Of all the people associated with Bruce Lee, Taky Kimura is the finest. That, possibly, is why Bruce Lee referred to Kimura as his senior-most student and made it clear to other students that Kimura was always to be respected by them. Was Kimura the best martial artist? No, but he was the best friend of Bruce Lee and a man of sterling character. Perhaps it was Kimura's moral core, not his martial art skill, that Lee recognized, and which he felt was so important to his art. Since 1964, Kimura has been the instructor of the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute of Seattle. Kimura has never accepted compensation for his work in Bruce Lee's name, and has quietly been the caretaker of Bruce Lee's grave for almost 30 years. He is a man who is universally respected in the Bruce Lee community, and a shining example of the positive impact that Bruce Lee's philosophy has had on people.

One of the questions that always gets asked is how Diana got her name Diana Lee Inosanto. Guru Dan Inosanto explains that Diana got her name Diana Lee from his closet friend at the time, and instructor, Bruce Lee. Guru Dan stated, I was in awe of him (Bruce Lee) and named Diana after him because he was my favorite person at that time and thought it would be pretty cool to be named after Bruce Lee! When asked about Bruces reaction, he said that Bruce was pretty thrilled and said it was quite an honor. Bruce was Guru Dans favorite person and closest friend at that time in his life.
Back in 1964 when Bruce Lee was in Los Angeles for about a month and half for demonstrations, he didnt have his partner Taky Kimura with him and asked if Guru Dan would be his fall guy for his Kung Fu demonstrations. Guru Dan explains he fell in love with Bruce Lees teachings and was amazed at how progressive he was.
