Amy Vorphal, one of my students from 5 Star Martial Arts, contacted me the other day with a surprisingly specific martial arts question. I’m the only person she knows in martial arts and she needed to find someone who could teach the 1-inch punch to the hosts of “Mothership“, the show she works on for @nerdist. Talk about a small world. As luck would have it I started training with Guro Dan Inosanto in 1992 and taught at the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts from 1995 – 2009, so I was pretty comfortable with teaching this technique.
“Birth of a Dragon” the most recent film about Bruce Lee, was about to open and Amy wanted me to teach the hosts of Mothership, Jessica Chobot and Hector Navarro, how to do this technique that Lee (and Wing Chun) was so famous for. It was a total blast working with these people, as the video below shows.
