Steven Segal
Hi all,

I am a huge Steven Segal fan and would appreciate it if you know of any good sites where I can get articles, interviews or pictures.

Re: Steven Segal

You'll find some videos of him (practicing aikido, and not only)

Look up "The path beyond thought" on Google Video. You won't be disappointed! I sure wasn't and I'm also a big fan.

Hey Andre! I was in Cascais last weekend to meet one of my friends for dinner at a nice Brazilian Restaurant! Only saw a little bit of the town from the train station, but looked like a nice to visit it in the summer time!

Re: Steven Segal
hehe Kevin :)

Yup, Cascais is great in summer, and even in the rest of the year.

It has a very good wether indeed (well, today is raining! Didn't rain for.. maybe a month/month and a half, i guess.. Rained when you were here?) I live in Parede, 4/5 train stops after Cascais ;)

I'm sure we've crossed paths and don't even know :D

Was your competition satisfying? :)

Come by in summer, don't forget! hehe

Great hearing from you Kevin.



Cascais, Parede (where i live) and since Belém to Cais do Sodré, its already Lisbon. And above, there's a pic of the train i'm sure you've traveled with :)

(sorry the off-topic btw)

Re: Steven Segal
Yes took the train from Cais do Sodre. Got some nice pics and had a beer in an irish pub there!

Did not see Steven Seagal there either. (trying to keep in on topic)

Re: Steven Segal
Steven Seagal hosted the Friday Night Project on TV here in the UK last night. Was slightly wooden reading from the autocue occasionally but didn't take himself too seriously, seemed happy sending himself up. Didn't know what to make of the show hosts at times. Did kotegaeshi on a couple of "audience members". Overall fairly entertaining, although I'm not really a fan of the show, would probably have been funnier if I'd had more to drink ;).

Will probably wind up on youtube at some point.

Two is just fine, as long as one leans to the left ant the other to the right.

Re: Steven Segal
I think one of them is Alfred's boring and politically correct twin, Albert. As to which is which, who knows?

And I think that Prince Von Anhalt is claiming he is the father of both...

You know...seeing your two avatars together like that, reminds me of something....hmmmm....

That's it! I remember! The Bush/Gore 2000 debates!! :hypno:

Armin Quast 02-18-2007 04:21 AM

All right then! I'll change that into another one, pal, cos you' ve been here longer and I got plenty of that kinda stuff :D

Armin Quast 02-18-2007 02:10 PM

Re: Steven Segal
All right. What I'd like to know is what you - personally - think of his acting in his films. Is this really AIiki-DO or not, regarding the spirit he's showing.
I'd say that - after my personal opinion - in his roles he's acting too provocatively and that's NOT the way O Sensei Morihei Uyeshiba would have put Aiki-DO but rather its origin the Aiki-JUTSU whose origin was the Daito-Ryu he learned.

I said in his roles because otherwise he would have never been promoted 7th Dan Aikido - as far as I know - and so he's one of very few non - japanese Aikidoka to have received this high level of honor (André Noquet 8th Dan, ...) .

I am looking forward to your answers. Maybe you can lead me on to another thread if this question has already been discussed up to an acceptable end.

I must remind you of the fact, that I've been to Aikido-training only a few times because I am a Judoka. But as you can see I do know a lot about it and thats t my reason for posting here - and not in a Judo-forum which do exist also.

Thanx! [rei]

What? I wasn't that worried about it! ;)

I think that most of the people on here will have more bad things to say about Steven Seagal than good. The subject has been driven into the ground.

As for me, I like his early movies. I guess I'm not an intellectual. There is something about a guy who is righteous and can kick everyones ass in a bar by himself that I find entertaining, I'm sorry. I also think that when Eddie Murphy tore up the redneck bar in 48 hours is classic. Maybe I need to evolve a little bit, who knows?

Re: Steven Segal
Well, seems you should. By the way I also like Films of Wesley Snipes(does Capoeira) especially "The Art Of War" and Chuck Norris (8th Dan TKD). What about them?

Guilty Spark 02-22-2007 06:26 PM

Re: Steven Segal
Is there any other famous movie stars who do aikido either in their own time or as their 'thing' in movies?

aikidoc 02-22-2007 06:36 PM

Re: Steven Segal
I thought Snipes was TKD. Mark Damascas did some capoiera in Only the strong survive.

Norris 8th dan in TKD? His style was Tang soo do-I had not seen him classified as 8th dan anywhere.

Sean Connery did some aikido in the movie he did with Snipes-can't remember the name. He apparently holds nidan through Seagal. There is another actor holding a shodan in aikido but I don't recall his name at this time.

Before everyone starts adding to this thread, go check here:

Re: Steven Segal
Nigel Planer (Neil the hippie from The Young Ones) is an Aikdoka I believe.

Re: Steven Segal
All right, I've checked out the link above: it's great!
I've just wanted to check out this forum by posting into this tread to begin with.
As you might already know I'm interested in Aikido and other Budo-stuff. So please just hit me also with philosophy or whatever you like. If I'm interested I'll check it out ASAP.

Slán anois!

PS: By the way: Stevens name has to be spelled like this:

SEAGAL . It's got to be spelled like this because the name's of irish (gaelic) origin, meaning something like "wheat".

Slán go foill!;)
