Through a number of educational and social initiatives, the Bruce Lee Foundation encourages people to strive for honest self-expression in alignment with their mind, body, and spirit. Consistent with Bruce Lee’s innate belief, we know that we can impact the world by giving people permission to follow their dreams, in harmony with their community. What started as a grassroots movement to honor Bruce Lee’s philosophies and dedication to his craft and his life, is becoming a thriving 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that motivates individuals around the world to become the best version of themselves.
