We started this feature mainly to come up with role models for Fil-Americans specially to our youth. We've been called an invisible minority because we tried to assimilate to the American main stream as quickly as we can. We're hoping that by this feature, we can showcase that Fil-Ams too are as successful as other minorities and capable of achieving more.
  • Dan Inosanto  
    Martial Arts Expert
    Inosanto is the heir to Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do and one of 3 instructors certified by Lee personally. He was Bruce Lee's private student, sparring and training partner - meaning he has the insight of what made Bruce Lee a great icon in martial arts. Dan Inosanto is also a major promoter of Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). Aside from Jeet Kune Do, Inosanto teaches Kali, the Filipino stick and hand to hand martial arts. If you will see Matt Damon's movie, Bourne Identity, you will find out how devastating this form of Filipino martial arts is. With over 30 years of training in martial arts, Inosanto is recognized as one of its leading authorities. He wrote several books and have appeared in several movies.
