John was one of the original students at the Torrance,Ca. school in the mid-1970's.

He later went to Hing Kong and opened up the first school in Asia teaching JKD(John is actually the first instructor out of Inosanto's to open a school,including Paul Vunak,Chris Kent,etc.)

It was John who fiund Dan on behalf of Golden Harvest to come back and finish Game of Death.

Ask John about a variety of topics-JKD,Dan Inosanto,the Hong Kong Film scene(he's worked with them all-Jackie,Jet,you name it).

Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to ask you some questions.....i appreciate your time.

Has Mr. Inosanto ever expressed his feelings to you regarding some of the abuse and criticism he has had from some JKD/ martial arts individuals?

Would you agree that Bruce Lee's fights still look the most realistic fights captured on film....even with more sophisticated techniques such as wires that are being used today?

Thank you once again, and best wishes to you.

Dear John,
I'll get right to the point:
1. what made you to go and learn from Dan Inosanto? Why do you thought he was the right man among such great martial arts names in the States?
2. have you heard from Bruce's students what was his fave tachniques he taught or used to show?
3. do you know from Dan maybe if Bruce ever taught a weapon usage (such as wing chun butterfly swords maybe)?
4. if that's not too personal - what is your personality?
Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Milosz

Hi John

1/ Is a new documentary about you in the works?

2/ Will it show any rare footage?

3/ Have you seen any rare footage of Bruce Lee from the original Game of Death or have you seen any rare Lee GAME writings from Dan Inosanto? If so, could you please describe what you have seen?

Any help will be much appreciated. Thankyou!
