BodyKore was invited to check out Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts located in Marina del Rey. Walking inside the martial arts studio there are photos everywhere along the wall of Inosanto with many familiar faces ranging from Bruce Lee, Frank Shamrock, Steven Seagal, Kobe Bryant, Anderson Silva...the list goes on! One can not help but also feel the vibe of Bruce Lee within the Academy. There is so much history within each picture along the wall that we were sure all have special stories for Inosanto. The studio itself offers a few different training disciplines ranging from jiu-jitsu, shoot wrestling, muay thai, silat etc. It is one of the premiere martial arts training centers that offers a full range of various styles.
