    Default Ed Parker VS. Bruce Lee

    Dear Kenpo brothers and sisters:

    Who do you think would have won in a match between Ed Parker in his prime and Bruce Lee before his death?

    Please give your thoughts on a "tag" match between the two as opposed to a fight to the finiish.

    I realize that this question is similiar to a Ali VS. Rocky Marciano question.
    Does anyone know of any computer simulations featuring these two fighters?

    I think that there was a discussion on this one already. Try a search for a previous thread.

    Bruce was a superior athlete, similar speed and power generated by both IMO.

    Would possibly be a matter of who made a mistake 1st.

    Huge size difference though.

    Unhappy Re: Ed Parker VS. Bruce Lee

    What? This is just a theoretical match?

    I was hoping this was a Special UFC Undead Card for Halloween!

    I'd have a responsibitity to bet on the little guy though. (Cuz us shrimps gotta stick together)

    I think someone voted for Mr. Parker in "Memories of Ed Parker" but I can't remember who it was. He said he thought Mr. Parker would win because they were about equal but Mr. Parker was bigger. That is a good book if you are interested in Kenpo. I reccomend it. Mr. Conatser may be the best source if you can't find a copy for sale somewhere online.

    Dear Cdhal:

    Thanks for the book reference! I have no idea on who the winner might be if such a contest had occured.

    I did hear from ny old instructor about a question that was posed by a reporter. The reporter asked Mr. Parker if he was challenged by the "Father" of TKD Jhoon Rhee how might he respond?

    Mr. Parker replied as I was told, "Being as I was the one challenged I could set the time and the place. The time is now. The place is a phone booth."

    Kick me now little brother! I would suspect that Mr. Parker MIGHT have made a similiar statement if asked about a challenge by Bruce Lee.

    Does anyone remember the computer simulation that was done with Ali and Marciano?

    Considering your theme music on myspace, I think you made the right choice, LOL.

    Forget that, I want to know who'd win in a fight between Santa and the Easter Bunny.

    I think the Easter bunny would win based on leg strength and Santa being out of shape.

    As for Bruce vs Ed, the world will never know.

    Perhaps we should ask the wise old owl?
