntly: it is now well established that one best not give aspirin to young athletes and martial artists during times of viral illness, or it could cause all kinds of problems, including cerebral oedema.
This was not known in 1973. Given the existence of several equally plausible and medically viable theories, I personally can settle for this level of uncertainty.
Any of them are acceptable to me because I believe all are equally plausible. Obviously, they are also equally startling — because, in any case, Bruce Lee died from a rare allergic reaction to one or another relatively mundane drug, or from heat.
But, on this issue, again, things bifurcate and double, into one thing and its opposite. It's such a great and powerful little book that I will probably end up downloading another copy for myself, along with additional copies for friends this Christmas.
