A Bruce Lee martial arts masterclass

Martial artist and actor Bruce Lee starred in only five feature films as an adult, and only three of them were released before his early death in Hong Kong at the age of 32.

But fascination with his life, philosophy and legacy remains, crossing the barriers of age and nationality.

Starting on Saturday, Hong Kong will mark the 40th anniversary of Lee's death by opening a five-year exhibition at the Heritage Museum celebrating the achievements of the city's biggest star.

Lee invented Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do - a martial art form and life philosophy which roughly translates as the way of the intercepting fist.

Juliana Liu went to a Hong Kong gym to meet some practitioners which describe themselves as Bruce Lee fanatics.
