LONGVIEW, Wash. —

A Longview man with Down syndrome who earned a black belt in kung fu after 13 years was honored for his achievement by a special visitor.

Bruce Lee's widow Linda Lee Cadwell, who happened to be visiting a relative in southwest Washington, stopped by Dustin Bean's home on Wednesday and said it was her honor.

The Daily News reports ( http://is.gd/LL4DrH) she watched Bean recite dialogue and mimic the action from Lee's "Fist of Fury" film. She said he moved with the same intensity as Bruce Lee.

She was married to Lee from 1964 to 1973 when the martial arts icon died. Her son Brandon Lee also was an actor who died in 1993 while filming a movie.
