Perhaps his hard work made him become obsessed with this martial art to the point of fanaticism, he finally created for himself the ability to refine, refine and mature to become a philosopher, a master..and an innovator of martial arts.

After deeply studying the styles and theories of different martial arts, Bruce developed a personal martial arts concept. This concept was later named as Trieu Quyen Dao – the method of interception with a punch.
