Here's a clip of Sifu Dan Inosanto taking pointers in BJJ:

I find this inspirational. Dan is in his 70s and has god knows how many instructors under him, yet he's not above taking pointers from someone else.

That's humility.

Yes, you have to love Dan Inosanto! He has been a long friend of the Machado brothers. His brother Rigan is my senior instructor/master who I have my brown belt under in BJJ.

A bit of trivia. Dan played the role of the "redbelt" professor in the movie Redbelt in 2008. John Machado was a fighter in it as well as his brother Jean Jacque. Gene LaBell was also in a cameo in this movie as well. Not an academy award winning flick, but thought it was cool that had so many famous "old guys". to also include Ed "Al Bundy" O'Neil. Who, BTW, is a BJJ Black belt as well!

I believe it's under Rorion Gracie and he's been a black belt since 07.

There was a feature on Ed O'Neill not that long ago, mainly about his BJJ practice and black belt. Can't recall which magazine, but it may have been one of those national ones like "Parade" that is inserted into Sunday newspapers. I remember reading it and thinking "Who'da thunk it!" but I can't remember where I read it!
