Inosanto has not yet seen the film but says that from his memories of Lee on a working set, he never saw the San Francisco-born, Hong Kong-raised actor being braggadocious or engaging in scraps for the sake of showing off. Maybe he was cocky in as far as martial arts because he was very sure of himself. He was worlds ahead of everyone else.
