Bruce Lee, known for his influence on martial arts, also learned from others like Chuck Norris. Norris advised Lee to be open to all possibilities, as ego can blind one's strengths. During a training session, Norris pointed out to Lee that he should be prepared to strike anywhere on the body, not just below the waist. 

Lee took this advice, working on high kicks with Norris and mastering them in six months.

Lee's philosophy was about constantly learning and adapting, avoiding being restricted by set patterns. His creation of Jeet Kune Do emphasized using ideas and techniques from various sources to develop one's own style.
