    Rick Young is a student under Guro Dan. Rick is a columnist in Martial Arts Illustrated and holds BB in Judo and BJJ and God knows what else.

    He has written of Guro Dan's generosity towards him in both teaching and (in the initial stages) paying for his instruction. What a Quality Bloke.

    But still, something about having a black guy or a lesbian jump out from behind a garbage can yelling "SURPRISE GONG SAU" at any of your big-named RBSD kooks makes me giggle like a little girl.

    Agreed. My instructor has tapes of some of the Guro Dan seminars that he went to years ago. We don't fully include escrima as a style we include escrima training where I study and it's so much fun. There is no FMA schools in my area that I am away of. Most of it mainly Korean TKD or TSD schools. I think we have a few Isshin ryu schools around and that's about it.

    Guru Dan also studied Thai Boxing under Master Chai Sirisute.

    I heard a saying about how a name is worth more than riches.

    Guru Dan Inosanto has many friends throughtout the world that would help him in a moments notice.

    He's reputation is well deserved.

    I go to Guro Dan's JKD class. Although I haven't yet had the previlege of taking a class class under him (except for an FMA class I took once which was way out of my league), All the instructors I've come across, mean business.

    I know name of only one JKD instructor, Yori Nakamura. He is a great teacher. He teaches by demonstrating. I love how he and other instructors, when they observe my technique, they only tell me one thing to fix. They seem to spend less time talking and more time doing. This makes the classes a lot of fun.

    p.s. I'm an MA newbie.
