    I didn’t realize there was such a competition between the two! With full respect to Burt, I don’t think there were many people then or many people now that could hang with Bruce Lee.

    Jet Li would make a good modern day Kato! I know this isn’t the proper forum, but I can’t reach you John. Call when you get the chance.

    Hey Kim – I think you are right about Jet Li – wasn’t he in a life of Bruce Lee film recently?
    Sorry I have not got back to you but I’ve been sequestered studying for my windows 2008 test I just passed! I’ll call you later.

    John — It’s been a while since I looked at your website. This was a really fun article to read. As a very young kid, I met Batman at the grand opening of a store in Chula Vista and fondly remember asking Batman where was Robin. He said that he was fighting the Joker in the back stockroom, which was great to hear. I didn’t know that Robin was a black belt, and I didn’t know that there was a feud between Robin and Kato. If I had to guess as a kid again, I would say that it would have been a tie.

    Hey Brason – Yeah it was a toss up from my kid mind too. They were both great. I used to watch Bruce Lee in “Longstreet” too and remember him telling how to be like water in a fight (you know teaching a blind man how to fight). Robin was one to rush in – never to shy away from a fight. I did not hear of him doing another series after Batman.
    It is kind of fun to revisit our influnces as kids and realize that they may have contributed to our desires to suceed at (fighting in this case) our interests!
