Smile That's me

All right. What do you have to know in order to understand me rightly?

Well, my name's clear and my proffession is student at a german university. I got the brown belt in Judo and maybe I'll do my Sho-Dan exam sometime this year . I've also been to Aikido, Ju Jutsu and other martial and civil arts to see what their training is like.

Why I'm here?
there was an article abot Steven Seagal and I thought the author of it is really right. If you kwon anything about Aikido you'll be totally misled by the techniques he's shown and used in his movies/films - and most of all the spirit that his techniques show about AikiDO( ) . O Sensei Ueshiba'd never have been using Aikido the way he does - cos aikido should ONLY be used in selfdefense and only to show the attacker that his attack is in vain - not kill or hurt him [as far as possible] !

Am I right or not???


And please do me a great favor: answer as honest as possible - even - or rather especially - when you'd have to say "No, that's not my point of view. You're wrong about that."

Re: That's me

Welcome Armin.

Steven Seagal in his movies, is just taking a role. Like a actor he is. He's not necessarily taking a role of an aikido guy (as far as i know)

Steven Seagal, when not filming, he doesn't kill persons, right?

So, probably M. Ueshiba wouldn't mind about Seagal's Aikido. Its just another aikido

Hi Armin,

Welcome to AikiWeb.

As far as Steven Seagal goes, you'll find a lot of threads and posts on him if you use the search function for the Forums.

Hope that helps,

Re: That's me

Thanx a lot!
I've already placed some post in one of those Forums and the answers were really great! Nobody herer really cares about that I'm just a supid Judoka who shouldn't really be knowing anything about Aikido or even O Sensei Morihei Uyeshiba.

Re: That's me

All right! As I told you I am a Judoka. So here are two new pics which were taken last Friday evening as we were training some techniques. I hope you'll enjoy them!

That's me in my Judogi.

This is a typical counter-technique calles "Ushiro-Goshi" which means approx "Hip-Counter-Throw".
