Straight from our raw video vault, watch EXCLUSIVE previously unreleased footage of the first-generation Bruce Lee student in action at Black Belt magazine.

"Dan Inosanto ... is one of the people most responsible for keeping the jeet kune do flame alive. He has done a great deal to expose the art of jeet kune do to the entire world by holding seminars and writing articles and books since the passing of Bruce Lee. Were it not for [Dan Inosanto], jeet kune do might possibly have died with Bruce Lee. [He] has also gone into his own roots — searching out the many Filipino martial arts and many of the Southeast Asian arts to offer his students jeet kune do concepts through the interpretation of other vehicles such as kali, muay Thai and pentjak silat. [His] take on JKD is considered an added dimension in the jeet kune do timeline. He has followed his own light and found the best within himself."


— William Cheung and Ted Wong, from their out-of-print book Wing Chun Kung Fu / Jeet Kune Do: A Comparison Vol. 1

Such words of high praise from two of the martial arts' most famous luminaries only serve to further highlight how proud we were when this talented and professional martial artist visited the offices of Black Belt magazine a few years ago to shoot a cover story and a wide range of other photography for future usage.

Below you can see exclusive footage from that day, pulled from our extensive digital-video archive EXCLUSIVELY for this presentation:

Talks About Being a Smaller Fighter in a Combat Sport Ruled by Giants

At first glance, most people — most martial artists, even — will zero in on the smaller person in any fight and deem him or her to be at a distinct disadvantage. It's a natural tendency to draw this conclusion based on obvious attributes such as height, weight and reach. However, that tendency does not always lead to accurate conclusions.
