On April 6, 2007, jeet kune do practitioner Richard Bustillo visited the offices of Black Belt to be photographed for the cover article of the July 2007 issue. Richard Bustillo received the Best Eclectic School plaque for his renowned International Martial Arts and Boxing Academy at the 1st Annual Black Belt Industry Awards held in Las Vegas in July 2006. The International Martial Arts and Boxing Academy takes a unique, nontraditional approach to martial arts training by focusing more on the individual student than his style. The IMB Academy’s concept stems from the belief that no one style is applicable to every person. The philosophy behind this approach is found in Bruce Lee’s jeet kune do, which emphasizes understanding one’s own abilities and limitations and absorbing what is most practical and functional. Classes are taught in kali, muay Thai and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
