Daniel Arca Inosanto (born July 24 1936) is an American Filipino martial arts (FMA) instructor from California who is best-known as a student of the late Bruce Lee and authority on Jeet Kune Do Concepts.[1]

The Martial Arts[]

Inosanto teaches The Art and Philosophy of Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts, Shoot wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Silat, Mixed Martial Arts and other arts at his Marina del Rey, California school, the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts. He was an instructor for Ed Parker in American Kenpo Karate before becoming a student of Bruce Lee.[2] Inosanto is one of three people allowed by Bruce Lee to teach his Martial Arts style, and the only one to be given Instructorship in Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do.[1] Inosanto also studied with dozens of martial art masters elsewhere in the United States, Southeast Asia, and Europe.[3] After Bruce Lee's death, he has become the principal spokesperson for Jeet Kune Do.[1] He has had minor roles in a number of movies, including the Game of Death (1972). During this time period (1973-75), he also taught physical education at Malaga Cove Intermediate School in Palos Verdes Estates, California.

Always a student himself, he continues to train with many highly regarded martial artists. Consequently, he holds Instructor or Black Belt level ranks in numerous, different martial arts. In addition, he is well known for promoting the Filipino Martial Arts. He is responsible for bringing several obscure forms of the Filipino Martial Arts into the public eye and saving them from extinction.[citation needed] He has recently acquired his black belt in the Machado Family style of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
