There are a lot of great instructors in the world teaching Filipino Martial Arts but my question is not who is the best or who has the best system, but who has had the greatest influence in each country or on the world?
In America, my vote goes to Guro Dan Inosanto. Guro Inosanto in my opinion, has had the greatest influence in America and parts of Europe through books, videos, seminars, and movies. Everywhere you turn you see someone explaining sambrada, inside deflection, outside deflection, Hubad, Heaven 6, and so on... In my observations, there aren't many in the Philippines that use Inosanto's terminology or drills yet outside of the Philippines there are hundreds if not thousands of "instructors", that use his terms, drills, and techniques. My only criticism is that the majority of these "instructors", don't give him the credit that he deserves.
Who do you think has had the most influence and why?
