While Bruce Lee was an exceptional martial artist, the one thing that made him special was not that he could kick you a distance of 15 feet, it was not that he could do push ups with just two fingers, it was not that he could generate that much power from so close, it was not his speed, in fact,…

Martial Arts Fun Fact
A Martial Artist’s bones are denser than the average human’s. If you were to x-ray a martial artist’s arm their bones will appear opaque and bright white, this means that the bones are dense. If you were to x-ray an average person’s arm it will appear translucent like the image above. There are two major causes for the increased density. The first is repeated impacts, like blocking and striking. This causes micro fractures that allow the bones to heal stronger. The second cause is the constant flexing and pulling of the muscles attached to the bones. When the strain of flexing muscles is applied to the bones, the bones react by increasing their density in order to avoid breaking

"He [Downey] knows that I’ll go home and write something offensive about him and that he’ll want to punch me. And I know that I have to live with his face in my mind for a month or two, or more like the rest of my life, and so of course I’ll want to punch him.

So I try… The problem with trying to punch someone in the face who’s been studying kung fu for five years—someone who has a lot of free time and energy, and has a lot of frustration built up, someone who for a long time lived in a vulnerable way and destroyed himself and was powerless to control the world and was sent away to sad, scary prisons to get beat up by his jailmates, someone who—when he finally got out—couldn’t keep himself out of court or rehab or jail again, who lost his first marriage, lost custody of his kid for a time, lost the right to vote, lost his career… The problem here is when he got healthy, what did he want? He wanted control, and of course he wanted to find a way to protect himself.

So when I try to punch him, he does what he’s learned to do. I don’t actually even remember getting punched in the face. It’s Downey who notices. “Hey, you’re bleeding,” he says. He asks if I want ice. “It’s not a workout until somebody’s bleeding,” Oram says, smiling.

And then Downey looks at my wound again. “Feels good,” he says. “Doesn’t it?”
