"Taky Kimura - The Heart of The Dragon"

Taky Kimura was Bruce Lee’s best friend and senior most student, meeting Bruce when he was just a new arrival to Seattle, WA. This short film tells the story of a Japanese-American who survived the incarceration camps of World War II, and went on to meet and train with the greatest martial arts legend of all time. Now 96 years old, Taky has passed down Bruce’s original teachings and the tradition of Jeet Kune Do to his son, Andy Kimura, who continues the legacy where it all started; in Seattle’s Chinatown/International District.
