“The real Kogarah Dragon!”
Reviewed April 6, 2011

Bruce Lee was & still is the coolest, baddest & toughest Asian ever to snap-kick someone in the head. The statue of the Asian Dragon in the middle of the Sydney suburb famous for being home to rugby league club the St George-Illawarra Dragons & head office to St George Bank makes for a clever gift from the people of China. It makes Kogarah one of a few places in the world with a statue of a kung-fu master, very cool!

Donated by Kogarah’s Chinese sister city of Shunde, Guangdong province, the ancestral home of Lee’s family, was a gift to foster cultural ties with Kogarah. The full sized bronze-sculptured statue

The statue is of Lee also known in Asia as ‘The Dragon’ in his iconic fighting pose in full bronze cast, shirt thrown off, muscles ripped & fully focused before launching a flying kick into a group of 20 attackers, maybe 50 but probably 120! This is one for the ladies to admire as well as to all the 30-somethings who grew up arguing with their best friends on who would win a fight between Bruce Lee & Muhammad Ali.

The statue itself is located on quiet Belgrave road, Kogarah, across the road from the Greek Orthodox Church of the Resurrection & about 50 metres from the council building. It is within the square surrounded by a few cafes which is overlooked by an apartment complex above populated by many Chinese-Australians. Kogarah is located about 15 mins from Newtown on the Princes highway in Sydney.
