When someone mentions the name “Bruce Lee“, any other explanation is unnecessary. Well, Guro Dan Inosanto was not only Bruce Lee‘s top disciple but also his master of Filipino Martial Arts. After Bruce Lee‘s death in 1973, Guro Inosanto built a great name for himself being a very requested instructor a rare unanimity in the martial arts métier. He also has numerous participations in action films as actor and fight’s choreographer. It’s impossible not to be amazed by this man humility being the legend he is.
Therefore, it was Prince Gharios‘ privilege to honor him with the highest rank (Knight Grand Cross) of the Sacred Order of Saint Michael Archangel. He has declared:
“The greatest purpose of the martial arts is the person’s refinement and self-improvement. To make better men and women. The fighting is important but just a vehicle, a byproduct. It’s a greater privilege for me to honor Guro Inosanto, than for him to be honored by me. He’s not only a great legend but, above all, a great human being.”
Prince Gharios El Chemor is also a martial artist with almost four decades of experience, holding black belts in Karate, Kobudo (Japanese weapons) and the 5th degree of black belt in Aikido, awarded by the Aikikai Foundation in Tokyo, Japan. During the historical meeting, Prince Gharios humbly requested Guro Inosanto to become his disciple and, for the prince’s priceless fortune, he was accepted.
