VIDEO: The legend of Bruce Lee returns in the body of a 6 year-old Japanese boy
It's been almost forty three years since Bruce Lee passed away, but he still remains one of the most famous people on the planet. His legend lives on not only in stories and in his iconic films but also in the body of an adorable little boy who loves him so much that he can't help but be him! Watch the video of the boy and his dragon-like moves, and you may be convinced that he actually IS Bruce Lee — reincarnated as a six year-old Japanese boy!
I loved Bruce Lee as a kid, and still do, but my adoration for him is nothing compared to what Ryuji Imai feels for him. Ryuji is a six year-old boy who goes by the name Ryusei, and he happens to be a miniature Bruce Lee clone. With his loving father's support and hours of training and mimicking, Ryusei has turned into quite the martial artist himself, 100% inspired by his idol, Bruce Lee. Having watched films like The Way of the Dragon, Enter the Dragon, and Game of Death over and over again since he was a toddler, Ryusei is now able to re-enact all the fight scenes and expressions, in perfect timing, without even looking at the screen! Needless to say, Ryusuei has become somewhat of an international sensation since making his debut on YouTube, having appeared on NBC's Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey and even appearing on a Korean television show just two months ago. He's only six, but he's already on his way to becoming a star!
If Bruce Lee was alive today, and he'd be seventy five years old if he was, he'd definitely get a kick out of Ryusei, the little Japanese boy who's convinced he's the second coming of the Dragon!
