In every generation, there is one. Fortunately for us, he has returned! Although his country of a origin is a little skewed to the left!

The internet has been abuzz with the sudden rise to fame and prominence of Abbas Alizada, dubbed Afghanistan’s Bruce Lee.

Take a look for yourselves, the resemblance is uncanny:

Not only does he look like him, he has trained himself to fight like him:

By studying the films, he learned Bruce Lee’s moves and how to handle the “Nunchaku” chain sticks, made famous by the actor.

Life is hard in war-torn Afghanistan, and especially for a little boy with big dreams. Abbas Alizada was 14 when he got hooked on Bruce Lee action movies. For a few months he trained at a Kabul sports club, however his family could not afford for him to continue. He was needed back in the household to earn an income. The situation became even harder after his father Mohammad Reza suffered a stroke which left him partially paralysed.
