According to Martial Arts Entertainment ( Bruce Lai )

Chang Il-Do, or Bruce Lai, is a Korean actor and Tang Soo Do practitioner.

Bruce Lai (Chang Il-Do) real name Chang Yi-Tao, is a Korean Tang Soo Do practitioner and Hong Kong actor who starred in many Godfrey Ho films. He is known for his Bruce Leeimitation, which is what gave him his break into the film industry in Hong Kong, but his Bruce Lee imitations did not do his career justice, it was only when he let go of Bruce Lee and began to act that he succeeded. A good example of this is his role in Blooded Treasury Fight.
