Default Documented proof of Bruce Lee fighting in tournaments ?

Has there been any documented proof of Bruce Lee fighting in real tournaments ? Does anyone know ?

I came across a guy the other day who called Bruce Lee an "average" fighter and I disagreed.

Bruce Lee is an actor not a fighter, he was just training in martial arts.

I know. Thats why I asked the question if there is proof that he actually fought in tournaments. I guess not. There is no evidence that he fought using "Jeet Kun Doe". It's all theory.

Lee claimed that, after arriving in San Francisco, his theories about martial arts and his teaching of "secret" Chinese martial arts to non-Asian students gave him enemies in the martial arts community. A contest was scheduled between him and Wong Jack Man, a practitioner of Northern Shaolin Kung fu.

Bruce Lee's description of the fight was that Wong Jack Man challenged him to a duel over his decision to teach non-Chinese students. Bruce Lee accepted the challenge. Many who witnessed the fight believed Lee had won the duel, however Wong disputes this. Lee later took the view that the fight took "too long" because traditional martial arts techniques were too rigid and formalistic to be practical in scenarios of chaotic street fighting. Perhaps as a result of this fight, he decided to develop a system with an emphasis on "practicality, flexibilty, speed, and efficiency".

BTW, Kung Fu does not really mean martial art, its more like skill(any skill, lets say, chefs also got their Kung Fu).

Theres no unquestionable proof that he actually ever fought. He did simple demonstrations in set performances and he also trained and acted. He worked more towards theory of fighting rather than practicality of fighting.

I dont think this fight ever really happened. Again...only claims by Lee himself. No proof at all. I realize you didnt write this Grimey ...I'm not sure if you were trying to tell me this was real or not.

Tournament fighting is against Wing chun rules so his master would have not trained him if he had .only thing i know of is this ....Bruce Lee's first formal, organized bout came as a teenager at his high school in Hong Kong. He was to fight a young British boxer, a reigning two-time boxing champion. Bruce knocked his opponent out with repeated strikes, using the Wing Chun technique jik chung chuy.
