Re: Steven Seagal seems like a jerk teacher. A bit at least...

Why stand up to someone who's rotting before your eyes???

I do recall his getting into a little challenge match with "Judo" Gene LeBell.

It came up this way on a web search:

"Seagal was allegedly trashing (physically) his stuntmen, hitting them hard, throwing them hard, and hurting them. LeBell, who was a past president of the guild, went to Seagal and called him on it. Words were exchanged, and Seagal opened the festivities by kicking Gene in the groin.

LeBell ignored the kick, shot in and took Seagal's back. He then choked him out. Seagal lost control of his bladder, wetting his pants. He woke up, squared off, and asked LeBell if he'd like to try it again--which he did, successfully."

Like Seagal says, "The bigger they are, the harder they fall."
