Did you know he is the top selling artist of all time in germany? If you feel like absorbing some of that patented Hasselhoff magic then stare at the following picture...

It freaked me out too, but I came home one night, and he was on one of Sanma's variety shows. He speaks Japanese quite well for all his action cheese. The way I heard it, I guess he as an ex-wife and a daughter here. The ex-wife as I heard it is something of a well known aikido teacher, or something like that.
What I've heard is that he learned his aikido from his ex-wife's father. Seagal and his ex-wife had apparently been saving up money so they could move to Los Angeles and Seagal could start his movie career, but he apparently took and the money and left without her, more or less leaving her behind.....
...I worked for a guy a couple years ago who had done aikido for about 10 years, and I had a major chip on his shoulder about Seagal.

Courtroom Television Network wrote:Steven Seagal and the Mob
--- from the Courtroom Television Network
.....He claims to have been a student of the founder of aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, who is also known as O'Sensei. Ueshiba died in 1968, which means that Seagal had to have been a teenager, living alone in Japan, to have studied with the master. At least one of Ueshiba's students remembers Seagal being around at the time but doesn't recall Seagal being on the mat very much. He remembers Seagal as the kid who was always playing guitar.
Sometime in the early 1970s when Seagal was in his twenties, he married Miyako Fujitani whose father owned an aikido dojo in Osaka. Seagal eventually ran the dojo for his father-in-law, which substantiates Seagal's claim that he was the first Westerner to operate an aikido dojo in Japan. He also claims to have earned black belts in other martial arts during this period and "fought off" members of the Yakuza, Japan's version of the Mafia. According to Ned Zeman in Vanity Fair, Fujitani, whom Seagal left in 1980, doubts the veracity of this part of his bio.
Seagal returned to the United States and married Adrienne La Russa while he was still married to Fujitani.....

I don't believe a U.S. shodan is any better at the art than a Japanese shodan (except maybe the ones who got that status just from belonging to their college club).
