Okay when I was a kid and interested in Martial Arts Bruce Lee was a big and I mean big icon of the martial sciences. Naturally, when he died his inheritor Dan Inosanto continued on and became a guiding light in the Martial Arts. For myself I met Dan at a seminar just before my 16th birthday oh so long ago at Michigan State University. It was my third martial arts seminar at that point having already attended two seminar’s with Modern Arnis founder Remy Amador Presas. It really was a joy to go to this seminar and train with Dan Inosanto and it inspired me so much that for the next several years I attended as many seminars with him as time possibly allowed. Each one was filled to capacity with technique training and well you definitely came away scratching your head a bit. 🙂 Dan Inosanto certainly affected tons of martial artists throughout the United States and the world. His continuing devotion to learning and improving is what I personally think about when I am contemplating those seminars and training times that I attended. He is an example to us all to keep going and never stop but always continue to explore the martial sciences. Following I have a few clips up here so that you can see Dan Inosanto in action. Enjoy!

If you are able to go to California and train with Dan I would highly recommend it or if a seminar is near you then take that opportunity and train with him.
