Like him or not but he is a great Aikidoka!
21 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Seen the tape twice. It contains old footage of Seagal's training methods with some of his students talking about him and his style of Aikido. There's also footage of a black-belt test which is hard to pass on first occasion as Seagal sets very strict rules. Example: The Randori (Three on one) where three students come at you at full speed and try to pin you down in any way possible. You'd only pass if Seagal felt you were controlling these people.

Interesting enough the footage of Seagal in his early days. If you want an impression look at the beginning scene of Above the Law where he gives a demonstration.

9/10 from me.
