Bruce Lee – legendary martial artist, actor and director died on 20 July 1973 at the age of 32 in the middle of filming. Many believe he died in mysterious circumstances.

Some believe he was killed by Chinese gangsters, others that he was assassinated by Shaolin monks and some say that he was poisoned to death.

But one popular theory is that he was killed by the One-Inch Punch (also known as Dim Mak or the Touch of Death).

What is it? Is it possible? And is this what offed Mr Lee at such a young age?



Jolyon Rubenstein, James Ball and their special guest Sanjeev Bhaskar explore how you train to deploy such a punch, how it has endured in popular culture (‘Kill Bill’ anyone?) and why Bruce Lee’s family seem particularly cursed.
