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

Shaun, sorry, but I don't see that at all. He put the "big jerk" back in aikido....(was it missing? did we really need it?) but I have never heard of anything he did related to "internal mechanics" whatsoever. I think he has badly misused aikido for his own glorification and has thereby sent very bad messages into the world, using the very great power of a great martial art to imbed them deeply in the common consciousness--the sick actions of a sick mind
Damn, so that is what is wrong with my aikido! Now I have someone to blame! Frickin Seagal!
