    You may want to add in a bit about his working with other MAists to add to the curriculum with arts like Mande Muda Pentjak Silat, Lameco Escrima, SHOOTO, Pekiti Tirsia Kali and Muay Thai by bringing and studying under guys like Pak Herman Suwanda, Punong Guro Edgar Sulite, Sensei Yori Nakamura, GT Leo Gaje, Jr and Ajarn Chai Sirisute as well as notable students who expanded the broad base he had established by incorporating what he learned from these men. His notable students include Erik Paulson, Terry Gibson, etc.

    I forgot that he became an RCJ Machado BJJ affiliate after he got his black belt at like 70. Sorry about that.


    Seriously, the guy is amazing.

    I like Inosanto's open mind, and his willingness to keep improving himself in every aspect of his life.

    Here is the list I have for Guro Dan's FMA teachers. It's a combination of a few different lists he has presented, but he's mentioned that they are all incomplete, so this may leave out some instructors. Also, he does not have rank under all of them. Some he trained with for years and still does (like Tuhon Gaje) and some he has only trained with for a short period. The list is in alphabetical order by last name:

    1. Pedro Apilado
    2. Ising Atillo
    3. Kadid Brabante
    4. Angel Cabales
    5. Cacoy Canete
    6. Diony Canete
    7. John Eliab
    8. Rev. Ramiro Estalilla
    9. John Evangelista
    10. Vincent Evangelista
    11. Leo Gaje
    12. Leo Giron
    13. Regino Ilustrisimo
    14. Juanito Lacoste
    15. Ben Largusa
    16. Greg Lontayao
    17. Lucky Lucaylucay
    18. Flesimo Maxcende
    19. Art Mirafloor
    20. Pasqual Ovalles
    21. Braulio Pedoy
    22. Tedero Ramos
    23. Dentoy Revillar
    24. Jack Santos
    25. Max Sarmiento
    26. Emil Saturion
    27. Bo Sayoc (and family)
    28. Telesporo Subing Subing
    29. Mel Subitan (or Sugitan)
    30. Edgar Sulite
    31. Sam Tendencia
    32. Gilbert Tenio
    33. Floro Villabrille

    I can't find my list of his silat teachers, but off the top of my head:

    1. Juanito Lacoste
    2. Uyuah Suwanda
    3. Herman Suwanda
    4. Rita Suwanda
    5. Paul DeThoures
    6. Viktor DeThoures
    7. John Dejunges
    8. Eddie Jafri

    This list is bigger, I'll have to look through my notes to find it.

    In terms of the FMA/Kali teachers, I know Guro Dan has a relationship with Guro Jun DeLeon of Toronto. I attended a seminar with both of them and I thought Dan mentioned that he'd been working with Jun. That said, I'm not sure if Jun would be considered one of Inasanto's instructors.

    I'll check into that.

    You might want to add Remy Presas of Modern Arnis to that list of FMA practitioners.
