level 1

I watched his most recent movie as a goof because AV Club said it was so bad, and at the time my reaction was, "oh, so he totally just made this movie so he could have sex scenes with this actress..."

Checks out.

level 2

I feel like most of his more recent films he has a contract where he doesn't have to get off the couch, so they just green screen everything around him.

level 3

Someone in his AMA said he knew people who worked with him and that was 100% true.

Back in the 2000s, one of my friends accidentally got mailed a Netflix DVD of one of Seagal's many direct-to-video B-movies -- titled "Today You Die." We tried watching it, and let's just say this: it was apparently a serious action movie, but was basically like one long unfunny MadTV sketch.

No quite his sketch comedy start.

By the time he was on Mad TV, he and performed for years between Detroit and Chicago as part of Second City, with many future and past Mad TV and SNL stars.

Although not of highest quality, it was still seen as a mid-career job for many already successful comedians and writers.

Hell, Andy Daly (@tvsandydaly) was on Mad TV and by the time was part of the Swarm, UCB's first Harold team (directed by Amy Poehler), probably the best Harold team of all time.

MadTV actually had a lot of really great comedic talent, it was the writing that usually fell short.

level 8

It’s not really true, “rebrand” overstates the connections between the shows. In Living Color got cancelled for reasons, Fox figured they could replace the black sketch comedy show with a brown sketch comedy show and offered the slot to John Leguizamo, after barely 1 season they asked him to make the show less brown and he refused, they cancelled him and partnered with Mad magazine for Mad TV.

There was some shared staff along the way, but “rebrand” makes it sound like there was more carryover than there was.

Just my two cents as an MMA fan. His "incredibly martial arts" skills went to his head and he started hanging out with Anderson Silva (and maybe a few other stars IIRC). He was even claiming he taught Anderson Silva a new move. Seagal was taking it super seriously and pretty much everyone was laughing at him behind his back as being a joke.

It's his neck-snap move. You just snap the neck and they die. IT's really funny.

He is "pretty accomplished" in aikido: a cult-like martial art with no real sparring. You never fight anyone, you just twist their arm and they're supposed to go along with it. There's no competitive element, only cooperative training where you take turns doing the techniques on each other.

As I always say: it has all the ego benefits of placing people in painful joint locks, without any of the drawbacks of them actually fighting back.

level 5
56 points · 8 months ago

a cult-like martial art

I really don't think that's fair to aikido at all.

It presents itself as a more spiritual, meditative martial art where the point is zen and disengagement more than ass kicking. But there's nothing "cult like" about it beyond having some "spiritual" elements.

The problem is Segal, not aikido. Aikido is deliberately and explicitly non-aggressive - it's non competitive because it's not meant to be. You're not trying to win, you're trying to do an unexpected joint lock or throw to get an attacker off of you so that you can run away.

Segal coming in with his bullshit macho "I'll snap your neck if you look at me wrong" attitude has very little to do with aikido as it is actually taught, and least in my experience.

level 6

From what I’ve heard about Aikido it seems to be more of an issue with people who take it too seriously like “yeah well I know aikido dont fuck with me!” rather than it being an issue with the art itself.

level 7
11 points · 8 months ago

The unfortunate thing about it actually stems from something that I liked about it - the lack of real sparring.

I liked the "art" side of martial art - meditative fitness that teaches you some self defense. They focus on technique and it's a bit ritualistic. But there's no real stress test, you're never asked to really prove yourself in a fluid environment. You demonstrate mastery of technique to advance, not your ability to actually win.

I liked that because I don't... like fighting. Aikido is a great martial art for people who don't like fighting. That gets it scoffed at endlessly, which I don't think is fair at all to the core of the sport.

BUT... it gets scoffed at for a reason. Because there's no stress test, no proving yourself in a real sense, it's very easy for the "masters" to get incredibly cocky. Which is kind of the exact opposite of the point of the training style, and I think the single biggest problem with aikido right now.

Aikido doesn't mesh well with our current MMA focused martial arts culture. People get into martial arts hoping to end up like an MMA pro. The martial art may or may not help you with that. Aikido doesn't, really, but more importantly it makes it kind of hard for a blockedheaded practitioner to realize that it hasn't.

So you get a lot of unjustified arrogance from a few very vocal people, which has led to Aikido getting a pretty bad reputation as a "fake" martial art. But that really doesn't represent the majority of actual Aikido dojos and practitioners.

