I concur, Seagal is an inspiration to me too. It's a shame he's not in the condition he was (or similar to) during his early film career in the late 80s - early 90s. However, I do wonder does Seagal still practise Aikido on a regular basis? The impression I got from his Lawman series as well as his involvement with MMA is that he still teaches martial arts, but splits his time between many different things and I'm not sure how much Aikido plays a part in that anymore.
I agree completely. Although i have seen recent videos of him practicing kumi tachi and showing aikido techniques to his fellow cops with the assistant of a japanese uke, he doesn't seem to be as devoted as he used to be.
It's clear that he still practices with his senior students though, but maybe not very often...
