Re: Do we need another Steven Seagal?
My first sensei taught Aikido for more than 30 years. He was against advertising since it only brought more 'casual memebers' through the door. He used to say that 'If they really want to train with us - then they will find us'. It's against my nature NOT to advertise a bit, but I see his point. Eventually those who are likely to enjoy aikido will probably find out about it and find a dojo.
Being visible and being 'loud' is two different things.. and I believe the types of movies Mr. Seagal makes are quite loud.
