Bruce Lee carefully annotated each move with his own thoughts.<br />
<br />
Everybody was Kung Fu writing...<br />
<br />
A never-seen-before instruction booklet that martial arts superstar Bruce Lee used to develop his legendary kung fu skills has emerged for sale for £55,000.<br />
<br />
Tragic action film star Lee had used the pamphlet as a teaching manual while trying to make ends meet after moving to the USA from Hong Kong in 1959 when he was 18.<br />
<br />
Lee used the illustrated instruction manual, for the Wing Chun style of kung fu, but made numerous handwritten notes on slight modifications he made to the moves, calling his adapted style Jun Fan Gung Fu, which translates as 'Bruce Lee's Kung Fu'. <br />
<br />
Lee's annotated booklet, which has never been published before, is tipped to fetch £55,000 when it goes under the hammer at London's Bloomsbury Auctions.
