I have three people that inspire me to train in martial arts. They are Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.Ever since I saw his movie bloodsport I was so impressed that I enrolled in a Karate dojo, and I have been training in martial arts ever since.

JKogas is referring to the fact that Wesley does NOT have a competitive record to judge him on.

Yeah, that Bruce Lee, man, he won all his competitions

Funny response, but in all actuality Jkogas is one of the first people to tell you that Bruce DID NOT have a competitive fight record.

Guro Dan Inosanto. Every person he's so much as brushed by has been influenced by him.

And I think Stefan Bonner is the coolest because A) his technique rocks B) he's a chicago boy and C) well, you saw UFC 50.

The people I have been most inspired by that are still alive are Jet Li, Ken Shamrock, Hulk Hogan, and Arnold Shwarzenegger.

But the man I really look up to is Dolph Lundgren.
Now the shugyo begins!

Hmmmm, well most the people that inspire me in martial arts are dead.

Okay some of the people i'll name won't really have real fight records but they were a inspiration non the less.

Ali at least i'm pretty sure ali is still alive.

I saw this fighter one time he seemed like he beat this guy with ease but i can't remember his name, it might have been something like kong li but i'm not sure.

Jet li of course, he may or may not be good at real fighting but his moves are sure inspiring.

I can't deny the man with the plan named jackie chan.

And theres that one mma dude like i think his name is chuck ladell maybe but i don't watch mma alot so i don't know all their names.

I guess that will do for my list of alive fighters.

Peace unto ye all. ^^

In terms of a JKD instructor...... Tommy Carruthers

Check out his site, maybe he tries to emulate Bruce Lee a little too much, but by golly he is fast!

What others have said:

"When Tommy is on he reminds me of Bruce when I knew him. The first time that I saw him I told him that he punches like Bruce. Tommy is also a very powerful kicker. He has Bruce like speed and power and is more flexible than Bruce was.

If Tommy landed a full force strike in the center of a person's chest there is a chance that their heart would stop. He transfers an amazing amount of shock with his strikes. He has taken Bruce's ideas and turned them into a functional reality." - Jesse Glover (Bruce Lee's first student)

"Tommy is a great JKD'er. But most important his students were also very good. This is important, because not all great martial artists can teach. Tommy can." - Tim Tackett , (JKD instructor of the Wednesday Night Group of Redlands, California)
