Interview with Jeff Imada

Jeff Imada is one of those names that come up if you’ve ever paid attention to martial arts in Hollywood movies.  Most well known for his work in the Bourne series, he has brought FMA into the mainstream with his intricate fight choreography.  His resume is long and impressive – did you know that he designed and manufactured the first US telescopic baton? This interview from Ikazuchi Dojo describes the amazing experience he had in the ’70s training under Dan Inosanto, and the insane sparring scenarios they came up with!

See a video of him doing knife disarms, from the same interview:
