Another FNG Opinion =

I can not claim to have been there, but as to the realism of Seagal sensei's Aikido he reportedly had a very rough time with the Yakuza. Sounds pretty romanticized at one end, but consider that at that time (and maybe still I'm not sure) he was the only gaijin American to have opened a dojo of his own over there. Supposedly those little "incidents" got a bit harry at times. I can not as I said, prove it or bear witness to it, that's just what I'm given to understand. BTW, I'm not a Seagal sensei fan as far as that knee jerk reaction can be headed off.

Nature abhors a vaccum and will try to fill it. This scientific law means if we seek with sincerity we will find.
