  1. Sorry but he practices with almost a contempt look about him. The majority of what he is doing,,especially that multiple attack,,is utter bollocks.
    I know,,I’ve been studying it for 36 yrs!!

  2. All the racist kids here: if he was japanese, you would have all closed your big mouth.
    Second: if you were facing him you would also have closed your big pretentious denigrating mouth: obvious!
    So you really have no honor!
    Spit on recognized master by his peers anonymously on youtube will not availe you!
    You look just like a meaningless band of rascals with hidden faces, because you all obviously are raging cowards and incompetents in fighting: jealous guys!
    And it is not with that proud for nothing attitude that you will reach any close of the level of Steven or other master: you are lacking the humility of true competent people, who works to understand and mastery the laws of physics and control their own body, and LEARN from masters, not spit and laugh on them in big distance.
    Monkeying and mocking is not wisdom or demonstration. You want to prove your points? Tell first your real name like a man and then show a video about your skills, like Steven did, even aplauded by conoisseurs public.
    You really think he just bought a black belt or aikido is just fake show?
    Why is it used by police all over the world and even in MMA so?
    Proofs and explanations:

  3. Aikido is not how to throw and submit your opponent, it's how to throw yourself to the ground to make your partner look like a God.
    That's not a martial art because it reveals ineffective in war. It was shown by many martial artist who beat aikido masters.

  4. Just to learn the full forward roll and full backward roll standing or on your knees/feet takes a lot of time and work. So the point is people talk shit about Aikido. Never took at least one class in a real dojo.

  5. Seagal moved to Japan at some point between the ages of 19 and 21 with his father who was visiting for military purposes, and met karate masters and decided to remain in Japan. He received his 1st dan degree (shodan) under the direction of Koichi Tohei. He continued to train in aikido as a student of Seiseki Abe, Tohei (whose aikido organization, Ki Society, Seagal refused to join in favor of staying with the Aikikai), Kisaburo Osawa, Hiroshi Isoyama and the second Dōshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba. He attained a 7th dan degree and Shihan in aikido, he also holds black belts in Karate, Judo and Kendo and became the first foreigner to operate an aikido dojo in Japan.[12]After returning to California in 1974, Seagal met Miyako Fujitani, an aikido instructor teaching in Los Angeles. He returned with her to her native Japan in 1975 where they married.Seagal initially returned to Taos, New Mexico, with his student (and later film stuntman) Craig Dunn, where they opened a dojo, although Seagal spent much of his time pursuing other ventures. After another period in Japan, Seagal returned to the U.S. in 1983 with senior student Haruo Matsuoka. They opened an aikido dojo, initially in North Hollywood, California, but later moved it to the city of West Hollywood. Seagal left Matsuoka in charge of the dojo, which he ran until the two parted ways in 1997.[13][14][15]He has helped train Brazilian Mixed Martial Artists Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida. Silva, who is the former UFC Middleweight Champion, went on to knock out Vitor Belfort with a kick, in their fight at UFC 126 in February 2011,[16] and Machida also credited him for helping him perfect the front kick that he used to knock out Randy Couture at UFC 129 in May 2011.

  6. Everyone who thinks aikido us useless, it's somewhat true, unless you know how to use it right. Mostly depends on the practitioner. It's possible to break wrists easily with these techniques if used correctly. And if someone is swinging, you need to isolate an arm and take him down emediatly. Do this by closing distance fast and use different techniques. I suggest learning traditional aikido and then study how that can apply on the streets. Add your own way to this amazing art and learn how it IS useful.

  7. i know an old egyptian military has overpower no body in america could bet u about him i'm sure for about 10000/100 THAT WILL destroy the most powrful american fighter in one second go and write in arabic رجل مصري خارق he's power given by lord

  8. You know why he is a dick. These guys are letting him do this. Seagul his applying pressure and hurting them like a bully. Almost like let me throw you then I'm going to inflict pain and hurt you after wards.

  9. 1st, Seagal is a really big dude at 6ft 5 or 6ft 6 , so this style works effectively for him even though it looks like b.s. , believe it or not it can be and is effective in certain situations. And also of course the movies make him look like he's unstoppable and almost untouchable which isn't true of course , are there fighters and martial artists out there who can beat him? Of course there are and have from what I understand, but against someone or several drunk assholes or idiots who don't know what they're doing, he would for sure defeat them. Don't get it fucked up, he's still an expert in this specific style and capable of doing some serious damage to someone who fights him or tries to fight him, in real life it wouldn't be like the movies of course but he's still capable of fucking up and possibly killing someone who attacks him because of both his size and experience. That being said, yes this guy is still an arrogant bastard with a large ego who I used to look up to but lost a lot of respect for. And if you need an art to defend yourself with, this one takes way to long to become good enough to be effective, better off taking Krav Maga, street fighting, BJJ, Muay Thai, and some weapons training. Still nothing against Aikido since I took it for a year, it does have some useful things to learn here and there
