One thing that raised my eyebrow in the interview was Seagal's statement that he met Morihei and heard him lecture shortly before Morihei died. Seagal said he never trained with him in anyway. Somehow I felt Seagal was being dishonest. I could very well be wrong, but I was under the impression that Seagal didn't arrive in Japan until after Morihei's death.
If I remember correctly, I remember seeing Seagal sensie in a photograph circa 1968-1969 with O-sensei and a bunch of other students. Seagal has huge sideburns. If my memory and this photo is acurate then he did see/meet O-Sensri. Anyone else remember this photo?
