Kids Martial Arts Torrance

Sensei Rich Cancino

Sensei Rich started his martial arts training in 1974 in Judo at the Long Beach Naval Base. Shortly afterward he began training in the arts of Tang Soo Do and Kenpo under Ceasar  Lomibao and Chris Bada. From 1980-1983 he studied at the world famous Filipino Kali Academy which was owned and operated by Bruce Lee's protege Guro Dan Inosanto. Here he received instruction from Inosanto, Sifu Richard Bustillo, Alfonso Tamez and Cameron Rico (with whom he has recently resumed training). In recent years, he added Brazilian Jiu-jitsu to his martial arts tool box as studied for a brief while at Let's Roll Jui-Jistu with Glenn and Jocelyn Chang.

Sensei Rich was promoted to Shodan (1st level black belt) in Shorin Ryu karate by Sensei Ford in Feb 2015. His assistance with the children's classes is invaluable to the dojo. He is great with the kids and they always look forward to learning from him, sharing laughs or discussing (or debating) Sensei Rich's beloved L.A. Lakers with him.
