      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.

              John DeVries died 40yrs ago, so I think he's out of the running. & be careful, I wouldn't bet the farm on the de Thouars' version of history. The only one in the US you might be able to trust is Willem.

                I know this thread is ancient, so I apologize. I did however want to address this question. Vunak was one of Guro Dan's early students, not the other way around.

                As to the others who have stated how amazing Guro Dan is, I concur. I have had the good fortune to attend some seminars with him and I am consistently blown away by his ability, and his dedication. He has so much to show and teach that his seminars end up like trying to take a drink from a fire hose.
