One of Dan Lok’s passions in life is martial arts. Like many young kids, after watching a Bruce Lee movie, it changed his life forever. At 17 years old, Dan started training in martial arts seriously because he was being bullied in school. It wasn’t long for Dan to learn the techniques he needed, and gain the confidence necessary to defend himself.

Dan has studied with legendary martial artists such as Bruce Lee’s original student Ted Wong ( and Joe Lewis “The Worlds Greatest Fighter” (, making him a second generation student of Bruce Lee - in Bruce Lee's authentic art of Jeet Kune Do (JKD). He's also a third generation student of Ip Man (Wing Chun Kung Fu).

Dan has also trained with other great instructors like Sifu Adam Chan (, Canadian lightweight boxing champion Tony "Fire Kid" Pep (, and Octavio Quintero (

For Dan, martial arts training permeates every area of life. It’s not a hobby, it’s a way of life, and it influences how he does business.

Martial arts gave him the confidence, focus, and patience to push through these obstacles and to keep fighting when he felt like giving up.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Dan is NOT a full-time martial artist and he doesn't even claim to be that good of a fighter.

He's simply a successful businessman who enjoys the art and philosophy of Bruce Lee, just like you.

He doesn't have any online martial art videos, seminars or expensive "private training" to sell you. Quite frankly, he doesn't need the money.

He simply wants to share his passion for the art of JKD (his own version of Jeet Kune Do) through his YouTube channel.

    As for Bruce hitting bag. It clearly showed he has no form and as for him developing power from those whack ass punches. Not going to happen because the power comes from the ground to the hips to the fist and hips have to rotate and your since Bruce Was Squared Up To The Bag There Was Not much Power IN Those Shots He Was Actually Pushing The Bag If He Had Missed Just One Punch He would Have Fallen On His Face

    Great video, guys. Impressive punching. And in regard to the old heavy bag footage, my recollection—I think from comments by Dan Inosanto—is that, yes, it WAS a demonstration of emotional content like Octavio said. Dan, Ted Wong, and I don't know who else were doing a backyard session and not hitting the bag like Bruce wanted: "Dammit, hit it like it's somebody you HATE!" They still don't get it, so Bruce gives a demo that made Dan go, "Jeez, what'd that bag to HIM?" lol. So, yeah, there's no footwork, head movement, side-to-side because that wasn't the point; it's just full-on, straight-line power punching like you see in old-school boxer training footage (in fact, I believe there's video of Sugar Ray Robinson—a big influence on Bruce—doing something very similar). Also, if I'm recalling correctly, this is when Bruce was returning from his back injury and testing the waters working out, meaning he was going EASY on that bag. Dang.

    Economy of motion plus nature of the flow is what that video footage of Bruce Lee hitting the heavy bag demonstrates.

    Anyone that spends serious time hitting the heavy bag eventually realizes that economy of motion prevent injuries to you.

    The heavy bag is a good teacher of what you can and cannot get away with when it comes to form versus function.

    I miss his studio in my area… But I'm glad I got the chance to meet Octavio when he opened up his studio, got the chance sparing with a friend of mine. I remember I was sparing with a student as well who was trying to teach me how to block with two hands and instinctively I blocked with one mid combo. Seemed that was some what of a surprise to both the student and Octavio standing a few feet behind him and saw. Just something I had practiced over the years in self defense and it felt right in the moment to break up the combo and creating an opening if I wanted to go in for the attack an elbow or fist to the chest or neck chop or push back to create distance or hit eyes. I now train at Training Zone one street over in Marysville where he had his studio. I like using the more Elegant Style of Tai Chi energy distribution. That's where it comes from and I spoke in person about this with him when we met. He said lots of masters actually use Tai Chi. I know he is proficient in it and so was Bruce Lee. That's a good part of jkd. Wish I trained more but didn't have the money to spare for classes. I'm pretty fast for a big guy. Was looking at a bag in the gym today thinking how to use martial arts mix into my work out with a bag. Started messing around with the one inch punch. But this video is perfect for so many reasons, thanks guys. Super helpful.

    Very good videos, Im big fan of Bruce lee, I have all his books where he explains his fighting theory, this Octavio guy is handsome so I hope that Dan Lok doesent exploits him in unethical way, for example during shower or in steam bath
