    Sorry
    Thanks for the post, Mr. Tripp. I remember stumbling across your telling of it elsewhere several years ago. Has Seagal ever hassled you over it?

    Do you happen to know if Gene LeBell or someone speaking on behalf of Gene LeBell ever said later on that, had Seagal not 'assumed the position', so to speak, then he (Gene) would probably never have been able to slap the choke on him, or at least would've had enormous difficulty in doing so?

    I distinctly remember reading someone saying this - possibly a Seagal fanboy.

    Well it's not every day that somebody (especially an egocentrical somebody) has been told that they are the reincarnation of a monk. A reincarnated monk would have made a vow in a previous life to constantly be reincarnated until that vow has been completed. I'm sure that what Seagal is doing would definitely be against such a vow.

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to imply that you were - just that I don't honestly know enough about the situation (or Buddhism) to be calling BS yea or nay...

    Just to be fair to him - he didn't just pull that out of his ass one day. He was actually 'recognized' as such. There were murmurs from his critics that he'd made a large financial contribution in order to make this so but I honestly dunno - meh, I don't want to be the one to diss another man's sincerely held beliefs.

    Oh yeah, he didn't *really* say that he was God in an interview either (much like Dan Quayle didn't *really* utter the 'Latin America' line)...

    I played with some Aikikai Akido people for a few weeks...

    ...of all things, I think it hurt my head the most...:BangHead:

    He pretty much dumped her after he hooked up with Kelli LeBrock. Classy.
    So he's even a disgrace to weeabos? Bloody hell...

    You sir, are a man among men.

    Respect.
