We all want to look like people we look up to and call our idols. If we cannot look like them, we at least try to incorporate certain traits of theirs into our lives. But Japanese primary schooler Ryusei Imai, looks like a mini version of his idol Bruce Lee.
The 10-year-old kid from Nara in south-central Honshu is grabbing eyeballs on social media after spending quality time of his childhood to becoming a mini Bruce Lee. The youngster has been watching the actor’s films since he was 1 and now looks like an amazing replica of him.
When asked about it Ryusei said, “I want to be as cool as Bruce Lee. I want to move as fast as him.”
Ryusei Imai’s parents often played Lee’s films for their young son. It was when they noticed Ryusei perfectly copying Lee’s nunchaku scenes they knew they had something special on their hands. Says the child sensation’s father, “The phrase Bruce Lee used to say ‘don’t think, feel’, I can see that feeling coming out of Ryusei’s face. It’s the coolest. I love Bruce Lee and so does Ryusei.”
This young lad trains every day. Ryuseistretches and does floor exercises — including one-handed push-ups on his knuckles — each morning and runs outside. He has even appeared on TV in Japan.
The primary school kid draws attention at school because of his muscular frame. He said, “In PE class, whenever I change my clothes, my friends say ‘your muscles are great.”
Wow! This is definitely a lot of dedication and love.
