In 1975, Steven Seagal managed to become the first American who opened his own dojo in Japan. As shown, to be an instructor of the Japanese martial arts, being an American — more than difficult. Seagal is regularly challenged by various Japanese masters — everyone doubted his technical level and wanted to test it firsthand. These “check” continued for two years, and largely thanks to them, Seagal managed to gain a reputation as one of the leading masters of Aikido in the world.
the Philosophy which was put Sensei Seagal is pretty simple — best Aikido which is effective in real street conditions. As a recognized master of martial arts Steven described the technique many Sensei as too passive. In turn, passive Aikido can bring a person in a real fight.
Sensei–Segal did not push his disciples to the constant unnecessary fights, the only thing that he always emphasizes that if you're attacked, you should be able to defend himself. At the same time, Aikido from Steven Seagal closely connected with the philosophical roots of religion Omoto-Kyo, professed himself–Sensei Morihei Ueshiba.
“What it means to me the best Aikido?», — Steven Seagal
the club Ten–Chi, we detail telling his disciples about each of the popular in the modern world directions in Aikido. Thanks to the variety and the opportunity to compare the philosophy and styles of one or another direction, each student will be able to decide what it means to him best Aikido. In his time with this decision and faced Steven Seagal, here is what he says about it:
– I do not take seriously the attacks from the public, when I was trying to blame the fact that I am not a professional. Often criticism I subjected those people who are not even met me. I preach the philosophy of Aikido, to which he came himself, carefully studying the classic style of Morihei Ueshiba. The advantage of my style is that I tried to adapt it to the mindset of Europeans and Americans. Maybe–that you deem it wrong, but I was forced to do circumstances. The fact is that many Americans and not Asians lack the perseverance and patience in order to comprehend all the subtleties of this martial art. Located in what people do not understand is quite difficult, and the discipline is not everything. In its pupils I'm trying to erase all the prejudices that they came to Aikido “empty bowls" that first need to be filled with patience for the painstaking and detailed study of all aspects of the great martial art.
