    A lot of people think he's Italian, but he's not. He actually is Russian. And he has mob ties in two hemispheres. His aikido practice in Japan and movie career are kind of the side story when it comes to Seagal.

    I don't even see why "is he a good martial artist" matters anymore.

    And really, I don't know how much I even trust the "X vouches for Y" logic that goes on here, having seen BJJ heroes vouch for so pretty shady characters.

    Segal is not respected in most Akido circles. That in itself is damning.

    That depends on the value of an Aikido circle.