Hmmm. Never knew that about aikido. Makes sense though. I wonder how you get belts in that art if the only accomplishment you have is other people giving into your motions.

level 6
12 points · 8 months ago

It's really not true at all though. Aikido isn't competitive because it's more like a very specialized self defense class than a true martial art, and it doesn't really make any pretense otherwise.

The central tenet of aikido is disengagement. Basically all techniques are defenses against an attack, and the subtext (once you strip out all the typical Japanese martial arts philosophical stuff) is that the point is to quickly surprise an attacker with a technique so that you can get away. It's very non-confrontational in philosophy and emphasizes escaping conflict without hurting the attacker.

Most of what students learn is how to fall without hurting yourself, and various things to do if someone grabs you from different angles. There's no real need to "spar" when you're just trying to teach someone how to break someone's grip and force them away.

It's a perfectly legitimate martial art, it just has a much narrower scope of purpose than a lot of others. It's not going to teach you to spar with an MMA pro. But it doesn't claim that it will, and what it does teach you is potentially more useful for a non-expert to use in a real world situation.

See, I knew something like this would come up.

Aikido as it is typically taught makes no pretense of being a competitive martial art. Unfortunately, that doesn't stop many people involved in it from really wishing that it was. Arrogance is a problem with a lot of the less directly combat oriented martial arts. A depressing number of experts start fantasizing about being Bruce Lee no matter what the original point of their teaching.

At the small number of dojos I've been at, anybody involved would laugh at the suggestion that aikido techniques would win vs an mma pro.

Also as a general rule, remember that you can find any schmuck from any group to make a fool out of themselves, and then turn around and say "this is what ____ fanatics actually believe!!!". There's practically an industry built around it. If your only exposure to what aikido is comes filtered through mma site and such, you aren't going to actually get a good look at what aikido actually is about for the majority of practitioners.

edit: I didn't look closely at your video, I thought it was just an mma person kicking the crap out of an aikido guy. It's the no-touch bullshit. That has absolutely no place in any aikido dojo I've ever been to.

level 9

Can you please provide us with some examples of what aikido actually is? I'm genuinely curious.

level 10
7 points · 8 months ago · edited 8 months ago

I'm speaking from personal experience, mostly. I dabbled in it for a few years.

It's as I described in the post up the chain a few from this one: mostly a self defense class mixed with spiritual/mental discipline and well being. If you have a line of "physical group activities to do in a gym" that starts with yoga and ends with underground thai kickboxing, aikido probably falls somewhere in the middle, a lot closer to yoga than MMA is. The "arts" part of martial arts does come from somewhere, even if ass kicking is the only take away most people get from them.

On of the central themes is disengagement. You're supposed to break a hold, knock someone off balance, etc so that you can escape or defuse a conflict. It's not really designed to be used against an expert, trained attacker or in direct combat. You're not trying to "win" by beating someone into submission, you're trying to prevent everyone involved (and that means everyone, a big part of aikido is not injuring your attacker if possible) from getting hurt.

What is it practically? It's a lot of holds and throws, mostly executed in a quick moment to deal with one specific situation. For instance, if a person grabs your wrist to stop you from stepping away, aikido provides a lot of ways to deal with that. If they jump on you going for a jiu jitsu takedown, it provides basically none.

There's also some weapon routines and such, but these are more like the "gymnastics" criticized earlier. The point is learning to control your movement, not beating someone in a sword fight. There's a zen/spiritual aspect of aikido, which also comes into play when it comes to the aforementioned goal of defusing conflict.

He's a complete douchebag. My husband was EOD in the army and worked with the secret service a few times. They were in an elevator once and Steven got in with them, looked at the secret service guys and smirked and said "you guys think you're tough but I could take you" who the fuck says that? God if his movie persona and that stupid reality show weren't enough to hate the guy, that put it over the top for me.

I cannot for the life of me remember what it was, but I was watching a documentary with my wife in which the filmmaker randomly encountered the dude on the street, so he walked up to him with his camera crew, and Seagal just.. tossed his ass in to a fountain.

It looked horribly scripted, because everything he does is horribly scripted, but it was enough of an asshole move for both of us to groan. What a preposterous fuckwit.

Your story sounds on point. I can only imagine the dudes your SO got exposed to. I was in the 10th Mountain from 12-16, but I didn’t do anything that cool! EOD takes balls of steel. ALL of the props to your husband.

You can get into bob disposal as a civilian with a short 6 week 6k$ course but it's very difficult getting work without knowing someone already in the field.
