Building Big Muscles, Does it Sacrifice Speed?

I've been weight training for months. The reason why I was doing so, initially, was to build up my body, however, I have recently realised that building up big muscles will lead to the decrease of your body speed, which I am worried about because I wish to become a highly-skilled martial artist. I really want to find a way of having a good, muscular body without having to lose my body's speed. Also, I wish to build up my strength without having too big muscles. I have always thought that lifting lighter weights but with more repititions builds up your strength, as well as your endurance.
I have always admired Bruce Lee's physique, and I am convinced that it is the perfect build to have if you want to be fast and agile, as well as strong. Can you suggest a number of exercises and methods that I can do to build up a body just like Bruce Lee's? Thank you.
