Re: Steven Seagal Interview

I don't know how true this is, but I read in an interview with Steven Seagal that he claimed seeing Ueshiba M, do an aikido demonstration at a football game halftime show when he was a kid (I think this was supposed to have happened in Michigan). I'm not sure if Ueshiba ever traveled to mainland US.

I heard a rumor that Seagal received his shodan from Toyoda sensei. I might be misremembering...maybe the person meant he received his shodan at Tenshinkan Dojo...not sure.

Not too sure on the veracity of these statements, but there ya go anyway.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
