Oct 2008 - Oakland Trip

This trip has been in the planning for years but like everything else I didn't get the chance to make it, but fortunately everything came together and I was in a position to go.

Felix’s dad trained at Jimmy Lees home where he also met Bruce, Felix was just a kid away back then, but even still lucky for him that he got to meet Bruce Lee in person.
