• i believe aikido was one
  • He is a 7th degree black belt in aikido, and was an instuctor in Japan prior to coming to the USA and starting his film career.
  • Aikido. He is a Shihan (superior master) with his 7th degree black belt in Aikido ... mine is in Ninjitsu. He is the only white man so far to run a highly recommended Aikido school in Japan ... he also has one in L.A.
  • aikido, karate, judo, and kendo "Steven Seagal (born April 10, 1951) is an American action movie actor, producer, writer, director, martial artist, singer-songwriter, and activist. A 7th-dan black belt in aikido, Seagal began his adult life as an aikido instructor in Japan, before moving to the Los Angeles, California area where, after being noticed by entertainment executives, he made his film debut in 1988." " In addition to his professional achievements, he is also known as an environmentalist, aikido master (Takeshigemichi), an animal rights activist, and he has been recognized by Tibetan lama Penor Rinpoche as a reincarnated Tulku (Chungdrag Dorje)." "Steven Seagal was born in Lansing, Michigan. When he was 5 years old, the family then relocated to Fullerton, California, where Seagal attended the Buena Park High School, Buena Park, California. It was at the age of 7 that Seagal first began allegedly studying the martial arts under the direction of renowned Shito-ryu karate master Fumio Demura and Aikido under Rod Kobayashi, the President of the Western States Aikido Federation. He earned belts in aikido, karate, judo, and kendo and in his late teens, Seagal became part of Demura's Karate Demonstration Team and performed daily demonstrations in the former Japanese Village and Deer Park, in Southern California. In 1974, he was promoted by Kobayashi-sensei to shodan in Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido (a fact disputed by his now ex-wife, below)." Source and further information:
  • I've never seen him do over a brown belt technique. He don't pay his bill either.
  • I know some guys here in Staten Island that know him. My take is that he's a total fraud.
  • Aikido, although he has founded his own style which adapts Aikido for streetfighting.
  • Tae Kwan Don't
  • I know he's some sort of highly respected Aikido master. He's no lightweight either, wouldn't want to get on his bad side that's for damn sure.
  • he uses an imaginary style not known to man apart from him.. the only style ever where apparently no one can even touch you! (his films are shit! he needs to at least take a bit of a beating!)
    • Pei Chia-Li
      I like most of his films. I prefer his movies to those of Bruce Lee and Jean-Claude van Damme.
  • Steven uses Aikido, Karate, Judo and any others all combined into one style, (damm how deadly)
  • Hes initially trained in Akido I think. But he mosly uses the secret skills of the editing room.
  • one that kicks ass!
  • Wife beatery and tie'a beech up. I believe he invented it? and The other karate douche, Jean clod van dumb perfected it while on crack and steroids.
  • By the weight he packed on I would say not one of great discipline. I am going to say he is a master at "scripted" martial arts.
  • Originally Akido but if you have seen him lately he looks like he would be more qualified for Sumo
  • Aikido
  • have no idea
  • Tenshin Aikido, with Karate, Judo and Kendo mixed in.
  • movie magic
