If you saw Bruce Lee’s final film, The Game Of Death, you may remember Dan Inosanto from the infamous nunchaku duel. A world-renowned martial-arts master and member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame, Mr. Inosanto has graced the big screen as well as the cover of countless martial-arts magazines. Inosanto has studied and risen through the ranks of international fighting arts, from Russian Grappling to Thai Boxing. His titles range from Guru to Sensei. Although he is perhaps best known as Bruce Lee’s disciple and protégé in the art of Jeet Kune Do, Mr. Inosanto is also widely regarded as a top authority on the Filipino martial arts, which he has been integral in teaching, developing, and popularizing in the United States. Dan Inosanto owns and operates the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts in Marina Del Rey, California, where we sat down with the Master to hear a small piece of his story.
