Shannon Lee, Daughter Of Martial Arts And Screen Legend Bruce Lee Will Be An Honored Guest At Nubreed Martial Art’s Academy’s 13th Anniversary Celebration And Fundraiser For St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital On October 2nd, 2010.
The late Bruce Lee has been immortalized by millions of martial arts fans, practitioners, photographic images, film and television screens around the world. He was a man driven to take his art and style to new levels. Captured in the essence of the limitless Lee Jun Fan Gung Fu, his own brand of Martial Arts (AKA: Jeet Kune Do or way of the intercepting fist) Mr. Lee was focused on changing the world in a positive way. Today, his daughter Shannon, carries on this vision with the help of other surviving Lee family members to advance "Bruce Lee’s original intent and practice [so it] will not be distorted or misinterpreted and thereby, will not fade away," the mission of both the Bruce Lee Foundation and LeeWay Media Group.
With this vision in mind, Shannon Lee will attend a special 13th Anniversary celebration of Nubreed Martial Arts Academy in Whitestone, NY on Saturday October 2nd, 2010 from 9:30AM to 1:30PM. Ms. Lee will be available for interviews, and photo opportunities at this event.
With a suggested donation of $25 all proceeds from the event will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its cancer research facilities.
Luigi Orlando Cuellar and Alexander Chan, Owner/Operators of Nubreed Martial Arts Academy both agree that, “Bruce Lee’s legacy is an amazing one. He broke down walls and made it possible for so many of us to learn from one another and to appreciate life and human potential. Having Shannon Lee here to contribute to this event and helping to raise funds for St. Jude is just a small part of that great legacy of reaching out, making breakthroughs and making a difference.”
