This Amazing Kid Looks Like Bruce Lee.. Down To His Abs!

He's been dubbed the "mini-Bruce Lee"—and not just because he's substantially shorter than the martial arts great. It's because he's seven years old.

Japanese child Ryusei "Ryuji" Imai loves Bruce Lee so much that he decided to more or less become him by mirroring Lee's skills and shaping his ridiculously ripped body in honor of the Jeet Kune Do master. In fact, Imai's homage to Lee has been so dead-on that he's even been dubbed the "mini-Bruce Lee"—and not just because he's substantially shorter than the martial arts great. It's because he's seven years old.

Imani first blew up back in 2015—yes, when he was five—thanks to a YouTube video of him perfectly performing one of Lee's nunchuck scenes. And no, it wasn't just a cute video of a five-year-old throwing plastic nunchucks all over the place. The kid literally matches Lee's speed and every single move for the entire minute-and-a-half sequence. Just look.

According to Mashable, Imani started watching Bruce Lee movies when he was a one-year-old and began practicing Lee's moves when he was four. He was at Lee's speed when he was five and now is insanely ripped and constantly working on his martial arts skills as a seven-year-old.

His Instagram account features photos and videos of him pulling off jaw-dropping athletic feats and plenty of side-by-sides of him and his hero, Lee, solidifying that he truly is a mini-Bruce.
