WHAT HAS TAIMAK BEEN DOING?
If you came to this page you may be wondering, like I did for many years whatever happened to "Bruce" Leroy Green. Well years ago back in the mid to late 90's thanks to some internet searching and a few helpful visitors to my old website I tracked down, Taimak Guarriello, the star of the greatest of movie of all-time. Now he follows me on Twitter an Facebook and we chat once every once in a while. Among other things he has been directing, acting, teaching martial arts and helping people achieve their fitness goals. He continues to train and although he is approaching 50 he's still got the glow and looks like he could still take on Sho'nuff.
Since The Last Dragon Taimak:
I was quite proud that I was able to find him, seeing that back in the 90'sthere was barely any information on the net about The Last Dragon much less, Taimak. Now-a-days with the popularity of facebook, myspace, youtube, Wikipedia and the internet in general it's easy to find and keep up with the hero's of our past.
In fact, I started a Last Dragon group on Facebook, and guess who joined the club, Taimak himself.
See for yourself, join The Last Dragon - The Greatest Movie of All Time Facebook Group. Now he follows me on Twitter , Facebook and Instagram. He even adds his input to this site everyonce in a while.
In the summer of 2009 Taimak was inducted to the Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
He has also put out a series of fitness DVDs titled "Taimak FIT (Find Inner Transformation)" That can be purchased from his official website listed below.
