Richard Bustillo, a first-generation student of jeet kune do founder Bruce Lee, was inducted into the Black Belt Hall of Fame as the 1989 Co-Instructor of the Year. Devoting much of his life to preserving and propagating the teachings of Bruce Lee, Richard Bustillo was one of the jeet kune do founder's first followers in Los Angeles and was partly responsible for training Bruce Lee’s children (Brandon Lee and Shannon Lee) in the martial arts. Richard Bustillo's beginnings in martial arts trace back to when he was 10 years old and joined a judo club. His martial arts training over the years went on to include boxing, kajukenbo, escrima, Thai boxing, wrestling, jujitsu, silat and tai chi chuan. Despite this wide array of martial arts experience, Richard Bustillo has always been a believer in Bruce Lee's teachings and jeet kune do techniques, which he evolved into his own version for teaching at his IMB Academy in Torrance, California. In this exclusive video, filmed at one of Black Belt's photography studios, Richard Bustillo teaches jeet kune do techniques based on what he calls "the six gates of jeet kune do."
